The car was sitting on a hill, and I turned the key in the on position. I then turned the key to start, and the engine did not turn over, and the cab lost all power. So I took it to auto zone, and they said that nothing was wrong with it.

The car was in an indoor parking lot. Driver backed up out of its parking space at a low speed and bumped into a wall behind the parking spot. At that point, the car jumped into drive and began accelerating without driver doing anything. Driver applied the brake, but the car continued to accelerate and hit a cement pylon. The car bounced off the cement pylon and the car continued to accelerate forward, even though driver was applying the brake. The car hit the cement pylon again and then another car. The car only stopped when driver put it into park and turned it off.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 11,450 miles
I was positioned at an intersection, waiting to make a left turn in heavy traffic. Since this vehicle is more powerful than the one I had, pulling out into traffic didn't concern me that much. Well, it does now. It went just enough into the intersection to get me into a near crash situation. It just totally bogged down. Throttle position sensor maybe? I have talked to four people with 2010 and 2011 CRV's and they say the same thing. I love this car, but this has to be addressed. I have had no other problems except for this. This is a real downer for me in relation to this car. Help us Honda.
