Accord EX-L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles

So I've bought my accord brand new 09 had some little problems with it over the past couple of years but that was just dust pasting through. But a few days ago something new occurred! I use my A/C everyday it's all good until i get to a red light and my car Idles. The thing is when I turn my A/C off while idling I feel like my cars struggling to breathe or something and you can hear it in the engine the sound is different. But when I accelerate normally with my A/C on sh*t starts to hesitated like it doesn't want to go like there's some kind of delay that's not connecting or something. You can feel some kind of jerk or vibration. Honda a full of sh*t, hope SOMEONE can help me with my situation sh*ts ridiculous man.

problem #1

Dec 012009

Accord EX 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,700 miles

I bought the car used in November 2009. Did not notice the issue at first, as it wasn't as noticeable until spring/summer when i use the air every day. When i am idling and the air conditioner is on...every 30 seconds or so the car will "jerk" and the RPM's will drop and jump back to 1 or 1.5 . You can also hear the sound difference in the engine when it does this. The jerk in the car is so significant, I've had passengers say "what the hell was that" ....it is SOOO annoying. I've taken it to the dealership twice now and they claim "that's normal in all the accords" . That's bullshit!!...If i am sitting at a stoplight and the light turns green when the car is about to "jerk" you can feel the delay when I put my foot on the gas...and it feels as if i don't know how to drive and just stepped on the gas too hard. I've also seen the RPM's jump WAY up...when my foot is on the BRAKE. So fed up with this car, and the dealership!
