Solenoids are a common problem and can be replaced for that. Mine shifts like new now.

Worst case you could have replaced the mechatronics for 1500 + fluid/labor. It's pretty easy to do yourself though.

Really sucks that I (we) even have to do that though.. I had a civic that had like 250K miles on it and I haven't done anything to it except oil and timing belt once
