If you bought it new, you should have received a notice from Honda for an extended warranty. You can google for it too. It basically extend the power train warranty for the car but it is not a recall. Honda calls it a "judder" during shifting of the transmission. Call your dealer to find out if they will take your car in for a ECM update. It is supposed to reprogram the AT shifting pattern to reduce the "judder".
