First thing I'd try is an air filter change, some Chevron injector cleaner, and premium (92 or 93 octane) gas. Also check the transmission! I'm assuming it's an automatic, and Hondas with even slightly low tranny fluid levels get a little grumpy. They get even more grumpy if the filter needs changing and the fluid is dirty or burned.
