Honda is recalling 232,140 new Accord sedan and Insight hybrid models in the United States for buggy software that can disable the backup camera, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The recall affects every 2018 Accord sedan built through August 23, a total of 225,885 cars, and all 2019 Insight sedans built through August 22, which adds up to 6255 cars. When in reverse, the infotainment screen may go black or only show the parking guidance lines and not the actual image. No accidents or injuries have been reported to Honda. New cars on dealer lots should already be updated, since dealers received the new software earlier this month.

No one was willing to match it and they all claimed this dealer was playing games. It turns out this car has 107 miles on it, but I feel like I got a good deal. Is that too many miles for a brand new car to have? Did I really buy a used car?As you have found out the concept of a “new car” isn’t the same for every vehicle.

As of September 6, Honda said it had received at least 137 warranty claims and 11 reports from Honda field offices over the problem.
