they shouldnt charge for a service history. but the only way to really know if its fixed or if its present is to just drive the car. Some people get away without getting anything from the tranny but joy. others.....get 3 trannies that grind like a 86 beater. just hondas 6MT grind.Guys... I just bought an 07 si. TA5. Stumbled upon this three and wondering if anyone knows if its cool to roll into a Honda dealership and ask if this has been fixed on my car??
They shouldn't charge me right?? Please please please pm me if anyone an help me out with this.
So American Honda said that they would not repair the 3rd gear problem under goodwill consideration due to the mileage (79,500) and the age of the car (2007). I contacted my local dealer and the service manager there sympathizes with me and is aware of the 3rd gear problem and agrees that it's Honda's fault. He's going to do what he can to try to get American Honda to cover it. We will see. Has anyone had any success getting Honda to cover it while out of warranty? If so, how did you do it? If not, and you paid to get it fixed, how much did you pay? Thanks.
I finally got my dealer to order 3rd gear parts for my 2006. I bought it about 4 weeks ago and it has 82,000 miles on it. This qualifies it as a lemon law candidate and will be fixed under the good will clause. I told them I would rather return the vehicle then inherit a problem if they didnt fix it. I drove with the shop forman today and he felt the clunky 3rd gear and the 2nd gear. You have to fight for it.I just bought an 07 Civic SI sedan with 79,000 miles and have the 3rd gear problem. When I attempt to shift into 3rd gear, with the clutch all the way down, the knob just won't move into position and i am forced to move back into neutral before depressing the clutch and then reengaging the clutch again before going into 3rd gear. It's after hours now, so I have sent a tweet to Honda Customer SVC (American Honda's Twitter account) and am waiting for a reply hopefully tomorrow. I was just at the local Honda dealership a few days ago and was having the Sun visor replaced since it split and broke, and I mentioned the 3rd gear problem to the service advisor. He said that he has a 2006 Civic Si and that he is aware of the problem and that he has had his synchros replaced under the TSB. He recommended that I contact American Honda to see if they would consider me for a goodwill repair. Hopefully they do, because it's Honda's fault that they chose to use faulty parts.
Did you buy your car from a Honda dealership? I bought mine from a private seller.I finally got my dealer to order 3rd gear parts for my 2006.
