It feels smooth for the most part, but knotchy here and there. It's only with the first 3 gears. No problems whatsoever with the higher gears. My Acura had the same problem with 1st and 3rd gear.hmm no it's pretty smooth for a Honda
nothing like my Audi but pretty acceptable for a Honda
Definitely don't put it into first until completely stopped. I guess I'll have service take a look at it, because I most certainly don't agree with the C&D review. Appreciate your input.Two things:
First: here's what Car & Driver just said about their long term 6MT Sport:
"It is among the best manual transmissions extant, with short throws, direct paths between the gears, and a fluidity to the shifts that not only makes us happy each and every time we have reason to exercise the clutch, but also reveals the secret genius of the Accord."
Second: what's wrong with first gear? You certainly can't be putting it back in there before you're stopped, can you?
I'm guessing you need to take it in for service or reexamine your technique.
PS I miss Dirk Kuyt.
What's wrong with putting it into first before you've stopped? If I'm rolling slowly (too slow to start in second), it's easier to get the car moving by shifting to first, rev matching, and accelerating. It shifts into first smoothly while rolling.Definitely don't put it into first until completely stopped. I guess I'll have service take a look at it, because I most certainly don't agree with the C&D review. Appreciate your input.
P.S. - Kuyt plays for the enemy, so I'm not a fan
