2004 Honda Accord EX 3.0 V6 from North America
Good car with a bad transmission
The transmission at 107000 miles.
The compliance bushings at 80000 miles for lower control arms.
The engine mounts at 90000 miles.
Air intake hose keeps cracking every 2 years.
Perhaps I am expecting too much from a transmission, but my 95 Accord that I bought with 100000 miles 9 years ago was still going strong with the first automatic transmission with 234000 miles. I would still drive it if it wouldn't have been stolen 2 weeks ago.
I only have a problem that Honda knows about; the transmission issues with the V6 model, but when I mentioned to the dealership at 80000 miles since, that I had noticed some hiccups with the tranny, they said that everything is fine and that their recall fixed the lubrication issues of the tranny. Yes, it helped just enough to make it beyond their extended transmission warranty, so that they didn't have to pay for anything.
The cost to have it rebuilt at an independent transmission shop was $3000. Honda would have charged $4500.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
