Honda reports receiving complaints of roll-away issues that can occur if the engine stalls when the vehicle's battery is in a "very low state of charge." Honda say it's possible for the CR-Z's electric motor to rotate in the wrong direction, causing the vehicle to slowly roll in an "unexpected direction" if the brakes aren't engaged. This, says Honda, could potentially lead to a crash.
Honda says a simple software update will fix this problem and the automaker will reportedly begin notifying owners of affected vehicles in late September. No injuries or deaths have been reported related to this recall.
