Ask Smithy Xtra Transmission failed 3 times
There is something seriously wrong with the car for the transmission to fail three times in 175,000 km, that’s not normal. Could it have been crashed before you bought it? I would start by checking it to make sure the chassis is square and not out of alignment.
WE CONTACTED Honda specialist Adam Kovaric of In-N-Out Motors and he is unaware of transmission failure. The only problem he's aware of was a recall relating to the reverse shift fork, which should have been brought to the owner's attention. Adam says the Accord is an excellent car. I think your parents have been shabbily treated and should go elsewhere. Adam believes your car should be worth $13,000-$14,000 as a trade-in.
