I got to 138kmi and am waiting for a new motor & accumulator from Burkhart now as I'm dead in the water. A close friend with an '04 has just over 170kmi on his here on South Fla!

Changed mine as preventative at 112k. On 100 plus degree days I was starting to have issues of gears not wanting to engage/jumping out of gear. Went the route mentioned above changing both motor and accumulator from Burkhart. Absolutely flawless for 1500 miles now and no more issues.

I'm at 210K with the original pump (04 MY). People rush to change this out prematurely. It gets too much bad press when people pop up in forums complaining. Just drive it!

183k miles on mine. Just changed out the slave cylinder the other day because it was acting a little tired after a few runs at the drag strip.
