Well, I was told they will produce it about April 1st. Pick up day middle of April.
I live central of NJ. I got my crv from one of the biggest honda dealer in USA - Hamilton Honda.
They provide free lifetime oil change and car wash.
My only biggest concern is "dead battery" issue. The more I am reading about it the more scary it is. I changed my battery in my cx5 after 55k.
I read the stories here that is dead couple times a month. Not good.

Welcome to the forum. I hope the CRV serves you better than the CX5 did.

Welcome! I’m not trying to scare you away. Battery and the fuel dilution is your biggest concern. There’s still no true fix to the fuel dilution issue and there may not be until the next redesign of the drivetrain.

You may want to hold off on the purchase unless you’re leasing the car. Honda claim fuel dilution is not a concern but if it’s severe enough it can lead to engine failures because of lack of lubrications In the engine oil. Also this being a direct injection with no secondary fuel injection, carbon build up on the back of the intake valves can be a concern too.

I already paid 2k deposit. I guess I can't do anything at this point.

Sorry for double post.

So basically if I go straight to dealer and ask them for refund it's not gonna happen, right?
They will give you a hard time no matter what. Know your right before you go in there. Deposit on a product you never take delivery is always refundable even though the sale contract states non-refundable.

I would have to do more research about it.
Thx
