Shifting Problems
By Ted on


2006 Honda Accord LX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I chose this car over the others because the Accords I drove were smooth and comfortable. The new one that was delivered for me shifts harder then the ones I drove and my daughter's '06 Accord V6/5A. I've had it to the dealer 3 times. They have reprogrammed the PCM twice and it has helped the uncomfortable shifts; but not corrected it to what I found was normal in others. Please take the car for a long drive first.

Best Features

Smooth engine/trans in 5th. Manuverable. Getting about 32 MPG on highway.

Worst Features

Need a smooth shifting transmission. Drop the feature that slows the car going downhill. I'm used to cars idling downhill - saves gas. I have to add gas and the car doesn't shift to higher gears until the road levels out.
