16000 mi Driver door panel replaced to resolve creaking noise. Product update for CVT programming.

2014 Honda Accord 4dr Sedan

189-horsepower 2.4L I4 5-speed manual FWD

7500 mi The cover that conceals the auto-dimming rearview mirror's attachment to the windshield was loose and rattled frequently. Pushing it back into its place was only a temporary fix. Dealer replaced and installed a new plastic cover 
28000 mi On cold days, the auto transmission rushes through 1st - 3rd gears from a stop when the car is first started. The unintended acceleration is quite disconcerting, dangerous, and has made me seriouslyndoubt the transmission's reliability.

2013 Honda Accord 4dr Sedan

189-horsepower 2.4L I4 5-speed manual FWD

7700 mi Verify normal operation of variable-displacement system in cold weather. Honda techs worked with TechLine to diagnose. New V6 Accord off truck showed same behavior. Operation more pronounced in cold temps, but otherwise normal. Seatbelt/power "ON"/headlight warning chime sounded like it might fail. Again, techs checked with Honda TechLine, and found that cold weather could cause the behavior. 
10000 mi Cowl trim piece was loose and "squeaking" on interior. Found that the part is warped, and a new one is on order. Transmission seems to make a couple more "clunks" than usual. (Forgot to tell them that I heard this with the window down! ;-) ) Note made in the car's record, just in case. Clockspring/cable reel noisy when turning wheel. Tested new Accord V6, and it too made the noise, to a lesser degree. May be covered under TSB, dealer has documented it, and I'll watch the Netz for remedies to suggest. Hairline crack in bezel over center-stack multi-Information display screen. May have it rectified later--dealer documented it, and is willing to do the repair (and Honda will honor the warranty even on this). 
15000 mi

US $100
Dealer replaced cowl piece. Rattle now almost nonexistent--the whole piece makes slight movements every so often when VERRRRY cold! No longer a major issue! :-) Dealer double-checked SRS clockspring noise per TSB, but did nothing to re-route cable, but may have lubricated things a little--whatever the case, the noise is somewhat quieter. Had a tech listen to transmission while test-driving after other repairs. Nothing unusual, but I was assured that Honda's powertrain warranty of 5 years/50K miles would handle future problems. Wanted dealer to perform infotainment update per TSB--they would not, unless I show a specific problem. (This is the only area where my dealer's given me consistent pushback.) 
18000 mi Clockspring replaced per TSB for spontaneous horn activation (which my car's VIN matched, and not the TSB for noisy cable reel itself), but still noisy. Will mention it @ next oil change, but likely will just live with it. :-( Occasionally, the Adaptive Cruise Control will not engage after a vehicle start followed by immediate shift into "Drive." Techs found code related to debris blocking millimeter-wave radar sensor. Could not duplicate. 
21000 mi Honda reflashed the Electric Power Steering to prevent a no-assist condition in the event of system "fail-soft." (Torque sensor failure, angle sensor, other.) Done per letter sent from Honda. Listed as TSB. Dealer fixed loose overhead console which had "unsnapped" in the upper-right corner. (I couldn't snap it back in, and didn't want to risk breaking something, even though I have a Honda-certified trim tool!) :-) 
25000 mi Infotainment system needed reflashing to current version to correct occasional Bluetooth issues and loss of "Favorites" per TSB.rnrnDealer had been reluctant to do this until problems surfaced. 
28700 mi Horn started sounding intermittently, per TSB previously mentioned. Dealer ordered new wiring harness for steering wheel controls. 
32000 mi Horn started sounding spontaneously occasionally again. Head tech at dealer adjusted contacts on back of airbag.

31000 mi

US $225
Transmission was slow in Reverse . . . took time to even start moving backwards. Transmission fluid was Black . . . took 2 transmission flushes to get MOSTLY Clear. I Dumped the car and traded it in. 
31000 mi The Transmission fluid was completely black. Flushed twice and still black. Dumped the car. 
2000 mi Engine has a miss. Worse when cold.  
10000 mi Replaced transmission valve body. Honda Technical Service Bulletin. Hesitation, mostly when the car's warming up. Occasionally the car would not engage reverse when it was cold until pressure seemed to build in the system. Grinding noise and lack of acceleration on freeway and backing out from the new valve body. Honda instructed the dealer to drain the fluid, check for metal or debris and refill. The car still hesitates when cold and occasionally when warm. 
11000 mi Front wheel bearing, fixed grinding noise noted earlier. 
14000 mi Honda just came out with another fix, new valve body and reprogram the computer. It fixed about 80% of the hesitation.

