Read previous posts, as this has already been discussed heavily when the new 08 Accord arrived. This will help you out. My previous 06 Accord I had did the same thing. Accord has done this for years. I never thought much of it.

I think Mitch was just being a bit sarcastic.

Well good for you sleep real well knowing your headlights are ok...oh by the way honda bought back my 2008 accord this morning because of the headlight problem..mine did flicker every 20 seconds as always stated and I won the arbitration hearing. based on a safety defect with no fix. I have to go out of town for a few days but a lot more will be posted on here over the weekend. If you think honda is your friend think again. For those of you on here that supported my efforts thanks..for the others tune in over the weekend for the real story of how honda operates. Enjoy driving those cars with "normal characteristics".

I know little things like that can really annoy people. I don't think it would bother me, to be honest. How would I even know, unless someone complained about the lights from an ongoing motorist?
I once took Honda to arbitration for a squeak near the moonroof that they couldn't get rid of. I believe they gave me a $800 credit or something like that. I moved on after I got the credit . . I guess the ratttle didn't bother me as much afterward, or I thought, that is life.
I have heard the new Accords don't rattle like the older ones used to. Is that true?

My 96 and my 06 are eerily similar in the rattle department. I have one rattle per car. (Not bad for 191k and 46k miles, respectively).
The front pass. seat squeaks/rattles over pavement that isn't glass smooth if someone's not in it, and the seat is adjusted all the way back. Put someone in it, or scoot it forward, and it goes away.
I've got a new (admittedly minor) rattle in my 06 coming from either the driver's door, or the back driver's-side door, but I haven't figured it out yet. May have something in a door pocket I don't remember.

I love my 2008 Accord Sedan EXL V6. But hate the little squeaks here and there from interior noises. The glove box droops, plastic around the auto gear shifter makes creaking sounds. I can see why maybe people spend a little more money for a Lexus, or Infinity.
#5487 of 5530 Do the 2008 have voice microchips?
May 06, 2009 (3:18 am)
This sounds absolutely crazy, but when I get in my car, I often hear a word or
phrase like "Hello" or "Are you ready?". Most of the time, the words or phrases
happen when I first open the door, but they also occur while I am driving. At first,
I thought my wife and friend were crazy, then I thought I was crazy, now many
have heard it. It sounds like it comes from right under the radio in the center.
I have everything but the navigator system and I was wondering if maybe it "talks"
and a microchip is somehow being activated. I assure you I am sane and this is
a serious question.

I recently bought a 2008 Honda Accord Coupe w/out satellite radio and had Tweeter (which is no longer in business) install a dash kit (Metra 99-7874). When the car heats up, either due to the heat on hot days or in winter due to the heater, the dash kit starts to sound junky, making a crackling sound, especially when the car goes over coarse pavement. I don't think it is the radio, but the dash kit which seems to be made of a plastic materia. Does anyone have this kind of problem and any advice on what i can do. Can't bring it back to Tweeter as it went out of business.
