Notes: Honda redesigned the CR-V for the 2007 model year to kick off the 3rd-generation of the popular SUV. Unfortunately that redesign came with malfunctioning door locksand shoddy tires that wear out fast.

2007 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

I bought a 2007 Honda CRV and was almost run over by it today. It appears there might be a defect with the car. I had pulled into my driveway and put the car in park. I left it on so that my 2 year old daughter would have air conditioning while I was unloading the car and putting things in the garage (this process took approx. 5 minutes). I then went to the back seat on the passenger side and got my daughter out of her car seat. I then shut the back door and opened the passenger door to get something out of the passenger seat and grab the car keys which were in the ignition. I took the keys out of the ignition and the car started rolling back wards dragging me with I was stuck behind the passenger side door. I was holding the keys in my hand and scrambling to make sure the car was in was and the car kept rolling. It eventually stopped after it jumped up on the curb, backed into several trees and hit a street sign. My question is how does this happen when the car is in park? I was holding the keys in my hand as the car was rolling backwards and I doubled check to make sure it was in park as I was getting dragged with the car. Although my leg is now badly bruised and my bumper is messed up; all in all I consider myself to be very lucky. Had my daughter started walking behind the car vs. Walking towards the garage she would have been killed. I'm now terrified of my car.. I also believe that Honda corporate should be notified of this issue to ensure it doesn't happen with someone else and result in a far worse outcome.
