Hi everyone!

I just get my new Honda Accord Coupe, with 5-speed automatic transmission.

Every time I fully release the gal pedal, I feel kind of sudden deceleration. I used to drive a Chevy and a few other rental cars, I don't remember feeling such obvious deceleration when releasing the gas pedal.

Is it because this is a new car? Will it disappear after break-in? Or there is something wrong?

If it's brand new you should ask the dealer, not a random internet group. The newest Honda 99% of us own are 15 years old now.

id guess its some of that fancy brake assist shit they are putting on cars now a day, because usually when you release a gas pedal you are in the process of going to the brake pedal... it also could be a stuck caliper. call the dealer and ask them...
