Solid car with significant shortcomings

ReviewI have purchased this car a certified used car from a dealership in Brooklyn, NY with 27k miles on it. Overall it is a very good car with excellent driving characteristics. Handling and power are great. Interior ergonomics and style is very simple and elegant. Almost Teutonic, perfect for my taste. Fit and finish is also among the positive features.The dealership concealed the fact that the torque converter was previously replaced under recall, it seems it wasn't installed properly and is the main cause behind mediocre mileage (15 mpg city). The car's transmission is also of inferior quality, it hesitates and jerks when engaging 2nd and 3rd gear. Quality of shifting decreases with temperature
Best FeaturesHandling, interior design, V6 power.
Worst FeaturesThe transmissions were always Honda's Achilles heel. I find it surprising that after that many years on the market they still insist on their own transmission design that results in inferior shift quality, jerks and slippage.
