I am a Salesperson putting on 36,000 highway miles per year. My first Transmission self destructed at 28,700 miles. It was covered under warranty. The garage installed a "SERTA" Transmission (factory rebuilt) with a 3 year 50,000 mile warranty. At 87,500 miles that tansmission also "smoked", (out of warranty) I found out that there is an inherent problem with these transmissions.

The first transmission went out with a Bang! The second time it started to slip a little bit between second and third, leading to total failure a short time later.
