A Japanese multinational company, Honda Motor Company, manufactures vehicles as well as motorcycles and power equipment. They were the first Japanese company to release a luxury brand of cars when Acura hit the market in 1986. A major producer of engines, Honda makes more than any other company in the world. Its engines have won the Indy 500 more times than any other manufacturer.
Even with such a strong reputation, Honda vehicles are still subject to error. If your Honda has undergone several reasonable repair attempts with no resolution, you may be entitled to compensation for your lemon vehicle. Both California State and Federal laws may supply the consumer with cash or a replacement. Residents of California’s Oakland Alameda County area should contact Kaufman & Kavicky, LLP for a consultation.
Common Honda Defects
Defects are common, even among the Honda brand. Some common ones include:
- Excessive oil consumption
- Airbags not deploying upon impact
- Transmission defects preventing car from shifting gears
- Early wear and tear on brakes
- Faulty HVAC systems
The largest recall in Honda’s history has been the Takata airbag recall with defective airbags releasing dangerous shrapnel during deployment. In 2019 they recalled certain CR-V models for welding issues between the fuel tank and vapor line. Several different models of vehicles made in 2018-2019, including the Accord, Acura NSX, Acura RDX, and Acura RLX, have been recalled for a low pressure fuel pump, which can lead the engine to stall while driving.
