I have a 2014 Nissan Versa SV. I don’t know much about cars but a few days ago I felt like my car was struggling to go faster. The RPM’s were high and I wasn’t even going fast. It felt like the car was trying to change gears but was getting stuck. I had a mechanic friend drive it around and he noticed the problem I mentioned. He said that it was probably the transmission. I took it to the dealership to get it checked out & to see if it was still under warranty. The dealership said it wasn’t under warranty and that the results were this,
“ROAD TESTED 8 MILES BUT CAN’T DUPLICATE THE LACK OF ACCELERATION AS DESCRIBED, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE TRANSMISSION IS STARTING TO WEAR INTERNALLY AND HAVE JUDDER. TECH DID CONFIRM CHECK ENGINE IS CAUSED BY A DIFFERENT PROBLEM, P0302 CYLINDER 2 IS MISFIRING MAINLY AT COLD STARTUP CAUSED BY LEAKING INJECTORS TECH RECOMMENDS ALL 8 DUE TO THE MILES BUT CUSTOMER CAN PURCHASE ONLY 2 FOR THAT CYLINDER ON THIS ONE TIME REPAIR.”
Could this really be the problem? Could this hinder my acceleration? I’ve read that a lot of people have had issues with the transmission on their Nissan Versa cars and that the dealerships don’t want to help or say that it’s something else. This problem just started and I just want to get my car back to normal Any advice?
