Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son's 2003 RSX's engine blew; he had a new one put in by mechanic and
then transmission blew with 48 hrs.  Should mechanic have seen that coming
or is there no way to predict?

No way to know that was going to happen, sounds like it's getting rode hard. First the engine then the tranny UGGH.

To have that happen, it appears the car was not taken care of properly. This just doesn't happen with Hondas.
