2020 Accord Hybrid EX-L

Honda China had a recall for loss of power due to excessive condensation in the intercooler:
Not only the condensation issue; later Chinese owners found the fuel pump being another reason. Some also speculate pre-ignition at low RPMs.
But I'd doubt the same reason here, since the recalled Accord in Chinese market all use 1.5T engine (no 2.0T available).
To replicate the problem, I'd suggest 2.0T owners try first flooring it on highway in the rain to test the condensation; then add 87/93 to test the pre-ignition.
