1998 Honda Accord LX V6 4dr Sedan
At 56000 miles the transmission is
slipping when shifting from 1st to 2nd
gear. The check engine light will come
on with a code indicating the
transmission has a fault. Seems to be
a design problem that Honda admitted
to in 2000-2002 but not 1998 and 1999.
Don't buy one unless you get the
transmission checked out. The cost for
a new transmission id $4000!!! Ouch!!!
I am trading mine in. Hopefully none
of the readers will buy it!!! The
Odessey with the V6 is having the same
problem. I was at the dealer getting
mine evaluate and someone was there
with the same oriblem on her Odessey.
Fix transmission problem. Extend
warranty to 1998 and 1999. Not worth
losing your reliable reputation over
this major problem.
