    2016 6MT 104,000 miles. Became stubborn to engage first and reverse a while ago. Lately, it has been making a whirring propeller- like sound. Shop says I need a new tranny but it’s back- ordered. At least my used car warranty is covering it. Bummed because some nice days are coming and I could be waiting weeks.

    Early cars have had many trans failures…make sure you get a VERSION 5 replacement…yes, there are now 5 versions to help solve the problem

     

    Lots of information on mnet on this

    Flyin Miata has a NC tranny conversion kit, too. Nearly a plug and play.

    I only know that I’m getting a new tranny cause I’m told “they don’t make parts for the early versions”.

    Not sure which version I end up with. Since they aren’t readily available, I may not have a choice of versions. Any new tranny, I would assume would be the latest version.

    Hey Mike!

    I have a V3 that grinds from time to time in 3rd.  Has 48k miles on it.  And it will be available hopefully within the next month as I’m upgrading to a V4 with low miles.

     

    Lmk if you are interested.

    Many thanks Lance, but I’m getting a brand new transmission under warranty. I just have to wait a bit.

    Supply chain issues may be affecting shipments, but they tell me there are none in North America.

    Maybe you could offer it to the Miata Club as a backup.

    I have a new V5 ND2  transmission that I bought from Flis Performance.

    They build Global MX-5 cars which are now using SADEV transmission.  They should have some in stock from time to time.

    There is a perceivable difference in shifting smoothness compared to V4 that came originally with my ND.

    I’ve been driving with a new tranny for months now, should have updated. It feels just like my original tranny, but works. I should note that I have an MT 2016 Club which were the models most inclined to fail.

    Glad to hear you have a new transmission replaced under warranty.

    My plan is to upgrade my old V4 transmission that is sitting in my garage.  Shipping it to EMCO or Walter Motorsports  for upgraded gears will be a hoot.
