When I purchased my first 4 cyl Accord, the salesperson said the luxury is under the hood. I was coming out of a BMW, which I couldn't afford anymore as my priorities had changed with 2 small boys. Well that car lasted me 12 years and the only reason it died was because my son totaled it. I immediately picked up the phone and called the same salesperson who sold me my 2004 Pilot. In 2 days we picked up our new addition to the family, a 2008 Honda Accord 4 cyl EXL, it was affordable and gorgeous. From the 1st day we drove it out of the dealer, the engine noise was horrible. While driving, there's a loud rumble in the engine and a slight whistle. There's no more room on this post. Terrible car
Honda should fix the problem instead and stop telling us that's just the way the car was engineered, or the way a 4 cyl car runs. Stop with the excuses and fix the problem so there's buyer loyalty. Problem is it would cost them too much to fix the problem.
