The front and rear windows squeak over mild to severe bumps. The noise was brought to my dealers attention, they thought it was due to the rear deck and tightened and foamed the rear deck to solve the problem. This has not solved the noise problem, so on the next visit, I stressed that it may be coming from the windows. They say they might have found the problem, where the windows needed to be oiled, ie. Blade area?

Rear windshield lifts off at right rear pillar when the air of closing the driver or passenger door pushes it out of the frame. Two days later at the service appointment, the rear windshield had lifted off the entire roof line, with a height of 2 inches at the right rear pillar. Honda service dept. Said they'd never seen anything like it; the caulking had not been sufficient to keep the windshield in place. They reglued it. An acquaintance in NJ saw the same thing happen to the 2006 Honda coupe in front of him. He changed lanes fast.

Creaking and rattling from interior of car in several areas--most notable the rear. General feeling of parts falling apart or coming loose while driving. The loudest and most troublesome noise sounds like it is coming from where the rear interior shelf and rear window meet. The noise is loudest when the car is cold and happens mostly while driving over rough patches of highway, crossing road reflectors, or when the stereo is on. There is also a "creaking" noise coming from all areas of the front dash and console around the front windshield during all driving conditions. The creaking and rattling has been a problem since the first week I bought the car. I have owned several cars and these noises are not the typical interior noises you hear in a car. I have taken my car to the dealer 6 times for this problem. While the tech's agree there is definitely a problem, they don't know how to fix it. So far, the rear deck has been insulated with foam tape and the center console has been replaced. The noise is still there. On March 10, the Honda area rep also looked at my car and agreed there is a problem but was not aware of any fix for the problem. I also called Honda cust service to report the problem and while the customer service rep admitted he has heard of this complaint, he also was not aware of any fix for this problem.

: the contact stated the front driver's side tire rubs against the fender on hard turns in either direction which makes the vehicle very difficult to control. During these incidents, there are no vibrations however the vehicle does tilt to the left. A service dealer changed the suspension, but that did not correct the problem.
