Asked by Aug 05, 2015 at 06:06 PM about the 2005 Acura MDX AWD Touring w/ Navigation

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car transmission failed with only 102,000 miles on it. Dealer is asking for $6000 to
replace transmission. This is the second time I have had transmission problem. I first
time was not total failure but transmission had to be flushed as fluid leaked into
transmission. Is it even worth repairing when total value of car is around $7000 for a fair
condition?

Try an independent shop for a price, 6 Grand seems a little steep

I would think it should be in the 3-4K range.
