This fault could result in gear failure, which can cause the transmission to lock up. If the transmission were to lock up with the vehicle in motion, a crash could result. If the inspection reveals internal transmission damage, the transmission will be replaced. If no internal damaged is noted, the transmission oil cooler return line will be revised in order to increase fluid flow.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Honda has recalled 1998-1999 Accord and Acura CL, and 1999 Odyssey and Acura TL vehicles because the ignition cylinder body may be worn, which can cause the shift interlock not to function properly. If the vehicle does not securely lock in "Park" due to a worn ignition cylinder, the vehicle may roll, which can cause a safety issue. Dealers will inspect the cylinder body for wear and replace the cylinder body, collar, and latch plate if necessary. If there are no signs of wear and all is operating as designed, dealers will replace the latch plate.

This is my first Honda Accord and I have had great experience with it. I have over 130,000 miles and have not had to replace much expect for general wear and tear. Like other reviews I did have premature wearing of the brakes which were repaired by a honda dealership who did a horrible job. I later had them repaired by a local auto repair shop, and they did fabulous work. My ac does run a little slow, and could be better but overall I am very pleased by the reliability of this car, and plan to purchase another honda accord.
