Re: Does TSX have transmission problems like Accord and TL?
Every car suffers from failures. Some are design flaw, others are driver neglect/error. In the case of the TSX auto it is nothing like that of the Odyssey/MDX/Accord/TL/CL transmissions. They are very reliable.
Have some failed? Yes, of course. Some manuals failed as well. Nothing is perfect. For the most part with good maintainance they should last with no issues. My father has an 05 Auto with 110k. I think the dealer changed the fluid 2x.. I then got my hands on a case of the new DW-1 fluid and did the 3x3 change. When removing the magnetic drain plug there was MINIMAL flakes on the plug.
Any other car I have owned always had more. These trannies seem to be built very well. When purchasing ask for service records, look at the fluid yourself and see what condition it's in.
