problem #2

Jan 012018

Accord EX-L 2.4L 4 cyl

  • CVT transmission
  • 6,500 miles


Prominent vibration feeding back through steering wheel/column significant at speeds between 35 and 45 mph but occurring between speeds of 20 to 60 mph. Issue appears to be caused by a the Engine/CVT Transmission coordination at low idle speeds. Issue has been evaluated by dealership, Honda Techline engineers and American Honda Motors customer service. Another vehicle of the same year, engine and transmission was driven by myself with the same vibration issues at those speeds. Honda refuses to admit that there is an issue and says that this feedback through the steering wheel is a "normal" characteristic for this vehicle. This vibration is definitely a 2017 Honda Accord design flaw and there are numerous complaints to be found on the internet with the same answers from Honda that this is a so called "normal" issue and that it will not effect the drivability of this vehicle so they will not fix it. It appears that there are many Accords with this problem that Honda will not address.

This is unacceptable and I will not be a repeat customer of this manufacturer due to the unsatisfactory customer service by Honda. Thankfully, the vehicle was a lease and will be turned in at the end of the lease instead of purchasing this auto.

Accord EX-L 4 cyl

  • CVT transmission
  • 1,000 miles

steering wheel vibration

Here is my beef...I did my due diligence in searching for a car that would have limited repairs, last and have a good resale. The Honda Accord came up over and over again which fit my criteria. I test drove it, asked questions and purchased from Suburban Honda, Farmington, MI. HOWEVER...it has been back to them for service, the first trip was minor, everything fixed. The second trip, is my HUGE BEEF...took it in for A LOT of steering wheel vibration, verified that is is doing that by their technician and their serviceman...sorry, can't fix this, per Honda-- its normal operation for the car because of the CVT transmission. Furthermore, this dealership would NOT put on my invoice that they verified my complaint because it couldn't be fixed. That makes perfect sense RIGHT? I would have never bought this car with this amount of vibration. I will not give up till Honda repairs it, or it is bought back from me. Thankful, MI has lemon law.
