Per the following recall;
Safety Recall: 2015-17 Accord V6 Fuel Pump
Work was accomplished last fall, physical inspection of the fuel pump was satisfactory but the dealer performed the remedial software update - I thought maybe it was my imagination but since this work the car does not accelerate the same as it did before - feels underpowered and will downshift while accelerating to keep up, if I need power I really have to put my foot down.
To quote another user from an Accord message board:
| I’ve had the update for 3 days now and I definitely do notice that the shiftpoints have definitely changed, and the car feels more sluggish (like it has less available power, or i need to press the gas pedal further to get the same effect).
Might just be in my head though. In the IT World you wouldn’t release a firmware update without a detailed changelog. Wish the same was true for car firmware. |
So that’s what I’ve noticed in a nut shell - has anyone else noticed this and is there anything I can do about it? Reversing the update, if that was even possible would probably defeat the purpose of the recall fix in the first place.
On a side note I have VCM Tuner installed and it made the world of difference on this engine.
