  2. Problems & Solutions
    My 2008 Honda Accord V6 surges at highway cruising or 24,000 RPMs (73-75MPH). This also happens also at or around 40MPH. The "surging" is noticeable while driving and the RPM gauge shows maybe a 100 PRM change. The speed does not change as all. This also happens when using Cruise Control...

    My wife's 2008 Honda Accord EX-L stopped diverting the air conditioning to the front panel or down at the feet. No matter the setting, the air blows out of the defrost vents onto the windshield. I figure that it's either a bad motor or a blown fuse. The fuse would be an easy check if I could...

    I bought a 2008 Honda Accord EX w/ 110k miles, the vehicle runs perfect and shifts perfect. However, when I reverse and also when going from a stop and go in the mornings I can hear a high pitch maybe squeal or whine sound. Its hella annoying and have heard this before on other Hondas. Does...
  7. Problems & Solutions
    I purchased a 2008 Honda Accord w/ 108k on it. The car is perfect in every way except for one. When I accelerate from a stop of slow speed the auto-lock operation engages as it does in most late model vehicles. The only problem is it does it EVERY TIME I DO THIS. regardless if the locks are...

    Hi guys, did a search, but couldn't find anything on this subject on the 8th gen; or maybe it's just that I don't know how to search, being a noob to online forums. Anyone change their spark plugs yet? To platinum tipped (Splitfires, Zex, or other) Do you think it'll yield gains? Thanks in...

    I just bought a 2008 Accord Coupe 2.4 EX-L. The window sticker lists Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) as one of the features. I read the owners manual and saw nothing about ANC. How does it work? It doesn't seem particularly quiet in my car. Do I have to turn it on and off? The only thing I've...

    Hi All, I have 2008 EXL 4 cylinder. Whenever I move the headlight switch to OFF position, the headlights are still slightly on. But the intensity is too low. Initially it went unnoticed but now i got it. Is that a normal behaviour? Abhijeet
