Manual Clutch Needs Overhaul
By Kent on
2006 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I bought this car brand new off of the lot back in Aug 2006. I really like this car, is comfortable and fun to drive. The stereo system gets some lame reviews but I find it to be pretty good compared to other cars. That being said watch out for the clutch and shifter. The shifter knob looks destroyed after only 3 yrs and the clutch is weak at best (See below) This is my third manual transmission car and have never experienced this kind of problem.
I like the Navigation system and the Graphite interior.
Shifter knob deteriorates quickly. 3 yrs old and it is destroyed. Also the Clutch on this is junk! 3 gear sync out in less than 18k and again in 12k. 4th gear out in less than 40k. Honda is aware of the problem but dealers are reluctant to honor warranty. See technical bulletins
