Bought 2003 Honda Accord ex 4 cylinder with 82,000 miles three week later violate shaking of car when in drive and reverse under 1500 rpms, had at dealership for two days can not find problem

Do you drive a 2003 HONDA ACCORD?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
