Alleged Software Defects in Honda Sensing System Make CR-Vs More Dangerous to Drive

A [lawsuit][1] alleges that Honda’s technology that is aimed at making us safer, is doing the exact opposite.

Allegedly the systems regularly cause numerous warning messages to intermittently appear, and the CR-Vs fluctuate their highway speeds without warning when adaptive cruise control is set. In addition, drivers are allegedly alerted to hit the brakes immediately although no obstructions are present.

Honda Sensing is essentially four different systems – lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and collision mitigation braking assist.

One of the plaintiffs says the forward collision warning goes off even when the closest vehicle is 50 feet ahead. Other plaintiffs argue that the CR-Vs are sold with defective millimeter wave radar software.
