I finally got to test drive an FA5 today. Everything was great until I shifted into third and of course, I immediately noticed the common problem. Other than that the car was amazing. I am also looking at an 07 Impreza 2.5i because I am a Subaru driver now and I love them, but gas prices have got me looking at the civic. It is such a tough debate! Also in the picture, is a 2005 civic si. Is the tranny problem really enough to worry about to put the FA5 out of the list or not? What do you guys think? Will Honda deal with this? I need some help cause I can't sleep at night lol.
