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.

Vehicle experienced premature wear of rear brake pads. The consumer was informed by a highly reputable Honda Agency that Honda does have brake problems because of an inadequate rear brake system which probably prematurely wears out the rear brake pads. When the consumer confronted another service technician with this information, he stated, "well, we do replace a lot of them." Consumer felt the problem should have been disclosed before he purchased the vehicle.
