But honestly, it always give me the feeling that because of the (very) bad reliability of that era's auto transmission, it made Honda very slow on develop (or push out) new transmission for ALL Honda/Acura. Did they finally have a 6-sp (normal) auto for there V6 Honda/Acura in 2011?
For me, Honda is always famous for their 4 cylinder engine and manual transmission.

Throwing in the 5spd Allison 1000. They are getting the rep around here of welding the 3-4 clutch packs together because of the lack of oil.
The problem with the 46/47/48Rx's in the Chrysler trucks is the dam converter heating the oil up.
The 4L60/80 has no business being here. Pretty bad a 4l85E will out last an Allison.
I had an 07' Fusion. Around 100K kms, the tranny started shifting hard. I thought it was going to explode. I got the fluid changed and reset the code and it was okay for a while. Occasionally the wrench (transmission service) light would come on, and it would shift hard again until I reset the code with obd2 reader. I learned to leave the reader in the trunk and had to pull it out at various times to reset it. It was the same code, solenoid something or other. Fluid went dark pretty quick after changes. Now I have an 04' Jeep Grand Cherokee, so far so good. The previous owner was religious with fluid changes and the colour was good when I test drove. As long you start off with overdrive off its fine, it doesn't like having o/d for driving around town obviously. But I wish when you start the vehicle it would be overdrive off
