Me? I'd drive it until it left me stranded. Officially, there's no telling. But, if I had to guess, it would have gone another 40k or 50k.

Yah, I heard of horror stories with the honda v6 + old transmissions. Apparently there are some stories about the current 9spd ZF9 tranny as well, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
TBH, I do already feel that it's not as smooth as the audi's. Damn luxury vehicles got me spoiled and I hate it.
Look at it like this. There's luxury vehicles that make you feel (well, I don't know about feelings) something, and take a lot of money to do it. Then there are vehicles that take a lot less money so that you have more money for the luxuries in life. Like hookers, liquor and blackjack.
We waited until a couple years after the Caravan major refresh to see if Chrysler finally got the transmission right. Nothing that I remember popped up so we bought one. We never had a driveline issue, is was a very reliable van but we had the key sticking issue. That and multiple rear tire flats. 3 of them I tracked to an idiot with a roofing company 2 streets over. You'd think he would smarten up after paying us nearly $500 for tires 3 years running.

Oh yeah. I always forget. Since (fo' real), I've never used, chiba, hiba, schmiba, or any of the 'ibas. Not saying I won't (before I'm dead). Just that I haven't, don't know how / where I even could.
