The recommended transmission fluid service is far too long. Depending on the type of driving you do, you may want a simple fluid change with every 2nd engine oil change. As for support from Honda, the dealer should make a pitch for you since they have serviced your van. However, there is no extended warranty for 2003 models so anything they offer will be from goodwill, not policy. The only advantage to the Honda repair is the 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. Otherwise, seek out a good transmission shop who is familiar with these transmissions. Also if you don't have an auxiliary cooler already, have them install one. Good luck!MR DANGLES said:***Snip*** my question is what are the recommended services on these yrs and do you think Honda America would be willing to help in this situation on a 7 yr old van with 77,xxx miles on it?
