Hi. Just looking for information on how to go about with my car. A few months ago, i was driving within my city in the residential area, and while i was driving, my car quickly, like for 3 seconds, just lost power, there was no warning lights or anything that came on, it just felt like i accidentally touch the brakes real quick while driving, but i didn't. Fast forward to Friday. I was driving home from work on the Interstate, probably doing 75mph. There was a big rig gas carrier truck next to me, and all of a sudden with my foot still on the gas my car felt like it was loosing power as if i was putting my foot on the brake, it was at least for 30 seconds as if it was about to come to a complete stop in the middle of the highway, im grateful there was no car behind me, because i really probably would have died getting hit from behind and probably hitting the gas tanker.. But when it did slow down my car swerved and I almost hit the big rig gas carrier truck, but i had to swerve back over into my lane, and about time i got back into my lane the power in the car picked back up (like nothing happened) and i was able to drive home but i just drove slow. I almost died, it was scary, and now im afraid to drive my car. I shouldn't be having this problem my car is only 3 years old. Has anyone experienced this? When i got home i googled this problem and i seen some law suit pages of people commenting of it happening to them, and that some of the honda accords from 2015-2020 have this problem and their lemons, and Honda dealers couldn't fix it. I just got this car a few years ago brand new and still paying for it, and I'm trying to see how i can go about this, is it fixable? will they give me a new car?(i doubt it), has anyone else experience this? Also had a question if this is a lemon car, how does that work, do i get money to be able to buy a new car or how does that work?

Is the engine actually losing power or could it be brakes? If it's the latter, it could be the Collision Mitigation Braking System? My 2018 Accord Touring does that too when the CMBS is activated -- just randomly applies the brakes while you're driving and, yeah, it's very dangerous. Turn it off. Also turn off the Adaptive Cruise Control which can do the same thing.
