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.

Cost of repair was $901.50. Talked with Honda, they asked me what they wanted them to do, I told them to pay for the repair. They were upset that I didn't take it to a Honda dealer, they said that by taking the car to a Honda dealer they could control the cost of the parts. I was told to pay the bill and submit it to Honda for consideration. The car is at Brentwood Automotive in Baltimore, 410-889-6748, a highly regarded repair shop specializing in Honda and Toyota. Will at Brentwood said he hadn't seen anything like this before.
