So I dropped off the car at dealer's for them to look at radio reception and fan noise. They came back to say they couldn't hear the fan and the radio reception was normal - given that XM is installed, it interferes with the FM/AM reception-BS!. Every car now has XM and not all have radio issues. It most likely is the antenna assembly that is inferior quality. Also, driver seat has started creaking whenever you shift your position while sitting - I am 6'4, 220lbs - but then this is a LARGE FAMILY SEDAN. I am very much convinced that Honda uses cheap quality materials for its interior to keep prices low and profits up. Its not worth buying an EX- L, a LX MIGHT'VE been worth the money.
These are not mechanical issues but hearing creaking noises, add to that loud road noise, add to that strange fan sounds - collectively do hamper the pleasures of driving a new car. it honestly feels like i'm driving a used/abused car.
Given the issues i feel Honda is not delivering the quality they promise for the money they're looting from me.
