On April 17, 2016 at 3.30 pm while forward parking my vehicle, I experienced a sudden uncontrolled acceleration, resulting in the vehicle impacting the wall in front of my parking spot. The wall was apx. 20 ft from the car at the time of this incident. I had my foot on the brake during the later stages of the parking maneuver and speed was minimal <5 km/H). Before coming to a standstill, the engine sprung to maximum RPM without me ever touching the accelerator. I didn't have time to control it and the brakes were also ineffective. Upon impact the driver front airbag deployed and the horn started. I switched off the engine and removed the keys. Several witnesses came forward for assistance, police, ambulance and fire department were on site. A police report was filed. This incident is very concerning; people could have been seriously injured had this happened in another location or if passersby where present.

Two incidents of sudden unintended acceleration. The first on January 31, 2014, the second on March 25, 2014. Both incidents occurred at a very slow rate of speed of approximately five miles per hour. In both situations the car was coming to a stop with the brake being applied. Suddenly, the rpms increased and the car suddenly moved forward with the break unable to stop the car even though both feet were applied to the brake peddle. The car was stopped by putting the gear shift into neutral and turning off the engine. This has been reported to Honda of America as well as to the local Honda dealer. The car was brought to the dealer two times, but the dealer unable to diagnose the problem. Honda of America (800 999-1009) has opened a case number which is: N012014-03-2600701. This is a potentially very dangerous situation. Updated 06/04/14
