Re: CVT refill capacity after drain only

Ditto on the Discount/America Tire road hazard warrantee: I used it once already on my Kizashi to fix a hole when a caught a screw on freeway. Also, I like it because of free balance and rotation; I take mine in every five thousand miles. On my previous vehicle I got a new tire (for the price of the...

Re: Cabin Air Filter

I have yet to replace the filter. I am still collecting data about aftermarket filters availability. The dealer’s price is outrageous, over $150. I contacted UAC about their filter. They said they didn’t sell it, and sent me to their competitor, who doesn’t even list anything for Kizashi. That was c...

Re: Finally bought one. few comments and questions

I think I finally got it closed but i noticed that the backend is slightly angled up. Is it normal. Actually, this does not sound normal. Try to do the “Sun Roof Motor Initialization,” maybe it will fix it: 1) With ignition mode of keyless push start system in “ON”, press “TILT UP”-side of sun roof...
