  1. Structural improvements for Small Overlap crash on 2015 model?

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    Hi Honda, Do you have any plans to enhance the structure of the current generation CR-V to improve performance in IIHS's small overlap crash test? It looks really bad and it's kinda of a deal breaker. It also shows disregard for the safety of your customers. Other manufacturers have gotten...

  9. Small shop opposed to dealership service

    Maintenance and Service

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
