Transmission Overhaul Needed at 78k
By kmn on
2003 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
I haven't had any problems with this car until last month. The automatic transmission started slipping from 3rd to 4th gear and needs a complete overhaul. My car only has 78k miles on it. There is no way it should need a new transmission. The estimate I got from the dealership was around $3000. Stay away from the 2003 Civic! From what I've read, this isn't an isolated incident.
