Honda Accord Hybrid electrical system recall - the fault could affect the petrol engine fitted to the hybrid Accord.

A total of 53 cars will be affected by a new recall of the recently released Honda Accord Sport Hybrid.

Being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the Honda Accord Hybrid electrical system recall was initiated after it was found that due to electrical ‘noise’ the vehicle may suddenly switch to fail-safe EV mode while cruising at highway speed.

The ACCC recall notice saying that this would cause 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.

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.

Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by mail by Honda Australia and owners will be instructed to take their vehicles to a Honda dealer to have the problem rectified.
