In May 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against American Honda Motor Co. for allegedly misleadingly marketing Honda Sensing® in its 2017 CR-V vehicles as a feature that will help drivers avoid accidents or minimize the effects of collisions when, according to the plaintiffs, Honda Sensing makes vehicles more dangerous because a software defect causes the feature to regularly malfunction.

, Case No. 18-cv-4007, C. D. CA.)
