    I've got a 2016 EX with about 44,000 miles on it. Within the last month, the passenger side rear wheel will make a slight noise only when I'm accelerating from a dead stop. I've taken the wheel off, taken the brakes apart, had two mechanics look at it, and both said there was no suspension/brake issues, but I still can't figure out what would be causing it. Any ideas?

    I think that your springs/shocks are 'loading up' when accelerating and that's the noise you're hearing. But I don't think it's *normal*. See if you can replicate the noise by pressing down on the area over the wheel and loading and unloading the spring.

    There is some known issue with our cars concerning a leaking shock absorber. But I can't recall if it was front or rear. Maybe yours is beginning to fail.

    Good luck.

    Alright thank you for that. The weird thing is that you can't hear it from outside of the car. We had it up on a lift this past weekend and looked at everything and didn't see anything leaking or broken seals.

    I'll do my best to do this shortly. It's odd because the noise can't be heard from outside the car, only the inside. I'll post a video if I'm able to capture it on my phone.
