Honda Complaint - 2003 Accord Transmission failure
I drive a 2003 Honda Accord V6. It has 92000 miles. The transmission started slipping out of gear on the freeway as I hit the gas doing about 60 mph and when it went back into gear it went to 2nd gear causing severe braking and nearly caused an accident. Later in the evening it got progressively worse. I took it to Honda and they determined it needed a new transmission which would cost $4000. They did offer a discount of $1000. I went onto www.carcomplaints.com and noticed this is a major issue with this car. Honda did do a recall to add an oil jet to the 2nd gear but it apparently didn't work. I don't understand why they don't recall them altogether and replace the transmission completely with ones that won't fail so soon.
So right now I am stuck because I can't afford $3000 for this and don't really know what to do.
