*looks on carsurvey.org*

wow



I always knew Honda didn't make the best automatic transmissions (not the smoothest, not the most long-lasting), but the amount of owners who have had trannies go out... wow

I know someone who has one and he'* had to have the tranny serviced twice now but I think it had to do with some kind of recall.

Decent cars, definitely not worth there price tags though. Lets face it, Transmission cannot handle the overpowered engine. They all want to call GM V6 powerplants underpowered but at least everything is well balanced. Trans can easily handle the power outputs.
