I have been a long time viewer of this forum but this is my first post. I am 2 hours from where I live. I am at my girlfriends house when my 2011 M/T 1st and 2nd gear shifter control cable has snapped
Automotive tire Motor vehicle Gas Auto part Nut

I am in need of a new one quickly as I am worried to muss to much work. I haven't been able to find any other than the very pricey one on honda's website. If anyone has a spare one to sell me it would be a blessing. Or if anyone know how to get one that is not as expensive as the one on honda store. Since it is Sunday I haven't been able to contact any of my honda dealers near me.

On a weekend, you are kind of in a bad way. Look for auto parts places near where you are or since you know what broke, search the Internet for the part or stop by any parts store and see if they can order one or have one in stock or some kind of repair part to hook the 2 pieces together. Last resort is to use your towing and have it towed to a mechanic you know who can repair it. Does not have to be a dealer! Dealer will be the most expensive way to get it fixed, but the advantage is they may have the part in stock(Highly unlikely, but they are maybe able to get it quickly and expensively). If it were me, I would have it taken to a known good mechanic.

Hopefully your car insurance has towing and rental coverage. Or you have towing coverage some other way.

Hell yeah the kay-humpers finally, and inadvertently, serving a useful purpose by way of spare parts for the common folk as opposed to just clogging up the forum repetitiously and gratuitously blurting about how everyone should ditch their perfectly functional sub-300K mile powertrains in a time of record global inflation so they can cosplay as Paul Walker in the final moments of this imminent anthropogenic apocalypse.
