This is the first Honda I have owned (and I love it!). I don't know what it means when the word 'Brake' flashes on my dash. Is it telling me I need to brake? Is it telling me it is going to brake for me? I am still getting used to all the safety features. Seems like my car is always fussing at me!

This is the Collision Braking Warning System (CMBS). The system might apply the brakes, if necessary. There can be false warnings. No doubt the first time the "Brake" message flashes, its a bit of a shock. The system can also be turned off, which can be useful in some situations. Here are a couple of key pages from the user manual.

Ahh, thanks. Actually as I was exiting the freeway and crossed the line the PP 'pulled back' like it was braking. I wondered if it though I was going into a skid when I crossed the white lines. Still trying to figure out what it is telling me.

Mine did the same thing - kinda shocked me, I had no idea this would happen.
I've never had so many bells and whistles on my Honda's!

And one thing I've learned from this awesome group, is no question is ever too dumb. There was one troll a while ago, but he vanished!

It really pays to be very familiar with all these 'bells and whistles". With the unfamiliar driver, it can cause mayhem. To all: Read the manual, do 'test drives' to experience different situations in light traffic, and always ask 'dumb' questions. Autos are getting to be like flying an airplane.

Good point Visa on the similarity of our PP's dash to that of an aircraft cockpit. I've had mine almost a month now and the only thing missing is the "Please fasten your seat belts" sign and "The beverage service will begin as soon as we reach 55 mph" sign.:D

Was the Lane Departure system activated? If it was and you didn’t have your turn signal on, that may have been what you were sensing.
