1998 Honda Accord LX 4dr auto 4 cyl, 47,000 miles
This vehicle is recently making noise from the engine compartment area,
sounds like the transmission is starting to fail. Inspection from Honda
dealer, technician indicates transmission needs replaced, would not offer
further symptomatic interpretation. Vehicle has all scheduled service
records and oil changes from dealership. Vehicle is not driven much as
evident by mileage and years old.
Have contacted Honda America and did receive case number. Internet is full
of transmission problems with same model and subsequent year transmission
problems. Has anyone experienced similar problems and able to get
resolution through either Honda or legal or otherwise? I am really not
interested in a transmission replacement bill of $4000 - $4500 to replace
the transmission, less interested in the purchase of a new vehicle as an
option to repair the transmission.
Advice and recommendations are requested.
