Notes: The 1999 Honda Accord suffers from widespread transmission failure, subframe rust, engine shuts off while driving, & peeling paint. We recommend avoiding this model year like the plague.

The transmission begins slipping & eventually has to be replaced, typically soon after 100,000 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.

Engine stalling while driving in the 1999 Accord is typically caused by a defective ignition switch -- inexpensive to repair (under $200) but dangerous.

Peeling paint has also been an issue for these Accords. Most of the complaints are with darker paint colors -- especially green & blue.

Accord Coupe V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles


My Accord Coupe was recalled for a defect in the power front seat several years ago. Then in '07 the seat suddenly broke for no reason and it won't move forward anymore. It still tilts and goes up and down. A rod fell off and Honda put it back on, but said I needed a new motor. I can't remember what they would charge to fix it, but it was pricey. Sounds fishy to me. I'm suspecting they screwed it up when they did the recall and it took a while for it to fall off.
