Default honda trans recall wtf??

FOR US HONDA V6 GUYS!...im not sure if you heard but honda has a recall for the 5 speed auto trans,same trans as in our vue..but they dont list it.
they list all the honda vechilles with our trans just not us?WTF?
so cause we bought from gm are we screwed?
do some research and tell me what you guys think?
its something to do with lines in the tranny not lubricating the gears properly and the worst case scenario is the trans actaully locking up
some one needs to find to get int touch with gm and find out what the deal is
supposedly they can change the tubes through the side cover,and for the hondas if they see signs of overheating from lack of lubrication they will replace the trans,otherwise they just install the updated "tubes"

No worries. According to the NHTSA database, this recall was announced by Honda back in April of 2004. If it included the specific version of the transmission that's in our Vues, Saturn would have already let us know -- and if repairs were necessary and not announced, someone would have already reported the issue on here. Neither is the case, so like I said... no worries.

The Honda Transmissions for 6 cylinders (Accord, Acura MDX etc.) that were recalled were the 1998-2002 (read below). The problem was premature failure due to not enough trans oil hitting 2nd gear. They solved it by retrofitting with an oil jet to shoot more lube to 2nd gear. All 2004 Honda Transmissions would have been retrofitted at the factory. If you have problems it may be something else. I have 82K on my 2004 Vue and no issues (knock on wood). So it has been taken care of.

From Wikipedia:
Despite the Accord's reputation for stellar reliability, the V6 models were plagued by transmission failures and were even included in class action law suits against the company (4 cylinder models were also affected, but not to the same extent). This caused the Honda Corporation to extend the warranties for the 1998 through 2002 models to seven years or 100,000 miles (160,000 km). Yet no formal recall occurred. In Canada, recall letters were sent out to owners who fell within a certain VIN range, this warranty was later re-extended for some owners to 7 years 11 months in length.

See Honda Press release if you want to read it. I also have a link to the parts if you're a car buff and what an oil jet is.

Here's the press release from Honda:

June 30, 2004


American Honda Expands Voluntary Transmission Recall to Certain Honda and Acura Automobiles

TORRANCE, Calif., June 29, 2004 -- American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today announced that it will expand its existing voluntary recall of light truck models for a potential transmission defect to include certain Honda and Acura passenger cars. The voluntary action involves approximately 499,000 Honda and Acura passenger vehicles with V6 engines and 5-speed automatic transmissions. Affected models include certain 2003 and early 2004 model Accord V6 sedans and coupes, 2000-2003 and early 2004 Acura TL sedans, and 2001-2003 Acura CL coupes.

The company has found only one confirmed instance of a transmission failure related to this defect in its passenger cars, with no accidents or injuries. We are acting out of an abundance of caution to ensure that this doesn't become an issue for our customers, said Tom Elliott, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

The situation is created by insufficient lubrication of the transmission's secondary shaft second gear that can occur under certain driving conditions. Prolonged operation under these conditions can lead to heat build-up and under certain circumstances may eventually result in chipped or broken gear teeth or breakage of the gear. In the event of a chipped or broken tooth, the owner will likely experience abnormal noise from the transmission and seek repairs. In rare instances, this condition may lead to gear breakage and possible locking of the vehicles transmission, creating a potential safety hazard.

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted via mail and will be asked to take their vehicle to an authorized Honda or Acura dealer to be repaired free of charge. Customer mailings will begin in late July. In most cases, the repair involves a simple gear inspection, which is accomplished without removing or disassembling the transmission, and a modification to increase the flow of transmission fluid to the affected gear. If there is any indication of damage to the gear, the dealer will replace the complete transmission assembly. Customers concerned about the condition of their vehicle may visit Hondas Ownerlink website. Customers may also contact their local Honda or Acura dealer, or call Honda customer service or Acura customer service.
