I feel the transmission should have been recalled. The manufacturer is more than aware that the transmission in this car was poorly made, and I am quite upset that I am having to replace it. I have always driven a Honda or Acura and this is the first time I've had major problems. I am told that the issue has been resolved mechanically, but that does little to help my out of pocket fee.
I agree. I just purchase mine, which was a one-owner and taken very good care of. It was 104k miles when I got it, and it is now about 110k miles - and it is now having transmission issues.
Since the transmission was not recalled, I will have to pay $3500 - half the entire car value - out of my own pocket to replace the transmission.
