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!

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

The squeek on the drivers side front wheel was a loose clip on the brake....fixed
The steering wheel is now changed and much better.
The paint defect I can live with.
Love the car.
#85 of 371 Fingerprints on LCD
Jan 12, 2013 (3:50 am)
While cleaning the dashboard, I discovered three distinct fingerprint swipes on my Accord Sport's LCD. This LCD sits behind a clear plastic lens, so cleaning it is not possible. This is just another example of how Honda's quality control, at their assembly plant in Marysville, Ohio, is not up to par. Luckily it's hardly visible when the screen is on.
