- Accords from 2013 to 2015,
- 2012 Civic hybrids,
- 2013 Acura ILX hybrids,
- Acura ILX from 2013 to 2015.
An additional recall covers 33,150 Canadian vehicles that have a software error causing the rear camera, turn signals and windshield wipers to malfunction. The software bug is in
- Honda Accord from 2018 to 2020,
