I am on my 4th. Transmission with 186,000 miles its an ok car except the transmissions suck I have invested $8,500 in 15 years just on rebuilt transmissions 4 of them I will not buy another Honda!! Do your resarch on these cars if your planning on buying one
Have had a lot of problems with this
vehicle. Hondas are great cars but
have had many problems with this one.
With only 33,000 miles we have had
loud noise problems that took 3
attempts to fix. In addition the
transmission has been replaced and the
Bought new as a "demo" model. Vehicle
was great for about 9 months. Then the
fan switch quit working on the lower
settings. That was replaced under
warranty. THEN, a "transmission"
recall. The transmission still doesn't
work right. When the vehicle is
setting flat and you put it into D4,
the vehicle hesitates to engage for
about 3-5 seconds. Took it back to
the "local dealer PLOHAL HONDA" and
they insist nothing is wrong. Now, the
blower fan quit working "again".Finally
this summer the air conditioner emits
warm air. The local maintenance person
put his hand up the the vent and
said, "well it feels ok to me". I
anticipated better testing!
Fit and finish, styling, performance
Improve dealership competancies, and
get a transmission that works!!
I have only had my Honda 1.5 years and
I need a transmission already. The
dealership said there was a glitch in
this particular year of Honda Accords.
I never got anything in the mail
telling me that. Thank goodness I
still have 2,000 miles left on my
warranty. New transmission shipped in
from Japan-$4,500, 2 or 3 days of a
rental car and labor? Hmmm, sounds a
little expensive, even for a Honda!!
I love the comfort of the car. The
seats are great!
