I own a 2009 Honda Civic coupe…right under 69,000 miles. I have been planning to sell/trade this car for a Subaru, so I guess I’m wondering what my best options are given the following:
I am not a car person but this is what has been explained as the problem - Valve body is bleeding off pressure at the engagement. It’s an internal transmission leak.
What the mechanic said:
Because it’s an internal leak the transmission needs to be taken apart to repair then be put back together.
So at this point I’m just wondering if I should:
- pay the $3000 and get new parts for the transmission/3 year warranty and then sell it
- pay $2500 for a simple repair of the leak w/ rebuild and then sell it
- buy/find a used transmission and have that installed for probably around $1500 - $1800
- or, just take it in as is and see what I can get for it?
Thank you for your help!
