Honda paid for my repair under their extended warranty. Did you have the Service Dept check your vin to see if your Honda was one on the extended warranty list?
#46 of 49 over 100k warranty

My 2001 GX was at 107k when the work was done. I paid $500 to have a rebuilt installed instead of around $3000. In this kind of case, I think that Honda supplies the parts for free and the $500 goes to the dealer for labor.
I was upset because I had been having problems for 30,000 miles and had been to several Honda dealers who advised me to just keep changing the fluid and hoping for the best. Honda sat on the extended warranty mailing until after I passed 100k. So, I was irritated that I had to pay $500 to replace a poorly designed transmission for exactly the same component, but I guess it's a lot better than paying $3000.
I'm also pretty upset that a major component like a transmission from a company like Honda can't be repaired.

Thanks for the reply. Was it difficult to get Honda to do this? Did you arrange it thru a dealer or directly with Honda? Thanks, Paul

You have to go through a dealer service department. Honda's help line is only useful if you're having problems with a dealer doing what they say or should do. Be prepared to leave your car with them for a while -- diagnosis, negotiating with Honda, getting the transmission and putting it in can take weeks.

I have a 2005 and it began to shutter around 60K. I had changed the CVT fluid at 30K as required. I then changed it after the shutter at 60K. It started the shutter again at 70K, changed fluid yesterday and it seems to be working OK for now. I believe my book said change due every 30K. You gotta be sure that whoever changed it used the CORRECT fluid, I had it done each time at Honda dealer, but as for being sure, I am not. Yesterdays change should be correct fluid as I spoke with the old time Honda mechanic about it.
