Recent Honda Complaints and Recalls
In recent years, Honda has undergone a few recalls from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for a variety of reasons. Those reasons include:
- Battery sensor may short. This could lead to a fire.
- Connecting rod bolts may be improperly torqued. This could cause the engine to stall, which may lead to a crash. The added heat may also present a fire hazard.
- Replacement engine assembled with wrong pistons. This could cause the engine to stall suddenly, increasing the risk of a crash.
- Driver side airbag inflator may rupture. This could spray metal fragments that could injure passengers in a collision.
- Fuel supply pipe may disconnect and leak. This could both increase the risk of a fire and cause the engine to stall.
- Incorrect certification label. If drivers doesn’t know how much weight the vehicle can hold, they may overload it. This could lead to a crash.

Report your problem with your Honda within the original warranty period and you will have the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act working in your favor. This federal law was designed to protect consumers from unethical warranty practices. If a dealership failed to fix a warrantable defect in your Honda within three or more attempts and/or your vehicle has been twenty or more cumulative days out of service, you may have a viable suit against the manufacturer for breach of warranty.
You may also have state lemon laws on your side. Like the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, these laws exist to extend extra protection to you, the consumer.
Don’t drive your Honda back and forth to the dealership for repairs. Robison Lemon Law Group LLC can help you navigate both the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and lemon laws to ensure you receive the justice you deserve.
