same hir man..im out of warranty...got a 101,000 miles..haha.same problem with the 3rd gear popping out...well hope american honda comp. will do something about it..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.
