2004 Civic transmission slipping
At about 30,000 miles I noticed my transmission slipping a bit. I know that there was a group of Civics that were recalled becaused of a bad belt in the transmission. Mine does not fit into that group since my Civic has a gear transmission, no belts. Honda said that the 30 K maintenance transmission fluid change would fix it. And it did for about 5 K miles. Then it started again. Honda recomended flushing the transmission a few times, which I did. When it started up again in a week I took it to Honda. They could not get it to repeat my problem, therefore no fix. Since then I have not had a repeat performance. My worry is that it will start up again and, since my warrenty is up, I will get stuck with replacing a 2-3 year old transmission! Is there anyone out there that is having the same issue?? I would sure like to know what your experience has been.
I have a 2004 Honda Civic
I have a 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid with a CVT Transmission. I've expierienced problems with sliippage. shuddering, and now a whinning. They supposidly extended the transmission warranty to 100,000 miles. This car has been serviced religiously and I have the backup paper work. At 77,774 miles the transmission is shot and Honda says it will cost me $6400.00 to replace it. Honda and I, are now at war. I have retained a Lawyer and I'll let you know how it turns out. I've been a motor head since I was a kid and I allways purchase the factory maintenance manual when I purchased a new car. They did not test or follow factory prcedures when they analized the transmission. It was never documented on my reciepts so I am holding them responsible for their inadequcies. They could have fixed the transmission if they had a competent mechanic work on the vehicle. Their inadequecies have cotributed to the failure, now its on them.
I have a 2003 honda civic
I have a 2003 honda civic hybrid. Under warranty I had the transmission replaced about 4 months ago. Car is working fine. Brought car in today for oil change, etc. Dealer is advising that I change the transmission fluid now as it is dirty. I thought you only change the fluid every 30,000 miles under normal circumstances. Does it make sense that on a new transmission you need to change it earlier??
Please give me your opinion. I'm also going to check my manual to see if it was advised after I bought the car new in 2002.

That means my Civic hybrid will start slipping next year!
