Case Summary:

This is the latest in a number of settlements over several years regarding the continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) in certain Nissan vehicles.

The complaint claimed breach of warranties, negligence, and fraudulent omission, among other things.

Docket Number:

3:21-cv-00099

Company: Nissan North America, Inc.

Filing Deadline: March 22, 2022

Objection Deadline: February 22, 2022

Exclusion Deadline: February 22, 2022

Final Approval Hearing: March 21, 2022

Proof of Purchase:

You do not need to submit a claim form to receive the warranty extension or, if you are eligible, the voucher. If you wish to make a claim for repair reimbursements, you must submit a claim form by March 22, 2022, or within thirty days of the qualifying repair to your vehicle, whichever is later. The claim form asks you to submit documentation but does not appear to require it.

Eligibility:

You may be eligible if you bought or leased any of the following vehicles in the US or its territories, including Puerto Rico:

- 2014-2018 Nissan Rogue
- 2015-2018 Nissan Pathfinder
- 2015-2018 Infiniti QX60

Typical Settlement Amount:

Benefits: (1) Extension of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty applying to the transmission of your class vehicle. (2) Reimbursement if you paid for qualifying CVT repairs or replacements that would have been covered by this warranty extension. (3) Voucher towards the purchase or lease of a new Nissan or Infiniti vehicle at an authorized Nissan or Infiniti dealer for qualifying current and former owners of class vehicles. (4) Expedited resolution program through the Better Business Bureau if you have claims related to your vehicle in the future. You may choose either reimbursement or a voucher, but you may not have both.

Note that even if your vehicle is now outside the mileage and time limit claims of the warranty extension, you may still receive reimbursement for qualifying repairs that were performed while your vehicle was still within those limits. You may also be eligible if the replacement or repair of your transmission was recommended or diagnosed before your vehicle was outside those limits.
