Does anyone know why the '02 Accords are exempt from the transmission recall? I kinda doubt that Honda fixed the problem... I see the techs at the dealership that I work at replace '02 trannies all the time, just like all the others... I can't get a clear answer from anyone at the dealership. OH - and just to clear things up, the reason that accord trannies fail is because the differential bearing is the wrong size. It gets ripped to sh*t over time, and the metal particles get tossed in the valve body and clutch pistons and everything else, causing the massive failures that we are so used to hearing about. So why did honda decide not to include the '02 Accords in the recall? BTW Dr. Evil might be coming sooner than I thought... I am leaking ATF from somewhere between the engine and the tranny... it's not the the axle seals... I've only got 35,000 miles... YAY!!
