2017 Honda Accord Can’t Escape This Flaw!

By  | 

The 2017 Honda Accord is, no doubt, a great edition to the whole Honda lineup. This front-wheel drive model is equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder mill worth 189 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of toque.

The Accord Sport Special Edition is an extra trim from the 2016 Honda Accord trim levels. This model features unique elements such as leather seats with red stitching, heated seats along with a Special Edition badge on its exterior.

The 2017 Accord comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, just like its predecessor. This will be accessible via the optional HondaLink infotainment system which allows drivers to access functions such as making calls, sending texts, accessing apps, streaming music and other enticing features.

However, it appears that the all-new Honda Accord can’t seem to escape this one crippling flaw. There’s no doubt that music is an integral part of lives today and it’s become a habit for most folks to crank up the volume and enjoy their favorite tracks during their daily commutes.

According to a Reddit thread, a 2017 Accord owner states that the one thing that he hates about his new car is its audio as it comes with substandard sound quality.

Other Redditors, who feel the same way, suggested that the audio will be better if the bass and treble settings are increased. If a smartphone is used to play the music, it’ll be best to disable all equalization on the device and allow the car’s system to handle it entirely.

Alternatively, if you are not pleased with the audio system, you could opt to install amplifiers with build-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) to enhance your audio system.
