I took it somewhere else and they told me it was something else, and that the previous year there was an extended warranty issued on the car. All dealers should be willing to bargain fairly. I took it to the dealer but they are telling me they will not uphold the safety recall for this issue because my mileage was over. Has anyone else had this problem?. Its transmission was in fact replaced by Honda under warranty.
One of the cars was being sold as we arrived - luck of the draw! I go to the cheaper place, get a new radiator and have my rotors replaced. It is causing safety hazard and these should be recall or fixed by honda. Car had been well maintained, keeping all fluid levels monitored and in check with routine maintenance. The dealership was closed sat by the time I got there so monday morning when I went in I had researched and discovered this was a known defect in the sixth generation accords. Im very worried about the safety of my car and myself! But of course the plan does not cover any of my problems.
When you've taken care of the car and still have major problems with it the manufacturer should resolve it. While stopped at a traffic signal the contact removed pressure from the brake pedal when the vehicle suddenly accelerated. And the check engine light is on and the d4 gear indicator light is blinking green. The local mechanics cant seem to be able to help. Occurs often enough that it is causing check engine light to come on and stay on. Took to dealership with complaint 5 seperate times and they lied stating they did not know what problem was and could not find anything wrong.
We have had an Odyssey, Integra, Prelude, Civic and an older model Accord which were problem free but this one Accord has been plagued with transmission issues. How much can you get for it as is? I strongly feel that I haven't caused my car any damages or neglects that would make me at fault for the problem with my vehicle. Replaced the stay bracket and the mild jerk minimized a lot. Early 2006 I took my car in for service because the check engine was on, the car would buckle when changing gears and it was having problems accelerating. I do understand that once you purchase a vehicle that concerns are not typically covered, but this is a well documented safety hazard. Or, at a minimum, cover a majority of the replacement cost. .
Complaint Number: 10303444 Incident Date: January 30, 2010 Date Added to File: January 31, 2010 Description of the Complaint: 2000 honda accord se - 2nd and 3rd gear slips on automatic transmission as it takes a lot of time to change gear. We visited Honda after looking on the internet and seeing many things about transmission problems and after receiving the mechanics report and asked them to do something about it as it is obviously a common manufacturers fault but they refused to go anywhere near the car and tried to sell us a new Accord instead. I don't know if I got a bad honda from the batch, but just being 2 years old, it is experiencing some tough problems. My regular mechanic said the engine was fine but there were minor things I needed such as; new rotors, new tires, and something to do with the emergency brake. Problem is always present at aforementioned speeds. I was driving on the freeway when all of a sudden d4 on the dash starts blinking and I could only drive to 3rd gear.
I'll also need to get other estimates as I have only taken it to the dealer. Complaint Number: 10420276 Incident Date: May 27, 2011 Date Added to File: August 17, 2011 Description of the Complaint: 2000 honda accord received transmission replacement. My mechanic didn't notice it when he drove it. Obviously the 2000 accords have major transmission issues. Not someone just trying to push a car on you. But then 39929mi it happen again and I took it back to them at the dealer in diamond bar they told me that there is no leak because the oil fliud is at the full level. I'll probably call a dedicated trans shop or two on Monday to see what their prices are, hopefully it will be cheaper.
Looked and seemed in good condition. Within twenty miles - car stopped moving forward - manually shifted gears - worked temporarily until got car stopped in parking lot - then nothing - towed back to dealer and received diagnosis next day of transmission failure. I don't feel safe in my mystery car! They could not give me an answer but just told me to drive the car back and wait to see if it still leak. Honda has a real problem and should be forced via recall to address any and all transmission problems or buy the car back. The egr problem has coasted me 336. My mechanic didn't notice it when he drove it. My car was turned in for the recall due to the transmission and parts were changed, but I still have a problem.
I have replaced the transmission twice in this car. The car used to be my dad's and I'm sure he didn't take very good care of it. Complaint Number: 10348891 Incident Date: January 4, 2010 Date Added to File: August 11, 2010 Description of the Complaint: Transmission slips between 1st. I hope that this could be resolve. The voluntary extension of the warranty from 100k to 109k is ridiculous. After researching on the internet, this type of transmission problem is widespread on this model Accord. I called and set up an appointment with the honda dealer.
