      sorry for my bad esl-tier shitpost. I'm Druk after work. But really, Honda transmissions are fine, as long as it's a manual. Their autos sucked for the longest time.

        if NA engine with standard then yes. Otherwise avoid it like the plague.

        90% of cars in america are automatics

          yeah and most honda autos that are still running slam into the next gear so hard it feels like you hit a speedbump at 40mph, and they don't have 3rd or 4th anymore

        And yet they were still more reliable than Mitsubishi, nissan, and isuzu automatic transmissions at the time

        Nah, even some of their manuals are dogshit, especially on diesels.

        >magically fixes slipping transmissions in your path
        I owned numerous '80s-'90s Hondamatics that slipped, and the Lucas snake oil fixed each one and even a few that my friends drove. In one case, I sold a Honda that slipped horribly before adding the oil, and not only did it fix it while I kept driving it, but the guy I sold it to drove it ~5 more years just fine.
        As a second note: Many of these years of notorious Honda autos had the solenoids mounted on the outside and would get clogged - removing them, cleaning the screen with brake cleaner and reinstalling it would also help improve flow and transmission feel.

    I have heard this and my 2001 Honda accord had a bad 4th gear. They are good cars if you buy them new or lightly used and take care of them. I liked mine a lot but bought it way to beat up. I had a brand new accord and it was awesome. I took excellent care of it and it never had a problem. Too bad it got totaled

      I never had bad gears on my 01 accord transmission, despite all the stuff I heard about it. However, it was mechanically totalled last year when the engine shot a rod. $4500 for 8 years of driving roughly 8000 miles on it yearly isn't too bad though, I miss vtec now that I'm in a first gen highlander.

    Idk where they got the reputation, throughout the 90s they had timing belts which are a fricking joke. They insisted on using them for decades and of course timing belts break and whip around in the engine bay breaking a bunch of other shit. Worse it leaves you stranded, happened to my mom's Integra. I just realized my mom casually had an Integra and my dad a Celica. No wonder I like japcrap tuners.

      Timing belts on interference engines was the dumbest shit Honda ever did. Toyota atleast had non interference engines with their timing belts so if the belt went you weren't also replacing the head

        Brother that shit is enough to brick the entire motor when pistons and valves meet in unholy matrimony

          Depends on how the belt snaps. At low speed the valves are usually bent but don't actually break off like they would if the engine was at a higher rpm

            Won't it just jump teeth long before it snaps?

            Chains can, belts can lose teeth but generally stay in time till they snap

            Chains give a lot of warning before they let go. You'll almost always get a Cam/crank position correlation fault before failure

    My 2019 accord was phenomenal until my parents bought it off me. I expect it to serve them for a long time. Totally problem free when I had it and theyve had 0 problems with it. Best part is I still get to drive it whenever I visit.

    they don't last long like toyotas. maybe some homosexual will be all pissey at the statment becuase they are mexican and drive a 94 civic. they rusted to nothing anywhere else, and paco has already replaced everything.

    i've own a few high mileage hondas. they all shit the bed at like 175k. everything starts to go bad.

    Like every car it really depends on the specific model, motor, and transmission.
    On their god cars with a K20/K24 and a manual and not being owned by an absolute moron they are reliable and will easily hit 250k+ miles all day long.
    You buy one of their worse motors, automatic, and owned by a frickwit you will hate the car and brand probably.

      Don't forget the r18 engine.
      150k miles and ten years with only regular maintenance on the poverty tier 9th gen, and the only thing I've ever had to do to it in an unscheduled manner was clear a code at 120k miles for a potentially stuck thermostat.

        On my R18 2008 civic all I've had to do was replace the thermostat, and the starter. Otherwise it's been regular maintenance. 332k miles

    Just take a look at home many old ones are on the road, anon. There's your answer right there

    >Ive heard they have transmission issues
    The CVT they make is hilariously better than every troony they made aside from the 5 speed manual.
