problem #3

Dec 022018

Accord ES 2.4L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles

Transmission failed while driving, shifts into first gear only, no acceleration (at 160,000 miles). I had to replace the transmission. My sister-in-law had the same problem a lot sooner. Now my daughter has the same problem with her Honda Accord V6 2003 (120,000 miles). My next car will not be Honda.

problem #2

Jul 142016


  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles

Dealership claims there’s nothing wrong with my transmission stalling when “punching” the accelerator, only to be told to turn off the Econ mode. Have brought the car in 3 or 4 times, to be told the same thing. This is a dangerous problem, particularly when trying to merge into fast moving traffic.

problem #1

Accord LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,500 miles

car in gear engine revs but will not move

Never had any problems with transmission before this, and only have 68500 miles on vehicle. Started car and malfunction light was on and car would not go into reverse. In drive it would go a short distance and then the engine would rev and no longer move. Waiting to hear from repair shop as to what is actually wrong and what repairs will be needed. Not a good feeling on this issue...
