1998 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

The latch on the gate that locks the glass back window into place is covered in a white plastic that falls apart from sun exposure. This causes the metal part mounted in the glass window that you push into the latch on the gate to rattle. The glass window closes but the whole glass is lose, not tight. On the interstate this starts the glass to rattle and I am afraid of what will happen if I have to slam my brakes on at higher speeds since the glass is not secure. I talked with a independent mechanic and he said that this was the same problem that Ford had with the Explorer that caused them to be recalled. I though I should bring it your attention because that recall talked about how the glass shattered and covered the people in the car with glass fragments while driving. Please check into this. Unless you really pay attention, you wouldn't notice the plastic falling off the locking device and that the window is not secure.
