Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Well first off, non matching tires on these AWD Muranos o cause problems. Most of those problems consist of transfer case and differential issues though, not the CVT transmission itself.
The different size tires MAY have triggered the light, but if the light was on before you even started driving it off their lot then that's less likely if all they did was drive it out of the bay.
What were the symptoms when the car broke down on you? what happened exactly please?
A loud sound in the back of the vehicle does not really sound transmission related to be honest. Sounds more like a rear differential or prop shaft issue. Granted it could be an issue with the CVT, but they usually whine or howl or something of that nature when they start to fail. Then your unable to accelerate all together usually.
Since I am not with the car though, I would have to assume they made the right diagnosis. If the car happens to have low mileage (under 120,000 miles) then the transmission is covered under the CVT warranty extension.
While I have seen different size tires cause damage to transfer cases, I have not seen the CVT itself take damage first. So in order to build a case you need to see if the transfer case failed.
Let me know how else I can help please.
if the rear diff is not damaged then it wouldn't have had any effect on the CVT failing.
you can have your VIN checked to verify the purchase date with a dealership.
but the CVT warranty extension is for 10years/120,000 miles to ALL murano owners up till 2010. every owner in that year range
you may be close on the 10year limit, but with that low of mileage Nissan would likely honor it regardless of it it was over or not.
if it is the CVT, should be a free repair for you on this one.
Glad you came here to ask about it.
