The car is making a crackling noise from the dash broad. Took it to the dealership and the latter stated that honda is aware of the issue and that the crackling/sparkling noise come from the speakers. He further stated that honda is working with nhtsp on a fix. The noise accentuates when the driver steps on the brakes, but also when s/he speeds up.

2020 Honda ODYSSEY
Parts: UNKNOWN OR OTHERELECTRICAL SYSTEM

I purchased an odyssey and within less than 2 weeks, the infotainment system started displaying problems. The system gives a loud, crackling noise over the speakers. Sometimes the audio connection will cut out with varying error messages. Other times the entire screen will go black/turn off for several minutes, completing disabling the backup camera and other functions. When the audio goes out it will also hang up/disable any goes going over android auto or bluetooth. The audio display screen for android auto will sometimes freeze. I've already had my vehicle in the shop twice for this problem within a month and a week of owning the car and there's been no resolution yet. I've seen that there's a class action lawsuit for this exact problem in the 2018 and 2019 models, which apparently did not get rectified for 2020. The problem occurs randomly and sporadically, but does occur almost every single time i drive the car at some point or another. It's extremely distracting and not safe.

2018 Honda AFRICA TWIN
Parts: FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM
  • Date of Incident: Apr-13, 2020
  • Date complaint filed: 12:39 Jul-06, 2020

2018 honda africa twin adventure sports. At 1,750 miles on the motorcycle, i discovered a considerable amount of white sediment in gas tank due to welding slag in the manufacturing process. The sediment ended up clogging up the fuel filters and stoping the fuel pump. This resulted in the motorcycle being starved for fuel and not running. I was stranded on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere.

2019 Honda CLARITY PLUG-IN HYBRID
Parts: ENGINE
  • Date of Incident: Jul-04, 2020
  • Date complaint filed: 14:57 Jul-05, 2020

July 4, 2020 drove with our family of 2 babies on a local highway with a maximum speed of 50mph and traveling a round-trip distance of 52 miles. Outside temperatures were about 89℉. After driving for about 20 minutes, the engine would rev at a high rpm at 40mph. It could be heard and felt over the radio's music. Giving more gas didn't make the car drive faster. On the way home, about 40 minutes into the drive, the engine revved high again at 40mph, lost of power, and this time making the car's speed slow to 30mph because we were approaching a red light, luckily. This issue occurred before on july 27,2020 when my wife drove the car and conplained about it driving slow and engine revving loud. This car has only 1,884 miles on it and was bought in january 2020. Lemon law.
