Transmission failure 2005 Accord

I have a Honda Accord 2005 EX Coupe 6 cyl, complete transmission failure at 43,600 miles. I am working with American Honda trying to get a "goodwill repair". I was told this isn't a problem with the 2005's?? The cost of the part is $3135.00, labor around $700. Anyone else have this problem?

    I have a similar problem with my 2005 Accord Hybrid. At 127K miles I need a vehicle speed sensor, engine motor mount and a new transmission. It's been at the dealer for nearly a month now and projected cost is $4500 plus tax.

    I was told by a representative from American Honda that they could not help me because of the mileage and that 127K miles was a respectable life of the tranny.
    What is shocking to me is that I was told this was a respectable life!!!! What happened to the "Honda RELIABILITY" that I was so fond of. I also have a '89 accord with 311k miles and no real troubles.

    There was no explanation as to why the engine mount broke ($500 part). Never been in an accident, no offroading, most miles are highway driven as I have a 100mile daily highway mile commute for work.

I have a 2006, and it's begun to give me issues but not failed yet. I found through looking in my warranty booklet that the car automatically comes with a 5 year/60,000 powertrain warranty. May pay to check your warranty manual as well. I've found with Honda that they like to charge the people that don't realize they have warranties. My battery failed last week, and through looking at that manual that it is covered for 36 months, full replacement. The service advisor tried to charge me $135. I told him it's under warranty and he checked, and found it in fact was. I get to the cashier to pick up my keys once they'd finished and he hands me a bill for $110 for the same repair, of which I told him I'm not paying since it's under warranty. He got that charge taken off. So 1 repair, 2 separate people tried to charge me for something they knew was under warranty. The point of my story is that it pays to check it out...

Unfortunately it is a problem. A lot of times it results from not changing the fluid, but even 43K miles isn't very much. Personally I would keep the pressure on AHM to help you out with the repairs.

That transaxle has long been a problem for Honda & they have NEVER really properly engineered it to be free of defects Unfortunately. I had a similar problem at around 66,000 miles with my V6 Accord EXL Coupe & at that time Honda did the right thing and repaired the transmission but made me pay for the labor (a fair yet semi-expensive) fix but reasonable. Then more recently around 152,400 miles the transmission failed again & began slipping. I had asked for Honda to do another fix of the transmission & I pay for the labor BUT they refused. I find it sad when a major company does not stand behind a product they know has had defects & issues throughout the entire product line of the V6 Accord & Odyssey (which use the same transaxle) & instead states from the warranty booklet (which I understand but think a Honda vehicle should last for several hundred thousand miles) especially when the owner followed & follows all of the recommended preventative maintenance in the service handbook from Honda...especially when the car looks like it is brand new & now it has a New Transmission too...no thanks to Honda corporate :)

Horsecrap...go to an independent transmission dealer after you call the extended warranty folks and complain!
I can count the number of Honda transmissions that go bad before 300,000 miles on one hand.
Good Luck

I wasn't happy with the response the guy gave me yesterday. He couldn't spell and didn't give me any information. I think my $19.99 was wasted. I would like a refund. I'm not about to pay more money for getting no answers.

Speedo issue


The vehicle speed sensor is failing. It is a small component bolted to the top of the transmission with two 6mm bolts. Easy to replace once you find it.
