A steady growling/humming noise is now present @ 30 MPH and above from the rear. The rear wheel bearings are the issue. I first noticed a scallop of the right rear tire and what felt like a holding back upon acceleration. Finally the loud growling noise soon followed. I changed both rear sets and have reported this to NHTSA before someone ejects a rear wheel assembly at highway speeds.
Noise began 3 days ago - noticed when I started up a hill going out of subdivision. Low, droning noise, with some resistance and lag in acceleration. The noise isn't always present, but it appears when RPMs increase. Even my husband heard it yesterday and he's hard of hearing! I took it to my local Honda dealer today- where the car was purchased in 2010. They called to say that they couldn't replicate the noise, and could find nothing wrong. I'm glad they say nothing is needed, but I KNOW that the noise is real, and was even worse this morning.
My problem started at about 90000 miles. It is a roaring sound. We have rotated the tires and checked the bearings and still can't figure out what the sound is.
Will be talking to my local Honda dealer to see if they can diagnose the problem.
When reaching approx. 30 mph a "roaring" sound started coming from the rear of the car. Turned out to be a bad right rear hub/bearing unit - which was covered under 60k mile warranty. There is a TSB 10-028 that has been issued.
I hear noise come out from the rear driver side. I check and replace wheel bearing.and still make noise at 30 mph
I heard a hamming noise coming to the right rear wheel , I when to the dealership to have it fix under guarantee , they told me if the problem will notice they will cover , after the test drive with a mechanic , he said cant duplicate a noise , they did some wheel rolling test but they cant duplicate a noise , of course the two wheel in the front is not a issues , the sound is on the back , can hear more loud on the right rear, my guarantee will expires next month , so disappointed
I just purchased used 2013 accord with 42000 miles and 2 days later heard possible bearing noise in rear. So I pulled both tires and took brake
Caliper loose and sure thing when I spun right hub it was definitely bad and left side is not quite as bad but I'm going to change both I assume the drive train warranty doesn't cover this and basic warranty was up at 36000 miles . Ohh well it's a Honda and I still have faith. Also I notice there is multiple manufacturers of this bearing so choose wisely. D.Mc.
My rear drivers side tire squeals only sometimes between 40-60 mph and the wheel gets really hot and smells like something is hot. Honda Dealership wants a 100 $ diagnostic fee to diagnose the problem. I have a CV joint clunking in the passenger side front tire since day 1, I have paid the diagnostic fee to have the problem looked at, although they are unable to duplicate the noise. I honestly have a problem throwing 100 $ bills at the Honda dealership when the problems are very noticeable and the car is still under warranty. I have never heard of anything like this before, charging customers diagnostic fee's while the car is still under warranty. If they find the problem then the diagnostic fee will go towards the repair of the car... I just cannot understand how this is legal while still under the 3 year 36,000 mile warranty. My problems are minor but still very costly and I hate the fact I either repair the car myself or I drive it until the bearing stops and Honda will then tow it to the dealership and make the repairs. Very disgusting!! I think it is still wrong and very ignorant customers are not being told they have diagnostic fee's while still under warranty.
When at sppeds above 30-35 roaring heard from back of vehicle
When i drive start hearing a noise like buzzing in the driven side
Growling noise at low speed and gets worse with increase in speed. I was told that one of my tires were cupping. Replaced all four tires with Michelin Latitudes and the car still exhibited the same problem. Other similar complaints on this page point out rear hub bearings needing replacing.
I noticed at 50k miles a squeak occasionally, tires always roared so I didn't pay that any attention, took in for routine tire rotation, both back wheel bearings bad
when rear windows left or right are down i hear an aweful roaring sound while driving at thirty mph.
The sound comes on and off randomly and becomes really loud sometimes recently (currently 12000mile) 1.5 year old.
Description matches many others here. Assuming it is a bad rear wheel bearing.
Humming noise in rear. Pitch of noise varied with vehicle speed but not engine RPM. Plan on replacing right rear wheel bearing and hub unit.
I was having a loud sound from rear while driving . I took my car to shop and was told my hub was bad so bad that I needed to get it fix the same day to prevent an accident. They stated the wheel would just freeze up while driving. I had it fixed the same day for 650$
I started to notice a loud humming sound while sitting in the back of my car with my infant. My husband and father in law noticed it too and we were trying to figure out what exactly what it is. I will be contacting my local Honda dealership.
Just replaced the drivers side rear bearing due to excessive growling!! Once I got the hub off and tried to turn the hub you could feel how rough the bearings were. The new one was obviously a lot smoother.
Took it for a drive and knocked half my noise down. Passenger side tomorrow.
Too bad Honda had a bad vendor. My opinion of their quality is dimenished.
Also had to replace the passenger side front strut at 13,000 miles. To quite the car I have around 100 pounds on Dynamat throughout the car.
Heared humming noise from rear end at 35 mph and up. Took it to the dealer and they wanted $90 plus just to diagnosis the problem. Service tech said it was probably wheel bearing. Wasn't going to pay dealer high price to get it fixed . Took it to our local repair shop and within 5 minutes they verified the problem and are going to fix it for $350.00.
Very Disappointed about Honda quality as this is the second problem with our accord. The starter went out at 50K, but we were able to get Honda USA and dealer to pay for that repair. Strike TWO !
