ANNOUNCEMENT: The Car Book 2018 is now online!

Ratings on over 1,000 new & used models going back 5 years, from the Center from Auto Safety. Learn more about The Car Book 2018 here. 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.

2000 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #1

May 042009

Accord SE 4 cyl. V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,000 miles


I had the car towed when it overheated and then towed to my mechanic. The mechanic removed the head for a pressure check. It was not the head. Could not figure out what problem was after having the car for 4 weeks and consulting Honda experts. Finally had the engine replaced with one that had 33,000 miles on it. I was so pissed because shortly after that I had another major with the car. It's been one headache after another lately with this car.
