No - that's what being out of warranty means, it's not their problem anymore. This repair is on you.

Call up your local Acura dealer and talk to the service manager.

Tell the service manager you're have the third gear problems and you want to bring it in.

Some times if it's out warranty they will still fix it!

Also don't tell the service manager the miles over the phone.

TBS 08-018

it was a known problem and if you aren't the original owner and it wasn't fixed before, Acura will work with you on a fix...they're good that way.

Despite what PMack says out of warranty does NOT mean they won't still make it right for you, you might be eligible for Goodwill consideration, ( the Rep could authorize the repair) generally they like to see a good service history with a car especially transmission services in your case,, the car being modified in anyway will not help,, good luck it's a crap shoot but I have done that exact repair ( third gear and synchro set) Well out of warranty,,, just so you know if it was a safety related RECALL (which its not) it wouldn't matter how old how many miles the car had, or even if it was totalled, they would fix it,,,
