Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


Ahhhhh, but could a whole new engine and gearbox be fitted rather than just a CVT gear box?

Are the engine mounts the same for each motor and is the rest of the running gear the same or diifferent? emoticon

Everything is different Jamie and that includes the engine mounts.

The T30 and T31 need to be treated as two completely different cars all together.

Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


Greetings
I have noticed a delay in my CVT when I engage D from the N position.
When I first got the car the shift seemed a lot crisper but now there is a lag like

Engage -2-3 - Go

Its been in to Nissan for assessment but no error codes are logged.
Feedback/observations would be appreciated.
Regards
Kenny

Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


Hi Kenny,

I noticed the same thing with mine a few weeks ago. I couldn't work out whether the delay hadn't been there when I bought it (or had been far shorter) or I just hadn't noticed it before. As you say you can the seconds between shifting the lever and the gear engaging. I've probably got to go into the dealer next week anyway so I'll ask when I'm there.

Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


G'day,

I think the slight delay is normal mine has a lag when going R-N-D and less of a lag when going N-D.

The hardest thing to get used to for me is having to engage the ignition to move it from park to neutral when I want to push the car forward in the garage instead of starting it and moving it.

Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


Hi Kenny,

I checked with the dealer last week and they said that this is normal. They also said that the small jolt you feel as the gear engages can sometimes be worse if the engine is idling at slightly higher revs (maybe due to running aircon etc) or if the wheels were on an angle rather than straight (didn't fully understand that bit!).

I was also interested to hear that they consider the CVT to be a relatively weak gearbox when compared to a traditional auto. I was asking if he knew of any intentions to fit the CVT to the Patrol or the Pathfinder but he said that as far as he knew this would not happen in the near future as the current design may not stand up to the hammering it would take from the larger engines pulling far heavier vehicles. Only time will tell if it is in fact a weak gearbox and weak point in the X-Trail, especially for those of us who take them off road and maybe stress the gearbox more than the average driver will on the road. Until then I'll just enjoy driving it as I certainly prefer it to a standard auto in most situations.

Paul
Thanks for taking the time to follow this up. (3 cheers for u)
It may have been my imagination but I thought I noticed a change after I went on the Hunter Range trip.
It wasn't a hard trip nor did I feel as though I stressed the vehicle at any time.

I certainly enjoy driving the CVT and the seamless buildup of speed is great.

I will keep an eye on things and report back after the Yengo trip.
Cheers
Kenny emoticon

Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


I read somewhere that there is less moving parts in a CVT so it should be stronger and more reliable . What about the diesel ! they didn't use the CVT but put an Auto in it ! They also reduced torque in the Diesel to suit the Auto . This may be a drivability issue and not a strength issue though . I have found the CVT in my Ti T31 to work just fine with no issues.

The Auto is not available for the 173 hp dCi. Dealer told me that it would not handle the torque.
