Please see this below., It sounds like your transmission failed. http://www.carcomplaints.com/Honda/Accord/2005/transmission/t ransmission_failure.shtml

Thanks. I am trying to determine if I should have it fixed or not.

Don't know what else is wrong with your car,. BUT, I generally think it's best to switch cars at 12 years and based on your experience, you're right there now with or without this disaster. A new transmission is thousands, or you could try a rebuilt or exchange, but, I'd still get rid of the car pretty quickly. You're going to have to evaluate whether fixing the car is worth getting a better price.

I had a 1995 Honda Accord EX wagon for 19 years and almost 150,000 miles, no engine or transmission issues. Honda is NOT the car company it used to be.
