Yeah....I'm sure that's "grounded to the ground" alright....

Moving this whole CL post here so its not lost when the ad goes down




:| I'm honestly shocked that the glass transmission's managed to pull around the dead weight that the dually tires must add. Hell, it barely manages to pull around a bone stock 4 banger w/out gradually grenading.*

*I'm not bitter...i swear...honest.... :lol:

I thought the 4cyl tranny was alright. Its the V6 auto that has the transmission made out of kleenex.

The 4 cylinder's lower power/torque output merely delays the inevitable.

There's plenty of cases on DriveAccord and other forums of 4 banger owners suffering from the same issues, only way down the road compared to V6 owners.

Of course, I too thought it was only a V6 thing when I looked at the car, and never bothered to research more, because 4 banger. Of course I find out otherwise after I buy the damn thing and it starts shitting the bed.

Reading up on it..It's just a crappy design period. If I had the stick model I'd fix up the little shit and run this thing into the ground as its great otherwise but instead I'm looking at using whatever tax refund I get toward dumping it for something else because it isn't worth fixing the other shit only for the crap, symptom showing, $2k+ tranny to blow.*

*if my tax refund turns out to be close to the cost of a trans replacement....I may do it...dunno yet I doubt it.
