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.

My Air Conditioner stopped blowing cool air in 2009, and the problem was fixed by changing out some crucial A/C parts, at the cost of around $500 total.

The AC was not cooling at all! In Texas you really need the AC!! Took the car into Christian Brothers Automotive (highly recommend them for any repair needs) and they fixed it.

Had to "remove evaporator replace Exp. valve and receiver drier".

This is my 3rd Honda; I keep my cars for 10 plus years; this is the first one that I have had any problems with and I have had major out of pocket expenses incurred other than the routine scheduled maintenance items. (I am adding another complaint because we are also experiencing problems with the car not starting intermittently.)
