2000 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 87000 miles
Honda dealership provided quote of $3,500 to replace transmission. This is based on two codes they retrieved upon inspection: P1739 - 3rd gear pressure switch failure and P0780 - problems with shift control system. I contacted a transmission repair shop in the area for a ballpark figure over the phone and they indicated it would be approx $1,600 but could be more if there is damage to the outside casing. Are the codes indicative of transmission failure and the need for a replacement? Any idea why the significant price variance between the two. Is there any benefit to having Honda do the work rather than a transmission repair company (they both offer 12 mos / 12,000 mile warranties).
have the same problem?
