  1. Warped Rotors

    Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    Was able to get the rotors resurfaced at no cost, which is great.....I realize this is not going to solve the issue long term, but should be good for a while again before I replace the rotors and pads with aftermarket as you guys suggested Thanks for the feedback on the aftermarket centric...
  2. Warped Rotors

    Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    Has anyone experienced warped front rotors with low mileage? My wife drives the car gently and at 20k the rotors are warped to the point I need to get it addressed and repaired. I've never experiences these conditions with such little mileage before I expressed my concern at 16k to the dealer...
  3. How many v6 owners have the light throttle rumble/vibration problem ?

    The 9th Generation
    I just got my car back and Honda replaced the torque converter. The noise is gone and the car drives great. The long shop time was from the dealer working to fix the noise with various calls to the corporate tech line folks.
  4. How many v6 owners have the light throttle rumble/vibration problem ?

    The 9th Generation
    After 16 days in the shop I was informed today that I am having a new torque converted installed to fix the rumble and fluttering issue. I will repost once I have the car back finally. The noise kept getting more pronounced to the point passengers would ask me what was going on. I could...
  5. How many v6 owners have the light throttle rumble/vibration problem ?

    The 9th Generation
    We have this very bad on our car and it is currently going on the 2nd week at the dealer trying to diagnose it. Ours is more than a rumble and has gotten worse over the miles. Currently 13k on the car The whole experience to this point has been less than pleasant as the dealer claims it is...

  7. Fluttering noise around 60-65 miles/hr

    The 9th Generation
    Could the folks with the torque converters replaced already please post or email PDF files of the repair orders so that those of us needing repair can have some ammo to work with when taking out cars in for repair?
  8. Fluttering noise around 60-65 miles/hr

    The 9th Generation
    We have been experiencing this from day one as well. Really disappointing to hear that the torque converter replacement fixed the issue. What are the chances of Honda offering a 100k power train warranty in lieu of a major transmission component needing replacement in essentially a new car?
  9. EX-L v6 Oil Consumption

    The 9th Generation
    Yep, checked after I purchased the car and then again around 700 miles and the level was at the full mark.
  10. EX-L v6 Oil Consumption

    The 9th Generation
    So I checked the oil in the Accord today and w/ 1300 miles on it the dipstick is showing I need to add oil. Has anyone else experienced oil consumption like this?
  11. Accord 2013 V6 Transmission Noise

    The 9th Generation
    Ours makes it as well. I'm not too thrilled with the sound since it is kind of crunch, but I suppose for now it is normal? On a side note I had a 1988 Accord years ago with 150k on it that made almost the same noise for years when shifting from reverse to drive.
  12. Sub not putting out any Bass

    The 9th Generation
    I agree 100% this radio is awfully sad. I really hope Honda steps up and fixes it. My sub seems to be totally dead regardless of setting adjustment etc
  13. Ex-L V6 shifting

    The 9th Generation
    I recently purchased a ex-L v6 for my wife and overall we both really like the car. It tends to downshift around 20-30 mph when coming to a stop. Is this normal? I recall other Honda automatics doing this in the past, but this seems more pronounced when it drops a gear. I am getting...
