The contact owns a 2004 Honda CRV. While driving between 35-40 mph, the accelerator pedal extended to the floor when the brake pedal was depressed. There were no warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The failure occurred in 2004 and, after the third diagnosis, the dealer repaired the vehicle. The failure recurred in 2009, although the dealer stated that they rebooted the computer and added new software in 2004. If the vehicle is shut off for 30 seconds, the failure corrects itself. The most recent failure occurred on May 22, 2009. The failure mileage was 75,000 and current mileage was 76,000.

1) while coming to a stop off an exit ramp the car tried to accelerate ot max speed. The only way tom stop the car was to hold both feet on the brakes and shut car off. (this is one out of four incidents between 1000 and 2000 miles on a brand new Honda CR-V) 2)restart of car correted problem. The next day it hapened again and it took 5 re- starts to correct the problem. 3) Honda looked at car two different occasions, and said they could not find any problem with the car.
