I'm talking about Arcam.I did reject mine. After months of fighting. They did not wake up and rejected my claims as „the car is fine, tested by a couple of ‚independent’ drivers ” albeit it grinded on the test drives all the time. Basically i got official info from the guy in charge of our country’s honda warranty that its not a sports car and aggressive driving is unfortunately not an option with this „road vehicle”. When i asked why the gears are locking up and grinding on a halt when not given enough time to settle they officially told me that „this is a sports gearbox”... waste of time for this monty python ********.
I did not want any more contact with this rubbish car company so I’ve decided to settle with the dealer who bought this POS back from me (they did not want any problems).

Not quite there yet, I would prefer a proper fix for the issue and if a gearbox strip and repair is the way to go I want a UK dealer preferable in the North who has experience of repairing these to the correct standard.I'm talking about Arcam.
I have a Dec 2018 (Nov 2018 build) with 1k miles on the clock and I reported the 2nd gear crunch to the dealer within the first day, they had the car in and I got the usual "we could not replicate the issue". When cold all is OK, but when the transmission warms up 50% of the time it will crunch either on the up or down shift.
I have noted that a few owners have changed the gearbox oil out and they now find the shifts smoother, I may well try this but my gut feeling is either syncrohub/mesh issue and/or hydraulics not releasing the clutch plate fast enough. Once moving it should not be necessary to depress the clutch to the floor and even when this is done there is no guarantee that the 2nd gear crunch will not happen.
TBH, this is spoiling my enjoyment of the Type R, it is my daily driver and it will see a lot of track use this year so at least I have it on record with the dealer in case the gearbox lets go, but I am amazed this issue is even there in the first place
I would reject. I had a problem with the box and they replaced it. The new gearbox faulted again after only 800 miles , in the end they gave me another car but by that point I had lost the love.
I wouldn’t wish the rejection process on my worst enemy.
Not necessarily but it stands you in good stead for the rejection process but make it clear they will get only one shot.I was understanding that when you reject, you had to give them just one chance to fix the fault.
