I will try to pay attention to the regen meter next time. It happens a few times a week. I drive in a hilly area so i do a lot of coasting. I assumed it was normal, but am paranoid.Scott said:Watch your regen (charge) guage next time you coast or go down a hill and see if it corresponds to the jerking you refer to. MY CVT will sometimes kick in and out of regen mode going down hills or coasting giving a a little jerking/bucking feeling. I never worried much about it as I think it's normal.
Thanks.jbrasure said:This sounds like the classic EGR valve problem. Search for EGR and see if you find anything.
I also have an Insight CVT and a Nissan Murano CVT. Neither of them do this.
Would you believe ever since i posted this it has not done it!!! go figure. i was trying to replicate it for my husband. lol.Valiant118 said:My '04 does this in exactly the same spot every time. The spot is right by my house. The regen stops abruptly, but starts right back up once I/m past this particular spot. Does it in both driving directions, too. Has never sone it anywhere else, go figure.
Mine has been doing this too for the past few months.egarten said:My 2005 has been jerking when I accelerate for a few months now. The dealer is clueless, naturally. I know more about the car than they do. They kept it for a couple days and said it didn't jerk for them.
There are alot of older posts concerning this problem on this site so it's not uncommon. It is annoying, though, and vaguely worrying.
