jerky movements needing transmission flush , replacement of leaky pipes...worked for few days, but issue not resolved. Honda dealer wants big $$$ to replace transmission , more than street value of car. This car is one owner maintained by honda dealer from day of purchase, so much for the accord reputation of reliability, cant even get to 100K miles. Have driven car very little, 5-6K per year. Also its a garage parked car, but roof color has faded with rust settling in. Big Disappointment.
