At just over 100,000 miles the torque
converter seal failed ($600.00), and
now 4,000 miles later the transmission
is sending fault code P0780 (Shift
Malfunction), cost and cause as yet
undetermined. 2000 Accord has 177
service bulletins issued, my 1994
Accord only has 66 service bulletins
issued. I think the
quality/reliability of the Honda Accord
has slipped considerably over the
years. I do not recommend buying
Comfortable car, drives nice.
The Accord has become a computerized
nightmare. Get rid of some of the
electronic gadgets and dodads that
supposedly improve efficiency and the
car might regain its reliability.
