Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


My CVT also has a slight delay before selecting when changing N-D, so did the demo I drove before buying. I dont find it a bother, but I have a different question.

When powering up the dash has a SPORT light that comes on and goes out.
The maual says the SPORT light will illuminate for a short while in models fitted with a sport option.
The picture shows a button on the gear lever for selection.
Do you think it is possible to fit a switch to select sport? If it is like other gearboxes with this it could mean you could get higher revs in every gear for more torque. Any Ideas

Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


Hi Mike,

The following is out of the Electronic Service Manual.

So it seems that sport mode is meant to hold gear while decelerating instead of changing up as usually happens when you lift your foot off the accelerator.

The diagram for the switch wiring is

Now interestingly this has a note to say the sport mode switch is only fitted in models without manual mode.

From the two of these I would say that sport mode on your CVT would be redundant as manual mode lets you maintain the current gear selection to increase engine braking and torque transmission.

Thanks Kev for the SPORT info. Another of the mystery documented issues in the owner manual put to bed.

==============================

As a CVT equiped vehicle owner, and knowing they don't repair them in Australia, I searched around for any info that might give me some reassurance my car will be repairable in the future. If the CVT fails when out of warranty, I'm left with a piece of junk - not the normal car owning experience and IS a bit of a WORRY tight now.

In searching I came across the following link to a fascinating site:

also this: (click arrows to scroll back and forward to other photos - they show lots of interesting things about a worn CVT ie metal bits and a very metal dust clogged filter)

eg --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

The videos near the bottom of the page are very informative about CVT operation and if you hover your mouse over the bottom video (and the others I think), a playlist appears along the bottom with some other great videos.

Enjoy

I'd love to hear comments here from fellow owners with similar worries, information etc.

I too would be worried, especially if Nissan still won't recognise that their CVT transmissions aren't as good as they first thought.

Hey Cooch - I'm not sure they aren't as good as first thought. Mine is running great (now it's a new one +12,000kms so far) and there are lots of cars now with CVT (Mitsubishi's etc).

Also haven't heard of any replacements/failures lately here.

More worried when the inevitable wear and tear leads to needing an unavailable rebuild and the car is thereby rendered disposable!!!!

Still - your point taken at this stage

Re:


Hi Guys,

As a previous T30 automatic driver, I am finding it hard to get used to the new T31 CVT and the way it operates. I am still trying to find that optimal pedal position, but it seems that everytime I take-off from the lights, all I could hear is the engine revving its guts off and the car is making a steady increase in speed. It all goes quiet when the speed reaches 40-60kms/hour and the CVT starts to operate more freely.

I like the smoothness the CVT bring to the T31, but I haven't quite got used to the initial acceleration of the car [sign in to see URL] because in mind I am still waiting for that gear change?? LOL emoticon

Anyway, am not sure if what hearing in terms of the engine laboring is normal and the way the CVT should operate, I might be killing the Red Bull before its first 1000kms inspection service. hahaha emoticon

Re:


I give it enough pedal to get up to about 3000 rpm and find I am leaving most people behind. You will find that you do not need to give it as much pedal as you are used to doing.

Re: X-Trail T31 - CVT transmission


Same here. I find it kinda knows that you need a bit of extra go when you hit about 3500 and hold it there for a bit. Put your foot down after it feels like it is leveling off. I also quite like the lack of gear change when the driver next to you looks like they are jerking through the gears!
