(AbsoluteNews.com) – In December 2021, Honda recalled thousands of its 2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid and 2021 Acura RDX models over a driveshaft issue. The vehicles were in danger of rolling away if the parking brake wasn’t set because of an issue that could result from the front driveshaft failing prematurely. Just a few months later, the company might have to recall more than a million vehicles over another problem.
According to reports, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched an investigation into Honda over alleged problems with the braking system on some models. On February 24, the agency revealed it had received 278 consumer complaints about 2018 and 2019 Accords and 2017-2019 CR-V SUVs stopping for no reason because of a problem with the automatic emergency braking system. That’s the system that applies the brakes on its own if there is something in the way of the vehicle and the driver isn’t paying attention.

The federal agency is looking into how bad the problem is and exactly how many vehicles it’s impacting, but it could be over 1.7 million cars. Six of the current complaints reportedly resulted in collisions with injuries. No fatalities were reported and Honda has not responded to questions. A recall could be imminent.
