2005 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #1

Light bulbs fail frequently (anywhere from approximately 2-3 months) for no apparent reason. Usually one light at a time. Constantly replacing bulbs both interior or exterior. Receive a ticket in NY state last week for a blown low beam headlight that had just been replaced last month. Last winter I replaced all fuses just in case, however, that has not stopped the problem. As stated by another owner - "this is a very well documented problem. And [obviously] a poor design issue. There is currently an outstanding recall for this problem for model years 2002-2004 (NHTSA campaign number: 12V136000). From my research, this problem seems to be at least as prevalent (if not more so) in the 2005 and 2006 model years. Please expand the recall to include those model years and force Honda to own up to what appears to be a poor design issue. This is a [major] safety issue." CRV is in the shop now getting a new air compressor ($2,500) - engine over heated due to the A/C unit in the passing lane on I-95 in Washington, DC on Monday. Not very happy with Honda right now.
