Well, it happened. The transmission finally gave out on me. The fam and I are up here in Arnold, CA and only reverse appears to be working. Very difficult to shift up from 2nd gear last night.

I am looking for recommendations on whether to have a shop repair the transmission or to have a dealer replace it with a re-built.

Option 1: Transmission Shop - repair
I contacted a shop down in Modesto by the name of A&G transmission, recommended by the local mechanic. They sound like great guys are want to repair the transmission. Ball parking their average cost around $3600-$3800 with worst case of $4200. They said they would match the warranty on the rebuilt provided from the dealer for 3 years 36,000 miles.

Option 2: Honda Dealer - repair
I contacted both Lodi and Stockton Honda Dealership service departments and looks like the cost is about $5000 to replace with a rebuilt tranny with a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty.

The transmission shop believes strongly that when they are done with the tranny it will be much stronger than the rebuilt from Honda and will last longer.

What are your thoughts? Repair through tranny shop or replace at the dealer?

I don't know about you guys but a broken transmission cable and a broken transmission behave *completely* differently. I would have thought you would have been able to know the difference.
