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.

When we went to pick up our car at the airport and the steering was so stiff. Anyway we when tried again it freed up and we were able to make the 2 and a half hour drive home. But when my husband tried to go out again that night the EPS light was on and the steering wouldn't budge, you literally have to wrestle with it. Now we are trying to figure out what the problem do we fix it? WE are in Jamaica so we don't know anyone that knows about frustrating. Are we going to have to replace a whole part or is this just a matter of a spark plug?
