problem #5

Dec 152013


  • 7,000 miles


We returned from shopping and parked car in driveway (approximately 30 degree incline). Went behind to unload back and the car rolled back on us about 4-5 feet at least. We have since been able to duplicate this twice. The car is fully in park with the engine off when this happens. The only injury (thank god!) was my back which was just thrown out a little due to trying to get out from behind the car before it ran over me. My husband twisted his knee a little, but appears okay otherwise. Because it is Sunday, I cannot reach anyone to report to the dealer (bommarito Honda), but have sent them a message demanding they tow the car and get me a loaner immediately. Neither of us will get in this car again. I'm very concerned there may be others at serious risk right now!

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 30 miles
Intermittent problem happened 4 times over 2 weeks while driving new vehicle (just purchased new) about 30 miles. Eco button is on. From full stop, when I step on gas pedal get a 1-2 sec hesitation; no engine rev up, no acceleration. Foot is not on the brake at time of gas pedal hesitation. It's a safety problem in traffic or especially when turning left in traffic. Local Honda dealer tells me this is a known problem to Honda and Honda is working on solution and recall repair.
