 Description of the problemOn a sunny, clear, dry day and on a paved and marked two lane country road, the car would not let me turn to the right on a swtichback turn. I was travelling at approximately 25 -30 mph with my foot lightly on the accelerator to maintain speed. The switchback was to the right and upward and it was around 14:00. Basically the steering wheel locked and remained locked forcing the car into the opposite lane of traffic until i brought the car to a full stop at which point the steering wheel unlocked and i could turn the vehicle to the right and follow the road back to the right on its course. The elapsed time was probably 3-4 seconds and fortunately there was no oncoming traffic or vehicles behind us. The lane departure warning system was on. The "main" button for the adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist was on but neither of these systems were engaged. The sensors and camera on the front did not have anything blocking them other than what you might expect after driving a car in normal driving conditions without a wash for 4-5 days. The problem has not re-occurred since this one time event but we also have not driven the car on switchback roads since and don't normally do so. The car had approximately 1500 miles on it. There was no damage to the car and nothing to show so there are no pictures included with this report. I have reported this issue to honda directly as well. I
