Notes: The 2005 Honda Accord suffers from transmission failure. It's not a huge widesperad problem like in prior years, but definitely still something to consider.

The transmission begins slipping & eventually has to be replaced, typically soon after 90,000 miles & with a repair cost of over $2,000.

Transmission failure problems have been a huge problem for the Accord & several other Honda models all through the early 2000s model years. Honda eventually extended the transmission warranty to 93 months/109k miles for the 2000-2001 Accords as a class action lawsuit settlement, but owners of other Accord model years with transmission problems are out of luck.

2005 Honda Accord Owner Comments

I previously drove my aunt's 2005 Honda Accord hybrid on several occasions. Almost as soon as the vehicle was purchased, on more than one occasion, the brakes failed and caused accidents. The accelerator would also accelerate on its own. The car would simply speed up on its own. The car would also at times stop or turn off on its own. I assumed because the car was a hybrid or different that it was normal. At times when accidents would occur, I couldn't believe what had happened. The car literally drove away. A few times others drove the car and mentioned the same. My aunt previously tried trading in the vehicle, but it was too expensive to trade in. On January 11,2011. A fatal accident occurred while driving this vehicle. My mother, whom is a precautious driver was driving my cousin to school and were involved in a fatal car accident. The Honda struck a school bus right in the middle. I believe the car like on many other occasions accelerated on its own or the brakes failed. I feel devastated that I have lost my mother and cousin because of this accident, but feel that my mother was not at fault. She was always a safe driver and in this case I believe the vehicle was at fault.
