woops, the dealer actually quoted 4,900 with warranty... YEP, bye bye pilot.2004 EX-L with 202,500 and still purrs like she did on day 1 (july 2004). We've kept up on all the manufacturers suggested maintenance and with timing belt recently done, we just got our first check engine light. Dealer told us it is for the Transmission (P0740-torque converter control system failure). No symptoms, but light on means no resale value. $2,500 estimate to replace with warranty sounds fair, but after $1,500 for timing belt last month that puts us at $4,000 this year in maintenance. KBB values the car right around that!
Is it time to walk away?
Is the next $2,000 repair just around the corner?
