That is what the sinka jayraptor wants. This is only the beginning (he hopes by praising the Forte here and there will get him a free upgrade
). He bought his EX with the 4AT. But now there is the 6AT for Forte. It's the same case with his previous Sentra which was without ABS. When he found most cars have ABS, he began to whack Nissan because Nissan didn't entertain his request.
Miki Mao seems to like Forte forum already.
Well, the Forte's 4AT won't cause disaster unlike N16 [Sentara 1.6SG no ABS]. Besides, the 4AT gearbox in Forte is proven reliable and durable gearbox that was used in Sonata NF and few MMC models that would last more than 10 years without problem.
Since this thread is about upgrade plan for Forte, the best is to buy the 6-speed new gearbox that would last 300,000km maintenance free. I could get acceleration 0-100km/h in 11.5s without having to tune up the engine and use more fuel. 11.5s for stock no assist C-segment 1.6L is very good that is as fast as some 1.8L cars.
Price of single conventional gearbox would be high if only me alone go to order 1. If several Forte 4AT owners could regroup and order in bulk, the price could be easily brought down to just few thousands with trade in gearbox.
I started to whack the N16 because of dumb local marketing staffs like you opted to drop the ABS rather than airbag in the Sentra 1.6SG. Strong brake grip in N16 without ABS would easily end up in wheel lock. Why didn't you remove the ABS in Sylphy, then you will feel the scare. There are several N16 owners that sent their rides to N brand SC, they crashed because of no ABS happened within permitted safety speed limit including at 60km/h.
