Default warranty info about trans. for a 98 accord

Does anybody know about the warranty on the transmission on the 98
accord? Someone recently told me Honda extended the warranty due to
excessive problems people were experiencing.

Join the owners link at the Honda website. It will tell you if any warranty
extensions or recalls apply to your specific car.

Is owner link for American Honda's only?I attempted to register and was told
I had an invalid VIN.
I triple checked my numbers,but still to no avail.Maybe it is because I
bought it second hand?
I checked Honda.ca and there is no link there.

For Canada, you should contact your dealer or Honda Canada.

actually tried that one day.I had asked the dealer if they could tell me if
the timing belt had been replaced .I assumed that if it was done by a
dealer,they would be able to tell me.They told me only if it was done by
them.I believe she was incorrect about this.I still need to find that out.I
heard that some mechanics write something,perhaps the date,in chalk or
something,to let another person or mechanic when it was changed last.

Your original post was about warranty information which a Honda or Acura
dealer can provide, no matter where the car was bought. Honda, Mazda and
Toyata dealers (I haven't contacted others) don't provide info about normal
maintenance performed at other dealers and that info might not be available
to them. However they can tell you when and at what mileage warranty service
was performed, but not necessarily what was done.

98 Accords do not have an extension. Here is a copy of letter AHM sent to
owners of affected years.
August 2003

Automatic Transmission Warranty Extension

Dear Accord, Odyssey, and Prelude Owners:

American Honda is announcing a warranty extension for the automatic
transmission on all 1999-01 Odysseys, 2000-01 Accords, and 2000-01 Preludes.
The automatic transmission and torque converter are now covered for a total
of 7 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the date of
original sale. We are providing the warranty extension because a higher than
normal number of automatic transmissions in certain vehicles may have
problems due to defects in material or workmanship beyond the 3-year,
36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty.

Good luck!

Howard

The letter is true, but saying that, you still might be able to get
something from Honda. I have a '99 V6 Accord and had tranny problems. I
had the Honda service manager drive my car and he immediately told me that
my transmission was bad. Honda paid for my hardware (all new transmission)
but I had to pay for the labor (~$570). This all occurred at ~68k miles in
May '03.

Being a '98, I wouldn't press Honda too hard as they really don't owe you
anything, but worth asking.

Thank you all for the help! The problem was a malfunctioning torque
converter. After being quoated $2400 for a junkyard transmission or
$3100 for a Honda rebuild. After complaining to the service mgr. that
we have owned several Hondas with mileage on some passing 200k that we
feel wrong paying $2400 on a repair on a vehicle that is only worth
$7000 at best, he called Honda and is willing to replace the
transmission for labor only ($500). They also threw in a loaner car
while the repair is being done.
