I was parking my car on an upward incline and turning left into a parking space when I suddenly had no control over the car and it just kept lurching/moving forward. The car stopped only because the front wheels went up and over a concrete curb.,,,there was a link fence and then a deep embankment beyond I was able to turn the engine off and then back up over the curb to park the car I do not feel this car is safe to drive. It is presently at a Honda dealer who say there is nothing wrong with the car there is also a problem with the tire pressure warning coming on and when checked there is nothing wrong with the tire pressure but the warning light will not go off.

Was traveling about 25 mph on South las vegas boulevard in las vegas, Nevada, went to accelerate around a car and pushed the gas pedal down to the floor to kick it into another gear. The engine revved up and the pedal wouldn't come off the floor even when I tried to pry it off with my foot.. the car continued to rev uncontrollable until I put it in neutral and shut the car off as I traveled down the road. I pulled into a parking lot. There, at a stop, I started the car, put it in neutral, pushed the gas pedal to the floor to see if it would do it again and the car revved up. I let my foot off the gas, and the car continued to rev up with the pedal not returning back towards me-stuck to the floor board again. I had to shut it off again to release the pedal and stop the revving.

Had to apply brake with left foot and then apply gas peddle with right foot for immediate acceleration to avoid accident. Upon applying brake and then the gas car bogged as if to stall almost causing another accident. This has happened several times since initial incident. I took car to fox Honda, Michigan (dealer where car was leased from) and they indicated that I shouldn't break with left and then give it gas with right. Unfortunately there have been more than one scenario where this was needed to be done and in each case it bogged to point of stall before accelerating. Dealership said there was nothing they could do.
