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 was traveling southbound I75 in third lane of traffic from right hand emergency strip. The front of the vehicle began to shake. At which point I heard a loud boom from the left front portion of the vehicle, as if the tire gave out. I made my way as close to the shoulder as I could. I saw that the left front tire was dismantled from the car and completely turned backwards. After having car towed to repair shop and fixed they gave me the lower ball joint which was broke in two pieces and said that it failed and caused all the damage.
