What is the word on this lawsuit? I have a 98' v6 accord with a bad transmission, I'm the 3rd owner and the car has about 143 000 miles / 230 000 km on it. Located in Canada.

Honda didnt help me

Well, my tranny finally died at around 99000 and I gave American Honda a call to get some help with my 99. No help at all so I decided to get my rebuilt.... to bad our year didnt get covered with the 100k warranty!

Most affordable domestic cars just look cheap. Honda has made a mistake with the auto transmissions but I would still take a honda over most any domestic pile of ****. My cousin has a 2007 Accord and has had her trans slip twice at around 20 000 miles but it hasn't given her any problems since so I don't know what the deal is. I had my auto trans go out in my V6 accord at about 120 000 and put the six speed in it so even if Honda will pay for my POS auto trans I would be out of luck.

what if youre past the warranty range? i have 111k on the car, but im the second owner.

according to carfax, the car was serviced at the dealership every 3k miles. would this be enough for service record proof?

I have an '01 and my tranny went out at 87k miles. I'm at 97k right now, but I knew about an issue with the Accord trannys. I didn't know there was a lawsuit or extended warranty. Will Honda reimburse me for having my transmission rebuilt by my mechanic?

my transmission blew and i got honda to pay for 25 percent of the new one as well as the local honda dealership that charges like $65 an hour could only charge me $25 because Honda was paying for some of it. I saved a lot of money. Its well worth contacting honda.

Wow... Didn't know the Accords had so many issues.

I just bought a '99 V6 EX. Its past warranty. Its an Auto, and seems to shift slow when going D3 to D4. It also seems slow to catch when moving from stop. It won't actually move until 3k ish. I may have to give Honda a call as well.

Yeah mine (99, 86k miles) totally gave out today, and I almost got rear-ended (and honked at) by the guy behind me because it suddenly shifted down a gear or two, and decelerated SUPER fast, like hitting the brakes hard. Scared the living daylights out of me, and after that I was driving like at 20 miles per hour, with it slipping, and engaging randomly. Had to keep the RPM's lower than 3000 in case it decided ton suddenly engage and cause some unforseen behavior. I'm so mad ... And the worst part is now I have to shell out some odd $3000 to have ANOTHER shoddy replacement put in that will likely fail again. I am a pretty young guy and this is not something I will forget in my life.. I'm never again going to buy another honda, and maybe even stay away from similar Japanese cars when I end up with the money to choose.

disgusted with Honda auto transmissions

My original transmission failed at 64k & Honda replaced it for free. My 2000 Coupe has 124k miles on it now and the transmission has failed again, even with an AT oil change done 24k after the AT was replaced.

Symptoms: slams hard when shifting from Park to Reverse or from Park to drive. Slips on the 1-2 and 2-3 shift and slams hard on the downshift from either 3-1 or 2-1. It'll do this first thing in the morning when cold and it could do this when fully warmed-up after stopping for gas .... or it may not do it at all.

Tried shifting manually & it made no difference. I tried to pass a guy and the AT's downshift obviously increased the engine speed (RPM's) but increase in vehicle speed was minimal so I had to fall back into line.

Honda's response: My car has over 109k miles so I'm not covered.

My response: my car has 124k miles on it but YOUR replacement transmission only has 60k miles on it. According to YOUR maintenance schedule there is NO SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE until 90k miles because my driving habits/usage do not qualify for severe duty .... but I tried being proactive and had the AT oil changed anyway.

Honda's reply: We'll cover the first $500 of expense, after that it comes out of my pocket .... most likely about $2000.

My reply: Luckily, I bought an extended coverage policy from Warranty Direct & I'm covered for the AT repair for any amount beyond the $50 deductible. How about you take your $500 "contribution" and give me a loaner car while the repair is being done?

Honda's reply: No

I don't see how Honda can deny being complicit in all of this, they admit (by extending AT warranty period to 109k miles) their auto transmissions are flawed. They replaced one flawed transmission with another flawed transmission and yet expected a different result.

I've been driving for almost 40 years and I've never owned a car that experienced any type of transmission failure. I would venture a guess that everyone probably went to the crusher with its original transmission, including a few '80's & '90's Hondas.

Now I have a car that has had two failures & I'll think twice before I buy another Honda with an automatic transmission.

I have a 99 V6 coupe and pretty much fear this because there's just no way of telling. I'm amazed at how may different mileages there are at which point these tranny's go bad, mine has near 98k on it. I bought it used though so I have no idea of any previous replacement.

The D4 light has never blinked and the only time it jolts is if I accelerate hard up to 3rd and then let off abrubtly...then sometimes it will shift into 4th a little rough. But I blame that on the original bad build. I always feel a small jolt when I shift from P to R or P to D, which is worse when it's cold.

What mine is doing now is making 3 clicking noises after I've moved the gear lever...it sounds like it is taking longer to shift through the different gears. I plan on taking it in at 102k when I get my tranny fluid flushed to have it evaluated. Would absolutely hate to get rid of this car... but having a car worth around $6500 and having to spend at least half that for a new tranny is troubling.

My 00 V6 had 86K miles (I think)and never had any signs of gears slipping before selling it. I took good care of it though, like making complete stops before switching from reverse to drive and flushing transmission fluid. I had the mechanic go through the whole box of tranny fluids to completely flush it.

Maybe you should look into bringing your car to an independent shop and not a Honda dealer?
My 00's tranny died at 80K, the Honda dealer cheated me and put in a used (not rebuilt) transmission and that pos failed immediately. Honda corporate agreed to pay for the replacement parts, but not labor???
Since you have an unaffiliated warranty, maybe it's time to look for service alternatives?

After 10 years, it's hard to get those a$$es to do anything with these cars. I've had my tranny go out twice. At 90k and 178k. This is on a 99 accord, so no extended warranty.

When it went out at 90k, I went to the dealer (in 2005) and they told me they would give me $500 off of $4,500 (rebuilt tranny).

I feel sorry for the sucker that bought one from them. Rebuilds are under $2k for most shops!
