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

Apr 022013

Accord LX 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 114,000 miles


When I bought the Honda Accord 2000 LX 4 cyl summer sale of 1999 it was rated #1 car of the year-again!

Can't walk into dealership without an $800 bill. Moved from Arizona to Idaho when car was 4yrs old. When it was 30 degrees or less the car would not start. After multiple tows and repairs that did not fix the problem

($3,000) I asked a guy who had an old civic about it. It turned out to be a sensor under the dash on the drivers side. The part was $150. Dealer said they had no problem starting it, but charged me for parts anyway. NOW the car has been to 2 mechanics-breaks replaced, new drums, calipers, tierod, bearings, tires w'balance, struts, and axle on right side. There is a loud clicking noise coming from the frontend and a loud creaking, moaning noise in the rear end. The moaning noise in the rear gets much worse when there is weight in the trunk. The clicking noise from the frontend sounds like a baseball card that is clothes pined to the spokes of a bicycle tire. It clicks faster and louder when breaks applied. Sometimes it goes away for a day and then comes back. I am afraid to drive on the freeway for fear that something will fall off and land on the car behind me! I am not fond of breaking down either!!! I am faithful about changing the fluids and general up keep. I am going to keep driving it until somthing just blows up. I can't afford to take on a car payment. I 'm stuck with it.
