I have a Honda Accord v6 2005 model car and maintenance done as per manuals. I am now getting jerks while accelerating or after starting and putting car in reverse gear. The check engine light turned on now. I did a code scan and getting code p0741. This is an issue with transmission power. I did some google and found that Honda had this manufacturing defect in this model and lot of car were recalled for this reason. I found NHTSA campaign id number : 11v395000 addressing similar problem and as of 23rd September 2014, 1. 5 million (1512107) vehicles has been recalled for similar issue. The Honda recall number is r89 and the recall was placed on August 27th 2011, for Honda Accords 2005-2010 for the transmission. This issue is transmission power is not working as expected and it jerks while changing gear or speed. This is dangerous from driving safety point of view. I need help by the NHTSA as I strongly feel that my case is genuine and with reference to NHTSA campaign id number : 11v395000, my vehicle should be considered for this recall by american Honda. On that note, I do hope to receive a resolution response , in a timely manner, from your executive team or someone else that is in a position to do the right thing.

Went for lunch, and parked my car on the street. After finishing lunch, about half an hour later, got into the car and proceeded to start it. Everything worked, but the car immediately shut off (radio and ac would stay on however). Tried again, but the same thing happened. Followed by a check engine light warning, and tire pressure warning. Took key out of ignition, waited a minute, before trying again. This time, turned off radio and ac. Car immediately shut off still. Tried 2-3 more times, and car finally started, all with a total of 4 warning lights. Check engine, tire pressure, power steering, and another one I cannot recall. Took it the dealer immediately, and waited 2-4hrs for them to tell me, the throttle body needs replacing. They advised it wouldn't be safe for me to drive the car home, so they gave me a free rental until it can be fixed.

I recently purchased the 2003 Honda Accord for travel. After purchasing the vehicle I noticed that the check engine light was on. The mechanic told me that there was a torque converter that needed to be replaced. After doing additional research I found that other Honda owners had this same issue. My car rumbles when driving through residential areas. When I try to enter my VIN numer in to see if my car is eligible it won't come up, but I'm definitely experiencing the transmission slipping in specific gears.

Failure Date: 12/23/2014

On 12/22/2014, my 2008 Honda Accord lx (which has 98,300 miles on it) was towed into my local Honda dealer. The reason for my having it towed into my local dealer was due to the fact that my engine failed while driving on a residential street drive two miles from my home. There was absolutely no indication whatsoever that my engine would fail as the check engine light did not go on, there was no oil light illuminated, etc. Thus I was shocked when I was driving and tried to give the car some gas and the car did not accelerate ¿ thus I rolled to the side of the road and contacted a towing company. The service representative contacted me via phone and let me know that there was no compression in cylinder 2 and that I likely needed a new engine. The initial estimate would be $6,000 for a car with a blue book value of $6,500 (dealer trade in. ) I have all service records and faithfully serviced my vehicle at the Honda dealership. The service rep also explained that I was low on oil and I reviewed my receipts to determine that I changed my oil 2600 miles earlier. I am hoping that Honda will provide goodwill to repair the vehicle as a 6 year old vehicle with 98000 miles on it should not need a new engine.

The car was checked out by three nys mechanics who all drove the car at length only to determine that nothing was wrong. One of the mechanics was from a Honda dealership.

As my vehicle was accelerating onto a highway on-ramp, I lost almost all power to my vehicle, and it became more difficult to steer. The check engine light came on, the electric power steering light came on, the traction control light came on, and my tire warning light started flashing. Was barely able to make it into the emergency lane, and probably would have been rear-ended had a car been following close behind. Once in the emergency lane, a burning odor could be smelled by all 4 passengers in the car. There was nothing wrong with my tires. Car had to be towed to dealership for repairs which are pending. This vehicle has the new "cvt" transmission, and I suspect this may be part of the problem. This should not be happening in a brand new car, this is a safety issue for sure.

The car suddenly would not accelerate and change into the 3rd gear while driving on a busy road. Had the car towed to an authorized mechanic who diagnosed the issue as transmission failure with the 3rd gear. This is the same issue that caused Honda to issue a recall for their 2003 v6 Accord in 2004. A month prior, on two separate occasions, I was driving between 40mph-45mph when all of a sudden the car would not accelerate and slowed down, while I simultaneously engaged the accelerator. During both incidences the tcs and check engine lights immediately came on. After pulling over and turning the car off and on, the lights did not remain on. This is a very dangerous car with thousands of complaints already noted for the same issue. Honda needs to recall this dangerous car.

Check engine light went on and off a few times, took it to autocheck and found a code. Took it to dealer, they could not locate the code and claimed there is no issue they can find, come back when it happens again. Few weeks later, the check engine light came again in the evening, and now with other problems, the whole electric system including lights, radio etc started dancing on and off, abs light came on and off. Happened for a few minutes and then everything went smooth. I took the car back to dealership and they claim the code p0685 was found and there was a software update for the pcm and they applied that update. I asked why was there no intimation about it and the response was that it was not considered as one of the critical updates. With the experience I had, the way things were happening in that 2-3 minutes of electric system dance, anything could have gone wrong with the car. There should be a recall notice sent for this update.

When driving the car will not shift from second to third gears. While driving, the car while suddenly downshift to a lower gear with no warning. No check engine light is on.

Failure Date: 08/27/2012

Car suddenly shuts off on its own while driving; all electrical goes off except for check engine light, abs light, or none at all. Happened 3 or 4 times, sometimes at freeway speed, car restarted from neutral a few minutes later. Taken to Honda dealer & diagnosed with a faulty transmission module, replaced for $450. Yet the problem just recurred not long after that repair. This creates a serious road hazard & potential for crash & serious injury, as suddenly & without warning, the vehicle shuts down & cannot be controlled with any acceleration, power steering or normal braking. This vehicle has always been maintained meticulously, since new, per recommended schedule with Honda dealerships. Browsing the internet shows this to be an unusually common, serious & difficult to diagnose issue with Hondas & acuras from ~1997-2002.

I bought this car brand new in 2001 from a Honda dealership. A couple of years later, the transmission had failed. I called the Honda dealership where I had bought the car and they acknowledged that this generation had a known transmission defect. They repaired my car for free because it was still under warranty at the time and I was told that the transmission now had an extended 7year/109,000mile warranty. On July 15th, 2012, I was driving on highway 101s at 65mph when the check engine light suddenly came on. I noticed a slight loss in power, but my car did not die out. The check engine light stayed on. The next day, I decided to test drive the car again to see if the check engine light was a one time occurrence. I started up the car, put it in reverse, and then to drive. There was a sudden delayed jerk from reverse to drive. I managed to plug in a code reader into the car's computer port and pulled up two codes: p0700 and p0740. Both of these codes are associated with the transmission. Not again?!?! my car has now exceeded the extended warranty and I am afraid that Honda will not cover the repairs. I read on several forums that this has also occurred to Honda owners where the dealership has refused to repair the vehicle due to the expired extended warranty coverage.

My car has been turning on my check engine light . My vtec seems to be staying on and it jerks my car back and kicks the light back on. I've been reading online and I'm not the only one with this problem. A lot of people say its the vtec oil pressure. I change my oil on a regular basis and don't think that this vehicle should be having this problem. It lacks power between 1-3000rpm and its not safe.
