I stomped on it at one point pulling out from a service area in traffic. The car protested.
I'm starting wonder if I might have exceeded the redline when I stomped it.  The motor made a bad sound. The CVT never really goes much above 2500 rpm in normal driving but I noticed is goes much higher if you get aggressive.

Camp or anyone... If I did exceed redline for a few seconds, how bad is that?
There is no way you exceeded the redline. Your Honda has a rev limiter  - probably one that shuts off the fuel injectors.

Re: Bought my last Honda.

Well then not sure what that sound was.

I skied Belle today.  Mileage on the way up (digital) was just above 30.  On the way back, I never really realized it, it's gradually down almost all the way.  Digital was showing over 40 mpg when I got to 87.  I ended up just over 35 when I got home.  I was moving quickly, in the 70s, but not pressing too hard.
