Default Major Transmission Issue

I have a 2011 Suzuki Kizashi SLS AWD with about 103000 miles. Itís an automatic with a CVT.
The CVT is the JFO11E with is also in the Sentra, Outlander, Lancer, Compass, Caliber, etc.
I havenít really had any issues with this car so far and I absolutely love this car. Itís always had this sort of wavering of the rpms at constant speed. It would hover going up and down just a little bit which my partner always thought was odd. It was never an issue though and there was never any adverse effects. Never a check engine light or anything else.
About a month ago I was driving to work when the check engine light came on. I thought it was strange but no big deal, and planned to have it looked at by my partner when I got home.
I stopped at a light and as soon as I made the turn the wheels lost all power. The car starts and runs but will not engage in any gear. I press down the gas and itís revs but nothing happens. The transmission wonít engage.
I had it towed to my house and my partner ran his scan tool and the code comes up P0717 which is a bad speed sensor. The closest dealership is over an hour away and the car is out of warranty, just barely, so having it towed there didn't really seem practical. I found a local mechanic who had experience with CVTs and had it towed there where it has been for over a month. The input speed sensor was broken on the end that connect to the transmission assembly, the plastic was cracked but not the circuit board itself. Anyways the mechanic replaced the sensor, when the car was put in reverse it went momentarily before giving out again. My understanding is that now there is a code for the output sensor but when tested the sensor is working fine.
The mechanic doesn't really know what else it could be but does not think it is the transmission because it still went into gear momentarily and because of computer testing he has done.
I am at a loss as I cannot afford to just let the car go, replacing the transmission is a possibility, albeit a very expensive one but I don't want to take the rout if it isn't necessary.
I really appreciate any help or advice I can get.

Default same boat

So I've had this speed sensor go out twice on mine (60,000 miles btw..) The part number is 2614165KF1 and it takes about 6 weeks to come in. The sensor breaks in half in the transmission and fluid will flood it making the check engine light inconsistent.

Good luck, I'm buying two this time
