After 3 months of new car ownership and appx 2000 miles when you hit 52 mph there's a loud roaring noise that abruptly stops. Its louder in cold weather. Same noise also happens at lower speed of appx 35 -49 mph but is muted. Car has been into dealer 5 times for same issue ad honda hasn't been able to fix. Noise happen on any road while in motion. 1st dealer check was in nov 2018. I filled complaint number: 11303013 but have never heard back from anyone. Multiple honda hybrid owners have this problem.

TL THE CONTACT OWNS A 2016 Honda Accord. THE CONTACT STATED AT START-UP HE HEARD AN ABNORMAL NOISE COMING FROM THE ENGINE. THE CONTACT STATED THAT THE KEY WAS REMOVED FROM THE IGNITION HOWEVER, THE ENGINE REMAINED RUNNING. THE CONTACT HAD THE VEHICLE TOWED TO DEPAULA CHEVROLET (785 CENTRAL AVE, ALBANY, NY 12206) WHERE A DIAGNOSTIC TEST WAS PERFORMED HOWEVER, THE MECHANIC WAS UNABLE TO RETRIEVE A FAULT CODE. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT REPAIRED. THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOT NOTIFIED OF THE FAILURE. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 76,000.
I was driving the other night at 9pm. Dry conditions and about 65 degrees outside. I had pulled up to a stop sign and as i came to a complete stop by car started sending me warning notices. See attached pictures. I was told i probably had bugs on one of the front sensors on the vehicle. After a good cleaning of thise areas this still didn't solve the issue. I bought this vehicle because honda is known for it's safety but that looks like it's not the case anymore.
After exiting a drive-thru car wash, drove through the parking lot and stopped behind a car exiting via a driveway onto main street. While i applied brake the engine began to race up to 5000 rpm. I was unable to keep the car from creeping forward with major force on the brakes. I moved the shift lever to n and pressed the start/stop button, shutting down the engine to avoid collision with the car in front of me. After the car in front of me exited, i re-started the car and everything appeared normal. Have not had a recurrence of the problem. Have not taken the car to the dealer yet because i'm not sure that i trust them. Similar previous complaints: 11331361, 11235107, 11142830, 11121723, 11119028, 11062545, 10948426 & 10860066. Seems to be a serious recurring safety issue.
