Another transmission problem, this time a seeping transmission seal identifed during oil change. Part not in stock so had to return a week later to have it installed - took 2.5 hours and would have cost $250 without extended warranty. Wear of rubber "boots" on trasnmission seals. Normally would have cost about $250-$300 to repair, but $800 extended warranty orginally purchased covered it. Total repairs under extended warranty add up to $1200, which makes it worth it for this car.
Transmission failure right after taking used car delivery at First Texas Honda in Austin Texas. Apparent that prev single owner traded car for new Accord when the transmission began to fail. Did not notice it until after I drove it off the lot.
Automatic transmission began shifting erratically. Took car to dealer for diagnosis. Dealer checked line pressures and computer codes, and recommended transmission replacement!
Transmission would only operate in one 'gear'
PCM throwing error
This was the third transmission put in vehicle. First was replaced at 60,000. Second replaced at 165,000.
