    Re: 2001-2005 CVT transmission Warranty Extension for Slip/Judder

    Thanks for the info regarding the 15 yrs and 150K.. I'll take the car to the dealer and see if they will give me some new coilpacks. I'm hoping that will cure my 'juddering'- like symptoms.

        They quoted me $1600 to fix the tranny. And an unrelated $1300 to replace the head gasket. Turns out the coilpacks werent the cause of the error codes. It was the head gasket.

          Thanks for update. A head gasket at 125K miles seems a bit early for a Honda. Did you authorize the fix?

            No, at this point $3k was a little more than I wanted to invest into the vehicle.

              I see, so the car is dry-docked for now I guess.

                Ebay has replacement used transmissions for sale for a bargain $390 shipped (keyword "SLYA"), business address I believe, residential is $150 more.

                  Head gasket replacement should not cost $1300. I wouldn't hesitate to find an independent shop to do head gasket for 1/2 of that. Used tranny would be the way to go if that's the case. My '05 GX showed missed fires in all 4 cyl. and random for a short moment when the weather was really cold and it ran like it starved on fuel. When the weather warmed up....it appears to be okay now.

                    I'm shopping around for a GX.

                    Help me understand:

                    Those built from '01 to '05 have dubious cvt transmissions, that were subject to recall?

                    And that recall is expired?

                    How does one know that a particular car has been serviced in the recall?

                      Lessor of 7 yrs or 100k miles from original date of delivery. So the party is over. Any dealer service adviser can check warranty history of a specific vehicle, just get the vin #

                        I am second owner of an '01 with 200K and '04 with 325K miles - neither has "judder" problems. These models have only 4 seat belts and the owners manual says no roof racks, trailer towing, or snow chains should be used - the CVT is not intended to be over loaded beyond carrying 4 passengers. Tips from the internet say the CVT will hold up fine with reasonable acceleration - and I stick to the recommended 40K mile interval for transmission fluid changes done by my Honda dealer so I know the correct fluid is being used. Test drive cars with CVT's to determine if something shakes when vehicle initially begins to move after being stopped. If this feels acceptable, there's no reason the transmission won't perform fine for ordinary driving. When reaccelerating after traffic slows on a freeway, I allow the cruise control to accelerate back to speed since it is programmed for what is best for the CVT. The 2006 and newer GX's have 5 speed electronically shifted transmissions which, in my experience, increase normal driving range from 220 miles to over 300 miles. I always "borrow" a 2008 when making trips like the I-40 southwest run I did in August which has several runs longer than 275 miles.

                          I had a 2002 GX with original CVT, dull driving experience but it ran okay up to 99K miles when traded. That 2002 GX got consistently 10% better fuel economy than current 2010 GX, but I'm not surprised since the 2010 has more horsepower and is about 300 pounds heavier, not to mention the 5 speed auto tranny..

                            The cvt by nature is more efficient in city driving. No torque converter losses, almost no moving parts when stopped in traffic, constant power curve during acceleration. My 01 got better mileage than my 08 , mostly city driving.

                              Yes CVT efficiency is highest, although the 300 pounds less curb weight and the 13 less horsepower also contributes some to the mileage difference.

                              The 2010 (vs 2002) driving experience is much better in terms of comfort, NVH, handling, and safety too. Not to mention a better tranny for the driver that actually likes to drive.

                                06 and later sure is a totally different driving experience. Punch it ,it downshifts and accelerates. punch it with a cvt and it sort of "Gathers speed" l.o.l.. The 5 speed auto is much more quiet on the freeway. With the CVT I didn't need a speedometer , 70 mph was 3100 rpm. With the automatic on the 08, it was something like 2000 rpm at the same speed. The negatives on the newer body style, with the larger , flatter windshield and rear glass, it turns the car into a great solar hotbox parked in the summer.
