Great car, we have the wind noise problem on the drivers side, the dealer denies any known fault and some panels gaps are a little out. Overall its a great car very versatile, comfortable and i think good value for money.
Andrew B, There is a Technical Service Bulletin from Honda about the wind noise - I've been shown the document by my dealer - get your dealer to check.
For Andrew Beaumont - I had/have the same problem as you which was partially fixed by the insertion of soundproofing material in the scuttle, I believe. The wind noise still exists to some extent and in speaking to my dealer earlier this week he advised that Honda have now confirmed that a wind noise problem exists and have indicated that the mirror should be removed and re-sealed with a particular type of filler.
Mine is due to be repaired next Thursday, together with another "Honda Aware" fault of creaking rear springs, which was apparent from new. Partially fixed at the moment with "Copper Slip" applied by dealer.
Many thanks for your comments. It is good to know I am not alone in experiencing these problems.
I got the car back from Honda for the 3rd time on Thursday and all appears to be fixed. However the last time I got it back it took 2-3 weeks for the noise to reappear, so fingers crossed this time.
The creaking noise had gone and I gather from the dealer that they have used larger springs so that they don't move around in the cups. Do post back on this site if you encounter any further problems, and I will comment too should the problem arise again.
