#74 of 369 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.

Yes, I meant to reply about that. The engine seems to have a little more noise when it idles and you stand around the car. It sounds like a ticking noise. More than my 09 Accord 4 cylinder at least. I just assumed it was how the direct injection worked. It is much quieter during driving than my 09 so I was ok with it.

You mean the engine noise is normal becuase I just confuse with it. Thank you so much for your professional advise; it sounds good.

To me it sounds normal. Maybe others can chime in.
Thanks, but I am far from a professional!
#80 of 369 Break-in period?
Dec 27, 2012 (4:14 am)
My CVT Sport also has the 'ticking' engine sound at idle. But it's very quiet under normal driving. What I haven't done yet is accelerate hard to redline in Sport mode with the paddles. I've only got 100 miles on the engine. I'm wondering how it'll sound then. How many miles should I put on the engine before I can start doing hard accelerations?

Manual says to avoid that for about 600 miles and take it easy on the brakes for 200.

Similar defect on my 2013 - ex-l , except the "dirt: is under the rear passenger window. I was pretty upset to.
Dealer said they would repaint the area and blend in. however they advised not to mess with the factory paint......I can ignore this.......your defect is in a more inconspicuous place, 100% leave it and try to ignore it Just wait until someone dings your door in a parking lot! Happened to me already....arrrrrhhhh
