Okay, I'm having transmission problems and it's pissing me off. I own a 1997 Honda Civic, with 64,000 miles on it (very low for a car thats almost ten years old). Basically, everytime it shifts through a gear (automatic transmission), the car jerks. My dad's been a mechanic and is working on the problem, but I'm unsatisfied with what's going on. Honda has a repair for it, titled Harsh shift complaints on a/t Civics and CR-VS, which involved a 114 dollar solenoid, but it didn't help at all. So basically, he is going to do a flush and more solenoid work, but if that doesn't work, it's a 1500 dollar repair job (i'm poor too, work part time only, and i'm still paying this thing off so dumping it is no option). Does anyone else have any ideas about what could cause it? If you have knowledge on Civic a/t from 1996-2000, you would be helpful. Also, does anyone know of a design flaw in those said model years? My dad was calling around to dealers and found out that in 2000+ model years with basically identical transmissions, they are covering for this problem up to 100,000 miles. This is just really annoying. This car has needed zero work up until now, and i've owned it for a year, and the previous owner had no problems (and barely drove it). Carfax only came up with a minor crash (airbags didn't deploy).
