Hello

I got a Honda Accord 2014 Lx last year and it has serious rattling issues. Based on the video, the noise seemed to come from the passenger side of dashboard.


So I had put a cushion over there and the rattling stopped. I made my fourth trip to dealership and told this had been the issue. He did testing on the car for 6 hours and finally put tape inside and said the issue is fixed. It went okay for a week and now the now it makes noise like an old car.

I am tired of making trips to dealership. He tells me car is all nuts and bolts and hot weather affects it adversely. I am originally from a country where temperature reaches 115 F and roads are much bumpier than US roads. Still car especially Honda Accord and other Honda variants don't make noise there.

Should i write this concern directly to Honda?

Thanks for the help
Edit: It is covered under warranty. I have driven it only 4000 miles, it's a new car.

You didn't say if this is covered by warranty. If so, and if there's another dealer in your area, try them. If not, seek out a really trusted tech at an independent shop.

Check out TSB 14-067 - has to do with the rattling you may hear. I can't see the YouTube video at work, but, maybe look in to it? Apparently the bolts on the struts loosen up. Might not be it exactly, but, yeah...

He replaced that in first 2 visits. What he did this time (putting tape) was done in recent 2 visits.
