Honda Complaint - Honda Transmission - Honda Transmissions
PLEASANTON, CALIFORNIA -- At 87K miles the transmission on my 2000 Honda Accord failed. My mechanic told me that there was a default with the transmission and that Honda should replace it. There was also a class action suit pending. Honda extended the warranty on the transmissions to 109K miles. After having the transmission replaced at 87K miles, the "new" or rebuilt transmission has failed again at only 127K miles! That is only 40K miles on this transmission. Honda is saying that since the 109K mileage has passed, they will not replace the transmission. The new transmission was obviously also faulty and should be under warrenty since it has only 40K miles on it.
I bought a Honda for reliability and have never been more disappointed in a company or product.
If Honda is not willing to stand by its' products, I will not buy another Honda and I will discourage anyone I can from purchasing one.
