            Nissan North America INC and plaintiff’s in three class action lawsuits have reached a settlement agreement over defective transmissions.

Owners and lessees of certain Nissan and Infiniti models equipped with FK-k2 continuously variable transmissions may qualify for compensation under the terms of this settlement.

Six plaintiffs across these three lawsuits all allege that these transmissions shudder and or vibrate under acceleration. This defect leaves the vehicle at unreasonable risk of an accident, and putting drivers and passengers at risk of serious injury or death.

Owners and lessees who are affected by this lawsuit will have two options. They can either have their warranty extended by 24 months or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first). To receive this warranty extension owners and lessees don’t have to do anything. Or owners or lessees who had at least two replacement or repairs to their transmission, torque converter, or valve body may qualify for special pricing for the purchase or lease of a new Nissan or Infiniti on or before March 15th, 2018.

Owners and lessees who want to opt out must do so by May 17th, 2017.
