I am happy that the manual owners seem not to have issues. As a repeat Honda owner, that makes me feel good about Honda's Accord lineup for 2013. No one wants to buy a brand new car and have some of the things that I have been reading happen to them.

kkuhns, thank you for starting this thread, by the way. You have been a big help to all of us. I just hope my dealer's Honda repair shop will be as diligent and conscientious as your dealer was.

Hey, trusso69, I don't know. Good question, but at least the dealership didn't just send me home without at least looking at something on the car like they did to me recently. I did check the ECO button after reading a post from a while back. Mine was turned off.

If you press the econ button with the A/C at coldest temp/highest fan speed. You can definitely tell a difference in the A/C. Also, from a dead stop a hard acceleration will be quite a bit different in econ mode.

Yes, thanks for posting that. You mentioned before that there should be a TSB number, but I looked at my dealer receipt and they didn't include the TSB info anywhere. I never got around to calling them to ask for details.
I'm happy to report that the fix they applied (presumably this TSB you referenced) on my 2013 Accord LX has worked and I have not noticed the stuttering any more. So I think it is safe to proceed with purchases on this car.
And FWIW, I am happy with the MPG too. My overall MPG, from November 2012 through today, is 30 MPG, which is pretty good for winter driving. In good weather, I regularly get 36 MPG on the highway driving 70-75 MPH.

I have 5052 miles on my EX and I have not noticed any issues with the CVT. I would not hesitate to purchase this car. Enjoy your Accord, I know I love mine.

Problem #2 is not a problem, It is how Pandora works. Everyone has to turn off Pandora on their cell. Just cutting the Bluetooth off does not kill off the app.
I am specifically talking about Samsung Galaxy Android phones.
