Chronology :

January 18, 2019
Honda submitted Foreign Recall Report 19F-012, informing NHTSA of a foreign recall in Canada for rear frame corrosion in certain 2007-2011 model year CR-Vs. After a market study of US market vehicles located in the Northeast region, Honda determined the rate of rear frame corrosion would not affect the structural integrity for the useful life of the vehicles due to fewer unpaved roads and lower sand/salt usage in the region as compared to Canada.

March 12, 2019
Honda received a market report on rear frame corrosion in the US market.

April 2019 – June 2019
Honda received additional claims for rear frame corrosion.

July 15, 2020
Honda repurchased a vehicle after observing rear frame corrosion and began to investigate the issue.

November 18, 2021
Honda expanded the investigation to focus on the accumulation of water/mud to the rear frame. Honda also continued a US market survey to investigate the potential of corrosion from de-icing agents.

March 6, 2023
Honda’s investigations confirmed the combination of water/mud accumulation to the rear frame and the increased use of de-icing agents in US salt belt states can cause rear frame corrosion rate equivalent to that for the recalled vehicles in Canada in 2019. Additionally, Honda identified the affected range of vehicles based on market occurrences and market survey results.

March 23, 2023
Honda determined that a defect related to motor vehicle safety existed and decided to conduct a safety recall.

As of March 23, 2023, Honda has received 61 customer complaints from the US market between September 2018 through March 2023, and no reports of fatalities or injuries related to this issue.
