Hello guys
When music is off I can hear tick sound when the transmission shifts gears like a solenoid tick. Shifting is smooth. Can you confirm that everyone hear it or its a start of a potential transmission Issue. I don't hear it on my 09 TL OR 10 CIVIC.

May be the cabin is so Quiet and its a normal characteristic of this Tranny?? I called Honda Tech. support and they said its not a known issue so before I go on multiple test drives with deaf dealerships I want to ask you guys.
Hopefully its normal :-(

I don't hear that noise. But honestly, I wouldn't worry about it. You can drive yourself crazy listening to noises. Do something about it if and when it stops shifting properly. You've got three years on your warranty and I believe three years to buy an extended warranty. Alternatively, the next time you bring it into the dealer ask them to listen to it.

My Accord 2014 Accord V6 does this. I took me some time to notice it but when driving between 10mph and 30mps through a neighborhood with stop signs you can hear it if you turn the radio off and keep the windows up. Never had an issue with the trans so far.

Great If you don't have this noise.
I thought about the 3 year warranty but It would be nice to know If its normal as I don't like to drive thinking about it all the time as I did with my CPO TL which have Engine ping issue since I bought it 3 years ago which is so annoying now I put it on sale and bought this truck so I can have a peace of mind. Well this will be my last Honda If I kept having issues.

Truck came with 10 other issues like dirt/bubbles in Paint, Tail light mis-aligned, Passenger side bed quarter panel loose/sticking out 3/8 of an inch where the fake separation Line is , wheel alignment, squeaky driver seat, loose trim pieces, bad speaker etc
I have it for 2 months now still nothing got fixed booked for 18th October. Yesterday lane watch camera quit working :-(. I can live with all this but not with knowing that tranny will eventually have issues.

Whoa, OK. Stay on the dealer. I can understand why you're a little jumpy.
