I went to my dealer to inform of an issue i have with getting into 3rd gear in particular and the other gears in general. They took the car for Two test drives and gave it some grease and charged me $90.09
No difference! I then found this fourm and got info that it is a known TSB or technical service bulliten for this issue. I called another dealer with my new education and i am now receiving a new clutch and the complete repair for the 3rd gear problem all on Honda canada's dime. I have honda plus warranty otherwise i'd be out of luck on the clutch as i have over 60K on it.
Anyway, the second dealer is way smarter, this job is worth thousands.
knowledge is power.

i would just check your local dealership. if they refuse to do it no questions asked, regardless of your warranty status, inform them of their future loss of business from you & your friends/family and leave. the 3rd gear issue is a big mess-up on honda's behalf, and the way i look at it, every si owner should be entitled to a FREE fix. you were sold a mechanically unsound car!
