On Friday, September 28th, 2018, Honda made a massive announcement to consumers: 2018 Accords and 2019 Insight Hybrids were being recalled. Over 232,000 vehicles are affected.
The Honda models are being recalled for malfunctioning technology in the rear camera display. While no reports of injury have been made, Honda is urging anyone who has purchased 2018 Accords and 2019 Insight Hybrids to find a dealer.
United States consumers are not the only consumers affected as “Honda is recalling 14,000 vehicles in Canada, more than 6,000 vehicles in Germany and nearly 3,000 in South Korea for the same problem.”
According to CNBC, the “rear camera display does not show the images properly when the driver shifts into rear in the affected vehicles, a problem that can be dangerous and does not comply with U.S. requirements.”
Updates for the car’s camera will be updated free of charge.
If you have a 2018 Honda Accord or 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid, please get your vehicle seen by a profession immediately.
