Honda HR-V (2015 – 2018)

Published on 31 January 2020

During repeated acceleration/deceleration, the emissions control system in the diesel Engine Control Unit (ECU) is unable to prevent sulfur accumulation inside the catalyst due to lack of robustness of the engine control software. This reduces the purification performance of nitrogen oxides (NOx). Therefore, it does not satisfy the regulatory requirement for emissions level.

The Honda HR-V models affected by this recall were manufactured between 2 February 2015 and 23 May 2018.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Honda dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

How to contact your dealer

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle


UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
