CarComplaints.com Notes: The 1998 Honda Accord suffers from widespread transmission failure, peeling paint, & subframe rust. We recommend avoiding this model year like the plague.

The transmission begins slipping & eventually has to be replaced, typically soon after 100,000 miles & with a repair cost of over $2,000.

Peeling paint has also been a huge issue for these Accords. Most of the complaints are with darker paint colors -- especially green & blue.

Subframe rust near the front passenger side wheel has become a problem recently, due to the poorly positioned A/C drain hose directly above that area. Repair cost to the subframe is over $2,000.

Car just stops running. Have to crank over and over until it fired up again. Had check /low fuel pressure. How do I fix this?

I have sourced a replacement of the pump from local stores to no avail. Local auto mechanics have tried five pumps, but none worked. I have tried the Honda website and there is no help in sight. It is frustrating. - Imaga
