My grandfather has a 2010 Nissan Maxima and the CVT just went out today at 85,000 miles. I know Nissan's CVTs usually go out quicker than most other transmissions, but are they really that bad?

About how much would it cost to get a new one at a mechanics?

There are people on other boards that have 150,000 and more on their CVTs.
However it is true that Nissan ahs not had all that much luck with them.

Even tho your Dads tranny is 10 yrs old since it only has 85,000 miles so i it should have lasted longer.
I once owned an '09 and drove it hard , loved it too..but I bought and sold it w/ lower miles.

Some put in tranny coolers and are extra religious about fluid changes and this anecdotally seems to help.
Getting a re-manufactured one from Nissan may be too expensive.You are talking 5k minimum from what I hear.

I would look to pick up a low miles used one from a junkyard.

PS: And welcome to the board.. We are primarily a Pathfinder board but within our expertise are happy to help anyone.

It was spam. I deleted the "preheat battery" after the question that linked to a vape site...but left the question to show that not all posts that seem legitimate are so.
