Maybe the issues have been addressed. I just took delivery of a 2013 ex-l. I was looking at Mercedes and BMW. After driving for a couple weeks I am left wondering why I would pay 45% more for such a car. CVT transmission is as smooth silk. Ride is really good. I keep looking at the front H logo to see if it might actually be a A. With Econo I feel reduction power. Willing to give up most of the time for an increase in MPG. Technology work pretty good. Much better than my 11 Pilot Touring. Hated the tech in that truck since I got it. Small issues with phone streaming. Could be caused by latest update to IOS though.

We have a Pilot 11 with VCM. It is noticeable. But not unbearable.

There is a CVT TSB 13-053. You can ask your Honda dealer if your VIN number is affected, and if so, have them check it out.
#335 of 371 Shattered radio LCD touchscreen
Oct 17, 2013 (8:16 pm)
I found out the bad way that the LCD radio touchscreen thing on the accord touring is rather flimsy. When too much pressure is applied it creates this not so nice spider web of cracks across the surface which has killed off the touch screen functionality.
Does anyone know how much it costs to get the screen replaced?
The voice commands still work -that is as badly as they ever did- as do the controls on the steering wheel but thinking I might miss the keyboard if I'm forced to have to use the maddening navigation system in this car again!

I would think your covered with the warranty. Sounds like to me the screen was defective not that you applied to much pressure. Make sure you tell honda you touched the screen and it cracked.

I had sunglasses in the small compartment above the head. It was rattling for a few months. Drove me nuts at low speeds; had no idea. I thought it was manufacturing issues in the front somewhere inside...
Keep that sunglass compartment empty!

Very funny ! It applies too all year models (both on my previous 2001 Accord and on my present 2012 Accord it happened).
Initially I kept arguing with my wife about that rattle for ... months. She said it was coming from the left side, I was saying it was coming from the right side. After a while we realized it was from the sunglasses box, above our heads, so from between us. That's why the rattle was coming from her left side, and also from my right side !
Actually it matters how you put the eyeglasses in that box. In one position it rattles, in the other position it doesn't !

I had that sunglass rattle too. I was just happy to fix it!
another solution is to get one of the soft case/sleeves for the glasses. Put them in that before sticking in the holder. No more rattle worries.
actually, some years back I had a pair of prescription suns in my Accord in that holder. They actually melted enough to warp slightly, so one lens never stayed in right after that.
