2011 Honda Accord Question: is engine whine normal



Visitor, 2.4L 4 Cylinder, Portland, OR, May 10, 2011, 16:58

I have a pronounced engine whine, most pronounced at about 12 MPH. I,m told it is the PS pump and is normal. There also is a bit of engine vibration at all speeds. I,m not picky, I just came out of a 08 Civic which was perfect!

    My 2010 Accord makes a very similar whine which I've kind of become accustomed to...except that it drives me absolutely nuts sometimes. I checked into it when the car was brand new, but now I've just kind of learned to ignore it.

    However, as always - see your dealership to have it checked out, as you do have factory warranty on your side.

    Good luck -
