 Description of the problemDriving family of 4 home from church, stopped at an intersection stop sign. Came off brake and onto accelerator to cross the intersection and transmission immediately and unexpectedly broke apart, leaving our car stuck in the intersection. Extremely dangerous as traffic was continuous where we were crossing. More importantly, the transmission failure was without symptoms, with maintenance kept.... The transmission was a 4 year old honda dealership replacement for another transmission which failed in may 2010. Total mileage on replacement transmission = 86k miles, with transmission fluid replaced 2 years ago by honda. In may 2010, i was driving the same 2003 honda v6 accord vehicle on the highway at night, when the transmission (@ 122k miles) slammed down from 4th gear to 1st gear slamming me forward (thankful i wear a seatbelt).... Extremely dangerous situation, near miss incident. Honda had a recall on the original 2003 accord v6 transmission, which they "fixed" with an add on kit in 2004, not a replacement of the transmission. Honda refused to pay for or contribute towards the replacement transmission in 2004 or in 2010! Honda never reported back to me what was the cause of failure to the original transmission which they took upon installation of replacement in 2010. I also owned a 2003 honda odyssey which honda recalled though that transmission and replaced by honda versus the "kit". I believe that near miss incidents are as actionable as fatalities, fires and physical injuries. I feel fortunate that my family was spared injury or death yesterday, however i am deeply concerned that these honda transmissions are time bombs and lives are constantly at risk wherever these cars and minivans are on the road. Please encourage honda motors to take 100% remedial action to protect the public from these poorly engineered and manufactured transmissions.
