How much does it cost to replace a Nissan CVT transmission?

My Nissan has been having transmission problems lately that I think will eventually lead me to a full transmission replacement. I loved having a CVT for how smooth it makes shifting gears but now I’m worried the specialty transmission will cost a fortune. What’s the replacement cost for something like that?

The cost to replace a Nissan CVT transmission varies depending on the spec details of your car but will generally land somewhere between $3,500 and $8,000. You may be right in assuming the CVT transmission is a bit more costly than a traditional gear transmission.
Hopefully, your Nissan CVT transmission replacement lands closer to the first estimated price, but either way, that’s a pricey repair. If you’re looking to
