Hi,

I own a Nissan Rogue SL AWD 2019 since February 2019. I do a lot of traffic driving in the Montreal (Canada) area. I noticed that there is a jerk in the transmission when "slowly" accelerating from 0 to ~20 km/hr. As soon as there is a shift, if I drop the accelerator it gives a hard shake.

Now for someone driving normally, you don't even realize this, but for someone driving everyday in traffic, it is VERY annoying.

I've been at the dealer a few times. Initally they though it was a defective Body valve. They changed it and it was OK for about 2 weeks. Started jerking again. They changed the transmission and right from the get-go it was still doing it.
They told me it is a product defect and that they cannot do anything about it at this point. I've had a Mercedes C300 2013 and a Subaru Legacy 2013 in the past and they've never been this jerky. I though with the CVT it would be 0 jerky as it "doesn't shift". I guess I was wrong...

Has anyone else experienced this or could someone with a 2017-2020 Rogue model try this out? Go from 0 slowly until you feel your first "fake shift" and as soon as you do, drop the accelerator and you feel a jerk.

Thanks,
Nekoso

That's been happening with my 2014 Rogue since it was purchased in 2017. I've just accepted it and dont even bother thinking about it anymore.

It may well be slip and bite, the trans type is well known for it due to the drive method. The chain slips a bit then the VB clamps down the pulleys harder to then lock the chain and it then goes.
