Government investigates Honda vehicles that lose motive power while in motion

Honda CR-V and Honda HR-V vehicles may have rear differential problems that can cause the vehicles to lose motive power while driving.

Reuters reported that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened an investigation into about 1.7 million model year 2018-2022 Honda CR-V and HR-V SUVs.

NHTSA says it has received several early warning reporting (EWR) reports about Honda CR-V and HR-V SUVs that stopped moving forward while driving at highway speeds.

Reports claim that all-wheel drive variants of the SUVs experience rear differential lockups at speed, causing a driveshaft fracture and loss of power. A leaking differential seal has been identified as a potential culprit.

Honda confirmed its awareness of the probe and said it would cooperate with the investigation, providing information as needed. We don't know how or when the incidents that led to reports occurred, nor do we know how many reports Honda received. The NHTSA process requires automakers to submit reports of these kinds of incidents, and if it determines that a defect exists, a recall could be ordered.

If you are experiencing similar problems with your Honda CR-V or Honda HR-V vehicles, you don't have to wait for a recall and can claim for a refund today. Consider potential claims, such as:

  • Lemon Law Claim: Is your vehicle a constant source of frustration due to defects? Lemon laws provide recourse for consumers in such situations.
  • Breach of Express Warranty Claim: Manufacturers must uphold the promises made in their warranties. If they fail to do so, you may have grounds for this claim.
  • Magnuson-Moss Act Claim: Federal law safeguards consumers who purchase products with warranties, ensuring fairness and remedies for defects.
  • Deceptive Practices Claim: Misleading or deceptive actions by the manufacturer or dealer could entitle you to compensation under deceptive practices laws.
  • Breach of Implied Warranty Claim: Your vehicle should meet certain expectations of quality and performance, and if it doesn't, you may have a case under this claim.
