sounds like its a big ol' POS. I would get rid of it if you cant keep a transmission in it. sounds like its more trouble than its worth.

I've never, ever, heard of a 5 year old car eating 4 transmissions. Or any car eating 4 transmissions!! Sounds like there is an underlying problem that is causing these failures. My first guess would be something electrical. Like a bad ground, or faulty computer. If it's an automatic has anyone checked for a cooler leaking antifreeze into the transmission lines? Have the cooling lines been flushed or replaced? At any rate, I'm very sorry to say this, but if you can afford to, get rid of it. This car sounds like nothing but trouble. Since you bought it new any recourse through the Lemon Law? Perhaps Nissan can be forced to buy it back. Talk to your lawyer!! HTH. -Jim
