Pros and cons of what? Sounds like you need some trans diagnosis. Best to have a reputable shop look it over for you instead of guessing. Based on that you said you had vibrations, I am willing to bet that the transmission mount or motor mounts have broken or failed causing your banging and hard shifting. If it is the Torque convertor that is worn, other parts in the transmission are worn as well. Most if not all shops will rebuild the transmission as they won't warranty it with replacing one part. You can also try a trans fluid change first, as that is much cheaper and might help your shifting. But there is no guarantee that will help. I'd have the mounts looked at first, then the fluid change, then a rebuild last.

I have replaced my torque convertor 3 times. I am a letter carrier but the first time it went out was at 42,000 miles. Someone at honda told me the older models dont go out like mine because mine is newer. It is a 2013. I was also told they put those on for better fuel economy snd they could be disconected and i shoukdnt have any more problems. I have read several complaints today from over 7 years ago so apparently they go out with older models. Don't think i will buy another one.

To the person directly above - if your constantly have a problem like this I suspect you may have transmission cooling problems from slow, stop and go driving. Maybe you need to have a fan assisted transmission cooler installed.
