Wow, never noticed this on our 2018 as we never have had 5 people in the vehicle.Honda reversed the left side clip bundle in their design. YIt is a design flaw. You cannot safely buckle three people in the rear without twisting and overlapping the belt. There is a class action lawsuit pending. All 2017-2019 CR-Vs are like this. Do not use all three belts at the same time. Unsafe!!!
Be aware that the center and left buckle in the back seat of the 2017 Honda CR-V are in reverse making it a 4-passenger vehicleAfter conversations with Honda Motor Corporation we found that the 2017 Honda CR-V is really a 4-passenger instead of 5-passenger vehicle. Evidently this design was intentional.procarseatsafety.com
