2003 Honda ACCORD Power Train Problems, Complaints and Defects

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemOnly 125k miles on the car. I noticed the transmission slipping when going into/out of second gear. I took it for a drive later to see if i could replicate the problem and could not. Two days later, while getting off of the interstate and turning onto the surface streets, the transmission suddenly start jolting and downshifting even though i was pressing on the gas. It continued to do so all the way to the dealer. I could not get it to go past second gear. Was told that i need a new transmission at a cost of $4,000. Have since seen that this make and model is having all kinds of problems. There are websites addressing the problems and apparently a facebook page. I also learned after the fact that there had been a recall in 2004 related to the second gear but they patched it with some cheesy kit and apparently prayed that the s -t would hit the fan after everyone's warranty expired -- which it has. The nhtsa needs to recall these vehicles and require honda to make good on them.
