I had the dealership service tech start it up yesterday but of course I got the "totally normal"response, even know it's totally different from my 18 Ridgeline. I don't think I'd notice it as much if the seat was not retracted all the way back prior to starting. I hope this is something that I'll have to get adjusted to. I just never had a vehicle's brake pedal pressurize without pumping it while the car is off. Literally, I'll shut down the car, get out, then go back 2 min later and the brake pedal is fully pressurized. (77 Ford, 88 Volvo, Accord, two 3.2TL's, Ridgeline and now PP). Thank you for responding Mt. man, I'll seek one more opinion from a Honda tech that doesn't work for a dealership.James, have the dealer check it out. Should operate the same as the Ridgeline.
