    Sidebar- he bought that CTS, I'll post picks when he gets wheels on it (18" deepdish bitches)

    anyways

    the 00 Accord's auto tranny started slipping so he takes it to the dealership to have it looked at. Kinda sucked cause it was only at 116,000 miles but it had no warranty so that's the way the cookie crumbles right?

    WRONG

    Honda of America: The transmissions in our vehicles do not break down at 116,000 miles

    Result: New tranny installed within the week, parts and labor free, guaranteed for ownserhip of the vehicle...

    let's see Ford do that...

    The Japs can't build an automatic for their lives. They can, however, make owning a Honda the best thing ever.

    they probably checked their log books, and realize that every honda auto v6 tranny is a piece of shit.

    Beats Toyota's answer to the 7MGE head gasket problem....

    "there is no problem with the head gaskets."
    "They burst every 12,000 miles"
    "Nuh uh"
    "Uh, yeah they do.. Everyone. There are tons of petitions out there about it"
    "lalalalalalalala"
