  1. CVT transmission overheating issue

    4th Generation Altima (2007-2009)
    Hi all, bought me a 2008 Altima last year, so now have had it for about 16 months. Really like the thing. Had like 141k on it when I got it. Last June was going on a trip, extremely hot out. Tranny started whining, climbing RPMs, couldn't even get it to 70mph on the interstate. Pulled off...
