You can go ahead with dealer but it will cost you about $6500. I took mine to AAMCO and paid $2700. It's been 50,000 mile already with the rebuilt tranny and honestly I'm nervous because I had the dealer replace my tranny at 50,000 miles when it started slipping. Then at 110,000 miles it messed up again. Called corporate and try to get it replaced or get help for the cost but nada. They said my mileage was too high and out of warranty even if the tranny is a POS. AAMCO found water in my tranny due to the kit Honda put in to help cool down the fluid so that was replaced also along with my front motor mount. They showed me my tranny while they were rebuilding it also. I am now at 152,000 miles and still running good. hopefully it stays like that. Drain and fill genuine Honda fluid every 15-20,000 mile. Why? Because itís a pretty small transmission that only takes 3 quarts of fluid compared to Toyotas that holds up to 7 quarts so our tranny fluid puts in alot of work. Remember, itís just drain and fill no filter so don't let the shop screw you $120. Buy your fluid from the dealer (it take exactly 3 quarts) and drain and fill yourself.
