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.
