Just wanted to let everyone know that I took my Accord 2.0T Touring to the dealership regarding my continuous rough shifting from 2-3 gear. They kept it from Friday until yesterday (Tuesday afternoon). Initially they tried the whole "it's performing as usual" at which point I physically went to the dealership and demanded the technician go for a ride with me. He said he knew what I was referring to but he didn't see anything on his tech line forum. I asked him if he had seen the OnePACK video about the RDX 10-Speed exhibiting the exact same problem and he didn't even know what OnePACK was. I pulled up the video and played it for him while we drove around. Finally he realized I wasn't a typical not-well-informed owner so he agreed to follow the procedure for submitting a case through tech line. I got a call yesterday from them advising they had performed the C3 clutch break in procedure and it had drastically improved the shift quality and speed. I picked her up last night and she was definitely improved. Not going to say it is perfect now, but it's **** near perfect shifts. None of the delay and NVH when it finally decided slam into gear. If you have the rough 1-2 or 2-3 shift issue, I strongly recommend you pressure your dealership to follow this procedure. The OnePack video can be found here (http://www.kaltura.com/index.php/ex...nf_id/33480282/entry_id/0_0weknge7/embed/auto). Hope this helps someone else!

Appreciate the info and glad to hear that your dealer was able to find a solution. Proves that you just can't rely on the 'expertise' of techs to address your concerns these days. It's a shame that the problem is also affecting the new RDX because I'll admit it seems to be a lot of car for the money.

I have the 2.0T Touring (10 speed auto), I'm not sure if my car is affected... how can I check? also, is this break in procedure something we can do ourselves?

So do i. I haven't noticed this issue and i assume the issue is obvious. I have about 1,500 miles on the car so far.

I really like my '19 2.0 touring. Absolutely no issues... so far.

If you have no rough shifting and no issues, then your transmission does not have this condition.

New member here and I have this same issue with my 2020 2.0T Sport. I took it to the dealer that I got my car from and of course they said that this is normal operation. Should I raise the issue with the service manager?

Yes. Hopefully you did.
