the automatic transmission allows the minivan to slip backward on a hill when the foot is taken off the accelerator or brake. since i had never driven this minivan before, i almost slid backward into another vehicle. as this transmission is unlike that on other cars i have driven, a warning should be placed prominently in the manual, and the dealer should instruct new honda owners about this risk.

speedometer is inaccurate at the 10% level which maufacturer says is within guidelines established by your agency altho could not provide me with hard copy, later dealer said inaccurate speddometer readings within dot standard and finally said it was a honda standard. inaccurate speedometer is dangerous and may lead to a serious accident. honda replaced it once. told me replacement might be as bad. and it was. so does honda have who knows how may accords out on the roads with 10% inaccurate readings on their speedometers? i believe that accuracy standard shoud exist for sppedometers but am at mercy of manufacturer who says they set the accuracy level only. this is a safety issue in my humble opinion. could you look into this for me and probabl thousands of other honda owners who do not have the faintest idea that their speedo are giving them false reasdings.

speedometer error has been verified by aaa. also, a coworker with the same car, has similar high readings. this adds additional maintenance costs as well as lowers the resale value. *ak
