For the most part yes, I however, have never seen a remanufactured manual transmission from either company I have worked for (Honda and Nissan/Infiniti)nsane said:Most Engines and Transmissions that are used for warranty work are remanufactured...Just with new parts, so its Like-new?

What is wrong with Honda quality? Nothing...dgs said:I purposely slam the shifter into third gear very hard now because I'm so sick of thinking it's in gear letting out the clutch and hearing a grinding noise followed by the gear popping out. Makes me look like an idiot and it's flat out dangerous as well. I know the synchros are going to die on this car way premature. I don't know what the heck is wrong with this car, I should not be having transmission problems with less than 5,000 miles on the odometer. I brought it to my Honda dealer once to have them fix it and they said they found nothing wrong with it. Well, I'll make sure the next time I take it in the transmission is shot to hell so they'll replace it. As hard as I'm slamming it into third every day now that shouldn't take long.
What's up with Honda quality/relability. Guy at work has a damn Kia with 60,000 miles and never a problem with this 5-speed transmission and my Honda that cost twice as much as his base model Kia is giving me problems with 3,000 miles on it? Something ain't right about that. Obviously this is a problem because I've already seen several posts about this issue. Honda better recall this **** and make it right by their customers.
So, people on here can't drive? This also has happened to other Honda's as well. Just because YOU don't have the problem doesn't mean it doesn't exist.shingles said:I will put money on the fact that some of the so called 3rd gear issue is infact driver related, and not a car related issue.
My engine was in fact rebuilt under warranty. They contemplated putting in a new engine but decided that rebuilding was the way to go. After all that was done my engine seems to run so much stronger. They did a nice job.twistedframe said:It is true that most dealerships steer away from rebuilding transmissions as well as engines. It ends up costing the dealer and/or manufacture more money to pay a tech to tear something down and rebuild it than just replace it. I have been in dealerships for over 5 years and not once have I seen an engine or transmission rebuilt under warranty.
WRONG, what is wrong with this statement? Everything, mainly brainwash.shingles said:What is wrong with Honda quality? Nothing...
FAIL! :thumb:shingles said:What is wrong with Honda quality? Nothing...
No 3rd gear problems here...
And let's think about this, do you think the average Kia is going to be driven the same way as the average Si? I will put money on the fact that some of the so called 3rd gear issue is infact driver related, and not a car related issue.
my aunt bought a brand new 2001 Jetta.... it had all sorts of problems...KingMarineM16a4 said:No one likes problems unless you are just looking to fix something and no one is looking to fix something on a BRAND new car.
Still supports my statement. Honda along with almost EVERY car manufacture is starting to be concerned with quantity over quality, unfortunently.nayilsi said:my aunt bought a brand new 2001 Jetta.... it had all sorts of problems...
spring shot up through the drivers seats... and much much more... she had to go to the VW dealership numerous times.
