2016-2022 Honda HR-V Sudden Acceleration/Deceleration and Braking Defect Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the 2016-2022 Honda HR-V for widely reported instances of sudden acceleration/deceleration as well as erratic braking. Specifically, owners report that their vehicles rapidly accelerate without warning at the same time that their brakes become unresponsive. These dangerous defects have, at times, even caused unassuming consumers to collide with other cars or structures. On the flip side and equally dangerous, consumers additionally report that their Honda HR-V’s are also prone to unexpectedly decelerate, often while driving on busy highways and intersections. This, too, puts the drivers of these defective vehicles at heightened risk of being involved in serious accidents. Consumer complaints on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) compound on these defects, describing a variety of braking issues, including this brake failure to respond and brake activation without and contrary to driver interference. In fact, in 2018, Honda recalled the HR-V model years 2016, 2018 and 2019, admitting that the vehicles had insufficient coating on rear brake caliper pistons, which reduced brake performance and increased risk of a crash.
