Are all 2014 Infiniti QX60 equipped with the FK-*k2 CVT transmission? I understand QX60 vehicles affected by the shuddering/juddering have this transmission(chain driven -- apparently the belt driven designs don't have this problem). How can one find out if this is indeed the transmission on the vehicle?
In manual mode the chain driven cvt has 7 "fake" gears whereas the belt driven has only 6 "fake gears. Pretty sure they stopped using the belt cvt starting in the late 2013 JX35s. Not sure if any specific years of the chain cvt were more problematic.
What is a "belt" drive vs "chain" drive?
Nissan has the "XTronic", which is a belt they touted.
Does Nissan have a chain CVT now? (Similar to s Suburu).
Maybe thats why it slips in the QX60 because its not able to
handle the torque.
