It's always a tough decision when it comes to transmissions...I've owned many cars in my life and automatic transmissions have always been a crap shoot in my opinion...I had a 1989 Chevy Camaro that went 342,000 miles on the original engine and transmission...(and chevys dont usually go near that)...in contrast, I read on this forum all the time and people talk about their transmissions going out at 150,000 or less...AMAZING?
