Mine isn't in the list.
Probably going to get shafted for this but seems I'm the only one that the reprogram worked.
It's been approx. 2000KM since the reprogram with not one judder.

Haven't heard of many people who only had to get the reprogramming. You are lucky.

I haven't put down on the Pathfinder yet, mostly because the judder seems like an issue I don't want to have to deal with.

Indeed.

It's kind of nice to hear someone had an easy process and not continous back and forth with the dealer just to get somewhere.

My situation isn't a choice either... knew about the judder, took my chances and bought anyway, and thought I lost when I experienced it several times in the first week.

I paid (way too much) for a 1-day membership to the nissan-techinfo.com site and armed myself to do battle with the dealer to try and get our new car fixed. And then, before I could even find time to make an appointment, the judder stopped completely and hasn't done it again in months.

So just giving Nissan $20 and reading the full TSB was apparently enough to fix ours...

Mine juddered initially after the TC was replaced, but iI swear it's been downright perfect for at least 3000 miles. I answered that the TC replacement fixed it, but who knows... Consensus here seems to be that if it's ever juddered, the CVT is already damaged and will need replacement.

I'm in the same boat as Jerico, sort of.

I hadn't experienced the judder prior to my firmware update being done. Fortunately they have continued to stay away post update.

¾ of those views are likely search spiders. Page views are mostly bogus.

I think many visit this forum but haven't created an account.

I think the poll would be even better if it set a minimum mileage for answering it, such as 6,000 miles / 10,000km. The fact that I haven't had the judder after 2500km probably isn't as informative (but is now included in the poll).
