Default Do all Honda cars, immediately slow down (a little bit) when you take the foot of the gas ?

I am interested in buying a Honda car (2010 Honda Fit with 13,000 miles) The car seems nice, but when I test drove it, It seemed that the car slowed down a little when I took the foot of the gas. The dealership said all Honda's do that, but I am not sure.

Go to a different dealer & test drive another Honda fit & see what happens. If it's true then you'll know for certain.

Well, I am totally puzzled by this question since all cars do that. After all just changing the position of the gas pedal, either for faster or slower speeds, means that the car changes speed either faster or slower. Consequently, all vehicles immediately slow down when people take their foot off (not of) the gas pedal.This is normal and it is the way this should happen.

All Hondas do not slow down dramatically when you release the gas. If you were driving in "D3" , lower gear, on the transmission it will decelerate, versus in "D" , overdrive, it will coast. Regardless, I wouldn't buy from that dealer, because sounds like they will say anything for a sale.

yes, most hondas do that in fact all cars do that to a certain extent...its just that hondas do it more noticably. they have engine breaking which means it will slow down by itself without useing the brakes. granted it takes longer but still =) i own a 2006 accord and it does this as well, no worries
