Default Accord V6 has a new tran. How long will it last?

I just bought a 98 accord coupe v6. The new tran is a reman and has 6700 miles on it. How long will it last and how can I make it last? My last car was a Mazda Millenia and that tran went out shortly after I got it.

it should last nearly the life of the car, unless it is abuse.

To maintain it, there is not much you have to do other then changing out the transmission fluid at scheduled time.

your car manual will have the interval for transmission fluid change.

Is this an automatic, those transmission had a TSB on them from Honda. Hopefully the person who rebuilt it knows that and didn't just rebuild it to original specs. Honda actually redesigned it so the current replacements are darn near bulletproof. If this was a manual, you have nothing to worry about. It should last forever. This is nothing compared to the Millenia. '90's Mazdas are known for automatic tranny issues. At least Honda improved theirs when they noticed an issue. Mazda just swapped out the crappy old one for a crappy new one.
