WE HAVE A 2007 HONDA ODYSSEY WITH 76,000 MILES. IN DECEMBER 2012 WE HAD BEEN DRIVING FOR APPROXIMATELY 3-4 MINUTES, EXITING ONTO THE HIGHWAY AND ACCELERATING TO REACH 65 MILES PER HOUR. WHEN WE REACHED APPROXIMATELY 55-60 MPH AND WERE STILL ACCELERATING THE CAR SPONTANEOUSLY APPLIED THE BRAKES FOR APPROXIMATELY 3 SECONDS, LURCHING US FORWARD. WE STOPPED ACCELERATING AND BEGAN TO PULL OVER. IT AGAIN SPONTANEOUSLY BRAKED AS WE WERE SLOWING DOWN. WE ATTEMPTED TO DRIVE SLOWLY ALONG THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, TO GET TO THE NEXT EXIT, AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN. ONCE WE WERE FINALLY ABLE TO STOP IN A SAFE PLACE WE TURNED OFF THE CAR. WE TURNED THE CAR BACK ON AND IT DID NOT DO IT AGAIN. WE TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER AND THEY ONLY FOUND ONE CODE - THE STEERING SENSOR. THEY RE-CALIBRATED IT BUT WERE NOT CONVINCED THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. SURE ENOUGH, APPROXIMATELY TWO MONTHS LATER THE SAME THING HAPPENED. WE WERE NOT GOING QUITE AS FAST AND IT DID NOT LURCH QUITE AS SEVERE. AFTER IT DID THIS THREE TIMES I WAS AT A STOP LIGHT AND PUSHED THE SWITCH TO TURN THE VSA OFF. IT DID NOT OCCUR AGAIN. TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY FOUND NO CODES. THEY DROVE 17 MILES AND COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM. THE WEATHER CONDITIONS BOTH TIMES WERE APPROXIMATELY 30-40 DEGREES WITH SOME SNOW OR WETNESS ON THE GROUND FROM PRIOR PRECIPITATION. THE DEALER CONTINUES TO SAY THERE IS NO PROBLEM BECAUSE IT SHOWS NO CODE AND THEY CAN'T REPLICATE THE PROBLEM. MANUFACTURE WAS CONTACTED AND THEY INSTRUCTED DEALER TO DRIVE AGAIN AND TRY TO DUPLICATE. THEY DENY ANY OTHER INCIDENTS DOCUMENTED (DESPITE LISTINGS ON THIS WEBSITE THAT SAY THEY HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED OF THE SAME PROBLEM.)
