You know, I'm not sure about transmissions . . but in the past I bought and had engines installed from Japanese engine exchange . . and they came out of cars with reasonably low miles . . never had a problem. Supposedly these were Japanese Honda engines. In japan you are not allowed to keep an engine in a car for high miles due to emissions . . or so the story goes . . but it was always an affordable option to an engine rebuild. Now with your car . . it is front wheel drive and the engine sits on top of the trans . . so in essence . . you are having the engine and tranny pulled. But I'd imagine dumping a tranny from the yard out of another Honda would be cheaper than having it rebuilt.

You would be around 1500-2500 depending on miles of trans. Those are failure prone transmissions. You may want to price a reman unit from Honda. They are redesigned to not fail again. They have a 3yr/36,000 mile warranty as well. When I do them it's not much more over a used unit. You be like 3000 for the new unit from Honda. All these prices are ballpark, you'll need to have a local shop check it out and give you a price with their labor.

Regardless of what you get, use only Honda ATF. Regular dexron III will kill these cars.

You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here -
