My suv's tranny has failed. is it worth replacing the transmission in my 2002 acura mdx with 205,000 miles?

Asked by Jan 25, 2015 at 11:18 PM about the 2002 Acura MDX AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My suv has been very well maintained overall throughout my eight year ownership.  This
suv was part of an Acura recall regarding the transmission before my ownership.  This
vehicle has traveled 205,000 miles to date.

Nope, in my opinion it's not worth fixing. After 8 years of ownership you've got your money's worth out of it. Time to trade it in on something newer. Use the money for a down payment rather than put it into a 13 year old vehicle with high mileage. You'll be much better off in the long run. HTH. -Jim

it could be if you like the car and the motor is good think about 300 to 700 for a tranny or a another car payment
