2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L Navi 3.5 from North America
Love it 90% of the time!
3rd gear not engaging properly. Bulletin from dealer of a kit to repair and done at no extra cost. Crappy part of deal is that they put my into a base model Hyundai Accent for two days... Embarrassing.
Rattles and creaks in dash and in passenger seat somewhere drive me crazy.
Gas door won't open many times without several pushes of the gas release button. Dealer twice and works great there, guess I'll try to fix it myself.
All in all, I love the car. Its looks, ride and performance. It's just the small things like not being able to fill up that anger me. My $1300 Civic's gas door opened every time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I completely understand where you are coming from. I also have an EX-L V6 Coupe with Navi. I have the exact fuel door problem that causes me to kneel beside my car at the gas station pushing the button several times to get the door to open. Mine too open perfectly the first time every time at the dealer when I complained about it.
My Accord is complete with the same set of rattles as yours too. They had to completely disassemble the rear interior to fix a loose weld that was causing an awful creaking sound. I still have an annoying rattle coming from the rear shelf, but was told that is normal for any car and to not bring my car back anymore. There is something rattling around in the ceiling that I haven't gotten a chance to investigate yet. Due to Honda's policy of not offering free loaner cars for warranty service, it is hard to find time to get it in to be looked it.
I really love this car, but these things just frustrate me too much of the time for what I paid for this car. Good luck to you with your car.
