I bought this car in September when it just turned one year old with 28,000km.
I've a few niggly problems -
When driving, the car steers easier to the right and has a bit more resistance turning left.
Gear changing is notchy with the clutch pedal to the floor (any manual adjustment ?)
I've drive manual/stick for over 30 years but, cannot always achieve a smooth gear change when I start to depress the accelerator pedal. The car jerks/leaps forward slightly. Same if I'm off the gas but in 1st/2nd/3rd/4th gear, then press the accelerator pedal, same symptoms. Feels like taking up the slack in the accelerator pedal.
Engine is running and I apply pressure to the brake pedal. I find the point of resistance but, if I push harder, I can slowly push the pedal all the way to the floor.
The car was bought from a Honda dealer with a (supposed) 100+point inspection.
I feel the need for some insight prior to discussing with the dealer.
All help is greatly appreciated

roads are built to where ur car should gradually steer itself to the right when u take ur hands off the wheel. next time it rains look to where the water goes - this will answer ur question to why ur car steers to the right.

gear notchiness - is it cold up there? its always hot in florida and ive never experienced this problem.

everything else, dont know what to tell ya.

never buy a used car, even if it's a honda, because u never kno what the previous owner(s) have done to it.
