CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2005 Honda Accord suffers from transmission failure. It's not a huge widesperad problem like in prior years, but definitely still something to consider.

The transmission begins slipping & eventually has to be replaced, typically soon after 90,000 miles & with a repair cost of over $2,000.

Transmission failure problems have been a huge problem for the Accord & several other Honda models all through the early 2000s model years. Honda eventually extended the transmission warranty to 93 months/109k miles for the 2000-2001 Accords as a class action lawsuit settlement, but owners of other Accord model years with transmission problems are out of luck.

The radio still worked but the Cd player did not work and it wouldn't eject my Cd's. My choices to fix it were to spend several hundred to fix this radio, replace it with the same radio from the dealer (without an upgraded "input" for a i-pod) for about $700 or replace the radio $275 and the air controls $275. At least with the last option I was upgrading the radio and getting more bells & whistles like blue tooth capability.

My CD player stopped working about two month ago. I have 6 CD's loaded and pressed the eject button to take one out but just got a Mechanical Error Message. If I was to hit a bump it may work. I had an appointment at the dealer in Stroudsburg, PA for a Honda recall. I mentioned the CD problem when I dropped the car off. The service rep said it would cost $93.00 to look at it. I said no that is okay. When they finished the recall they gave me a list of things that they looked at and said that need to be fixed. I told them thank you. When I picked up the car, I pressed the radio display and OMG the CD option no longer showed the Mechanical Error Message. OMG again - it actually didn't even acknowledge that there was a CD player or any CD's. I pressed it again XM1 and XM2 where is my CD Option. When I dropped the car off at least it showed me the Error Message on the display and my 6 CD's loaded even though it wouldn't play or eject them! I back in the office and explained it to them and the manager got the tech guy and he said OH. OH OH - he said let me go and show the guys in the back they have more experience. If I came for a transmission upgrade what does that have to do with my CD player. Upon the tech return he didn't say a word put my key on the counter and walked away. The manager said... "we didn't do anything to the CD player". I said I understand that part but, if you didn't touch it "then why doesn't the display acknowledge that a CD player exists with 6 CD's loaded". He just brushed it off and said I could pay the money for a test. Are you really serious. I called American Honda and they said they can't answer technical questions I can pay to get it tested. OMG! I want to scream.

I have replaced the radio, and I hope it works for me. I've gone to the auto dealer and it is just costing too much money to fix. What can I do?
