#292 of 369 HDD access error
Jun 12, 2013 (7:08 am)
Using the navigation, I set a destination. The nav system began calculating the route and then a screen was displayed "HDD access error". The nav system then rebooted. This has now happened several times.
I'm taking my car in next week to have the navigation system software update installed. My Honda dealer can not verify the update will fix this specific problem. I asked them to order a hard disk drive (HDD) as plan-B. Honda does not have this part available yet. No availability date announced.
I live in Canada. Car is 2013 Accord EX-L 4-cyl. One month old.

My issue is a little different, although I do feel the studdering feeling you're talking about, there's a more serious issue with my car that I feel is a serious safety issue.
It only happens from a cold start. When you first crank and put the car in Drive or Reverse the transmission doesn't engage, I have a video of where I caught it doing this. The RPM's shoot up but the MPH just sit at 0...
#294 of 369 Some problems with my 2013 accord
Jun 18, 2013 (5:17 pm)
I've been driving a 2013 accord lx for 6 months. I like it a lot but here are some problems that I'm facing. I would like to know if others are also experiencing the same problems.
1. I hear a noise somewhere from the front. I don't know how to explain the exact sound. Like a friction noise. It occurs when I take my foot off the break pedal and apply the gas pedal after a brief stop to take a turn. It happens frequently in my office parking lot.
2. The acceleration is jerky when both the econ button and air conditioner is on. Also the vehicle jerks a little bit when the breaks are applied lightly to stop the car at a signal.
3. When it rains hard the wiper on the driver side is drawing water towards the right side upon returning to base thereby obstructing visibility to some extent.

Do you hear wind noise coming from the driver side window at 60mph plus ?

I had some used Affinities on my Dodge Caliber for a short time, till I sold the Caliber. I liked them very much, as they were quieter than my original smaller wheeled Dunlops SP50's. Initially tho, some Caliber people had troubles with their original equipment Affinities on their Calibers, & I was very glad for my original Dunlops, which gave excellent mpg & good traction, both in rain & in snow.

Know what you mean by the smell of Chinese rubber. Have had many rubber-coated binoculars. But one pair of Chinese Barska rubber-coated binos had a repugnant stink that finally went away.

My 2013 is doing the same thing. I tend to immediately put it in gear and go to take off. That is when it happens to me. When I give the car ten to twenty seconds it doesn't seem to happen.
Can you please let me know if the dealer informs you of a problem.

I have the same issue on my Honda Accord Type S 2.4 liter V-tec engine. Got it in April 2012, I live in Europe so it is the European model like on this link but without the ugly wing at the back http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8VecdBKy6g
I have been complaining with the official Honda dealer since I got the car as I hate the feeling of jerking engine at half-full acceleration, somewhere between 2000 and 5000 rpm. On full gas it doesn't happen. And even though they acknowledge the jerking they will not confess that it is something wrong, but a "normal" behaviour of the V-tec engine and a lot of bs. They are forthcoming though in terms of trying to help so they arranged so I could test the same car from another owner and it was the same thing there. Now thery are offering me some great discounts on their other models like Civic, but also other brands in their portfolio like the BMW, so I will most likely switch to BMW although I would have preffered to have a normal working Accord. Of course I will probably end up loosing money on the switch. But I'm really surprised that Honda could allow themselves such a big engine flaw and then to play stupid instead of fixing it, I'm amazed by it, and utterly dissapointed by a brand that I loved.
And it is manual transmission so nothing to do with CVT or whatever, doesn't happen when switching gears but during acceleration in any given gear.
Second issue is the enormous difference in engine power once I turn on the AC. This was the case in my previous model as well from 2007, but thought that they for sure must have fixed it in the new model but I was wrong. So when I turn on the AC I feel like driving a car of 100hp instead of 201hp, engine is roaring but nothing is happening. So when I need to overtake cars quickly on regular roads (not on highways), then I first turn off the AC and then start overtaking....unbelievable but true.
#300 of 369 New car alarm

If your going to alarm your new accord coup buy either the Viper 5901 or Python 991 alarm system they are the 2 best alarms you could buy for the money.
