244-horsepower 3.0L V6 6-speed manual FWD

10000 mi   Random difficulty in selecting 3rd gear. In later visit, a shop employee said all Honda 6-speed transmissions do this, including his own. Problem is reported on Honda forums. 
22000   All Honda 6-speed manual transmissions had problem shifting into 3rd, from introduction (2002?). Various fixes attempted, none worked. Feb 2009 TSB issued, required that dealer observe problem. Replaced entire synchronizer assembly for 3rd gear. 
37000   Transmission's third-gear synchros replaced, per TSB. 
64000   At high rpm, clutch pressure drops. No leaks. Only happens at high rpm. Dealership could not diagnose problem. Could NOT guarantee a clutch replacement would stop symptoms. Dealership said it is "okay" and to drive car as is. 
91000 US $500 I was having intermittent problems with clutch engagement point (sometimes would engage low, other times high in pedal track). No visible leak from either master or slave cylinders, but went ahead and replaced both. 
6000 US $35 Replaced factory transmission fluid with GM Friction Modified Synchromesh fluid, per numerous web postings to improve stiff and notchy manual shifter
