Default 2000 honda accord trans question?

I own a 2000 accord (auto) 6cyl. Anyways the car runs beautiful no leaks no problems well one.

The transmission is "hard shifting". Basically shifting late from 20-40mph sometimes 60. (If I ease off the gas it shifts fine but sometimes will be late.

Well I went to my 3 year mechanic and told him this his response. Honda built the filter inside the transmission so I would have to change the entire transmission. You can drive the car forever you said all Hondas have this hard shift problem at some point

Long story short he offered me $1500 to change the tranny when I want to. I asked can I put some type of stop slip lube or Change the fluid inside the tranny. He stated that would either fix the problem or destroy the tranny completely.

Right now the car is fine still driving smooth.

Let me know your thoughts and what I should do. Righ now I have $500 saved up for this

I also asked my other friends who said to keep driving it and save up for a new car. I want to change the tranny but then I want to trade the car in next year to finance. Car fax states car is worth 4k.

Currently at 178k miles

I called a honda dealer stated its value is 2800

dude, look..usually here on houston is around $1200 for a transmission $1500 its like 200 more. but if you trust him cool. i had an issue with i was thinking tranny but it was not the tranny. it was just shifting and pulling. i did some research and i don't know why but da po; filter from the motor i dont know what happen and it was making that hard shifting. also i got a bad distributed and shifting was not right. wrong time. also just a freaking sensor made shifting hard. so my opinion don't fix it if is not broke. you'll feel the tranny if is bad. I dont think is bad might be spark, a little glitch keep on driving it until you hear something bad. It ain't worth it just throwing 1500 and don't even know what is wrong with it. There are some tricky meechanics... at the end i got a rear shield oil issue, got it fixed and change out the fluid. so fat i been driving it for about 4-5 months. HONDA ACCORD LX 1999 Vtec ..

Changing the fluid wont destroy ur tranny its supposed to be changed, most trans filters r in the trannys. U just drop the transmisson pan and it's right there.

the filter is in a different location. he probably does not wan to take the time time to look? his laziness is about to cost you a grand. find a different shop. the filter is cheap. have it changed immediately. iot takes about 3 seconds for a slipping clutch pack to fry. baby the car to the nearest oil change or tranny shop. you should be good yet. drive safe.
