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.
