SERVICE BRAKES

8/6/2013 - EAGAN, MN
MY CAR HAS BEEN AUTOMATICALLY BRAKING AS I WAS ACCELERATING. THIS OCCURRED SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS AND THE DEALERSHIP HAS MENTIONED THAT THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO SINCE THERE IS NO RECALL. I WAS DRIVING/ACCELERATING AT APPROXIMATELY 40 MPH AND THE BRAKES AUTOMATICALLY APPLIED AS IF I HAD SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES. AFTER I LET OFF THE GAS, THE BRAKING STOPPED, BUT AS SOON AS I STEPPED ON THE GAS, IT BRAKED AGAIN, ALMOST CAUSING THE CAR BEHIND ME TO REAR-END ME. I WAS VERY AWARE THAT MY FOOT WAS ONLY ON THE GAS PEDAL - I AM ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT MY FOOT WAS NOT TOUCHING THE BRAKE PEDAL. EVEN MY WIFE WHO WAS WATCHING THE BRAKE PEDAL NOTICED THAT IT WAS MOVING TOWARDS THE FLOOR WITHOUT TOUCHING IT. THIS WENT ON FOR SEVERAL MINUTES AND I WAS ABLE TO PULL TO THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD AND SLOWLY EXIT A SIDE STREET. I TURNED THE ENGINE OFF, WAITED A FEW MINUTES, AND THE PROCEEDED BACK TO THE ROAD WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL ISSUE. THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS SITUATION AND AS I MENTIONED, THIS HAS HAPPENED TO BOTH MY WIFE AND I SEVERAL TIMES OF THE LAST FEW YEARS THAT WE HAVE OWNED THE VEHICLE. THE FIRST TIME THIS OCCURRED, I BELIEVE THE CAR WAS UNDER WARRANTY AND HONDA DID NOTHING TO RECTIFY THE ISSUE. NOW WE ARE STUCK WITH A DANGEROUS ISSUE. THE APPLIED BRAKING ISN'T SUBTLE - INSTEAD IT IS A VERY DRAMATIC "SLAMMING" EFFECT WHILE THE ACCELERATOR IS PRESSED. I NOTICED THAT HONDA HAS RECALLED OTHER VEHICLE MODELS AND YEARS FOR THE EXACT SAME ISSUE. THIS IS A KNOWN DEFECT - PLEASE DEMAND A RECALL SO WE DON'T HAVE TO DRIVE OUR DANGEROUS MINIVAN ANYMORE. THIS ISSUE HAS AND WILL CONTINUE TO CAUSE ACCIDENTS UNLESS SOMETHING IS DONE.
