Honda’s Parasitic Bluetooth Problem

A group of Acura owners are suing Honda because they believe problems with the car’s bluetooth are draining the batteries. Honda is being sued by Acura owners for bluetooth problems that can drain the car’s batteries.

The HandsFreeLink lawsuit was filed against Honda, parent organization of Acura and one of the first companies to use Bluetooth hands-free technology, calling it HandsFreeLink. The system allows a driver to “pair” a smartphone with the car, but according to the plaintiff, Honda should have warned consumers about the alleged defects that cause batteries to drain at alarming rates.

Chances are this isn’t only happening to Acura owners.
