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 EX 3.0L V-Tech V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 128,000 miles


Well What can I say. I put an aftermarket cat on for 150$ 3 yrs ago. I was informed by a local fix it man that a cheap aftermarket, such as the one i chose to have put on, only last around 3 yrs, and that a app. 900$ Honda catalytic converter would last about 5 yrs. YOU DO THE MATH!! This time I spend a hundred dollars more for a 25,000 mile warranty and a little bit supposed better cat. We will see.
