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 #3

Aug 202011

Accord SE 2.3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 125,000 miles


The right rear window went out in closed position and still has not been fixed. The driver's side went out and i had Century Glass on Colerain Ave in Cincinnati repair it. Those morons put it back together and the locks quit working. i told them it was a mechanical problem and they said it was my fault. After i had a competent person look at it i found out that they rolled the factory felt in the hole where the lock comes through the door. irritating.
