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.

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.

The speedometer is inaccurate. Bmw told me that they have a directive which states that it is normal for a speedometer to be off by up to 7mph. They told me it is impossible to recalibrate. I do not know my true speed which is dangerous and makes it difficult to know if i am driving within posted limits. It also adds false mileage to my vehicle as it always indicates a speed higher than i am actually maintaining.

I have had to replace my stock subaru battery from the dealer now four times. I drive it for work everyday and every so often it will not start up one morning. I do not leave my lights on, dome lights, or any other electrical components. It was stationary and would always happen the next morning, the battery would be drained and the dealership would replace just the battery as their fix. Months later, it would only happen again on a brand new battery from the dealer.

THE MAIN SCREEN, MCU, ON MY Tesla Model S, 2015 70D BEGAN REBOOTING DURING DRIVING. ON SATURDAY, JULY 4TH, 2020, THE CAR WOULD NOT START AT ALL. TESLA CUSTOMER SERVICE COACHED ME ON GETTING THE CAR TO WORK WITHOUT THE MAIN SCREEN, HOWEVER IT IS NOT SAFE. THE BRAKE LIGHTS, SIGNAL LIGHTS, REAR CAMERA DO NOT WORK, VERIFIED BY MY SPOUSE. FURTHER, MOST OF THE OTHER CONTROLS, E.G. DE-FOG, AIR CONDITIONING, ROOF, ETC, DO NOT WORK. THE RE-BOOTING OF THE SCREEN, WHERE IT WOULD BLANK OUT WITHOUT WARNING, AND EVENTUALLY COME BACK LATER, OCCURRED WHILE THE CAR WAS IN MOTION -- VERY DISTRACTING. AT THIS POINT, THE MAIN DISPLAY, OR MCU, IS "BRICKED" -- IT WON'T DISPLAY ANYTHING AT ALL, SO THAT HAS HAPPENED WHEN THE CAR IS STATIONARY.

The ac system has suddenly stopped working. Going into the hot summer months the ac system occasionally blows cold air but quickly switches to hot air when driving for extended periods (over 10 minutes). This is not only a huge inconvenience in 80+ degree weather, but also a safety concern with excessive heat circulating in the car in the hot summer months. I have tried to remedy the problem by checking freon compressor and condenser but nothing gives. This seems to be a major issue on 2016 manufacturing for civics and crv? S.

My horn randomly blows while parked. Vehicle is in park and the doors are shut and locked. No one around the vehicle. It has happened 4 times today. Once i get out to the vehicle to investigate the problem the horn stops blowing on its own. When it happens numerous times or continuously it runs the battery down.

The vehicle was parked and locked. When i unlocked the car and opened the door, the infotainment screen on the tesla will not boot up. As a result, the side rear view mirrors will not unfold and the rear view camera cannot be viewed. In addition, the climate cannot be adjusted. I attempted to reboot the infotainment system several times and locked & unlocked the car, but the infotainment screen did not turn on and the side mirrors will not unfold.
