I had the same 3rd gear problem with my 2006 RSX Type S as you and your son had. It's really a simple fix. My mechanic who has lots of Honda experience (but does not work at a Honda or Acura dealer, but an independent shop) simply replaced the transmission oil with an upgraded version. Problem solved. In fact, it was immediately apparent how smooth it shifted through all the gears.Report it
