Honda Civic Owners Report Problems Related to Lane Departure Assist

Honda recall

Honda Civic owners have reported numerous problems related to the lane departure assist system. For example, according to the website, the owner of a 2022 Honda Civic reported having just over 600 miles on the vehicle. In a complaint logged on June 13, a vehicle owner said the lane centering/keeping feature began pulling the vehicle sharply to the right side of the lane causing the lane departure warning system to shake the steering wheel.

Another driver said in a complaint on March 16, 2022, that their 2022 Honda Civic pulled out of the lane instead of steering the vehicle in the lane. The driver said they provided Honda with video and picture evidence and that the automaker couldn’t do anything to fix the problem. This individual said they are no longer comfortable using those features and that they don’t feel safe driving the vehicle while those assist features are engaged.

How the Assist is Supposed to Work

According to Honda’s website, the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) is designed to alert the driver when the vehicle begins to drift from its lane. The Honda Lane Keeping Assist System features a sensor camera that is mounted behind the rearview mirror. This camera scans road marking and relays visual and tactile alerts to notify the driver if the vehicle starts to drift from its lane without signaling.

As soon as the vehicle starts to drift, a warning appears in the multi-information display and the steering wheel will vibrate to alert the driver. Honda’s website states that the LKAS “can also automatically provide corrective steering to help keep the car securely in the detected lane.” Honda allows drivers to deactivate the LKAS at any time. Adding Honda Sensing, which includes this feature, could cost consumers about $1,000.

Potential Class Action

If you are experiencing these or other problems with Honda assist, you may be able to file a class-action lawsuit against the automaker seeking compensation for your losses. When you purchase a vehicle or include a package of features that are meant to keep you safe, you expect it to work the way it is intended to work.

When such features fail to function as intended, it can cause consumers to feel not only frustrated but also less safe. Our class action attorneys are ready to help vehicle owners pursue their legal options.
