GRAND ISLAND, NEW YORK -- As a consumer from your state, I felt it was my responsibility to bring to your attention the following incident.
In April of 2003, we purchased a brand new 2003 Honda V4 Accord. This month, December, 2005, our vehicle had 55,000 (mostly highway miles) when the transmission failed. The car is not even 2 years old! We contacted the Honda dealer and Honda headquarters. The dealer said they would rebuild one and our cost would be $1,600.00. As my husband works out of town, we needed a car so we had it fixed. Needless to say, I am most disappointed with this vehicle.
As a resolution, I would like the following:
I would like to have this matter checked into. I have never heard of a transmission failing in a vehicle LESS than 2 years old. In doing research, I found that there have been numerous problems with the V6 2003 Honda transmissions and a recall has been done. I would like to have the money I expended on the repair of this transmission returned.
Please contact me if you need more details regarding this incident.
