Honda Sticky Steering Wheel Issue Expanded to Other Models of Honda, Including CR-V and Acura Integra.
CaseyGerry is investigating additional allegations against car manufacturer, American Honda Motor Co., for failing to address a malfunction with the steering systems of 2023-2024 Acura Integra and HR-V, 2023-2024, or a 2022-2024 Honda CR-V and 2022-2023 Civic models.
In April 2023, CaseyGerry filed a lawsuit against the car manufacturer on behalf of owners and lessees of Honda Civic models manufactured between 2022 and 2023 for failure to inform drivers of the known defect in the steering system, termed, ‘Sticky Steering.’
This defect caused the vehicle’s steering wheel to tighten while the vehicle was in motion, sometimes at freeway speeds, making it difficult to control the vehicle. Numerous new complaints have been filed about the same issue in other Honda and Acura vehicles.
In March 2023, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that that the issue affected about 238,000 vehicles (Honda Civic Models 2022-2023).
In November 2023, after receiving more complaints related to Sticky Steering in additional models, and correlating the problem to 13 crashes, the NHTSA expanded the probe on malfunctioning steering systems in Honda vehicles to 532,535 vehicles.
According to Industry Intel, eleven of those crashes were due to loss of steering control, and two were a result of over-correction.
Honda, which manufactures the Honda models and its luxury line – Acura, acknowledges that the Sticky Steering defect may be due to the manufacturing process of the steering gear box, which may cause internal stress resulting in the degradation of the gears inside, and possible lack of continuous gear lubrication. Even more concerning, this issue may be worse in the winter months.
Dealerships have reported that there are no warning lights or alerts, and on inspection, cannot find diagnostic trouble codes. Honda has recommended that drivers replace the electronic power steering gearbox.