2013 Honda Accord 4dr Sedan

185-horsepower 2.4L I4 4-speed automatic FWD

9300 mi Audio speakers would sometimes produce lots of static or no sound at all. This affected all sources when it happened and could be cleared up only by turning off the engine and restarting the car. CVT transmission would surge at times. Valve body was replaced and software updated.

7000 mi Cvt valve body replaced per TSB 13-053rn7,100 miles Drive belt snapped because water pump seized. 
14000 mi Car went in for a repair under a technical service bulletin from Honda regarding significant juddering from the CVT - this vehicle fell within the VIN range and was experiencing the issue significantly. 
23000 mi It's a CVT, and it had a low-speed judder, which I gather is pretty common. They did a software upgrade, which fixed the problem. It wasn't a big deal, really. 
27000 mi The AC belt was worn out and the CV joint was cracked. 
8000 mi Transmission had slight hesitation and shudder when cold. This has only happened 2 times in the 8,000 miles I have driven. Dealer could not find any problems. Told me to keep an eye on it and if it happened again they would look farther. 
5000 mi intermittent 4-5 sec. delay on accelerating after coming to a rolling stop. if you are trying to cross on coming traffic it can kill you. service adviser says all 2013 accords do it no fix. 
CVT fluid leaking. Originally diagnosed as torque converter seal - when repair was done, diagnosis was changed to wheel axle seal. Repair done under warranty. 
Continued transmission fluid leak. Dealer found pinhole leak in the CVT casing. Entire CVT assembly was replaced. Dealer had to provide photos to the manufacturer before replacement of CVT was authorized under warranty. Car had 210 miles.

1000 mi Had to have a loud rattle sound from the rear shelf fixed.  
15000 mi Rattle at back shelf (wasn't completely fixed the first time right after purchase). This time they fixed it. It was the GPS DVD player in the trunk that was rattling. They added padding around it.  White smoke came out of the tail pipe when starting the morning before. They found that the engine is burning oil. They have a bulletin that says they have seen this problem with the V6 engines and do not have a fix for it yet. 
33000 mi The computer had to be reprogrammed because the old program caused excessive oil consumption and fauled the plugs. Plugs were replaced.

After they replaced the transmission, the sound was still there. After the transmission replacement didn't fix the problem,took the car in again for the roaring noise coming from the rear of the car. They replaced the right rear wheel bearing, which fixed the problem.

22000 mi The seat back is so hard and uncomfortable from the active head restraint that the car was painful to drive. This is a Honda design flaw. Just because they are all like this doesn't make it right. I am now modifying the seat myself.

CEL P0420. Per Honda SM 100% CAT, wanted $1,500. Per My debug & indp shop likely 1 of the 02 (A/F) sensors and NOT the cat. Shop thought front 02 sensor, I thought rear 02. I buy OEM parts. Did front sensor first. Not it. 2 weeks later, rear 02 sensor replaced. THIS WAS IT! Shop likes to replace cat bc this sensor rusts to it, but only need new sensor. P0420 not always the CAT. Check fuel inj. temp sender, coolant temp, front A/F or 02 sensor and rear 02 (mose likely). 
180000 mi Lower drivers side seat squeaks, rattles, and moves. Isolated to lower seat hardware, broke or worn out. I ordered OEM parts (~$100), repair when I have the time. Problem the same as a TSB 02-059, but I have different type seat. 
186000 mi Rear, right, door lock actuator, was intermittent, eventually, was failing reliably. Symptom: doors appear to lock (hear clunk from locks), but OEM alarm LED/Lights dont flash = one or more doors, not locking. Lock door manually, then OK. OPS.

Dealer thinks problem caused by my HAM Radio equipment, despite, side air bag warning light lights, only if it's RAINING. Unknown if repair successful, yet.

As is common on this vintage of Honda Accord, the transmission was on its way to complete failure. Dealer replaced @ Honda's cost as part of a special extended warranty granted to all 2001 Accord owners for 93 months or 109K miles (car is 92 months old). SRS warning light indicated that the driver's seat belt buckle had a problem. Seatbelts are lifetime warranted on Honda's, so dealer replaced @ Honda's cost. Main relay was on the way to failing (causing car to intermittently not start). Common problem on many Hondas. Total repair for part ($70) and labor ($100) including tax. This is the only repair we ever had to "pay for" on the car in 92 mo/66K miles.
