- ON, Canada eh?
My father in-law got a letter in the mail today from Honda telling him that their 2009 CRV might have an issue with the frame stiffeners and that it must be brought in for inspection. This will involve taking the rear of the vehicle apart to properly inspect it and that a courtesy vehicle will be provided while they have it for up to 2 days. If the vehicle is found to have this defect they will offer to purchase the vehicle back from him at fair market value considering the age, condition and options the vehicle has and will have a bonus added to this amount. He can choose to purchase a new or used vehicle at Honda or opt for reimbursement by cheque from Honda Canada. I hadn't heard about this on the '09 CRV's. Interesting... I thought I would post here for informational purposes for others that may have this model / year vehicle. It seems to affect 2007 - 2011 CRV's http://hondanews.ca/en/news/release...
Statement by Honda Canada Inc. Regarding Safety Recall: 2007-11 Honda CR-V Honda has voluntarily recalled approximately 83,953 2007-2011 CR-V vehicles in Canada to address potential excessive corrosion to the rear frame stiffener(s). On affected vehicles, one or both rear frame stiffener(s) may become excessively corroded over time. Such excessive corrosion may be more prevalent where a vehicle is regularly operated in regions where road de-icing salt is frequently used during the winter season. Although a certain amount of corrosion is expected to occur from everyday operation of the vehicle, excessive corrosion to the rear frame may result in frame stiffener perforation and, in extreme cases, cause the rear-trailing arm to separate from the vehicle's frame structure. A separated rear-trailing arm may cause the vehicle to be difficult to control, increasing the risk of a crash. Mailed notification to customers is expected to begin in late-January 2019. Additionally, owners of affected vehicles can immediately determine if their vehicles are included in this safety recall campaign by going to www.honda.ca/recalls, or by calling Honda Canada Customer Relations at 1-888-946-6329.
