In the past, the Honda Accord is known for having a bad transmission. It is pretty common for people to report that the transmission on their Accord broke down and that they had to spend to fortune to get it fixed.
Well, that was true in the past, the Honda Accord we have now is no longer the Accord from the past. Honda has been working on improving the Honda Accord transmission for some time now and the transmission is no longer an issue for the newer models. However, some people are still skeptical as we keep seeing consumers asking on forums like Reddit on whether the transmission is good now.
It might take them a few more years before the consumers trust them completely but with Honda’s recent reliability scores, we don’t think it will be that hard.
The 2017 Honda Accord will be powered by 2.4-liter engine that will be offering about 189hp. The engine will be mated to a CVT and the vehicle will return about 26mpg in the city and 34mpg on the highway.
