There are several years of very poor Acura transmissions around 2003.
Catastrosphic failures of the transmissions.
My 2003 was bought new, babied, garaged, and had an impeccable maintenance record.
All maintenance done by dealer.
Transmission died at 118,000.
Repair cost was 75% of actual value of car so was not worth repairing.
Needless to say, Lexus will be my new car company.
