Honda and Toyota recall over 131,000 cars, blame hardware and software

The Honda and Toyota recalls affect three models made between 2018 and 2022

Honda and Toyota have made separate recalls on over 131,000 vehicles due to varying issues with hardware and software.

The Honda and Toyota recalls affect three models of vehicles made between 2018 and 2022. As always, consumers can check if their vehicle is impacted by going to the NHTSA’s website and typing in their vehicle identification number. Repairs or updates are typically provided by authorized dealers at no cost to the consumer.

According to Honda’s NHTSA filings, 2018-2020 Honda Fit Hatchbacks and 2019-2022 Honda HR-V SUVs with key ignitions have hardware issues which can cause the vehicle’s back-up camera to fail. The automaker believes that the display circuits used in these models are defective. The recall affects 114,686 cars in the U.S.

In Toyota’s NHTSA report, certain 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime hybrid SUVs have a software issue which can result in a sudden loss of power. The automaker told the agency that accelerating the vehicles in cold weather could drop voltage levels, causing the car’s control unit to unnecessarily shut down. The recall only extends to 16,679 models in the U.S.

The Honda and Toyota recalls highlight the auto industry’s ongoing struggle with quality assurance. As complicated features and technology become more accessible, so too will the risks posed to consumers by poor manufacturing and coding increase. However, more recalls means more drivers in search of quality service, creating abundant opportunities for auto retailers to earn the trust and loyalty of new clients. This is why it is essential for storeowners to stay up to date on recalls with information from their suppliers and regulatory departments.
