trans problem already

ok, only had this car for a week and the trans is going out. i work for baytown honda, and the shop foreman had told me the 5 speeds in the prelude had a problem with the main shaft bearing. i can hear it getting louder, but today another problem showed it's ugly face. i can't get it into reverse now. when i do get it in reverse it sticks in reverse.

the clutch is new, and i've only put 615 miles on the car since i got it. any thoughts?

Re: trans problem already

well got it back from the shop today and it was a bad main shaft bearing. apparently it's a weak point from honda. oh well, all new bearings and seals now, so i'm good to go.
