i have a 2008 nissan sentra has been replaced with a 4th transmission ,it only has 65,000 miles
brand new 2008 ,original trani went out after the first year,replaced with a second went out soon after ,replaced with a new transmission called a cvt ,just recently gone out ,warrenty replaced with a remanufactured ,car well maintained ,can anyone make any suggestions i'm frustrated
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
thxs for the reply ,I have just recently contacted the Nissan corporation regarding this matter,after the 2nd trani ,i got ahold of Nissan and they did replace the trani with a new CVT 10 yr warrenty or 100,000 miled whatever cms first .The car was only 2 yrs old less than 20,000 miles,Now the cvt tranis gone out cars 4 yrs old ,did everything i was suppose to keep it maintained at 3,000 miles,have only a NISSAN certified tech work on it The car had a engine light cm on took it for a check-up the dealership said it was a bad battery,so needless to say 2 weeks later between Arizdesert 117 degree temp and Calif,the car just stopped .Got it to a Nissan dealership and behold it was the .,cvt trani that went out ,Now in in touch with the Nissan corporation a 4th tranis in but a remanufactored 1 yr warranty or 12,000miles ,With the history of this brandnew car only had 3 miles when i bought it,mind u,i am waiting for a response regarding a bye back ,but i am also considering looking into the lemon law thxs again for the feed back
