Vortex generators are frequently discussed on here, and I have yet to see any improvements from cars. Trucks are another story, but cars are not designed like trucks. I have looked up vortex generators before and the people selling them claim all sorts of things they don't do, such as 'reduced wind noise'. No, they actually increase wind noise.

Don't waste your money on that. I mean, you can if you want, but I wouldn't. I would buy another 4' x 8' sheet or 2 of coroplast for vortex generator money.

See if the underside of your accord is anything similar to this:
