St. Peters, MO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/12/2012 -- Drivers in the St. Louis area can now experience the future of transmissions for automobiles. St. Charles Nissan carries Nissan’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) which offers more ease, comfort, and durability on the road.
Instead of using five, six, or seven gears like typical automatic transmissions, Nissan’s CVT does not utilize any fixed gear ratios.
Instead, CVT uses a smart steel belt/pulley system to smoothly move up and down the gear ratio. Because it uses a belt/pulley system instead of fixed gear ratios, no shifting occurs, making the work much easier.
Conventional automatic transmissions sometimes have a hard time finding the right gear or bump the vehicle around when they lose power for short moments. With Nissan’s CVT, drivers don’t have to worry about their transmission hunting for the correct gear or feeling a little bump when the transmission momentarily loses power. Instead, drivers experience seamless shifting with constant power. The ride of vehicles with Nissan’s CVT is smoother and more enjoyable for passengers with no shifting.
Another benefit of using Nissan’s CVT is that the transmission is much more durable than other transmissions. CVT has less parts moving around so there is less friction and heat that can tear up a transmission over time. Transmissions are not cheap parts to fix so a more dependable and stronger transmission will help save drivers money over time. Because it uses fewer parts, CVT also weigh less which increases performance and fuel economy when driving.
