2000 Honda Accord: a recall and extended warranty offered..faulty…

I have a 2000 Honda...
I have a 2000 Honda Accord, which had a new transmission replaced in 2007 because of a "recall' and extended warranty offered by Honda. However, I recently learned that I now need a new transaction again. I believe the replacement was faulty or Honda just doesn't really manufacture good quality transmission. By the way, my car only has 50,000 miles, so at the time of replacement I probably had 35,000 (averaging 5,000 a year). Is it plausible that a transmission should only last for 15,000 miles.

I am so ready to call the media, to report the problem.

I have not personally contacted corporate yet, but the Honda dealership where I get my car service did that and was unsuccessfuly. So my next step was to write them a letter myself, because I can't understand why this is happening after only 15,000 +/- miles and I take excellent care of my car. I have a 1990 Toyota with 90,000 miles and never had the transmission replaced----- go figure. I truly believe that the replacement 3 years ago was faulty and how despicable that the warranty on that one ran out in January, nowhere near the 36,000 miles. I just can't believe they won't do something.

OK all you need to do is contact Honda corperate 1-800-999-1009 tell then the situation and how disappointed you are and they will work with you one way or the other trust me they will.So call them next there in California so they are still open now.

Hoped this helped.

Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.

Is there any technical type stuff I should say about the fact that I have only driven 50 miles or even 15,000 since their replacement.

Because I really can't imagine a new transmission only lasting for 15,000 miles.

Just let them know you know the there are numerous issues with the clutches failing not holding pressure internally which has happend again .

Hoped this helped.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
