Honda is recalling approximately 232,000 model-year 2018 Accord sedans and model-year 2019 Insight hybrids due to issues with the backup camera. The backup camera center display may not function properly and show what is actually behind the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Honda will begin notifying owners on Nov. 5. Owners can call Honda at 888-234-2138 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will reprogram the display audio unit software.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the recall problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
