A method proposed to assign the symmetry character of the rovibrational spectrum of trimers has been applied to the case of H\(^+_3\). This system, much lighter than previously investigated rare gas three body molecules such as Ar\(_3\) or Ne\(_3\), constitutes a challenging example to test the possible limitations of this approach. Calculation of the corresponding rovibrational spectra for \(J=1\) and rotational constants and the corresponding comparison with results from hyperspherical coordinates methods reveals that distorsion Coriolis coupling terms, not accounted for in the original method, play a significant role for some specific symmetry representations.
