Honda Recalls 1.4 Million Vehicles For Software Issues

Some of these recalls are due to corrosion where salt is used. Honda owners will begin to receive notices next month


  • Other issues include faulty driveshafts, window switches, and more.

  • Recalls include Accord, Insight, CR-V, Fit, ILX, and more.


Most of these issues are directly linked to safety which is why Honda will be sending out recall notices shortly. More than 1.4 million Honda vehicles are affected by these numerous recalls, ranging from faulty software, corrosion, and water infiltration.

The biggest recall involves 737,000 Honda Accords (from 2018 to 2020) and Insights (2019-2020). These cars suffer from a programming flaw that may cause the rear camera, turn signals, and wipers to malfunction.

One issue is being recalled for a second time. Roughly 268,000 Honda CR-V SUVs (from 2002 to 2006) were initially recalled back in October of 2012 however the recommended repairs of the time did not work. The issue is that water can get into an open driver’s window and cause the window switches to short.

The final recall, according to ABC News, involves 430,000 Honda Civic Hybrids (2012), Fit (2007-2014), Acura ILX (2013-2015), and Honda Accord (2013-2015). The issue involves corroded driveshafts that could break caused by road salt.

Most of the owners of these vehicles will receive notices between January and February.
