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.

Julie was driving home from work in her new 2005 Honda Accord coupe when her right front wheel came apart. Luckily, the failure did not cause any injuries or deaths, however, she was traveling at a high rate of speed consistent with the roadway she was driving on and the car swerved to the right and she had a hard time stoping the car since the brakes had been damaged. The parts and pieces from her wheel caused two other cars to be damamged, by flat tires. The reason for filing this complaint is two fold; (1) to protect anyone else that may have this problem and to register a complaint against Honda motor company who would not stand behind thier oem equipment.
