We bought our 03 Hybrid Civic new; we currently have put 105,XXX miles on it. The transmission "judder" started at 22,XXX miles, had that trans replaced (w/a rebuilt one) at 25,XXX miles, then that was replaced at 35,XXX (w/a new one) & received a extended warranty for 75,XXX miles for that one. Now we have just got the car back with a remanufactured Trans at 105,XXX miles. We are not able to get any help from American Honda The current "Case Carrier" is a snide, rude, arrogant. The dealer is going to do his best to help. If anyone has a similar story or good contacts to help please let us know, to ALL who read Honda "reputation for reliability" is GONE!!
Gas mileage, that's it!
Transmissions that last at least as long as you are making the payments. Even a average person should expect to have transmission problems once in awhile (every 100,000 mile or so) but not every 20-30,000 thousand!!!
