Default 2007 Accord noisy and idles rough

Just bought this 4 banger with all the bells and whistles including Navi.
When cold especially, it is somewhat loud and idles a tad rough until the
revs go down and it is warm. Even under load like going up a hill it sounds
louder than normal. No idiot lights showing. It doesn't ride very smooth
either at speed even after wheel balance and allignment.( unrelated to my
first problem I am sure )My 2000 Accord seems quieter and smoother. The
exhaust is fine according to my mechanic. On line some say this is normal ,
if it is I am dissapointed. Any comments would be appreciated.

Good luck.

My opinion is, it's normal--for what Honda turned the Accord into, all
in the name of preserving their profits.

It's way, WAY more profitable to pull costs out of the car and spend
your efforts convincing the public that "look, it says Honda on it, by
definition it's great!".

Does not sound normal to me.

You sure it wasn't in a major bang-up at some point? How many miles
on it? I dunno, does anyone check the valves anymore, compression?
Maybe it ran dry of oil at some point. You got a Carfax for that?

It sounds like a real dog. Why ever did you buy it?
