Honda Accord Transmission Problems Recall!

This is a copy of a post from a local site I am on. The poster works for honda and copied this from the Honda network. He claims there is known 3 rd gear problems with 7th and 8th gen Accords. You be the judge. I know my 3rd gear acts funny sometimes but it is a very intermitant problem.

right from hondas IN network-

Transmission Grinds When Shifting Into 3rd Gear, Pops Out of 3rd Gear, or
Is Hard to Shift Into 3rd Gear
SYMPTOM
The 6-speed manual transmission grinds when shifting
into 3rd gear, pops out of 3rd gear, or is hard to shift
into 3rd gear.
NOTE: These symptoms can be intermittent and
sometimes more noticeable in colder climates.
PROBABLE CAUSE
The transmission has a faulty 3rd gear synchronizer or
3-4 shift sleeve.
CORRECTIVE ACTION
Replace the 3rd gear set.
VEHICLES AFFECTED
2003–07 Accord V6 with M/T: ALL
2008 Accord V6 with M/T 2-Door:

From VIN 2HGFA555.8H700001
thru 2HGFA555.8H702465
DIAGNOSIS
Drive a known-good vehicle under the same conditions
as the customer’s complaint, and compare the shift
quality. If the customer’s vehicle has noticeable shift
quality problems, replace the 3rd gear set.

resistance or notchiness when shifting into third gear.

not only are there three threads about it...... it's also NOT a recall. it's simply a TSB telling dealers what to do IF someone complains about this condition.

'08 RDX tech.

'06 accord V6 6 MT nav sedan... gone.

'06 TSX 6MT.

I read on another forum that it is a 3rd gear recall for 7th and 8th gen accords and civics. I have also read on multiple forums about people having this same issues on 6 speed manual trannies in Accords, Civics, and S2000's.

I have had minor issues with my 6 Speed. It is hard to get into 3rd sometimes (rarely) before the car warms up. It doesnt happen all the time but it is annoying when it happens, caught my attention when I read about this. My brakes also just recently started with the loud whine at low speeds (4000 miles on the car bought it 11/07). I have read the brake noise is a common problem also. My dealer says they havent heard of the issue and that the rotors are probably glazed over, Im not sure if I believe them, based on numerous similar reports on different forums.
