Question about 2000 Honda Accord
Much of the symptoms you describe sound like a CV joint. I would take it to the dealer and insist that it be fixed... What is bothering me though is under normal operating conditions, CV joints and boots are engineered to last upwards of 150,000 miles. Some go the distance, but a lot reach the end of the road far short of their design life. According to one major aftermarket supplier of replacement axle shafts, CV joint shafts are typically being replaced at anywhere from 70,000 miles to 130,000 miles.

OK, take it to PeP Boys or Someplace that does a free inspection and have teh CV joints inspected. YES, the symptoms you posted are a result or could be the result of faulty CV Joints. When there is play in the joints you get that thunk sound when you accelerate. The reason it doesn't repeat for a bit is because you have jammed the joint. Take it back to the dealer if you like and tell them you are tired of hearing teh Thunk and gear grinding and want it fixed under warranty now or you are reporting the problem to home office to begin the Arbitrator process.
