So I'm just looking for a sanity check ...
I was told today that my 2010 Honda Fit's transmission needs to be replaced at a cost of $4,400. At this point it's making a whoosh-whoosh noise that cycles higher relative to speed. The dealer says they don't know what the problem is, and they can't since it's a sealed unit. All they can do is replace.
- Is this transmission serviceable, by anyone? Or is it just the dealer that will only replace?
- If I just continue to drive without replacement, how can I expect it to fail eventually? Up in flames or slow and predictable?
- Is it reasonable to have the transmission replaced by a second party?
