Default How Much Average For A New/Used Working Transmission

I want to know the average price its gonna cost me to get a working transmission as long as its good I'd rather get a slightly used one for my budget purposes(how much did u pay for your transmission?) I have an 06 automatic 5 speed any suggestions? Can it be swapped for a CVT? or is that just 07 & up thankx for the advice.

If I remember correctly, putting a cvt in a 04-06 is not cost effective at all, maybe not even possible. You'd definitely be better off with a traditional tranny.

That's right insert "supersmile"

To the OP. UsedTranny cost will differ pending on local availability as well as mileage.
One thing to remember that you are getting a 90 day warranty on powertrain from junkyards. I'm assuming you are getting the banging shifts from 1st to second 2 to third sometimes. If that's the case get yourself new solenoids/valvebody. A new 5AT transmission from Nissan is 2400.

A CVT swap is something you don't want to go into.
1. New ECM
2. New TCM
3. New Gauge cluster
4. New harness
That's just to start things off.

Might as well throw in a 6 Speed...you can run that off your ECM as its been done here before.

Rebuilt tranny with warranty should run you anywhere from $1,500-1900, if not a bit more. It depends on the mileage, etc.

I really like the 6 speed idea I just dont know what I'm getting into...what else do I need besides tranny? Just the clutch pedal & shifter? How much for the extra not counting tranny
