Wow can't believe you are having problems like that on a brand new Accord. Think its the first time on here we've seen someone report such issues. It's a good thing you are so attentive as it seems like you could've driven off the lot and caused who knows what kind of damage to the car. Keep us updated on its status, as I'm sure many other owners will be curious on what's causing the problems. And you weren't kidding about the Christmas tree..my lord.
