2006 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #5

Jun 152006


  • 10,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Honda Accord. While driving approximately 80 mph the vehicle would not shift into gear and the speed would not decrease. The contact shifted the gear to D3 in order to lower the speed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who was unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 10,000.

problem #4

  • 51,000 miles
I was driving along in major traffic on a busy thoroughfare and suddenly the engine lost acceleration, the engine light came on, and the D (rive) light started blinking apparently signifying a major transmission problem. The car immediately lost speed down to 10 miles an hour and I had to navigate out of busy traffic via a left hand turn to a safe resting spot not knowing whether I would make it through the oncoming traffic. I had 3 passengers in the car. The car was ultimately towed to the dealer.

Left a light and made a left-hand turn when the transmission "disengaged." (had revs, no movement.) D3 would not work, D2 got it going again. Never could get it to work in D3 or D on the way home (about 5 miles). Stopped once and restarted the engine, but had the same problem. Left it sit for a while at home (2 H), and tried again; same problem. Had it towed to a dealer and left it there for a week. They used it for 39 miles but did not find anything.

1) new wheel bearing at 10,768 miles 2) new transmission and removal/replacement of same shift cable at 10,791 miles (service tech acknowledges the noise on the work ticket) 3) rotate and balance of tires due to a serious vibration problem in the steering wheel at 10,791 miles 4) resurfacing of original rotors, 4-wheel alignment due to noise at 11,002 miles 5) replacement of old rotors with new rotors and brake pads at 11,184 miles. We cannot understand why all this work has been performed on our vehicle if everyone now states that they cannot hear the grinding noise. We have made multiple good faith attempts (5 logged which includes the final attempt, and 1 not logged), to have our car repaired correctly. At this time, we are only left with the route of arbitration procedures or be left with a substandard Honda product.
