2000 Honda Accord Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

The transmission is terrible in this car. I mean, absolutely terrible. Honda's claim at reliability is totally false-especially with this year model range. I purchased the car two years ago, and I'm very lucky I got that much out of it. I had the standard transmission failure that most experience: first gear shifts hard when going to second. Finally, the car went into fourth gear and stayed there; it wouldn't shift down unless I used the gear shifter; even then I only had access to first and second gear. Cost to fix it? $1500. Even then the repairman said the car would go through the same process three or so years from then because of an inherent defect in the design. Don't buy this car.


Favorite Features

Sporty feel, tight handling even ten years after initial purchase, great gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

TRANSMISSION.

Review

While Accords are typically reliable cars, they seem to have frequent transmission problems. Unless you find one of these for dirt cheap (including an already rebuilt transmission), I suggest looking for a different car entirely. My 2000 Accord got to about 130,000 and suddenly developed severe transmission issues. It's now approaching 140,000 and I'm still driving it 20+ miles to work every day, but every day I get in, I wonder if it will make it home. I asked Honda for some good-will in helping me fix the transmission (even a discount would've been fine!) since these cars are known for their transmission woes, but they flatly declined. I don't see myself buying another Honda.


Favorite Features

Gets from point A to point B. Handles well. Otherwise, there's not much else to love.


Suggested Improvements

There are no LATCH-equipped seats, so this is not a good car for those with infants and small children. Monetary transmission-fixing assistance should be offered by Honda.

Review

I bought my accord in my second year of college. I was replacing my 00 GMC Sonoma due to lots of traveling. When purchased Honda replaced its cursed transmission at the dealership for free. I have had no problems with this car but basic maintenance such as tires, timing belt, oil, adding 134-a, and brakes. I am currently at 142,XXX miles and the car still runs like new. The car is a blast to drive and can keep up with almost any current v6 car. The vTec system engages flawlessly and still impresses me for a 2.3 L SOHC motor. As for comfort, I am 250lbs and I am very comfortable for 500 mile road trips. Plenty of power for passing. Gas mileage 55 mph 34 mpg, 65 mph 28 mpg, 75 mph 22 mpg, 100+ 12- mpg


Favorite Features

power everything, ABS, sunglasses holder, sporty handling, comfort, overall quality, alloy rims (lx and se), small turning radius, lack of blind spots


Suggested Improvements

mid-motor design instead of FWD, more reliable transmission for the mass, even a 6 speed transmission, better 6 cd changer than Pioneer, 4 wheel rotors, bring back the prelude

Review

All I can say is "WOW FACTOR", I have owned my Honda for the past 6 years, brand used with 49,000 mi on the odometer. Reliability - flawless, fun factor - yeah baby, comfort - oh yeah! I have put little into this car with the exception of routine maintenance and here 136,000 mi later it still runs like a dream. I have no plans on getting rid of it, new car - uh no, new motor - yeah when it needs it, same goes for the tranny, I would definately recommend this car to anybody looking to buy one, sorry kids, get your own Honda.


Favorite Features

Easy on the eyes and the wallet!!


Suggested Improvements

A little more umph......

Favorite Features

Very smooth ride, great gas mileage.

None
