Have a 2000 Ody with 136K miles. Check Engine light produces code P0740 according to Honda Dealer says tranny issue $5000 for new transmission. I haven't noticed any slipping, etc. It's 3 years and 27K out of warranty. (7 year/109K).
I have all service done, including frequent transmission fluid changes. BUT, maintenance hasn't been done at a Honda Dealer. Is it still possible to get Honda to cover the cost of transmission if I pay labor? I was told "no way" due to 3 years and 27K miles out of warranty. ANYONE ELSE WITH EXPERIENCE???
HOW LONG COULD THE TRANSMISSION LAST considering it seems to drive fine right now. ?
I'm considering getting a reconditioned trans for half the price, considering I can buy 2 of them if needed over time for the same price as a new one, in hopes the 1st one lasts. Any thoughts???
