2011 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

Odyssey 6-cyl

This vehicle usually surges while moving slowly in a line of traffic. It doesn't happen all the time but it makes for very nervous driving because it will continue happening until I'm away from other traffic and moving at a normal speed. It will also happen when I turn into a parking area which requires going up an incline. If it's very steep, I may spin my tires not expecting the sudden acceleration. This surge seems to me as if the carburetor fuel bowl is empty while idling and when it refills, by my pressing on the gas pedal, it causes the car to lunge ahead. I have asked my local Honda dealer if he has a solution to this hazard and have been told that this something that the " Honda manufacturer has installed" and that my complaint is not the first they have heard of this happening. If this is true and I doubt it, then I feel I can't let my wife drive the car and I don't feel at all safe driving it in traffic. Please let me know what can be done to correct this asap. I purchased this car used in Sept./ 13 and wasn't told of anything wrong. I was advised to use chevron for the next fill-up. It didn't improve and I tried injector fluids with no improvement. I'm quite sure the selling dealer wont give me satisfaction especially since there was a trade-in involved.
