The transmission would down shift to lower speed 60mph in high speed traffic, nearly causing an accident. This has happen about 3 times. If the outside temperature is 85 degrees or above the transmission fluid overheats causing a sensor to down shift transmission. Now the service engine soon light has turned on. Took vehicle to Nissan dealership, was informed I would need to replace transmission. Read online complains about cvt transmission on Nissan vehicles is a big problem.
