Well, I posted a question earlier, and we took our Odyssey to the dealer. Well, they did the recall fix, but apparently that wasn't the problem.
So they are saying we need a new transmission.
So. Is a new transmission better (worth paying more for) than a rebuilt transmission? We were quoted $3100 which I believe included labor (we're not sure if it's a new or rebuilt, but my husband said the words "new transmission."
In a way we feel more comfortable going with the dealer since we don't know any mechanics around here. And if a new one will last longer than the rebuilt one, I might prefer that.I don't know.
Anyway, my other question is - if they're going in there to take out the transmission, should we go ahead and get the timing belt replaced at the same time? Are they located in the same general vicinity? Or will we still be paying a ton for labor?
Anyway, any advice and information you have would be greatly appreciated!
