93K and a New Transmission
By Kelly on
2000 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan
After my 04 Civic was totaled I needed a cheap car reliable car. I found my hail damaged Y2K Accord with only 89K. Three months and 4K miles later, I need a new transmission. I called Honda Customer Service and they said that I was out of luck but I could TRY to get financial assistance IF I take it to a Honda dealership. Pay $3500 for a new transmission and MAYBE you'll pay me some back? No Thanks! Also another code was thrown with the bad transmission code (P1164 bad oxygen sensor) due to some research online it could mean that the ECM needs to be replaced (the car's computer which would cost $800). Good car other than that (haha). Hope it makes it to 150K.
Rides smoother than my Civic did! Comfy inside. Has a sweet cassette deck.
Under 100K there is NO reason that the transmission should be replaced at all. Pay for it to be replaced, Honda! Know when to Recall!
