2004 Honda Civic Hybrid Question: Transmission Replacement Cost

 

Question

Visitor, Tulsa, OK, October 17, 2010, 15:18

I've been told the transmission needs to be replaced on my 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid. It has 124,000 miles on it. Is it worth replacing as more things may go wrong with it? Maintenance has been done EVERY time on schedule.

    Yes and no. The car is a good car, but you are getting up in age and mileage for the IMA battery as well.

    HOWEVER...do see your Honda dealer and request some manufacturer assistance. They have been known to help out customers even with the age and mileage, especially for Hybrids. Besides that, there are known issues for the CVT's in these cars for start clutch shuddering on take off, and they have bulletins for this repair. Not sure what specifically your issues are.

    Dave,
    Honda put a bandaid on my transmission at 85,000 miles. They "burnished" the clutches in the transmission. After it passed 100,000 they adamantly refused to do anything, even though there was a previous recall to put the bandaid on. I'm taking it to the dealer tonight to have new "star" clutches put in, at a cost of approx. $1300. I have 171,000 on it, but it still runs like a top, and I've had few other issues (I changed the front brake pads at 150,000 miles, even though they still had more than 50% on them, just angled wear, and still have the original back break shoes, as they are still good). I don't believe Honda will help out with the trans repair at all. I tried, and got nowhere.
