2012 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 122016


  • 37,926 miles


I was in my driveway, stopped, getting ready to pull in to the garage. I had stopped with my foot on the brake pedal, and then I pressed the button to open the garage door and waited for the garage door to go up. While the garage door was starting to go up and the brake pedal was still pressed, the car suddenly, unintentionally, unexpectedly accelerated by itself into the garage door causing the windshield to break on the garage door and the garage door to break off of its tracks. It is unknown the component or system that caused the sudden unexpected acceleration. It could have been the engine, fuel/propulsion system, or speed control. But something caused a sudden unexpected acceleration while the brake pedal was applied.

When pressing the accelerator, the vehicle hesitates, then surges forward at a high rate of speed. This happens quite often with no pattern or indication. I questioned the dealer and they said it was due to the wireless method used to transmit the signal from the accelerator to the injection system. They said I would have to learn to live with it.
