4000 0 1. Transmission has double shift. When no brake is applied, shift from P to D and there is a light shift into drive, then 1 or so seconds later a much more noticible shift to Drive. 2. Torque steer upon starting out, and pull to right. 
5000 0 American Honda district manager came in to test drive vehicle and basically told me they all do that in regards to the double shift to drive. They cross rotated tires to get help with torque steer and vehicle pulling to the right.
