I guess you need to do more research since there are many people complaining about the same issue. Honda are not better then any car anymore they are getting crapier more and more not like before if you say up to 1992 then I would agree. I have facts and I have been through it already and many parts were replaced including major components so how can you justify saying that there are no major problems when hundreds of accord having this same exact issue.

Because hundereds of cars out of 1.2 million (the approx number of 2003-2006s on the road) is a GREAT track record.

The truth is there are thousands of Accords out there with major problems. Just do the research and you will find that not only accords but automobiles as a whole are made with more plastic cheaper parts and they have more breakdown than ever before. I've been researching Honda and Toyota, and Mazda for several years and they all are plagued with major problems. Check the forums and also nhtsa.dot.gov and you will see there are many major as well as minor problems with virtually every car built. There are no solutions for many of these problems. Just ask those unfortunate individuals with defective auto trannys in 1998-2003 Accords.
#3392 of 3564 Tranny Warranty
May 27, 2006 (8:11 pm)
I have a 01 LX V6 which I bought used from my sister in 2004. I am new to the forum and had a question. Has Honda extended the warranty on the tranny? MSN reliability ratings say so.
I recently received a letter from Honda extending the warranty on OPDS. I have never received anything about transmission or EGR valves.
Thanks in advance!

" All plagued with major problems"
"there are many major as well as minor problems with virtually evry car built"
So, what is your suggestion? A bicycle?

Do not get upset, there are many forum subscribers who will still be a few years from their ability to buy or drive any automobile. Just ignore them and wish them luck, they are jsut starting in a market for a bicycle...chuckle! The anti-everything crowd made a mistake, they really meant to say "Hyundai" instead of "Honda." Ho, Ho, Ho...Merry Christmas. Chuckle...!

I hope he has a better transmission than the horror stories he proclaims...Better grease up that chain...
(this really isn't directed at seniorjose...)
Truthfully, every car-line will have issues...humans design the cars, and I don't know about you, but the last time I checked, none of us were perfect. If you didn't know that problems existed for every kinda of car, then I don't think you want to search things like "Ford Vehicle Fires".
#3396 of 3564 2005 Honda Accord V6 Transmission problem!!!
Jun 15, 2006 (1:48 pm)
I recently purchased my Honda Accord V6 roughly around Novemeber of 2005. For the most part I haven't really had any problems with the car. I did feel that the car does pull to the right though. But the as of right now !!!! My car engine light came on and I felt the car was stalling for a sec everytime the automatic gear shift up or down. I took the car in the dealership to get it checked out. I was thinking it couldn't be anything major, I mean it's a HONDA for god sake and I only had 13k miles on the car. I was definately mislead by HONDA reputation for being dependable and reliable, cause the whole TRANSMISSION had to be replaced already. I mean what are the odds of this happening. I had over 3 used cars some dating back to the 90's and not one need the transmission replaced. HONDA has really gone down in the quality of there cars. I'm suppose to talk to the manager at the dealership about how I feel w/ my accord having the transmission replaced 13k. How should I go about qquestioning him?

One problematic transmission does not make a car a lemon. The transmission is a machine. Not all machines are perfect.
Unless there is a problem with the warranty work, why are you concerned?

I guess he's concerned because the change has knocked down the resale value of his car!
I guess the problem was with a faulty torque converter which could have been replaced instead of the whole transmission. Anyway, as long as you have warranty, you should be safe.
