Notes: The 2000 Honda Accord suffers from widespread transmission failure, subframe rust, & problems with the airbag system (SRS). We recommend avoiding this model year like the plague.

The transmission begins slipping & eventually has to be replaced, typically soon after 90,000 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.

The SRS warning light likes to come on due to a defective seat belt sensor -- typically the driver's side. This sensor is covered under Honda's lifetime seat belt warranty, but some dealers charge a $100+ "diagnostic fee" or tell customers the entire SRS unit ($800) is bad.

Accord EX 3.0L V6

I love my Accord so don't get me wrong but in the winter this car is a definite pain or ice box!! The AC has to be on to run the defroster so when the defroster is on so is the AC and I have turned the temperature up to 90 and it still freezing unless I turn off the defroster. We have had the car to a couple of different shops over the years and they all say that they can't find anything wrong. This is getting old or actually it was old the first winter we had to deal with this. And more annoying is that no one can find the problem. Summer though is nice the AC works great. I just changed my cabin filter a few months ago and that help the AC get colder but so far the heater still has a mind of it's own!! So till I get my next Accord I will be cold again this winter!!
