It cost me another 100 bucks. They flushed the system and replaced the standard clutch fluid with a "special" fluid that costs $40 dollars. It works great now. I asked how replacing clutch fluid could fix a cluth going to the floor problm. No real answer. I asked where the missing clutch fluid had gone. Again, they don't know... Now I'll wait and see what happens. If there is a fourth time, the car is being sold

Fluid cannot fix the problem. It can get you down the road a little bit, but the root is the plastic OEM CSC. If you're planning to sell the car if it happens again, go ahead and sell it now. The CSC will fail unless you put in an aftermarket metal one.

The dealer is wasting your time and money. It will fail eventually. Probably sooner rather than later.

I hate to sell it but I know you are right. I am looking at a Dodge Challenger. What a shame they did this. I've had that car there 3 times and they have it a week each time and it costs me money. I wanted to tell them they've had it so long, they should make the payments

Depending on the trade in value, it may still be a better option to save up and replace the CSC rather than trade in the car. I'm sure you could get it swapped out with a new clutch and flywheel for $1500-2000. If you're going to get raped on trade it may be a better idea to just fix the car you have.

Did you contact consumer affairs? the CSC has failed you 3x, why are you not bringing this to the next level and have them fixed for good!

Why are you not calling up consumer affairs? You asked for advice and this is what many people on the forum asked you to do,they even posted the number and what exactly to tell consumer affairs and even who to talk to.
If you still can't call them up good luck, a Dodge Challenger might be better for you.

I don't think the CSC has actually failed completely 3x. I think the dealer has just made him bring the car in 3x for the same failing CSC. Regardless, he needs to contact NNA.

I am. I took down the information and will do so. I work full time, my wife works swing shift, so I have the kids at home to help with homework, cooking, you name it. I am teaching a course I have never taught before so am scrambling to keep my head above water. I average 4 to 5 hours of sleep, and, you get the point. Busy beyond normal. This week, things calm down, kind of, and I should be able to contact them. Don't take this wrong, I appreciate all that you have said, sometimes life gets to be a bit much and I'm in over my head.

The car had Nissan GT-R R35 fluid (DOT 4) put in. It works fine...for now but, as some of you noted, sooner or later.... I'll keep everyone posted.

You also need to go to a different dealership. The oil is only a Band-Aid and it will fail! The repair should only take two days, three tops if they don't have the CSC in stock(week at a time is absurd). Don't sell your car due to a bad experience at the dealership. Mine took two and a half days and they didn't have the CSC in stock.

I was going to do that when mine failed, but it's hard to pass up free parts/labor even if it's an inferior part. If things hadn't gone my way with customer affairs I was going to take to straight to the shop down the street to have an aftermarket CSC put in and do a clutch/flywheel while I had it all apart.
