Engine Mechanical problem
2009 Acura TSX 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 2526 miles

I bought a brand new 2009 TSX and noticed a very slight knocking in the engine between 2300-2500 rpm. Sounds like it is coming from the right side, deep in the engine. This started around 2300 miles (when I noticed it anyway.) It occurs when going up a hill or on a strait-a-way. Can't hear it unless radio, heat/air is off. Got on the computer and researched it to see if anybody else is having the problem; they are. Even in Austrailia and Europe, people are noticing this under the exact same conditions. Acura is saying it is "characteristic" of the engine and are "looking into it" with their engineers at the moment. I have always used premium 93 fuel, so gas is not the problem. Does this sound like something that will get worse? I am considering trading it immediately, but will hold on if I feel like it is something simple that can be adjusted via a recall.

Thanks for your input :)

Do you
have the same problem?
