    Damn, the CVT8 went out @ 169k miles? Unacceptable. I'm guessing u did all the fluid changes too?

    Journalistic question: Would you get in trouble with your editor if you pointed out the Outlander, having a Nissan powertrain, could potentially be a huge risk for consumers? Especially if they're expecting to get at least 200k miles out of their cars? Or could that be a libel issue that writers have to avoid?
    I don't have access to that info and I doubt either mfg would be willing to talk about it.

    The second question -- that's not something I can really speak to. You're asking me if I'd get in trouble for expressing an opinion that having a Nissan engine in a Mitsubishi is a huge risk. I mean, I guess if I really believed that I could put it in there, but it's likely the editor would ask me why I'd think that and they would, of course, have the final say on whether it gets cut or not. It wouldn't be a libel thing, but it'd probably not be good for me and my relationship with either company (and possibly the outlet I'm writing for).

    I bought it broken. It's not beat up but I'd be willing to bet the nasty ass fluid in it is original. It makes a loud whining sound and has low trans fluid pressure. My plan is to take it apart and try to get it back on the road.

    Here's a video about it, Dirk. Enjoy some good CVT angry noises!
