Honda warns auto collision repair centers of potential ADAS problems

“Honda in a new position statement has warned collision repairers that aftermarket windshields and incorrect grilles might affect advanced driver assistance systems in models dating as far back as 2013.

The new statement, which replaces one published in November 2014 about 2013-15 models, reflects the growing use of ADAS since then.

‘The Honda Sensing application rate has more than doubled from 2016 to 2017 to more than 50,000 vehicles per month in the past year, and now is applied on 69 percent of 2018 model-year vehicles,’ Honda wrote in April.”
