    98-current accords have faulty transmissions, if you're still under your 100k mile warranty honda will replace your tranny for free but otherwise they wont do anything for you. i've had mine replaced on my 99 v6 once already and it feels like its about to fail again, but im out of my warranty now. check out www.v6performance.net there's alot of info on the transmission problem and a lawsuit against honda right now

    very insightful there:rolleyes:....there is nothing wrong with the design of the engine itself, they are quite stout in fact.The trannies main design problem is that they don't stay cool enough.......so the best thing you can do to prevent failure is buy the b&m super cooler kit or buy a CL Type-S transmission and ECU (good luck)

    yeah everyone i know with a V6 honda has had tranny problems eventually. Some at like 80k , others at lik 110k (at which point youre fucked)

    if youre gettin a V6 honda, get an extended warranty. by 120k, youre almost guaranteed to neeed a new tranny
