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

Accord 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles


: the contact stated while driving various speeds and depressing the brake pedal, the vehicle had a longer braking distance. This occurred on two separate occasions. The vehicle was driven to the dealer, where the problem could not be duplicated. Updated 2/12/2007 - the rear brakes had to be replaced although they had less than 5000 miles in them. The consumer feels that the rear brake are doing most of the braking which is causing the vehicle to slide rather than stop. The dealer told the consumer that they think his driving habits are the cause of the brakes wear so quickly. When rolling down the right or left front windows the consumer heard a grinding noise. The technician lubricated the window glass runs.
