I purchased a new Honda Civic in the summer of 2002. In April my transmission has broken and I had only 50, 000 miles on it. I contacted a Honda service center and they told me they can't help me because the car is not on the warranty any more.
When I bought this car I also bought an extended warranty that would cover repairs up to 60, 000 miles. I told about this to Honda but because I bought this warranty from a dealership and not from them they could not provide the coverage. At least this is what they told me. They advised me to locate my warranty company and do the repairs with them.
To my disappointment my "extended warranty" company just went bankrupt, and they can't provide any coverage for me either.
Now, Honda would not back up this warranty company and I have to pay for the transmission from my own pocket. Also, I thought Honda products are more reliable...
