The 2022 Honda HR-V is a fun SUV that’s designed to provide a nimble ride with all of the top tech features. The automaker suggests that it provides “relentless excitement,” but the thrills are causing owners to visit the service center instead. Many people have started complaining about the glitchy electrical system and shoddy structure.

Problems with the Electrical System

The 2022 Honda HR-V is designed to provide reliable travel without costing as much as many other brands. However, in the process of keeping the price lower, the automaker must have forgotten to create a reliable electrical system.

One Edmunds review states, “Not crazy about my new 2022 Honda HRV LX.  Very choppy ride and noisy. Infotainment center is disappointing in that it will not notify me of text messages but keeps my phone from notifying me. I do like being able to listen to my music on my phone via Bluetooth.”

It appears that the “excitement” only extends to certain areas of the HR-V. When it comes to the electrical system, drivers are transported back in time to where their entire lives weren’t on the phone. Disconnecting someone from their phone for a drive to work could cause people to short-circuit. What is the world coming to?

Problems with the Structure

Honda hasn’t created the structure of the HR-V any better. It’s amazing that this Honda SUV can make it to its destination.

Another Edmunds review shows, “Had a Honda fit. This was suppose[d] to replace it. What an expensive joke. The lane watch tried to drive me into a wall. The driver’s side leg room is a joke. The center counsel is huge with no storage and just takes up space, cup holders are hard to reach, USB ports are hard to get and so is the 12 volt plug can’t be accessed from driver unless you reach over it. And worst of all the driver seat makes my legs go numb. The Fit was a 12 plus the HR-V 2022 is a 1. I have had it 1 month and hoping to get rid of it if it doesn’t cost me too much. My advice don’t bother with it.”

If the driver above was happier with the Fit than the new HR-V, there is clearly something wrong. Obviously, this customer has some delusions alone by rating the Fit above a “10.” With this scale in place, any other car should have easily been about to achieve a higher score, but the HR-V has gone down pitifully to the bottom. The tagline should be something along the lines of “relentless complaints” instead.

    I financed the Honda H-RV on Aug 16th, 2022. On Oct 3rd, 2022, I was going down a hill as I tried to apply the brakes the brake pedal became soft. Mind you, I’m going down a hill catching speed and pedal to the metal foot on the break. As I start to panic and trying to think fast, the car stalled and comes to a stop. I shut the engine off and remove the keys from the starter. I then tow it to the Honda dealer I purchased it from. Just to tell me there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the car. Now I’m stuck with a painful lower back and a dangerous vehicle. (I went to the hospital and my disc from my spine are inflamed.) Feel free to email me some advice

    I agree with everyone about the electrical system on the 2022 Honda HRV. I want legal representation for this. Since I got the car in april or march of this year 2022, there’s already 2 big major electrical issues, the odometer and the bluetooth system and the screen keeps resetting itself multiple times weekly. I am disappointed as this was one of my dream car.

    Bought my 2022 Honda HR-V LX last March 2022. The engine is noisy and feels like the power is not enough upon acceleration. HELP!
