Recent transmission "service" prior to my purchase (34,000 miles) a few months ago. Carfax was clear. The car was a one owner lease. I have only owned it a few months, but I totally love the car and knew of the transmission weakness that seems inherent with the newer models. The warranty expires next year or 50,000 miles and I understand the transmission warranty extends beyond that. I have only changed the oil, filter and haven't had any problems. I hope Acura Engineers are working overtime to resolve the transmission issue. I love the Type S and the performance is awesome. My only issue might be better brakes. I have a black model with black leather interior and love the marble look on the console. I had a new Acura Legend as a company car in the past and drove the bosses NSX a few times. Both of those models were great. I bought this as a used personal vehicle my last car was a Pontiac Bonneville which was a really great car. If Acura redesigns their transmissions I will stay a customer as I love this car. As it is now I am afraid to go on a long trip!
Great Car...Engineers need to work overtime and redesign the transmission!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
