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 #1

Dec 222006

(reported on)

Accord LX 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles

I found on internet that it is a common problem for 2 door V6 and 4 door V6 models of Honda 2000. I have contacted Honda USA (800-999-1009) and they would not give a goodwill consideration. Even my Honda dealer was surprised.
