The symptoms of this malfunction described in the recall seem very similar to that which was described by a new owner whose wife was trying out the hill holder clutch upon driving the car home from the dealer and suggested that car accelerated in reverse while she tried to disengage the clutch.
At the time, the consensus on this forum was that the car simply rolling down hill from gravity might have felt like it was accelerating in reverse, but the strange description of this malfunction suggests that just such a thing could have been initiated by the car.
Looks like the user only ever posted this, though, so he's probably not around to see the resolution. I think you are right about the symptom. Obvioulsy not an isolated incident, though, or it would never have made a recall.
I do remember that poster too! I thought of them the moment I read the first post. Good job on finding the original thread!
That blows. The last time I was at the dealership they had mentioned something about having me come in for something to do with the A/C that Honda had issued to CRZ owners. That was months ago, haven't heard anything since.
