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 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.

THERE IS A WHINING AND CLICKING NOISE FROM THE TRANSMISSION. THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN REPORTED TO LINDSAY HONDA IN COLUMBUS A NUMBER OF TIMES. THE ONLY ACTION THEY OFFER IS TO CHANGE THE TRANSMISSION OIL AND CHARGE ME FOR THE SERVICE. I ALLOWED THEM TO PERFORM THIS SERVICE WHILE THE PROBLEM STILL PERSISTS.

I learned to not buy another Honda in my life.<p>That is not in warranty, but I see so many people with the same problem or think that the mechanical model of the car did not come out good
