Does not excel

Not sure what to make of this:

I drive a 2013 Nissan Maxima sv, I have been having trouble with my car. The car when it was moving i would press the Excelerator and it would move but at a certain point I will be pressing on the Excelerator and it would and then it’ll try to catch up. So today when I was driving I stopped at a red light and the light turned green I had the Excelerator the call would not move at all. What I noticed was the motor was not ribbon nor was the car moving so I figure it can’t be just the transmission.

The motor was not ribbon? Yikes!

Up until the red-light incident, this sounded like normal CVT behavior: the engine revs, and the transmission eventually gets to where it wants to be. They usually don’t stall out, though.

And I am troubled by that phrase “just the transmission,” as though that wasn’t bad enough in and of itself.
