This vehicle usually surges while moving slowly in a line of traffic. It doesn't happen all the time but it makes for very nervous driving because it will continue happening until I'm away from other traffic and moving at a normal speed. It will also happen when I turn into a parking area which requires going up an incline. If it's very steep , I may spin my tires not expecting the sudden acceleration. This surge seems to me as if the carburetor fuel bowl is empty while idling and when it refills, by my pressing on the gas pedal, it causes the car to lunge ahead. I have asked my local Honda dealer if he has a solution to this hazard and have been told that this something that the " Honda manufacturer has installed" and that my complaint is not the first they have heard of this happening. If this is true and I doubt it, then I feel I can't let my wife drive the car and I don't feel at all safe driving it in traffic. Please let me know what can be done to correct this ASAP. I purchased this car used in sept. / 13 and wasn't told of anything wrong. I was advised to use chevron for the next fill-up. It didn't improve and I tried injector fluids with no improvement. I'm quite sure the selling dealer wont give me satisfaction especially since there was a trade-in involved.

Failure Date: 09/12/2008

We bought a used 2007 Honda Odyssey with 13,385 miles on it from southwest Honda in amarillo texas. Our major buying point was the mpg. The sticker showed us 19city/26highway. I know this can be off by a few miles and hence the tiny print that says it can be a low of 16/22. And boy would I be glad if I was getting 16! I do almost all of my driving in town and was really surprised the first time I had to already fill it up with just over 200 miles on it! I thought it was bad gas so tried it a couple more times with high octane gas and still the same. The van was at best getting 9mpg in town! ( when we are on the highway it gets what the sticker says. ) I even started to drive as carefully/slowly as possible to see if any changes and had none. We decided to drive 2 hours back to the dealership to have them check it out b/c something had to be wrong. Since we didn't have any warning lights there was not a lot the mechanics said they could troubleshoot. They pretty much hooked up a machine and drove it around town. Their machine said we got 12 to 13 mpg, still not what they claim it should be getting but at this point I would be happy with that! they said they checked the oil, fuel injectors , made sure we were putting the right kind of gas in. They printed off how to calculate mpg, which we already knew and sent us on our merry little way to the gas pumps! these car companies need to be held accountable for the estimated mpg and if a vehicle does not fall within those estimations the customer should at least be refunded the extra amount they are having to pay for gas. With gas prices going up there needs to be more accountability b/c this is the major reason people are buying different vehicles right now. Who and what is making sure these mpg are not bogus so customers aren't getting taken advantage of. There needs to be customer protection on something like this.
