CarComplaints.com Notes: The 1999 Honda Accord suffers from widespread transmission failure, subframe rust, engine shuts off while driving, & peeling paint. 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.

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.

Engine stalling while driving in the 1999 Accord is typically caused by a defective ignition switch -- inexpensive to repair (under $200) but dangerous.

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

READING OTHER FORUMS, IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS HAS HAPPENED TO OTHER ACCORDS OF THE SAME YEAR. LOOKING TO GATHER MORE INFO ABOUT THIS.

HONDA ONLY TELLS ME THE BRING IT IN TO HAVE THE ENGINE CHECKED.

HAS ANYONE BEEN THREW THIS. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED HONDA ACCORDS AND HAD A LOT OF THE OVER THE YEARS.

I'AM NOW HAVING SECOND THOUGHTS ABOUT HONDA. IS THIS A DESIGN FLAW AND HONDA DOES NOT ACKNOWLEDGE IT?
