The problem: Pathfinder SUV drivers may note a judder or shuddering coming from the CVT as it accelerates. This may be due to a defective CVT control valve inside the transmission, or the CVT might need to be replaced.
Corrective action: Dealers will either replace the consumer’s CVT control valve or the transmission.
