My 2017 pilot would lunge / judder with RPM needle wiggling while at constant speed usually around 40 mph. I never got any dashboard indicator lights. I took it to Honda Service. They plugged in the transmission and it was giving them all sorts of error codes so they told me the transmission needs to be replaced. They can't tell me what is wrong with the transmission, just that it's bad. Only 39,000 miles but since the drive train warranty expired a year ago they submitted to Honda and they said I only have to pay $1,500 and they will replace the transmission with a rebuilt one (with 3 year warranty). He said it would normally be a $7,200 job. But it's still $1,500 for low mileage! I've seen the technical service bulletins posted on this site about the judder and torque converter problems. The service person said it wasn't related to my transmission problem ... but also said they had to order 3 transmissions form Honda this week. So doesn't it seem like Honda has a problem and this could be a Lemon law type thing? Should I try to call Honda Corp and see if they will cover this in full? This is my 3rd Honda, but it might be my last (I also still have warped brake rotors that started at low miles and 3 years old ... another defect that Honda would not cover).
Anyone experiencing this, any advice?
