Default 98-02 Accord Transmission problems

Hello all,

I'm currently looking at purchasing a 2000 Accord(in Canada), but have
read many comments on the web regarding problems related to transmission
failure on this model. Almost all of the comments I've read originate
from Accord owners in the USA. So I have a few questions:

1. Is the transmission failure only occuring on Accord models in the
USA?

2. Is the transmission failure occuring on any Accord models in Canada?

3. Are the Accord models that are sold in Canada coming from Japan or
the USA?

4. The warranty extension, provided by Honda America, on 2000-2002
accord transmissions. Does it also apply to Honda Canada?

5. What is it exactly that is failing in the transmission?

Thanks for any input.

at least on transmission manufactrured in the USA

I don't know

Check the Vin Nimber (J= Japan, 1=USA, 2=Canada)

Honda America only warranties cars sold in USA. Honda Canada would
have to provide warranty on Canadian sold cars.

>5. What is it exactly that is failing in the transmission?

The failure is mainly in the carrier bearings of the differential.
They fail and cause other damage in the trans.

I advise you to get the extended warranty. If you buy the Honda from a
dealership--they will sell you an extended warranty if you want it. Even
if you have trouble with the transmission--Honda will pay for it--except
for $50.oo--if you have the extended warranty.
