A lawsuit alleges that Honda's technology that is aimed at making us safer, is doing the exact opposite. Honda Sensing is essentially four different systems – lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and collision mitigation braking assist. But 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.

More About the Lawsuit

  • In addition, drivers are allegedly alerted to hit the brakes immediately although no obstructions are present.
  • 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.
