    I have loud tyre rolling noise too. Could be the brand of tyre used by Honda. As i have only done 19k km, i would not change them yet.

    Next problem is the dash design and steering wheel.There are so many interfacing and overlapping of different materials creating deep joints that collect lots of dirt and dust which is difficult to wipe off. need to use a vacuum and toothbrush to get to the crevices. Very poorly thought out. I have never seen such a car that is so difficult to clean where it mattered most.

    One final problem; my first time owning a “push start button” car. Unlike traditional key type, you can’t turn on the switch to “accessory” or “on” and operate the windows or wipers. You need to start the car to do that. How silly!

    Also, the auto light comes on even when skies are still quite bright. Even by turning the light stalk to “off”, it cannot turn off the light. So what’s the function of “off” on the light stalk for??!
