    :wtf: :rant: Was driving today and every time I tried to accelerate I would watch the RPM's go up but my speed would stay the same - like I was drifting or something :confused: Then when I tried to reverse, I got nothing.

    The fucking car was taking a coffee break or something because it took two tries just to back up - and I only have 25,000 miles on it! :wtf:

    Same tranny as Fazle's TL and my Accord V6. Combined, this is the 5th tranny on OT dead.

    ...and I thought thaT the tranny problems only happened to those morons who use the trip-tonic thing without knowing how to use it.

    I take good care of my ride, this pisses me off.

    Honda and Acura V6s are well known for eating automatics. I know they extended the warranty for the transmissions on the 6th gen V6 Accords and both of my customers with CLs have had at least one transmission replaced under warranty.

    I hope they've fixed all of their transmission problems with the '05 TL's. We're about to go in and pick one up today.
