Yes, they love replacing transmissions. Your 2007 Murano might have a previous version of the transmission. I think they might have changed them in 2008. But it is still the same situation.I have a Nissan Murano 2007 (purchased in 2010) and I am the second owner. The car has lot less mileage on it @ 85Kmiles. I am sorry that I am posting in a Altima forum. The main reason is that the DTS error code I got (P1778) is matching with what other have been receiving in this topic/thread.
The local Nissan service center is recommending the replacement of the CVT
Is there a place where I can get any CVT repair/servicing done (I live on the west Spokane) ?
Any advise is appreciated.
Your best bet, if you aren't inclined to do the work yourself, is to call the local transmission shops and ask if they work on Nissan CVT transmissions and whether they are able and willing to work on the valve body parts instead of just replacing the whole transmission. The Nissan service centers and almost all transmission shops will want to replace the whole transmission, because it is a nice profit for them. I doubt you'll find one who will just work on the valve body (which doesn't require removing the whole transmission, which is a large part of the cost in labor), but you can try.
