Our attorneys are investigating a Honda Sensing lawsuit after some CR-V and Accord drivers have reported that the sensing system in their Hondas cause them to automatically brake when there are no obstacles. If you’ve experienced this issue, please contact us.
Honda Sensing Lawsuit Filed
A Honda Sensing lawsuit alleges the driver-assist systems are defective in 2017 Honda CR-V models, including the EX, EX-L and the CR-V Touring.
The problems with the Honda Sensing system are proven, according to the lawsuit, by Honda issuing a technical service bulletin, TSB 17-064, telling Honda dealers that there was an internal issue with the sensors’ “millimeter wave radar.”
The Honda Sensing system is used not only in Honda’s collision mitigation braking system (CMBS), but also in its road-departure mitigation and advanced cruise control (ACC) systems, according to the lawsuit.
Drivers Report Honda Sensing Problems, But No Recall
CR-V drivers are reporting various issues with the Honda Sensing system. For example, one CR-V owner reports:
“Traveling on interestate at the speed limit the car suddenly braked… Fortunately there was no traffic in front, behind or beside. I got the car under control, turned all systems off and proceeded.”
Despite several complaints made to the NHTSA, Honda has yet to issue a recall of the Honda Sensing system.
