long story [rant] Took the wife's car into the tranny shop about 2 and a half weeks go and got it back today. Starts off great the shop gives us our recite (1900 dollars later) and it has their little 12 month 12,000 mile warranty and tells us we need to drive it about 50 miles to get the computer programmed to our driving style. Soo we're taking it on a little stroll down the highway and sure as **** about 25 miles into it the tranny starts doin the same damn thing, which is slipping and running like SHIAT. Now i will explain what kinda tranny/transaxle thing the honda has. It's a 99 civic hx. It's got a CVT transaxle thingy, which i saw it tore apart and it has a steel belt that goes around 2 pully's which expand and contract to give you the "shifting." Well anyways this GREAT design makes it so not very many tranny shops will even work on them and the honda dealership will just get you a new one for the outstanding price of 5495 plus taxes!!! Anyway back on track the check engine light came on (p1890 a/t concerns) and on the dash where the PRND21 is the D keeps blinking even if it's in park it keeps blinking. Normally it's suppose to just stay highlighted not blink. Anyways turning off the car and waiting a few minutes will get rid of the slipping and the blinking of the D but the check engine light stays on. I think it's about time to just junk it, we already put damn near $2000 into a $5000 car! [rant/] short story Tranny/transaxle in a 99 civic HX is the most retarded idea in a car. Do not even consider getting one unless you want to waste money at a tranny shop!!!
