2006 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #1

My rear gate was extremely hard to open & close. Brought to dealership & they advised that the hinges needed lubricating. The sprayed a yellow foam on the hinges. In the week that followed, I noticed that opening that rear gate became very easy, so much so that the rear gate "falls" out of place. In order to close the gate I need to lift up with all of my might & shove it closed. Looking closer at the hinges, they appear to be snapped. I brought it back to the dealership today (5/24/10) and they advised that the hinge was snapped from disintegrating, and that they had never seen anything like this. They sent me to the body shop they use and the man there also told me the same thing, the hinge has disintegrated. I now need to replace the hinges because the body shop told me this is very dangerous, the rear door could fall off while driving as the only thing holding this on is the rear gate handle lock and if the door fell off while driving it could not only kill someone driving behind me, but that it would be thousands of dollars to replace the whole rear door/gate. This is a 2006 Honda CR-V, how can hinges disintegrate in 4 years?!
