Rattle Box with Poor Mileage
By Glenn on
2008 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I bought this car for two reasons: 1) I've owned four Hondas previously and all were great. 2) This car looks sharp. This car rattles on the dash, passenger side, and rear deck. I brought this back to the dealer twice, but they couldn't help me. Honda of America is a big letdown on this one. I had to drive around with the glove box open to stop the squeaking since it was sitting in wrong. After the dealer couldn't fix things, I decided to fix it myself by breaking the weld on the latch, moving it then re-welding it myself. Glove box no longer squeaks but it masked about three or four other rattles from various locations. Time for me to call it quits and get a better car.
I love this car with the exception of all the vibrations, rattling, and poor mileage (avg ~22mpg). I drive mostly highway
Spend some time quieting the car. Improve gas mileage
