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.

The manufacture did not include a spare tire in the vehicle. Instead they included a can of sealant in place of the spare. The owner's manual stated that the sealant may not work if the puncture was located outside the tread, the puncture was wider than about 3/16 of an inch, if the wheel rim was damaged, or if the tire sealant has expired. Also, owner's manual on page 230 indicated that if the consumer used the sealant it may make the tire warranty invalid the consumer was concerned because he felt that this was an inadequate way of repairing the tire. The consumer has not had the problem as of yet. The consumer contacted the manufacturer to try to get them to purchase a spare tire, and they would not. This was on 8-12-05, case number N032005081200173. The vehicle was a hybrid electric that ran on gasoline or electricity.
