 Description of the problemOn november 24, 2008 my wife was in an incident where she rear ended the suv in front of her. Auto body masters (abm), the officially recommended repair facility for miller honda in culver city, ca, is the repair facility that repaired our car. Shortly after january 1, 2009, abm informed us that the transmission was slipping badly and the warning light indicated a malfunction in the transmission. Subsequently abm took our car to miller honda to diagnose the problem. After several days, i was told the car needed a new transmission. The service advisor at miller honda told me that after the transmission was replaced, miller honda would make a determination if the accident caused the transmission to malfunction. I was also advised that the transmission would be sent to american honda for a more thorough inspection of the transmission and they actually had the ability to override the dealer decision and the decision to override could be made after the fact. Furthermore, i was advised that, if the damage was not caused by the accident it would be covered under the extended service contract we purchased. On january 22, 2009, the transmission was replaced by miller honda. I was informed that an external and internal examination of the transmission found no indication of damage as a result of the accident and thus our honda care extended service contract covered the cost of this repair. I did what research i could on the internet regarding problems with honda accord transmissions and quickly found the transmission in the 2003/2004 v6 accords has a history of failing in such a way as it is common for the car to hesitate and jerk. Adding another factor is that some 2004 accords had a recall for transmission problems. With all these issues in mind, it has become clear that the cause of my wife's accident is not as clear cut as it first appears. My wife's recollection of the incident has consistently been that.
