Vehicle "stalls" when: Backing out of driveway when accelerating after slowing down when making left or right turns after stopping or slowing down stalling does not occur every single time but occurs regularly. One one occation stall occured while making a left turn resulting confusion between driver in oncoming traffic and myself as I could not control the vehicle stall duration is between 1 to 3 seconds and it seems to be getting longer as the parts or system components are wearing. Stalls occur mostly in city driving I suspect that the trouble is within the "drive by wire" or the cvt

Driving in neighborhood at 20-25 mph, going down small hill, vehicle suddenly accelerated to about 40 mph. Applied brakes, with no result. Continued up gradual incline and was able to stop. After a couple of minutes, determined that brakes were again responding, continued slowly to destination (two or three blocks). Honda arranged tow to dealer. Dealer has not been able to "duplicate customer concern, " and states that the vehicle is ready for us to pick up. Do not want to drive this brand new car again.

  • 800 miles
Was driving on highway at 65 mph with cruise control on when vehicle suddenly accelerated. Moved hands and feet to make sure I was not causing it, then pressed cancel button on cruise to stop it. By this time I was going 80 mph. Luckily no cars were in front of me or could have had an accident. Took vehicle to dealer and they could not find an error code or replicate problem. Going on vacation for a week and will be using cruise again. Will pay extra attention to this problem while on highway. Have copy of dealer work order, but it is not available for upload. Will retain in case you need to contact at a later date.
