When I've wanted to do that, I just hit the top bottom that turns it off.

Of course that also turns off the navigation, carplay, etc. So that might not be the solution you are looking for.
Thanks darthpuppy! Yeah, I was hoping to keep the rest of it on. (I feel bad I seem to have lost the little book manual)...

The Push Button Transmission "Bridge."
This is part a functionality and part aesthetics comment.
Could the push button transmission be integrated more fully into the vertical dashboard? The bridge where it sits doesn't offer any increased convenience other than hold the buttons horizontally and, to some extent, provide a bit of cover for the storage tray, below. The "shelf" that runs along both sides of the buttons has no practical use (my experience, so far). It's not enough to hold anything....certainly not a cup or phone.

Better headlights! The led lights on my previous accord touring were far superior

Louder horn

Not a fan of the wiper fluid mechanism thru the blades, spray works better

Center console too wide, my right knee keeps hitting it.

But I still love using electrons instead of hydrocarbons for my daily commute.

There's an online manual, your HondaLink app probably gives you access (I have the EV). Pull down the main screen (horizontal bar), right bottom "Support", Guides, then you should see choices for Vehicle Guides and App Guides. The manual is also accessible from a web browser (I don't have
that URL/navigation handy).

The rear hatch supports need to be stiffer. They work great holding the rear hatch open on level ground. But parked on a driveway which is slanted so rain runs off to the street gutter, the hatch has a tendency to drop closed with the slightest bit of wind or vibration in the car - say when putting something in the trunk. That is really bad when I'm reaching for something up next to the rear seats. That door latch has gotten me pretty hard in the back a couple times, some of them were right by my spine.

I don't see any way to adjust the firmness of the hatch supports. Anyone have any info on that?

I've resorted to keeping a prop stick in the trunk that I jam between the trunk floor and the glass section to keep it from closing when I need to reach into the trunk.

Honda sells a rear lip spoiler. I remember when helping my friend buy a spoiler off eBay for his '04 Acura TL that the OEM Acura spoiler was so much more expensive because they came with upgraded/stiffer shocks. Maybe these would be available without buying the whole spoiler kit. (Not sure the smallish lip spoiler comes with shocks in the first place though).

Yes, the Honda Accessory spoiler includes an updated right side spring. Don't see the part number sadly:
