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.

problem #2

Nov 102010

Accord EX 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


The digital odometer is not readable because some segments of the numbers go out.

This problem started out as intermittent,but now it is more constant.

The Honda dealership told me it would be $600 to replace the odometer assembly,and send out the new one to be calibrated with the original mileage.

Option 2 for $400,would be to replace the odometer,not send it out for calibration,and place a sticker on the door jamb stating the original mileage when the odometer was replaced.

Option 2 would of course reduce the resale value of the car.

I am due for vehicle inspection on 9-2011,and I might fail if they can't read the mileage of the car.
