I stopped fairly heavily, and while the car stopped well as expected, the brake pedal continued to drop almost to the floor. Mileage is approximately 58,000 miles. Rear brakes are oem..

I was driving West devon with the speed limit 20, I was going at 5 to 08 miles or less, in a second I felt the car accelerate by himself, I tried to stop, the breaks did not respond and hit a car in front of me.the impact was like some one was pushing me, when I hit the car and I have my seat belt on, the air bag did not work, for the damage in my car the was soo bad that the whole front was damage so bad for the speed, that I am not sure if this car safe for my wife to drive.this is wake call for the safety of my family I am sure as soon the repair is done I will trade this car.this car is like driving with plastic metal. I saw in the internet Honda recall some Fit models.

I was traveling East on route 322 near dauphin, pa at about 55 mph. I was in the right hand lane. A car traveling in the left hand lane cut in front of me. To avoid hitting him, I applied the brakes hard. My car suddenly went out of control, fishtailing in the lane and then suddenly went into the left hand lane. I turned the steering wheel to the right. The rear end of the car swung around hitting a bridge abutment, bounced off, and went back into the right hand lane. I was finally able to straighten the car out and pull over to the shoulder and stop it. Fortunately I did not hit anyone, but did significant damage to my car. This incident reminded me of an accident I had years ago with the Chevy citation and the brakes locked on me. Is the same thing happening with the Fit? I know it has ABS, but things can and do go wrong. I asked the repair shop to look at the brakes, they did not see anything. But the problem may not be visible.
