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.

I have a 2005 Honda Accord hybrid. The ima battery has spontaneously discharged. No one knows where the electrical current is going when this happens.

4/13/2007. 2005 hybrid. Consumer states that the vehicle operates with gas or the nickel-metal hydride battery pack. The ima battery leaked fumes and the fumes corroded locking the mechanism of the trunk. The door release cable for the gas door had to be replaced.
