    hello
    bought an 03 accord last week
    very nice it is too
    but it seems it has some usual accord traits.!!!!
    the climate control/clock/radio station display panel
    seems to work as regularly as a tube driver. ie when it wants too
    road noise seems a bit loud....
    suspension both front and back is not good
    squeaky at the front, and very clonky at the back
    and finally about 20secs after starting the car
    one single loud beep which always makes the wife jump.....
    no idea what that is,but its funny.......
    nice car though:Smile:

    These aren't accord "traits"!

    the climate control/clock/radio station display panel. - This is likely a loose wire but you don't normally get loose wires unless someone has been fiddling around in there at some point. At worst the display is failing. It's rare but an easy removal and fix.

    road noise seems a bit loud.... - This is probably down to the tyres that are on the car. Cheap budget tyres will cause lots of road noise.

    suspension both front and back is not good. squeaky at the front, and very clonky at the back - That sounds like the car is high mileage. There no other reason for this to happen on the front or rear apart from they're worn.

    and finally about 20secs after starting the car one single loud beep. - This could be the seatbelt warning, but it's a warning alarm of some type. Read the manual and turn it off.

    It's not fair to blame the car for these faults just because it's had a hard life.
