  • 1,000 miles


I have a Honda Civic si 2012, 6 gears manual transmission, I was at a stop sign when I started moving forward, shifted to first gear fine then second gear, but when I tried shifting to third gear it lock me out from shifting into it and my friend and I started to smell burn clutch I tried to shift back to second gear and it wouldn't let me. I had to pull over until the vehicle let me shift into first gear. This type of incidents keep on happening so I called Honda customer service for them to fix it and I also gave them the NHTSA campaign number: 12V256000, Honda said they couldn't find a recall for my vehicle and I need to take it up with my local dealership. Now my vehicle has 29,000 and it does not move due to the power train just does not engage. Can I get help so I may drive my vehicle please help I am just getting harass by Honda. I do not have a phone can I be contacted by email.
