1st you will need to contact Infiniti, so they can quote you the option which is $700.00 something dollars when i checked. Just because its equipped there are still things that need to be added in order to make it function. As per the mechanic. Rip off.

Just because the tranny fluid is full doesn't really mean that much. More importantly, what does it look and smell like? The recommended interval for trans service is 30,000 miles. It is important that this be done every time. The reason is that the tranny fluid pan has a filter inside. As the fluid loses its viscosity it loses its ability to lubricate. Once this begins to take place the heat and wear inside the transmission increase and can do so very quickly. If there is excessive wear then when you perform the service you will find metallic shavings in the bottom of the pan and in the fluid. If the fluid is not a brighter shade of red, or if it is more of a rust looking color then I would say have it serviced asap. If it smells burnt then that is another warning sign. But I would definitely have it serviced, not just draining and refilling the fluid. But filter, pan gasket and bolts as well. If the fluid looks good and doesn't smell burnt, then it could likely be a shift solenoid type issue. But you would have to have that diagnosed at a shop that has a Consult type computer to check for codes in the TCM.

Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.
Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.

Pull out the dipstick.
With the gearshift in Neutral or Park and the parking brake on, let your engine run. Be sure the engine is warm when you pull out the dipstick. (Don't turn off the engine.)
Check the fluid.
Dip the tip of your index finger into the fluid on the dipstick and rub the fluid between your finger and the tip of your thumb. The transmission fluid on the dipstick should be pinkish and almost clear. If it looks or smells burnt or has particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change the fluid.
Wipe the dipstick with a clean, lint-free rag; then reinsert it and pull it out again.
If the transmission fluid is clear but doesn't reach the "Full" line on the dipstick, use a funnel to pour just enough transmission fluid down the dipstick tube to reach the line. Don't overfill!
