2013 Honda Accord Sport 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


For the most part I'm pleased.
But the dash noise, rattles and speaks are getting to me.
When I first start to drive the car after it's been sitting in the heat the center dash snaps, crackles and pops.
Sometimes on rough highways there is a rattle/buzzing noise from the center dash in front of the audio display. If I place my hand on this flat part of the dash the noise stops.
I had a friend video this noise just in case the dealer can't reproduce the noise.
I don't know if the video will help.

I have a 2013 Accord with the same problem. The rattling is incessant and turns an otherwise joy of a drive into a chore. I've taken to the dealership twice and it's still not fixed. This is my first and last Honda purchase. I always heard about their great quality and consistency, but this can't be what people were talking about.

Hi barsky. I have a 2013 Accord with the same problem. I reproduced it for the dealer and they told me it's normal for Accords, which doesn't seem right. I took video as well. Were you able to get your issue resolved?
