small oil leak from CVT transmission seal to engine
By gmount on


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


I purcahased a new accord sport July 15 2013 with 3 miles on it. At my first oil change at 6500 miles, I noticed a small oil leak (1 drop) where the CVT bolts to the engine. I took it to the dealer for a warranty repair.Possible torque convert seal issue. I will post more details when the repair is finished. I am dissapointed about Honda transmission problems this early in the game. I will say the dealer was quick (no appointment) and offered a shuttle to work. If all goes well and the problem does not return all is good. sound like many people will face this same trouble. Fix it before the 30,000 miles waranty expires.

Best Features

All the USB, blutooth, and other connections for Phones. Great mileage!

Worst Features

they should have added "KeyLess entry" and "keyless Start" to this model! Also higher RMP redline (10,00RPM) with a little added horse power and torque)
Recommend (3) (10)

I noticed the same problem with my 2014 Accord CVT, also at 6500 miles. Small leak, possibly around the torque converter. Gmount, did the dealer ever fix yours? Was the repair complicated?
