I have an ongoing problem with un-commanded accelerator surging on my 2006 Honda Ridgeline. This has been addressed with both the dealer and Honda customer service. After which the Honda tech rep informed the dealer not to address this problem in the future. After driving some distance at constant highway speeds and then making a speed change such as passing or slowing for traffic, there is at times a un-commanded accelerator surging.
