1992-1995 Honda Civic Transmission Problems

You can experience your first problems starting from 120,000 miles. The most common are:

  • Transmission failure (130,000 miles);
  • Loose shifter (150,000 miles).

In general, cars of this generation already have significant mileage, so you should not expect their transmission to be reliable. Although, at their time, these were extremely durable cars.
