What are the defects?

Due to electrical 'noise', the vehicle may suddenly switch to fail-safe EV mode while cruising at highway speed, causing the internal combustion engine to shut off with visual and audible warnings. Although there will be a sudden loss of power, the electric motor will provide power steering and braking. The maximum speed will be limited to approximately 60km/h.

What are the hazards?

Once in fail-safe EV mode, the vehicle will only be able to travel for a short period of time before the battery discharges, posing an accident hazard to the driver and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by mail in accordance with the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries Code of Practice and advised to take their vehicle to a Honda dealer.
