problem #4

Jul 212016


  • 85,500 miles


I was positioning my car outside my office for loading. I backed in, then put the car in 'd(rive)' to inch forward a bit. Before I could step on the gas, the car accelerated and with engine racing headed toward a high curb beyond which stood a large, mature tree. I slammed on the brakes but to no avail; the pedal went limply to the floor without affect. At the same time I shifted into N(eutral), again without affect. I grabbed for the hand brake but it was too late. The car jumped the high curb and ploughed into the tree. Knowing that my foot had not slipped off the brake and onto the accelerator pedal, I checked the NHTSA website and was shocked to see numerous similar stories about the Honda Fit covering a decade! my fear is that Honda will not take this product defect seriously until someone is killed!

I drove into my driveway to park in our car port. As I approached the car port the car suddenly accelerated. I applied the brakes but it did not even slow down. The car went over a 8 inch by 4 inch barrier at the front of the car port, continued to gain speed as it went through a small garden, then it knocked down our privacy fence. All during this time I was applying the brake. The car then went about 60 feet through our neighbors yard and continued through the next houses' privacy fence and went another 6 feet and finally stopped when it hit the house. The air bags never released.

After cold start the ABS and brake warning lights were lit on dashboard. They went away after pressing the brake pedal twice. The lights were off during the driving and brakes worked normally. Subsequent starting was unremarkable. There were no leaks or poor quality fluid in the system. Can be a first sign of ABS unit failure (bad pump motor).

Accelerated out of an intersection, from a stop at a stop sign, car lost power, steering...coasted across intersection to a stop. Called for a tow. While waiting, attempted to start car-it started. Drove home and had it towed to dealer, examined for several days, could not find a problem to fix. Same problem just occurred while car was in motion driving at approximately 30 miles per hour. Car suddenly lost steering/power. Got car to side of road. Again, it restarted on its own after a few minutes. Weather conditions cold and dry.
