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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2000 Honda Accord suffers from widespread transmission failure, subframe rust, & problems with the airbag system (SRS). We recommend avoiding this model year like the plague.

The transmission begins slipping & eventually has to be replaced, typically soon after 90,000 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.

The SRS warning light likes to come on due to a defective seat belt sensor -- typically the driver's side. This sensor is covered under Honda's lifetime seat belt warranty, but some dealers charge a $100+ "diagnostic fee" or tell customers the entire SRS unit ($800) is bad.

Hi, My 2000 Accord did something new yesterday. After driving at average of 65 mph, on interstate for approx 35 miles, AC off - car went went dead upon reaching the first stoplight. I had just braked for the light, of course the car was in drive, the red dash lights came on, the car simply died, I didn't read the indicator lights because I was shocked and had to get out of the intersection. So I immediately turned the key to restart, drove to the parking garage, left the car for 4 hours, got in to go home and it drove home fine. I didn't drive it as hard, went slower. What could be the prob? I have had regular maintenance and the car is well cared for.
