    I have recently bought a ‘17 accord base trim and I got a really good deal on it. I was wondering if I could buy a steering wheel from eBay with paddle shifters and install it on my car. I understand that some of you may view paddle shifters with a cvt as being useless but I find them fun...

    My CVT makes a grinding sound when applying slight pressure to the gas at coasting speeds (7-10mph). I was wondering if this was normal or not. https://streamable.com/j30vf Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    Just trying to spread the word to anybody who has been putting off changing their CVT fluid... I just changed my CVT fluid after 46000 miles and I immediately noticed a difference in the drive performance. This was my first car with a CVT and I really didn't think much about changing the fluid...

    Less than two weeks ago I bought my first Honda: 2017 Accord Sedan Sport CVT with Honda Sensing. I've been enjoying it so far, but there's a very annoying issue I didn't notice on a test drive. The car vibrates on idling and I can see the RPM needle fluctuating. There are several YouTube videos...

    Hello all, I have a 2014 coupe l4 CVT with 43,000 miles. Today I was getting on the freeway and I shifted from D into S and clicked one of the paddles to switch into paddle shifting mode. I immediately lost some engine power (maybe half?) and the transmission wouldn't shift into another gear...

    So I took my car in to get foglights installed for a decent price (surprisingly). When signing the paper they told me that they're also fixing a recall that will be sent in the mail soon. Does anyone know what this recall is?

    I'm looking for advice in choosing between the automatic and manual. The manual costs one thousand less and I don't mind the extra work it requires to drive. My main concerns are reliability and gas mileage. I'm reading a lot of mixed reviews on CVTs overall and worried about reliability since...

    Hi everyone. Wanted to see if anyone had any feedback on Honda Accord CVT transmission. I own a 2013 Accord EX-L and around 48,000 miles the transmission began creating a ticking sound. After taking it to the Honda dealer they decided to completely replace the transmission under the...

    First off wanted to share some pictures now that I got my windows tinted. Went 35% all the way around and I think it makes the car look great. Also shown is a picture of my first dent. What a weird place right above the back seat window. Heard a noise while driving on the highway and when...

    Recently I received a letter from Honda about a software update for the EPS system on my 2013 Honda Accord LX. I have also been facing the CVT shudder once in a while on cold morning when I move slowly from a stop. The Honda dealer in Hopkins,MN wants to charge me $92 for diagnosis. My car has...

    I purchased a 2014 Accord EX-L CVT sedan in late August. Apart from the drive from the dealer and maybe one other semi-long trip, the car has been city only driving since then (North Shore of MA). I commute to one of two offices four days per week - one is 3 miles away; the other is 7.5 miles...

    Hey guys, Traded in my 09' accord for a shiny new 2014 LX. It's about 5 weeks old. Love the CVT and the MPG is amazing. So far only splash guards and OEM all weather mats. Soon to come: • Tints • LED interior light conversion :D

    I just got a brand new 2014 Accord Coupe in the EX-L trim, with the I-4 and CVT. I was surprised to see that on my first tank, we got a pretty lousy 20-23ish MPG, mostly city driving with some highway. I was on ECON mode almost the entire time and I barely floored it. (We filled her up as soon...

    Hi all, new to the forum here. I'm currently thinking about buying a new 2014 accord sedan (lx) and am really getting hung up on the transmission options. My local dealer has a 6 speed for just over 20k and a CVT for 21k. My MAIN goal here would be getting better gas mileage as I'm currently...

    I realize that there are a lot of threads concerning the CVT. I was unable to find information that's directly on point with the problems I am experiencing. I have a 2013 Accord EXL 4-cylinder with CVT. After coming to a stop or slowing down, the transmission sometimes will completely...

    Interested in buying an Accord, but concerned about CVT transmission issues that seem to be pretty common in '13 model. Does anyone have a '14? Do you have any issues with the CVT transmission or anything else? Thanks, George

    Hi Folks, I just purchased a 2013 Accord EX-L i4 sedan last Friday, and I'm having a strange issue. Whenever I am coming to a complete stop, as the vehicle goes from 20 to 0, it kicks around 10, as if it just experienced a rough downshift. Similarly, if my foot is off the brake, and I am...

    I searched the 9th gen forum for "CVT" and was surprised to find no results. Any impressions? Does it do that stupid thing where it pretends to shift to make ignorant people feel better?

    So... I'm a bit confused about this, hoping someone can help shed some light on the matter. The 2005 Accord Hybrid supposedly came with no spare tire & has a CVT instead of a 5AT. The thing is... my car has a spare in the trunk (supposedly only available on CDM models) and I can see it shift...
