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.

Windshield wiper motor on 2003 Honda Accord V6 inoperable. Took to dealer service department. Tech inspected and said that the part was on a nationwide backorder. Part was expected more than 30 days from the date of inspection. Called Honda national customer service center. Case number was assigned but no calls were received from case rep after 3-5 working day waiting period.
