I am back again asking for help. You all were so helpful with the brake problem I had maybe you can help me again.
I have a 1996 Honda Accord Anniversary Edition, for the last few weeks the SRS light would flicker on and off now it stays on continually. Does anybody know what I can do about this. Is it a serious problem?
I will wait for your responses.

I have an 08 V6 which lags when shifted into drive but otherwise seems normal.
I have seen this mentioned on other forums for Honda vehicles, so there must be
many other Accords that exhibit this behavior. I would like to know how common
this is and if it is any indication of tranny problems down the road. I searched through the Honda service bulletins and can't find any mention of this in them for any Honda vehicle. Does anyone have any detailed info on this problem?

I have two Accords, a 1996 and a 2006, both 4-cyl, both automatic. Both have about a 1 second delay from the time they are put in gear to the time they actually go into it.
Neither has exhibited ANY transmission problems, and the '96 has 180,000 miles on it. The 2006 has 31,000. Both are daily drivers, and both see high-rpms from time-to-time; no problems.

Hi, I have a 2001 4 cyl Honda EX with 44K miles purchased used at 43K. Drove 1K miles and the transmission made some weird noises. So, I learned of the warranty extension on 1999-2001 Honda transmissions in this forum and had it replaced under the warranty. Apparently they updated the transmission because now it shifts very smoothly where the replaced trannie was very harsh when cold. I had an '89 SEI whose transmission went 307K miles without a peep. I'm expecting similar performance with the current transmission. I've had Honda cars since 1975 and can't imagine having any other brand.

Hello anyone that can help. I need help installing a door handle for a 1996 Honda Accord Anniversary Ed. The handle part broke off but everything else is in place. If it is not hard to install, I will try to do it myself.

I'm not surprised that you've not had any trannie problems. It was in the years 1999 through and including 2001 that Honda trannie problems surfaced. The reason given by a Honda dealer is that Honda farmed out the transmission manufacturing to a Japanese vendor during the years mentioned above. As a result of poor quality, Honda returned to in-house manufacturing. Hence the transmission recalls.
#71 of 143 '05 Accord transmission reliable?

I have 65,000 miles on my '05 V-6 Accord, no shifting problems. Did this year model have many issues?
I can't decide whether to keep it for the long haul, but the prospect of a diesel Accord sometime in the next year or two is attractive. Any good info on this?
