In the spring and summer I'm glued to the weather reports/hail projections... I have a garage but I still have to go to work... lol. 2 years ago I was the lucky recipient of hail damage on the 4th of July at a friends house a couple miles from home. Fortunately a whimpy tree saved the roof and I only had light dings on the hood and trunk that were easily repaired with PDR.
I'm looking to pick up an older 4WD vehicle to use in the mtns, maybe a Pilot or something. Then the Accerddd will spend most of the late spring tucked away in the garage haha; the only true hail protection.
Wow...learn something new every day. In Long Island NY I've personally only seen damaging (golf-ball-sized) hail in my area twice, and then only in very localized areas (like a square mile.)
In your case I think a better hail cover would be comprehensive coverage on your insurance policy.
I’ve been following this because I visit Colorado Springs every year in May-June. The hailstorms there are NO JOKE. I’m likely to invest in an outdoor cover for my Accord when I drive out there this year.
Some protection is better than no protection.

Weathertech mats. Check.
Block heater. Check.
Spoiler? Not happening.
Big 3? 1 or 2 maybe.
Cables are not impressive at all.
Paint protection film?
Hood and roof only?
Chrome delete? Not likely.
Blacken the mags...
We made the mistake of test driving a Tesla over the weekend and well, it's kind of amazing. I've loved the Touring 2.0 I have and has been incredibly reliable, but the driving experience of the Tesla and technology in it just is in a different league, price included lol.
I've done the...
As my 9 gen accord (2.4CVT) is totaled, I'm looking for a new car now and 2020 Accord becomes the first option.
Below are my thought after a short drive, I'd love to hear people's idea since I was only with the friend's car (10 gen, LX CVT) for 20 mins.
While the 10 gen cabin seems to be...
2018 Accord Touring 2.0. Thought it would be cool to get a Bluetooth ODB reader that would allow me to read engine parameters on the fly. So much for a good idea. Reader found a bunch of error codes, that according to Google are all potentially serious. Anyone have any experience with these...
Hello. I get a buzzing/vibrating noise when the engine reaches 1.5-2 rpms. Sounds like it’s from the passenger side behind the glove box or engine. It’ll happen when driving or when the car is in park and I rev to that rpm. Any help is appreciated, thank you.
