2016 Honda Accord Sdn - CVT concerns

My concern is regarding the cvt engine is it supposed to be rough start or quite. When giving it gas should you really hear it cause when I apply gas it’s rough take off and the cars behind me are at a distance.

We are not really sure what you’re driving at YK54. You may want to clarify the post. ps - CVT stands for constantly variable transmission. Not engine.

Apparently you’re concerned about a noise your car is making. Accords are typically fairly quiet so you’re right to be concerned. Is this a new noise? Where does it seem to be coming from? CVT transmissions make disconcerting noises when there’s a problem. How many miles are on your Accord? When was the last time the transmission fluid was changed?
