#277 of 374 UPDATE ON THE SOUND SYSTEM
May 24, 2013 (6:43 am)
Called the Honda Corp last month to inquiry about / stereo/ speakers/size info. Seems nobody new the answers there. After a 5 day wait and a call back here is what Honda told me about the 360 watt system.
1- It is a Alpine stereo
2- Speakers are Foster's
3= Speaker sizes are round.............. 6.6'9 in ft doors and rear deck
4- Subwoofer is 7'
Just to add to the oil change issue.
Oil changes are inexpensive why take a chance going more than 5k on your investment. I have about 500 miles on my exl V-6. When i hit 4k i will change the oil. To all the people who like to keep your cars 8 yrs or more I'd rather be safe than sorry.
Please post in forum if you changed your car speakers. Seems like the best rated speakers are all 6.9 inch which does not fit in this Accord.

I thought Honda said it had 6.9" speakers? 6 of them..1 in each door, and two in rear deck?
Are you saying that the diameter may be the same but there isn't enough speaker depth room, as installed in the Accord?

Honda speakers/ fosters are 6.6/.9 inch... almost 6.7 inch.. 2' tweeters are on top of doors.
i have not inquired w any local stereo shops yet but i am figuring the 6.9 inch speakers are to big for the Accord casings.

I bought the Optima EX with the Hyundai built 6 speed automatic. I like the Accord, but my father told me to never buy a car during it's first model year. I have 18,000 miles on it and zero problems. None.
Everyone told me not to buy a CVT. Everyone.

Changing oil by maintenance minder is being safe. No need to waste money and resources. Not the 60's anymore. Oil and engines are much improved.
162,000 miles on 2007 Accord with 8-9k changes. Engine runs like a dream ready for another couple hundred thou.
#282 of 374 Issues with Accord EX 2013 CVT
May 26, 2013 (1:02 pm)
Just wondering if any of you have this same issues with the new 2013 Honda Accord CVT - EX Model. I leased my car back in February of this year.
- rattling noise coming from either the front passenger window/door or the console which comes and goes
- tire squealing noise when backing up
- the burnt smell after parking your car
- the car seems to jerk when you slow down and take off your car from the gas pedal. it's worst when you're sitting in traffic
- steering wheel sort of turns by itself when I'm driving, thought my tires are running flat but my tire pressure icon on the dash is not ON.
Are these issues covered by Honda's maintenance package? Please let me know. It sucks to have all these issues especially when the car is brand new.

I have the V-6 EXL bought Feb,28th. I have none of your mentioned problems.
I do feel a slight jerk every know and then when trans is shifting but thats the CVT shifting.
That burnt smell is from driving and braking hard, that smell will wear off as the brakes and rotor wears. Unless you always drive fast and brake hard that smell is normal.
Check to make sure you have the right air pressure in your tires its on the drivers door.
Call the closest Honda dealer and have them check out your concerns if these problems dont go away.

Your V-6 EXL you bought on Feb, 28th does not have a CVT. It has a 6 speed auto. The slight jerk every now and then is the VCM - variable cylinder management, but it's seamless so you don't really feel it.

I don't have any of these issues with my EX-L CVT. I would check with your service department.
