Uphill acceleration

Asked by Jan 27, 2017 at 05:59 PM about the 2016 Honda CR-V EX AWD

Question type: General

I recently bought a CR-V. I've noticed that on steep uphills, the car accelerates
gears down and actually accelerates even when I don't push on the gas pedal
(and not in cruise). I'm not overly excited by this function because of higher
fuel consumption and additional risk on slippery driving conditions. Al B.

If the car runs off on its own then you have a major problem. Take it back to the dealer, after all that is what warranties are for.
