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. 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.

2000 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 132010

Accord LX V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 122,000 miles


I have a 2000 Honda Accord LX with 120K miles. It won't start when it's hot outside. No service light illuminate & no error codes code up when I up it on the reader. New battery, timing belt & spark plugs. This is too much of an issue because I work early mornings & by the time I get off of work it's hot out. I live in Texas so heat in the summer is constant. I refuse to drive my car from season o season. Please tell me that this issue can be repaired. If it was the starter or alternator, it wouldn't start up at all. The starter & alternator doesn't have certain temperture preferences in order to work. I need this problem fixed ASAP. Its annoying to be able to get to work early in the morning & not be able to drive home because my car sets in the heat.
