So I recently bought my son a 2012 Civic 1.8L coupe with a manual transmission. It recently started being loud in 1st and 2nd gear. We changed the transmission fluid but no improvement. I’m afraid it will need a new transmission. Car has 120k miles

Any idea what this will cost? Will go ahead and replace the clutch at the same time.
Any tips or help appreciated.
Thanks

Cost as in doing yourself or cost as in taking it to a shop. Want to do it yourself call Honda ask them how much a new clutch cost. Taking it to a shop call 5-6 reputable shops and get a quote. There problem solved.

My main question was how much is a new manual transmission for a 1.8L car? Is a new one from a dealer the best option, or is there any other reliable options? Anyone replaced one? Is this common with these cars?
Thanks

When a MT needs to be replaced is based on how you drive it if the previous owner beat on it than it will be sooner rather than also MT is a wear and tear item so based on mileage it will ultimately have to be replaced. Best bet is to stay OEM that will be the most reliable option.

without providing additional info, you seem convinced it needs replacement.

search for a suitable replacement at a salvage yard in your zip code.
