I hear you cavscout110. I also have owned a number of civics in my lifetime but this is my first Accord. I purchased my Honda Accord Touring on August 25, and I am completely in love. I am somewhat concerned however with the number of members (25 pages worth) reporting rattling noises coming from HUD. I have NOT experienced such issues but I only have 750 miles on the vehicle. Hopefully, this is an anomaly and not the norm.
