2009 Nissan 370Z: Transmission Replacement

July 15, 2009


Last time we posted on our 2009 Nissan 370, it was on a tow truck entering the gates of Santa Monica Nissanwith a stuck transmission. Caroline hinted that she thought it was stuck in a gear, she was correct; it was stuck in third with no remedy. Well, Nissan SM called me Monday morning with good news: the issue was not our fault and would be covered under warranty. There was also some bad news: The transmission would need to be replaced (dealers rarely open transmissions, it's just not cost effective) and a replacement would not be available until Thursday.

We'll post more news if we get any, but for now, follow the jump for some pictures thanks to Photo Editor Kurt Niebuhr
