Hi Guys, I have had my 2.4 Accord for a few months and have covered 4500 miles and one thing really annoys me is the gearbox whine in top gear under acceleration between 45-50 MPH. This whine is generally heard on high mileage cars where the mainshaft bearing are worn or the synchro dogs are showing signs of wear. Normally this sort of noise come on badly maintained cars around 150K miles with no transmission oil changes. We all know the 8th Generation come with SIL (Shift Indicator Lamp) this tell you to shift up or down based on the engine road and road gradient if you were to follow this to the book you will hear the whine guaranteed.. For example. if you were at 45 MPH in 6th gear and under slight acceleration you will hear this whine,under deceleration you will not hear it ,drop it to 5th gear you will still hear it under the same circumstances. On my 7th Generation there is no whine at all under the same conditions and speed infact that gearbox is noiseless and refined and that covered 75k miles. Please note this is a low speed whine at motorway speeds this sound is not there and its very quite and refined as any other Accord. Can I request all 8th Generation petrol owners to test their cars under the same scenario and report back. All is not bad with the 8th Generation box I love the short shift gate as standard, the gears are longer and ratios are superb for a torquey drive and the final drive make high speed cruising a breeze and shows the 7th Generation some real speed...it this annoying whine at low speeds which ruins the quietness of the car.
