Oh yah, they're transmissions suck for anything beyond the Inline 4...I had a 03 Acura TL...transmission blew from the rigerious 30minute journey between my home and office.
Mine was an electrical issue, not just the unit. The radio worked but the lights went out (so you couldn't actually see anything) as did the HVAC control unit (not just the lights). I had to get a new unit and there were some control parts back there that, apparently, had moisture issues. AKA: improper seals.

I know a little bit about cars. This was the car I had before the Honda, she was anything but stock, except for the Transmission and I never had a problem:
"Corvette, om nom nom." My main issue was that my car was impeccably maintained and had ridiculously low mileage. I anticipated the transmission problem after the jet kit install so I did transmission fluid changes every year and installed a B&M transmission cooler. If they stood by the car, they could have really impressed me. Despite the problems I probably would have bought an '08 Accord had they shown me something. In this market, you'd think they'd want to retain customers, not piss them off and force them to run though hoops. Way to go Honda! I can not recommend buying a Honda, nor will I, for the rest of my days. Insult to injury: the heat doesn't work now!!! I fucking hate this car with a burning passion!
