The "Surprising" Loud Honda Accord

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


2013 Accord Sport that developed a loud rattle from 20-30 MPH in the drivers left hand dash. I took it to the shop and they attempted to fix it. They realized that the car had two cabin temperature sensors installed (supposed to only have one) and both were malfunctioning. So it took two repair visits to rectify this issue. I am now sitting in the service shop where they need to tear off my entire dash to fix a loud rattle in the center dash that they expect will take two days to fix. So I have been in the shop 3 times in the past 7 weeks of owning this car and it still is really loud. I really thought that Honda was pushing the quietness of the car but they completely missed the mar

Best Features

I really like the in dash screen and the interior improvements to the car.

Worst Features

I am really disappointed that the car has had so many rattle issues and has been in the shop three times since I bought it. I think the claim of having a quiet car is a misrepresentation of the actual acoustic performance of the cabin. They may have mitigated the highway buzz of the wheels but completely missed the mark in the insulation between surfaces that contact in normal driving conditions.
