Anything related to the Kizashi can go here, but please look at the other headings first. Your topic may fit better under something else.

11/25/2020 at 146,756 miles, had four used 215/55 R17 WS80 Blizzaks mounted -- the two I'd saved side-swapped and remounted on the rear, and a lightly-used Craigslist pair I serendipitously found for $80!
Car rides nice.


But the tranny acted weird on the hot test-ride home............. :shock:

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. Shut it off. Hmmm. Did it again to confirm; no weird noises, and it moved.
But.....


So I started Kizashi-ing December 23, 2010. Since then I've accumulated 378,874 miles in those 3,629 days. (So) Many of those miles have been driven with 'reckless abandon'. This is the first stoppage.

NO regrets; I think 2 out of three ain't bad...........




Pretty sure there'll be more to my story.........

I cannot complain; no vehicle should get the abuse I display.

Nope; car is sitting in our dooryard. I'll try backing it into the garage today; we'll see.....

Can still drive the wife's CRV (but NO smoking); friend said he'd lend me his unused older CRV; another friend (he of 4.2L twin-turbo Caddy) alluded to possible $$$$ help.
And that's just so far.......

State of flux.
