Default How easily do automatic trannys break?

2008 Honda Accord LX-P 5AT tranny.

If i speed up quickly (not floor it, but if i'm at a stop light, i would speed up significantly faster than other cars) all the time, will the tranny break? The tranny jerks from time to time when it down shifting and sometimes doesn't seem to know if it should be in 3rd or 4th gear, and sometimes if it should be in 4th or 5th gear which causes the RPMs to be at 3k-4k. Should i trade in my 08 Accord 5AT for a Nissan Sentra CVT or a Nissan Sentra 6sp or will i be able to use my Accord w/o tranny issues until 200k-250k miles? (the car currently has 100k miles)

Do your transmission maintenance. Have you ever serviced the transmission? If not, that coupled with hard service, and it could fail.

There is very little chance it will make it to 200 k or 250k... I would say you get between 150,000 to 175,000 out of the tranny, depending on how hard you push it, and how bad it is now... Check the transmission fluid level also

Of the 30 cars i've owned half have been automatic. I that time i've had to have 3 gearboxes re-built, all of which have been manual.
