On affected vehicles, the CVT (continuously variable transmission) drive belt may slip during acceleration. To increase customer confidence, American Honda is extending the warranty for this potential problem to 7 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. This extended warranty covers only CVT drive belt slippage and CVT start clutch judder below 15 mph (see Service Bulletin 07-049, Warranty Extension: CVT Start Clutch Judder). Any other customer complaints with the CVT are covered by the normal 3-year, 36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty. Do the diagnosis in this service bulletin. Then, only if needed, install a CVT lower valve body kit and update the ECM (Civic Hybrid), or replace the CVT (Civic GX, Civic HX, and Insight).
