Beautiful car. Is it in the snap ring range?

Only a relatively small number of 1992s had snap ring issues. Acura of America verified that this car is not one of them. You can call them with the VIN. You don't actually need the trans number as the VIN automatically matches the trans number in the data bank. Only those owners whose VIN and Trans numbers were on the hit list were contacted by Acura.

From the FAQ....

Which Cars Are Affected?
The snap ring failure is limited to transmission numbers J4A4-1003542 through J4A4-1005978. These transmission numbers are limited to 1991 and 1992 model year vehicles. You cannot determine whether a car is in the range for possible failure by VIN number, you MUST check the TRANSMISSION NUMBER because the transmissions were not installed in sequential order by VIN number. See Locating Engine and Transmission Numbers for instructions on locating the transmission number.

It is important to note, however, that the problem does not exist on all transmissions in this range. The range simply identifies transmissions which may have the problem.

Interested in maintenance records, repair history and paint history. Have the "usual" issues (like window mechanism and speakers) been dealt with? Thanks.

It's real easy to find. Just open the engine compartment, stand on the driver's side, and look for a white label with bar code on the transmission.

For more specific directions... "put your nose right by the left rear corner of the air cleaner housing. Looking down and toward the center of the car (i.e. at approximately a 30 degree angle from horizontal), about one inch beyond a point directly below the fuel injection throttle body you should see a white bar-coded label. That's the transmission number label."

Maintenance records can be faxed to you. The paint is all original with not one scratch. The left/DL headlight cover had a few touch-up drops placed over stone chips (can provide Close-up photo). Bra was used so no other mark is on the car. The paint is flat out beautiful. The original/previous owner was even older than I am, so the speakers haven't been cranked.
Windows/speakers A+.
