2002 Acura TL 3.2 from North America
My transmission was fine until I reached 98k miles when it slipped and would not go into gear after 3 hours of trying. Acura towed my car and replaced the transmission for free, and even through a return line in the transmissions cooler are for free. I have never had problems with my TL except for the transmission, but I honestly think that if you drive the car like an adult, you'll be fine without worrying too much. After all, the transmissions at the junkyard are getting cheaper and cheaper with age if you have to pay for them yourself. Put some Cheveron/Shell 93 octane and Valvoline 5w/20 oil in the car on a regular basis, and you'll be fine after your factory recall on the transmission's coolant area is taken care of.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Glad you like the car, but have you read any comments on this site about the transmission recalls, 2nd gear slippage and factory defects? You say the car needs to be driven like an adult and it won't cause any problems? Comments like these are just plain wrong. I implor you to do more research.
