My Honda Jazz's gearbox has been rebuilt once and is failing again - what do I do?

Your column has previously commented on the known ball bearing problems with gearboxes in the 2005 Honda Jazz. Having taken it to main dealer with problem in June 2010, Honda authorised full repair with no charge, stripped it down, replaced the ball bearings and rebuilt the gearbox. The work was guaranteed for 12 months. One month later, it is occasionally jumping out of low gear into neutral at low speed. Having taken it to same main dealer, they say the fault cannot be traced and that the fault is intermittent. I've been told to bring it back when fault is more apparent. What course of action do you now recommend?
