If consumer affairs confirms it, then it means that the CVT unit uses green fluid which is of different spec than the ATF for the traditional geared unit. Most likely it is green so that dealers don't mix them up. If consumer affairs confirms it then it means everything I wrote so far is wrong and I learned a new thing.
If your fluid is red and it is in fact supposed to be green, then I wonder why you ended up with the wrong-spec ATF. Did you ever have it serviced since you bought it? It is also worth checking to see if Nissan didn't change the ATF coloration since the CVT Altima has come out. That's a possibility.
Maybe more CVT users should chime in on this with their color.
