  • L. Hand vs. DENSO International America, Inc., et al.

    The plaintiff who sued claims the vehicles place occupants at risk of injuries and death because of the fuel pump failures. But owners also allegedly suffer additional consequences in the form of diminished vehicle values, out-of-pocket expenses and towing and rental car costs. The Canadian fuel pump recalls allegedly didn't include all the Honda vehicles affected by the DENSO pumps.

  • Atwal v. Denso Corporation, et al.

    The plaintiff who sued claims the vehicles place occupants at risk of injuries and death because of the fuel pump failures. But owners also allegedly suffer additional consequences in the form of diminished vehicle values, out-of-pocket expenses and towing and rental car costs. The Canadian fuel pump recalls allegedly didn't include all the Honda vehicles affected by the DENSO pumps.

  • Oliver, et al., v. Honda Motor Company Limited, et al

    A Honda fuel pump class action lawsuit was filed shortly after DENSO announced that 2-million fuel pumps would need to be recalled for impeller problems. The lawsuit pointed to a 2019 recall as evidence Honda knew about these fuel pump problems when selling the vehicles, but the 2019 recall is unrelated to the DENSO announcment.

  • Settled

    Kevin Davitt, et al. v. America Honda Motor Co., Inc., et al.,

    The plaintiffs alleged that the actuator, which is part of the door lock system, is defective and that Honda knew about the defect in CR-V models in years 2007 through 2011, but kept this information from Honda CR-V owners and lesses so the automaker would not have to cover the repair under the three-year warranty.

Latest Honda Problems Tied to Lawsuits

These problems have class-action lawsuits

  1. Denso Fuel Pump Failure

    The impellers inside of Denso branded fuel pumps may have been excessively exposed to a drying agent during manufacturing. This leads to them cracking, absorbing fuel, and deforming so badly that they stop sending fuel to the engine. Honda …

  2. Spontaneouly Cracked CR-V Windshields

    Honda says the strong fuel vapors are caused by excess fuel building up in the oil pan. The issue appears to be particularly bad in cold-weather climates. In a letter to consumers, Honda impressively skirted blame by placing it on the drive…

    The starter system in the 2013-2015 Honda Accord and Crosstour has a defect that makes starting the engine completely unreliable. The starter motor grinds and whines but the engine never starts. Honda denies any out-of-warranty claims on th…

  4. Oil Dilution in Honda's 1.5L Engine

    Excess fuel vapors in Honda’s 1.5-liter engine aren’t burning off and diluting the engine’s oil. This raises the oil level, triggers warning lights, creates a terrible smell, and brings into question the prospect of long-term damage caused …

    There are so many vibrations in the 2015-2016 CR-V, particularly at low speed or idle, that owners are starting to get sick. Honda has released a series of videos explaining the issue and a technical service bulletin outlining potential sol…

  1. Honda's batteries are such a drain.

    A new lawsuit suggests that the batteries in the 2017-2019 Accord and CR-V are simply too weak to run the car's electrical systems. Couple that with a parasitic drain and you've got yourself a killer combo if you're a big fan of curse words and walking to work.…

  2. A CR-V cracked windshield lawsuit has been dismissed after the plaintiff and Honda agreed to an unknown settlement outside of court.

    The lawsuit claims that windshields in the 5th generation CR-V are subject to stress cracks from excessive pressure from the frame. Honda's warranty is supposed to cover any broken glass that is the result of a defect but continually denies a defect exists.

    While dismissing the lawsuit is a blow to other owners experiencing the same problem, the action was dismissed without prejudice as to the claims of the members of the putative class other than Plaintiff which leaves future lawsuits in play.

  3. Honda wants to settle up a decade-old lawsuit about downshifting transmissions

    with an offer so low it's borderline insulting. A 2009 lawsuit says 5-speed automatic transmissions in some 2002-2004 Honda and Acura vehicles have a defect in the 3rd clutch. That defect can cause the transmission to suddenly downshift from 5th to 2nd gear. That's one way to reach your heart rate goal on your FitBit.

    Honda has continually denied the allegations but are ready to put this whole ordeal behind them with a ... checks notes ... $25 credit towards the future purcahse of Honda parts. And you must live in California. Oh I'm sorry, should I have told you to sit down first?…

  5. A 2018 CR-V owner has sued Honda for denying his cracked windshield warranty claim

    even though both the dealership warranty administrator and a 3rd party company agree that the crack was due to stress from a defect. It wasn't until the claim made it up to a local parts and service manager that the claim was denied.

    Honda's warranty program is supposed to repair broken or chipped window glass if it's the result of defects in materials or workmanship. But somehow they just keep insisting a defect doesn't exist. How odd.…

  6. Honda has been upfront about the 2015 CR-V’s vibration problems. A recently settled lawsuit is asking them to be upfront about the solution, too.

    The automaker has released a series of Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) with suggestions for removing the unwanted vibration. However, not every dealership acknowledges the problem or tells owners about the free repairs. That’s about to change as the settlement requires Honda to directly contact all potentially affected owners about the TSBs.…

  7. There’s a fix coming for rising oil levels in the CR-V and Civic, but your eligibility largely depends on where you live.

    Honda’s N60 service campaign will attempt to fix the oil dilution problem with software updates to the transmission control module and electronic fuel injection system. Additionally, drain plug washers and climate control units may be replaced.…
