2001 Transmissions Have Ruined Honda

2001 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I received this car willed from my great-uncle and have treated it well for 6.5 years. I've been diligent in regular maintenance. Then, out of the veritable blue, my transmission suffered a catastrophic failure en route to work two days ago. The auto tranny would not engage into gear and the engine would simply tach up with no acceleration when I hit the gas. I called Honda USA to get them to extend a goodwill repair to me, but they are refusing. I'm looking at a $2000 repair for a manufacturing defect...and Honda's not willing to admit the mistake or provide the customer support to alleviate the cost to me. 2001 transmissions across every model have been notorious for this sudden failure.
Suggested Improvements
Make a reliable transmission and provide adequate customer support to those suffering with a defective vehicle.
