Wow, I guess you drive a lot! 168k in 4 years.
To be honest, to have a good independent put in a trans from HEC (one of Honda's reman places) would probably be around $3800 or so. The new trans would have at least a 50k mile warranty. (something you can't get from a Honda dealer)
Then if you do buy a set of HFP struts with springs for ~$600 plus about 3 hours of shop labor to put it in, you probably would still not be able to replace the car for that price.
Don't forget if you still owe money on the car, trading it, you lose that and you'll only get half of what its really worth. Selling it with a blown trans....well, you sure won't get what it's really worth. Figure take off what it would cost to replace it.
