2012 Honda Odyssey. Consumer writes in regards to acceleration problems. The consumer stated when she slowed down or let off the gas pedal, the engine acted as though it was going to shut off, then all of a sudden it would lurch forward. It also happened when letting off the gas to turn a corner, and when she attempted to accelerate, it felt as though the vehicle was going to stall.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13 miles
The contact owns a 2012 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that there was a three second delay before the vehicle accelerated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and where the contact was informed that the 2012 model is a six-gear vehicle and there is a delay before accelerating so the vehicle was operating as designed. The failure mileage was 13 and the current mileage was 8,400. The consumer was informed the vehicle has a 5 speed transmission with grade logic control and the new models have a six speed transmission which corrected the hesitation on acceleration.
