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 were driving on freeway 405 near ucla at 55mph. There was a completed flat tire on my left front wheel of Honda Accord 2005. I felt the flat tire and see the ABS light on my dash board turned on. After complete flat tire, the tire debris rip off my ABS sensor wire for the left front wheel. My rim has no damage. Since my tire is only a few months old, so I get free replacement from costco. I think the Honda has a bad design on the ABS sensor wire to my left front wheel. The ABS sensor wire is not properly covered. The flat tire debris ripped off the ABS sensor wire. Contact Honda customer service about this. They said it is not their issue. I think a properly design car should not have anything rip off when a complete flat tire happened. Honda should have covered the ABS wire more effectively.

About two months ago, had tire rapidly deflate while driving at highway speeds. Using spare tire, took car to tire kingdom where they determined cause of flat tire was cracked valve stem. Tire had to be replaced as the sidewall got crushed and integrity of tire rendered it unusable. A month ago as I exited my car, I heard a hissing sound and noticed another tire had air leaking from the valve stem. I was able to inflate the tire at a nearby gas station and bring it to tire kingdom where they replaced that valve. No tire damage was caused, and the tire was still usable. Three weeks ago I drove about 30 feet off the driveway and realized another tire (completely different than the first two) had gone completely flat. Using spare tire, I returned to tire kingdom where they determined the cause of the flat was another cracked valve stem. Because the tire had a crushed sidewall, it could not be repaired and had to be replaced. I asked the mechanic to replace all 4 valve stems, and he indicated that all four of them, including the two that were replaced within the past 2 months, showed signs of dryness and slight cracking.
