Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1996 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 222007

Accord 25th Anniversary 2.2L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


1996 25th Anniversary Edition 2.2L 4Cyl. 65000 miles. Perfect car overall. Transmission slips when accelerating from rolling stop. Downshifting into 1st gear problem. When coming to a complete stop and then accelerating, this slippage does not occur. A friend with the LX model has the same issue but not as severe. Appears to be a transmission problem for this year of Accords. Maybe the V6 version is different? I was told to get the transmission checked and serviced. For the low miles on this car, this problem does not make sense at all. There are no leaks. I would expect this problem on a Ford not a Honda. Fantastic fuel economy for this type of car, great ride. Transmission problems.......BEWARE!!!!
