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.

Well bought the car last week and they told me that it needed a transmission fluid change well clearly that didn't work at all. It has a hard time shifting between 3 and 4 and lost almost complete power while driving and then hard shifted scared the crap out of me. This is a safety issue!!!!

Accord EX 4 cyl

Honda had recall on transmission which they replaced. Now the car is acting up again. For the past two months I have continued to have to park it while trying to determine what is wrong. The vehicle would not go, bog down, jump into gear, etc. After 3 repair places, it seems that the torch converter code is now on. Thought I saw where there was recall on the torch converter also...still researching as to what to do.
