2006 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 29000 miles
My car is a 2.2 i-CTDi diesel model with 6 speed manual transmission. It drives beautifully and both engine and transmission work smoothly.
There is an intermittent problem (for the last 20,000 miles) with the transmission jumping out of first gear, which occurs infrequently. It tends to happen when traveling slowly for a distance in first gear, for example in a traffic queue. It also happens on the overrun, when decelerating in first gear.
Although I know the circumstances under which the problem occurs, both the local Honda dealer and I have been unable to make the car jump out of gear.
The engine mounts have been inspected and the gear linkage has been adjusted; however, this has not resolved the problem.
I am concerned that the problem will get worse in the future resulting in an expensive transmission repair.
have the same problem?
