2012 honda cr-v Reviews and News

2012 Honda CR-V
2012 Honda CR-V
A brand-new CR-V is set to debut for the 2012 model year. There were few details available at press time, but the concept car pictured at left previews the styling of the new CR-V. Until that car goes on sale at the end of the year, buyers will have to settle for the 2011 CR-V, which is a pretty good vehicle in its own right, offering versatility, spaciousness, and ease of use. The current CR-V has a 180-hp four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and is available with four-wheel drive. Clever packaging includes an optional dual-deck shelf that splits the commodious cargo bay horizontally and a sliding rear seat that folds flat in three sections instead of the typical two. The car-based CR-V handles and brakes well, and it has a low step-in height for easy entry. Still, the CR-V is growing old: it could likely get better fuel economy with a more efficient engine and a six-speed automatic, and it doesn't offer some of the modern conveniences, such as Bluetooth and navigation, except in the top trim level. At least one of those shortcomings will be addressed with the 2012 model, as we do know that a more powerful 2.5-liter four-cylinder will be available.
2012 Honda CRV Front Three Quarter View
The Honda CR-V managed to outsell the Ford Escape by less than 900 units in October, taking the compact crossover crown with 20,295 examples sold. Bumped down to second, the Escape was good for 19,832 units sold, while the Chevrolet Equinox remained steady with the bronze, selling 15,387 CUVS.
2012 Honda CR V Side View
The Ford Escape has been steadily gaining ground on the Honda CR-V, and August 2012 sales are no different. Last month, the Escape took a big jump toward year-to-date compact crossover sales leadership.
2013 Honda CR V EX L Front View
Admittedly, there aren’t any drastic departures in store for the 2013 Honda CR-V, 2013 Honda Odyssey, and 2013 Honda Pilot – but there are a few small revisions in both content and pricing.
2012 Honda Civic EX L Sedan Right Side View
Japan’s earthquake and tsunami hindered Honda’s ability to manufacture and sell cars in North America, but devoid of those restrictions, Honda is on-track to have an impressive 2012. So much so, in fact, that the company reportedly upped its sales target by more than one quarter after seeing just how quickly its Civic and CR-V models have flown off dealer lots.
2013 Ford Escape Side View
The Ford Escape takes the compact crossover crown once again, beating the Honda CR-V for a second month in a row. While the Escape sold better than the CR-V, sales were actually down compared to July 2011. The Chevy Equinox gave the CR-V a run for its money last month, coming in a close third.

Summary

Consequences
A misprinted label could lead to improper vehicle loading. Improper loading could result in a tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

Summary
Honda is recalling certain model year 2012 Honda CR-V and model year 2013 Acura ILX vehicles. If the manual or power door lock is activated while an interior front door handle is being operated by an occupant, the cable connecting the interior door handle to the door latch mechanism may become loose and move out of position. There is a possibility that the cable can move far enough out of position to prevent the door from properly latching.
Consequences
If the door is not fully latched, the door may open while driving or in a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury to the vehicle occupants.
Remedy
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front door latch assemblies in the affected vehicles, free of charge. Additionally, the interior front door handles in certain Honda CR-Vs will also be replaced, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, August 16, 2012. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.

Summary
Honda is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 CR-V, Odyssey, and model year 2013 Acura RDX vehicles. During sub-freezing temperatures, the brake-shift interlock blocking mechanism may become slow and allow the gear selector to be moved from the Park position without pressing the brake pedal. As such, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention."
Consequences
If the gear selector is moved from the park position without pressing the brake pedal it can allow the vehicle to roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Honda will notify owners and instruct them to take their vehicle to a Honda or Acura dealer. The dealer will install an updated brake shift interlock blocking mechanism free of charge. The recall began on May 13, 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's campaign recall numbers are S96, S97, and S98.
