Default Why is my 2013 Honda accord coupe (v4) making alot of noise?

It's a month or so old and I didn't notice the noise at first but the engine is very loud and annoying when I have my windows open

If it's an automatic, than it is the CVT.

One of the things that Honda did for the new 2013 Accord was that they switched from a 5 speed automatic to a CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission). Now, this new transmission is essentially, one gear. And when it accelerates, the RPM is pegged at peak torque and hp. CVTs are generally faster in a straight line than traditional automatic transmissions because it doesn't have to go through all the gears to achieve a good power band. They are generally much more efficient than automatics and manual transmissions as well.

On the bad side...They sound horrible.

The RPM is pegged at a high RPM that doesn't sound very nice.

Something you might want to get used to. Cars down the road (no pun intended) will eventually be fitted with annoying CVTs.

If you have a v4 under the hood, that is a problem.
