take it to the dealer. You should have a 120k mile warranty on it.
I had the jerking as well. Thought maybe it oculd be cleared by disconnecting the battery, but that didn't do anything. Ended up taking it to the dealer and they told me the sensors inside and outside of the cvt were bad, so they fully replaced mine for free. It took them a few days to do the job. In the meantime, they give you a free rental. According to the cvt warranty, you get to drive any nissan vehicle available at the rental agency that they use.
When I had mine done, unfortunately it was president's day and the dealer used Enterprise, so their stock of nissan vehicles was null. Since enterprise didn't want me to wait much longer (I had been waiting for 2.5 hours!), they ended up giving me a dodge durango....horrible SUV! When my car was ready, it was perfect timing too since gas prices went up to $4.75 around my area!!
That dodge durango was a POS...only good thing about it was the rear view camera. The navi was glitchy as well as the satellite radio that kept going in and out and I wasn't even driving in a concrete parking garage. MPG sucked too!
by the way, the dealer didn't disclose what hte real prolbme was. They just said that they needed to replace the whole thing and that it couldn't be repaired.
