Default What should I do with my 2000 Honda Accord EX 4 cyl

Ok regrading my 2000 Honda Accord EX 4 cyl. My tranny is on its death bed (P0700) and (P740) after the check engine light came on. The car slips when it goes from gear to gear (I had 2 tranny shops tell me this and the dealer). I need an opinion from you guys. So Honda America told me that they would pay for a re-manufactured auto transmission and a torque converter clutch with a 3 year/36K mile warranty on the power train for $1650 after taxes. My friend says just trade in the car for a brand new Kia (Great warranty and prices) or a Mazda (Great prices). I bought the vehicle in 12/07 with around 47K miles for $8,800, the car now has 56K miles. I had to replace the ECU ($900) spring this year, the transmission fluid ($65 special) in late spring this year, I needed new tires ($280), new brakes and brake discs ($280). The timing belt was replaced (at least it says so on the car fax at 40K miles). It might need a tune up. I can get a brand new car for around $11-$18K + tax, my insurance would only go up from like $380 to $850 a period. Is there anything else that can go wrong with this car? Should I just trade it in or sell it and use the $1650 towards a new car? I really don't wanna spend $1650 and then a year down the road something not related to the powertrain goes bad? What are your thoughts?
