THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THAT THIS VEHICLE CAUSES AN ACCIDENT DUE TO INVOLUNTARY ACCELERATION DEFECT. I WAS COMING TO A COMPLETE STOP TO PARK THE CAR WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN IT ACCELERATED ON ITS OWN AND SPED INTO A BUILDING. FIRST IT HIT AN IRON BENCH PUSHING IT INTO THE WALL. THE CAR MISSED HITTING A YOUNG MOTHER AND HER FOUR LITTLE KIDS BY MERE SECONDS. MY INSURANCE COMPANY SENT ONE OF THEIR OWN ADJUSTERS TO INSPECT THE DAMAGES, AND DETERMINED THAT THE CAR SHOULD BE REPAIRED. IN THE MEANTIME THE PEOPLE AT THE BODY SHOP WHERE THE CAR WAS TOWED TO KEPT TELLING ME THAT THE CAR WAS NOT SAFE TO BE PUT ON THE ROAD AGAIN. I PLEADED WITH MY INSURER TO HAVE IT TOTALED AS I WAS TOO AFRAID TO DRIVE IT AGAIN AFTER TWO ACCIDENTS, AND MY CONSCIENCE DID NOT ALLOW ME TO SELL THE CAR AFTER THE REPAIRS PUTTING SOMEBODY ELSE IN SAME KIND OF DANGER. I ALSO CALLED HONDA, BUT THEIR REPLY WAS THAT HONDA WAS NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. HONDA FOLKS WERE EVEN ANNOYED THAT I CALLED THEM SAYING THAT MY INSURER WAS THE ONE TO CONTACT THEM THROUGH THE PROPER CHANNELS. FINALLY MY INSURANCE AGREED TO TOTAL THE CAR. HOWEVER, I SAW THAT THE CAR WAS SOLD TO AN AUCTION DEALER LISTING IT AS "SALVAGE TITLE/REBUILDABLE." THE CAR IS FOR SALE AGAIN STATING THAT IT WILL COST $4,872.00 TO FIX IT. MY INSURANCE COMPANY INCREASED MY PREMIUMS CONSIDERABLY CONSIDERING ME THE PARTY AT FAULT. I ASK NHTSA TO ACT QUICKLY TO STOP THIS UNSAFE AND UNFAIR PRACTICE.....UPDATED 08/20/15 UPDATED 9/30/2015
