problem #3

Nov 282016

Fit LX 1.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 94,093 miles


Started with a feeling of having "posi traction" or having the front hubs engaged on a 4 wd. This was intermittent after having the transmission serviced 2000 miles prior. Eventually all lights came on while driving.and car went into limp mode. Retrieved code ( intermediate shaft sensor 0 voltage ). Cleared code , car drove fine only with grinding under hard acceleration. Car returned to dealer, they kept trying to re create error code. I told them i was more concerned with grinding noise since error had not returned. After a 50 + mile drive, I watched a service person doing hard acceleration starts and stops in their back lot untill the car completely stopped. Their quote was "we know whats wrong now" 4958.00 later and a factory remanufactured transmission later the car runs again. i have had the tranny serviced every 22 k and oil changed at the minder light interval when indicated ( appx every 11 k ). This car is only driven on the highway. Definitely not pleased with new honda cvt's. Plus i had previously complained about slow engagement since 13 k miles, was told this was normal, new one is not slow to engage.

Fit LX 1.5L

  • 16,000 miles

I drive normal, and always take care of my cars, I am pissed that the transmission goes out on my car in only 16000 miles. wake up Honda if you lose your quality to save a couple bucks having them made in Mexico, then watch your stocks go down. I don't buy Hondas because they are awesome to look at or drive, I buy them because they are supposed to last and get great mileage. If this is how the new Hondas are going to be, then I will never buy another one.

Fit EX 1.5L I$

  • CVT transmission
  • 57,000 miles

My car started making a grinding noise when accelerating. I was concerned enough about it to take it to the dealer immediately. After a brief test drive with a technician, I left the car with them to check it out. They told me later in the day that the transmission was starting to go out and they would replace it under warranty. Later they told me that a technician was taking the car out for another test drive and the car died and had to be towed back to the dealership. They could not get the new transmission in five days, and then it took two more days to get it installed. I put a lot of miles on my car because I use it for work, but this is the only time I have had to replace a transmission before 150000 miles. I do not consider this to be Honda quality, and it makes me leery of buying another car with a CVT. Unfortunately, that is what Honda is putting in all their new cars.
