 Description of the problemMy car started making a grinding noise when im going into second gear and then finally on sunday 10-7-2010 i was driving on the freeway and almost got hit by an 18 wheeler because my car would not accelerate and my brakes wouldn't stop the car. I was right by an exit so i coasted off and thank god there was not a car in front of me. My car was towed from a gas station through my emergency road side assistance and delivered to the local honda dealer in ridgeland, ms. I was on my way from la to tn from an army training. The dealer called me the next morning to let me know that my transmission was heating up so bad that it was spitting out the fluid and that's was another reason my brakes locked up because of the hot transmission fluid got into my brake pads. I will have to replace the entire transmission, the dealer quoted me a price of 3880. 00 to repair my car and 300. 00 to replace the brakes. I could have been in a serious life threatening accident and almost was because of the transmission failure. I was also traveling with my 7 and 8 year old daughters. I think that honda should recall the transmission for the 2003 accord ex or at least pay to have the transmission replaced.
