11/28/2020, at 146,857 miles. number 3 pooped its tranny.
Whine, then screaming whine, then no go.

Had it towed (34 miles) to the house. Started it to close a window, and tried it. Moved forward, reversed. Hmmm. Did it again to confirm; no weird noises, and it moved.

No idea about recall; imagine the dealer checked the fluid last week during oil change.....(assumption).

Sorry to here of your loss. I suspect the pick up screen is completely clogged over with primary failure grindings. When it sets for awhile , enough of the debris falls letting the fluid get by momentarily till it clogs over again. You have contributed a lot to the Kizashi following and Im not ready to here of you switching to another car brand . I know you arent going to have the car towed 8-9 hrs to get it here. So , is there a chance you would be interested in having the trans pulled there, drive it here and I could repair your unit and upgrade a few trouble spots while you wait ( 3 hrs maybe). This would make it ready for another 150 k miles even with your thrashings for a special Kizashi Club price ? Ill pm you that amount.

I thank you most sincerely for your oh-so-kind and generous offer.

Being retired, finances are currently not optimum, and the wife and I are discussing options.
I mean, since the car overall is heavily trashed/thrashed and needs significant additional work. A lot....

I appreciate the offer, and may reach out for more details from you.

My gut tells me I need a new car......

2020 just keeps on giving....very sorry to hear of the loss of what is very likely your last Kizashi. What a run though. How many total miles did you end up logging?

EDIT: from your other post "378,874 miles in those 3,629 days."

OT, very kind of you to offer such assistance to our Kizashi poster-guy (sorry Tim... poster-child simply can not apply).

Alas, the day has come. Sorry to hear that your Kizashi's CVT gave up. While it's awesome to hear that Old Tech is offering a repair for what I'm certain is a generous arrangement, I can imagine a trek from Vermont to Pennsylvania is arduous at this season in addition to everything going on. You were also talking lately of vehicles to inevitably replace the Kizashi. I figure a replacement vehicle would be the easier resolution.

Keep us posted on what you do. Kizashi or not, you are family here.

Will do.

What started as simply a service/maintenance journal morphed into family; I love you guys.
