2016 Honda Accord Owner Comments

Honda quality problems. We bought a 2016 Honda Accord in January. After few months the car started to have problems. The car loses acceleration all of a sudden and comes to a low speed (0-5 mph) within seconds. Every time this happened I was driving on the freeway. I took to the dealer many times. First time - the dealer said that he couldn't find anything wrong with the car second time - as per Honda tech, they diagnosed that the chip in the computer is the problem. So they said that the software in the computer needed upgrade (strange.. it is a brand new car. And why is this happening to only one car. It should have been the case with other cars produced at the same time). Third time - as per Honda tech, they replaced the acceleration kit as they thought that is the problem. Fourth time - now they think the wiring is the problem and replaced that. Every time, I drove that car trusting them, I risked my life. I avoided accident 8 times on freeway from being rear ended. I drove into the central ditch on the freeway and injured my shoulder. I am on medication for the past 1+ month. I am worried that I drive this car and am going to die.
