car   Transmission Gear Slipping problem 1
Failure Date: 10/30/2008

I have a 2005 Honda Civic hybrid. It usually seems to happen at 40 mph and above. The transmission slips (like when you're coming out of the tolls). I had the burnish procedure done last in the fall/winter of last year. Within the last month, the transmission has slipped a better part of 10 times. I took it to the dealership to get it under warranty. They said they can not duplicate the incident. Just this past weekend, between 40 and 60 mph, it slipped 3 times in a row. The next day, at about 68 mph, the rpms stayed at 3000. It's normally around 25-2600 rpm. Again, the mechanic could not duplicate the problem. They told me if I bring the car back again, I will be charged $87 per hour, even though it is under warranty. The transmission slippage has been occurring about 3-5 times a week. Never when I am at the Honda dealer. They told me they can only do something if they can see what is happening and told me to bring it back when it is happening consistently.
