If you've owned or leased a Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Infiniti QX60 between the model years 2014 and 2018, you may be entitled to benefits from a class action settlement. This settlement resolves allegations against Nissan North America, Inc. concerning the Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) in these vehicles, which some claimants have stated could lead to subpar transmission performance or even failure.

Who Benefits?: Current and former owners or lessees of specific Nissan and Infiniti vehicles equipped with a CVT.

How much can I get?: Benefits include a warranty extension, reimbursement for certain repairs, and a $1,000 voucher towards a new vehicle purchase or lease for eligible class members.

Important Dates

  • Fairness Hearing: The Fairness Hearing took place on March 21, 2022, where the court decided on the final approval of the settlement.
  • Deadline to File a Claim: The deadline to submit a claim for reimbursement was March 22, 2022, or within 30 days of a qualifying transmission repair, whichever was later.

Who Are the Class Members?

Class Members are individuals in the United States who purchased or leased the affected vehicles. The settlement specifically includes those who acquired a 2014-2018 model year Nissan Rogue, 2015-2018 model year Nissan Pathfinder, or 2015-2018 model year Infiniti QX60 equipped with a CVT.

Owners or lessees who paid for qualifying CVT repairs or replacements after the original warranty expired but within the extended warranty terms are eligible for reimbursement. Additionally, current or former owners who experienced two or more CVT replacements or repairs during their ownership are eligible for a $1,000 voucher.

Exclusions from the class include Nissan North America, Inc., its divisions, legal representatives, officers, directors, assigns, and successors, any judge involved in the case, and government purchasers and lessees.

Settlement Awards Explained

Class Members are entitled to a warranty extension for the transmission assembly and ATCU by 24 months or 24,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Specific coverage depends on the vehicle model.

Furthermore, Class Members can claim reimbursement for qualifying repairs involving the transmission assembly or ATCU. The full amount paid will be reimbursed if the repair was performed by a Nissan or Infiniti dealer. Up to $5,000 will be reimbursed for repairs performed by non-Nissan/Infiniti automotive repair facilities, provided the repair occurred within the extended warranty period.

Affected Vehicle Models

The settlement pertains to the following vehicle models equipped with CVTs:

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

Is Proof Required to Claim the Reward?

Yes, proof of the qualifying repair(s) is required to claim reimbursement.

How to Claim Your Award

To claim the benefits of this settlement, eligible Class Members needed to submit a claim form by the specified deadline, along with the necessary documentation of the repair(s). The claim form was available on the official settlement website.

For the $1,000 voucher, qualified individuals were notified by the Settlement Administrator and had to visit an authorized Nissan or Infiniti dealer to apply the voucher towards a new vehicle purchase or lease.

Settlement Amount Analysis

The settlement amount provided by Nissan North America, Inc. was to cover warranty extensions, reimbursements for qualifying repairs, and vouchers for eligible Class Members. The exact amount allocated for each benefit was determined based on the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the number of eligible claims, and the specific repairs or replacements undertaken by Class Members.

Why a Class Action Settlement?

The class action settlement arose from allegations that the specified Nissan and Infiniti vehicles had defective CVTs, leading to a lawsuit against Nissan North America, Inc. The settlement was reached to provide benefits to Class Members while avoiding the risks associated with further litigation and trial.

Nissan agreed to the settlement to demonstrate its commitment to customers and to avoid protracted and expensive litigation, despite denying any wrongdoing or liability. The Court's approval of the settlement was the final step in making the benefits available to Class Members.
