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 wipers quit working while driving in rain. Could no longer see adequately to drive the vehicle. Taking to dealer for repair.

1. windshield washer system does not work properly, or at all below 38 degrees. 2. this failure makes seeing out the windshield hard to impossible with splash back and deicing fluid on the roads. 3. I was told by the dealer that Honda knows of the problem but has no solution.
