I have the same problem - first my phone connection will say "audio not available", then my volume will freeze and my phone is muted, and sometimes I hear the static and buzzing too. The only way to stop it is to restart the car. I would be interested to hear what your dealer says, I called mine and they said they have not heard of this.

Thanks pgm17 for discovering this workaround. I'll use it.
#69 of 363 Paint defect...
Dec 25, 2012 (3:03 am)
Recently took delivery of a CVT Sport. A couple of days later, while washing it, I discovered, what seems to be, some small debris caught under the paint during the manufacturing process. Unfortunately, with how I tend to fixate on things, it's not allowing me to enjoy my new car completely. After Christmas, I will be contacting my dealer to let them know about this issue. Although I'll expect the typical dealer response, I have no intentions of repainting any part of the vehicle or letting the dealer try to "fix" the problem. Tell me what you think. Should I just let it be and try to enjoy the car?

Hopefully as time goes by you will be able to ignore this defect. Sloppy work though.

maxgts1, I notice from your previous posts you are in S Florida as well. Who did you buy and/or plan to use for service?
I used largo for sale but may use braman for service.
I would say leave it. Don't want to mess with original paint.
On our LX which I got weekend before thanksgiving we scratched up the bumper taking/putting the baby stroller into the trunk.
On a couple day old car I thought I handled it pretty well. And still haven't even put touch up paint. Sometimes have to let it go and enjoy the sweet ride you got on the sport model.

Hi pgm17. Not sure yet where I'll be getting it serviced. I took a drive by Jap Tech in Broward to get a price sheet. They've been around for quite a long time. Met the owner, who was very friendly. Mostly positive reviews. I believe they have a location in Dade too. My closest dealer would be Rick Case Honda. My only fear is the detailer at a dealer hacking up my paint job with the free wash that's included with service.

If they try to fix it, it will look worse, and make you feel really unhappy.
You could bring it here, at a nearby mall, and park it for a couple of days. If you find it in one piece, when you come back, the scratches and dings you will see on it will make you forget that little thing you have right now ...
Enjoy life !
#74 of 363 2013 Accord LX ECO function and engine sound
Dec 26, 2012 (9:43 am)
When I truned on the ECO, I did not feel any changes in the car. Where can I know the ECO is processing.
Also, when the engine is on, I feel quiet inside. However, When I stand out of the car, I hear the sound coming from the engine. It did not really quiet. Does it normal for a new car or anyone has the same feel.

I mostly notice it with how the CVT operates. Also if you have the climate control in Auto, you will notice it keeps recirculate mode on for much longer than non Econ mode. So far things I notice in Econ mode. So far not a fan of it. Prefer normal mode and when I ran one tank with it on didn't see much increase in mpg.

Thanks for your advise on the ECO. How about the noise from the engine? I feel the engine has a litte bit noise when I stand next to the car.
