Default 2003 Accord V6 EX coupe transmission problem

Hello,

I have a 2003 V6 EX Coupe with 36,600 miles and the transmission
occasionaly slips when trying to shift from 1st to 2nd gear. I have
only owned the car for a month and it has happened to me three times
already. The problem seems to occur within a minute of driving the car
from warm start,
where the RPM would rise when I apply gas and the car wouldn't go
forward. When this happens I would shift the transmission into neutral
and back to D a couple of times. The first two times I tried it the car

will engage and drive forward, but the last time it happened the car
struggled to go forward for like 5 seconds before engaging.

Has anyone else experienced this same problem? I found that there is a
recall for this year's transmission and they have already performed the
recall service. I haven't been able to duplicate the problem, it just
happens randomly. What should I do besides bringing the car to the
dealer for service?

thanks!

Take it in ASAP, before warranty expires.

If you are in the US, go to Honda Owners Link
https://www.ahm-ownerlink.com/login.asp?brand=honda
Give them your VIN number and they will tell you about recalls and
extended warrantees for your car.

Honda extended the warrantee on some Accord Auto Tranies to 70K miles
and 7 years.
There is no charge to be a member.

I continue to hear about problems with Accord V6 automatics. Does anyone
know if they have sorted out the problems with the 06 V6 and the 06 I4s.

You may want to visit the local Honda dealership and ask them if there
have been any recalls or "service bulletins" related to the 2003 V6 EX
Coupe. You might try to find out at this web site:

Does anyone else know about other related websites?

Bring it in again. I understand there is a fix that they attempt first that
does not require tranny replacement. If that does not work, they then
replace the transmission.

Thanks everyone for your input. I am so glad that I purchased the 7
yr/100k miles extended warranty when I bought this car and I don't have
to worry about paying out of pocket for this.

I will bring the car in the dealership for service and see what kind of
remedy they come up with.

thanks again for all your help!

Jerry
