Like the title said i wish it had a 12v or even a usb in the cargo area i had many cars with at least a 12v socket. I was trying to find a 12v for my vac and was surprised had to run a cable from the front to the rear. Uses like camping having a rear dash camera and even cleaning would be helpful to have one... about the only disappointment i have with this car. Oh well cant have everything.

Another weird 'marketing' item?? All Canadian CRV's have the rear and two front outlets.
The more I hear about the Canadian version of the 2017 CR-V, the more jealous I am of our fine neighbours to the north. It's almost worth taking a roadtrip from the NYC area to Niagara Falls, ON (or Mississauga or Hamilton or Toronto) so that I can buy the Canadian version. I'm sure that the import taxes/duties would add a significant amount of $$ to the price, but it would be the best way to "get all the goodies" that we Americans are being excluded from.

Ahhhh well... I'll try to be happy with my new Touring when I pick it up tomorrow from my local dealer.

I personally have never had a use for one in the back, and I still have a dash cam in the rear window.

I had no idea it was not standard equipment, even my 97 has it. I guess it was for the picnic table, and yes Honda designed all the 12v sockets to work only with key in place.

The parts/install is apparently the only way to get it.

Wonder what that costs as I am interested in getting it. Looks like a side panel, outlet, and hopefully only a plug in to the existing wiring.

Drill, aftermarket socket and butt splices would most likely do it.
