Accord 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,600 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Honda Accord. While driving 20 mph, the engine revved. The contact was able to drive the vehicle to his residence, but the engine "raced" the entire time. A few days later, the contact's wife started the vehicle and lightly tapped the accelerator pedal. The vehicle suddenly experienced unintended acceleration, causing the vehicle to crash straight into a home across the street. The brake pedal was depressed, but they failed to work properly. The vehicle had not been moved since the day of the first incident. The vehicle was towed to a dealer, but they did not explain what caused the failure or defect. The current and failure mileages were 1,600. Updated 07/15/08. The dealer stated the computer did not show any defects and the brakes were not applied. Updated 07/15/08
