I have an 08 versa sl with a cvt trans. The trans is bad and wanted to know if you can swap it out for a 4 spd auto? Trying hard not to scrap/part the car out and cant afford a new trans from nissan. Any advise would be helpful. Thanks.

The lower end versa (i believe the s) had an option for auto, cvt, or manual trans. You could find a auto and swap the cvt, but for that I would recommend buying a rebuilt auto trans. I would speak with a Nissan dealers parts department or the technicians in order to verify.

The PCM would at the very least need different software, the two trans use nothing common in operating instructions. There may be other CVT specific things there too.

With a car that old surely you have a rebuilder CVT available somewhere.
