Smile Better to look for manual trans?

What is the reliability of manual trans?
People talk about the reliability of Auto trans.
For ours (Honda's), people say it is virtually undestructable. Well, maybe or maybe not...

But many people know and also I assume even our Acura (Honda) auto trans will eventually break down someday. Then, does it mean that it is better to consider Manual trans when someone is looking for reliable car? What is the life of manual trans? Is Honda manual trans bullet proof? or Is any manufacturer's manual trans reliable too?

Youve got a lot of questions. The honda tranny will last a while(200-300k), but the rear tranny mount will go bad, replace it soon and your tranny will last longer. The awesome thing about legends is that you can get a 6speed. That is the best way to go(ive never driven one, but everyone on this forum dreams of a type II six speed coupe. Just lettin you know, thats what a lot of us want, it makes the legend a high way beast, topin out at 155, 160-165 maybe with a chip. Now thats bad ass.
Both will last forever, dont have any idea about bulletproof, what you live in the hood or somthin? good luck
peace

Talking there is no bulletproof tranny..

Haha I didn't say it is bulletproof, I do NOT completely believe even if somebody said so....But I do believe that our Acura/Honda Auto tranny is way better than others....

I am currently looking for a Acura/Honda vehicle with manual tranny as a back-up car for my 94 L sedan auto (160000miles). Well, rescently my 94L Sedan auto tranny seems a little acting funny. To let my 94 L rest a bit, I am looking for a descent commuter, then, I ran into a problem such as, either buying "High miledge less older Honda with manual tranny" or "Less miledge older Honda with Auto tranny"..... hahahahaha...... I will probably go with manual tranny because it is fun!!!!... Any thought?

Well, if you're getting any used honda (w/ MT), I would get a major tune up (belts, water pump, oil, trans oil, ect.), but also replace the clutch and throw out bearing and have the flywheel resurfaces (or at least sanded down to take all the glaze n crap off).
