Hey Scotty the transmission on my V6 98 Honda Accord is starting to fail at 145K miles. Repairing the transmission will be pricey so i'm thinking of buying another car. I do a lot of highway driving to and from school. I was thinking about getting a newer model Accord like 03-05 with the same V6 engine because my 98 has been very reliable until now but i'm not sure. What other automatic transmission cars under $3K should i go with? Or should i go with a manual transmission car? If so, what type of manual transmission car should i go with? Thank You!
