2018 Honda CR-V - Loses power

My 2018 CRV has lost power numerous times, normally it is when i am driving and come to either a turn or complete stop and began to accelerate afterwards which at this time results in a loss of power. Very scary… i bought this new i currently have 23,000 miles on it. I have not reported the issue yet to Honda but I am this week because it is happening more frequently

That is the right thing to do. The car is under warranty and your dealer is obligated to repair it.

Honda’s dealer is the exact right place to start. If you want to, you could also inform NHTSA.

I am curious as to whether you are referring to a loss of engine power, or to a loss of electrical power. But, no matter which one it is, the diagnosis and repair of your fully-warrantied almost-new car is the responsibility of the dealership. Do NOT attempt to fix this yourself.

Can you repeat the problem? You may have to take the dealer’s service person for a drive to show them exactly what happens.
