2014 Nissan Pathfinder CVT Transmission issues Sign In

Hi,



I need some advice here.



I bought a 4WD 3.5L Pathfinder (155, 000 miles) with some noise when accelerating -paid $7200 . I thought it was a wheel issue and it could be a relatively cheap repair.



Well, I now know the noise is a transmission/transfer case issue (common issue with the Nissan CVTs).



I have spent about $2000 to replace the transfer case but the noise is still there.



Considering the cost of cars nowadays, is it worth putting in another $3000 to change the transmission?



I understand the $3000 cost to replace transmission might go up, but I am thinking that putting a new transmission is like giving new life to the car.



My reasoning might be flawed (reason why I am hear for experienced advice), should I put in more money or cut my lose.



I was at the dealership yesterday and they said it seems better to buy a new car (at least $30,000) than keep spending on the Pathfinder.



Thanks

Of course they did. They want to sell cars. I expect they won't give you much for your car either.

We have a trans expert here (gsferarro). Wait for him to chime in. He may have some helpful advice on the issue.

That car is worth $9-10K with the trans fixed. They can take it to the auction and sell it as is for over $7K if the noise is not real noticeable without driving it.

This deal is definitely not in your favor.
