WHILE DRIVING WITH AROUND 35 MPH THE VEHICLE START SHIFTING GEARS VIOLENTLY RANDOM WHICH MADE ME PULL OVER AND TURN OFF THE CAR. LUCKILY I WAS VERY CLOSE TO HOME AND I DECIDED TO START THE CAR AND DRIVE IT TO MY PARKING LOT. THE TRANSMISSION WOULD NOT SHIFT UP FROM 1ST GEAR AND I WAS GOING WITH 20 MPH FOR MORE THAN A MILE. ON THE NEXT DAY I TOW THE CAR ($130.00) TO A SHOP AND THE MECHANIC THERE TOLD ME THAT MY TRANSMISSION IS DONE AND I EITHER NEED TO REBUILT IT OR GET A NEW ONE!!!! SO FAR $200, $130+$70( DIAGNOSTICS). THE ESTIMATED PRICE FOR REBUILDING THE TRANSMISSION THAT I GOT WAS $2700.00 AFTER THE ACCIDENT I SEARCHED AND REALIZED THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM, NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BE THE ONLY ONE, BUT NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE REGARDING THAT PARTICULAR ISSUE SO FAR AND BASICALLY EVERYBODY WHO HAS 2003-2007 HONDA ACCORD IS SUFFERING FROM THE SAME PROBLEM. IT IS UNBELIEVABLE HOW NO RECALL PROCEDURE WAS INITIATED, YET! THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM WHICH CAN CAUSE THE CAR TO GET INTO AN MULTIPLE CAR ACCIDENT! I AM WRITING THIS COMPLAINT HOPING TO CHANGE SOMETHING IN THAT FOREVER POSTPONED PROBLEM! I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO ASK IS THERE IS A WAY TO GET SOME KIND OF COMPENSATION FOR THE REPAIR COST? ONE MORE TIME I REALLY HOPE SOMEONE READS THIS COMPLAINTS AND THEY ARE NOT LEFT IN THE GENERAL PILE OF PAPERWORK ON SOME FORGOTTEN DESK IN THE CORNER COVERED WITH DUST! PS: I AM E-MAILING TO THE MANUFACTURER'S HEADQUARTERS AND I AM CALLING EVERYONE WHO IS READING THIS TO DO THE SAME!
