Default Altima HYBRID Transmission Failure (2009)

Hello, Have 100,000 miles on my 2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid and my 10 year warranty is up in a week. I have had an MINOR issue with my transmission (NISSAN mechanic says it is a non-cvt) for a couple of years - had it checked a couple of times in the past - mechanic says all is good based upon:driving test & no computer error codes. They advise me they rarely see any transmission problems on this type of transmission (but they see many many failures of their CVT transmission - which is all they make/use now). While I tend to believe them - as they are very reputable and NISSAN certified - I am concerned with what I feel as my warranty is about to run-out and the car is 'salvage value' if the transmission fails at this stage in the car's life if I have to pay for it.

When I start off from a dead stop(and every time I do so), I feel about three small bumps - as if something is slipping the tinyest bit and then catches, slips, catches and then maybe one more time. The transmission does something similar if I slow to 20mph and then speed up a bit. These are small bumps/slips that are always there but only slightly noticeable to me - but not to someone in the car with me that is not driving. I don't always think about it but I do, I feel it when I am thinking about it.

This week I am going in for my LAST checkup before the warranty expires. Does anyone have any experience with this transmission that you care to share? Or has anyone had a failure of one if these transmissions? I am not sure that this is something that needs to be fixed (rather I just accept it). What do you think? Regards, Jerry.
