honda, Accord 2000 Complaint - HONDA ACCORD, BAD TRANSMISSIONS

Review by ZEE on 2004-07-13
NEW YORK -- WHEN I WOULD STEP ON THE ACCELERATOR, NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN, THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THE VEHICLE ACCELERATED OUT OF CONTROL. AFTER TAKING THE AUTO TO THE DEALER A NUMBER OF TIMES, THE TRANSMISSION WAS REPLACED , BUT IT DID NOT RESOLVE THE PROBLEM. AFTER ANOTHER VISIT TO THE DEALER,I WAS TOLD THEY COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG WITH THE VEHICLE, SINCE THE PROBLEM COULD NOT BE DUPLICATED. I WAS ADVISED, TO KEEP A RECORD OF THE MISHAPS AND PRESENT IT TO THE STATES ATTORNEY'S OFFICE. AFTER THE PAPER WORK WAS IN , MY HUSBAND WAS DRIVING THE VEHICLE, AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN, MY HUSBAND WAS IN AN AUTO COLLISION GOING NO MORE THEN 35MILES NO AIRBAGS. HE WAS KILLED FROM HIS INJURY.THERE IS A RECALL ON THIS TRANSMISSION.

This is one case that I would recommend getting a lawyer! Sorry for your loss!

First let me say that I am sorry for your loss. Have you contacted the NHTSA (National Highway Transportation & Safety Administration)? There is nothing they can do about your plight but the information you provide may help others. Again please accept our deepest sympathies for your loss.

Oh my gosh! My condolences! I hope there's something you can do...definitely consult with an attorney immediately. A lot of attorneys will meet for an initial meeting free or for a reduced rate. Find out what can be done and don't throw away ANY paperwork from when you took the car in to be looked at...

Obviously you need to complain about the dealer instead of the car itself.
I have owned Hondas along with a few of my family members. I have absolutly nothing negative to say about them.
They have been the most reliable cars I have ever owned. But you have to get them from a Honda dealer. Not some "buy her pay here" dealer.
