Honda Recalls 230,000 Cars to Fix Backup Camera

The automaker says bad software causes this safety feature to fail

Honda is recalling 232,140 of its 2018 Accord sedans and 2019 Insight hybrid sedans because faulty software may cause the backup cameras to fail, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The automaker says that there have been no reports of crashes or injuries because of this problem. Honda also said it discovered the problem after owners complained, and the automaker said it worked with its supplier to track down the problem.

Consumer Reports was an early and vocal supporter of mandating backup cameras on all cars. All vehicles sold in the U.S. that were built after May 1, 2018, are required to have a camera built in.
