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.

I was stopped at a market and closed my door in a normal fashion.. the seat belt in the drivers side did not retract, and the metal buckle jammed in the locking mechanism and broke the lock. The door lock was stuck in the locked position. I drove my car to the airport Honda dealership in los angeles ca. Steering with my left hand and holding the door with my right hand, . an intake customer service rep by the name of [xxx], put a screw driver in the mechanism and unjammed the lock. I thought that the problem was resolved. My door would not lock. Due to financial hardships I could not afford the estimate of repairs at the time. I was told that I would be reimbursed after the inspection and repairs were made. I paid for the repairs in the amount of $307. After jumping through every hoop that Honda requested of me, I am now being told that I could not be reimbursed in cash, Honda was never concerned about my safety or if the seat belt would actually hold up in an accident. They have refused to acknowledge that this is a safety seat belt was replaced and deemed defective by a certified Honda mechanic.

My son got in the vehicle to take his wife to pick up her car and the seatbelt on the drivers side was locked. We tried everything we could think of and wasn't able to unlock it. Local body shop couldn't get it unlocked 1/28/2013 and said it would have to be replaced. Just wondering if there has been a recall on this particular vehicle, if so we weren't notified. 100,000 plus miles vehicle at shop at present time.

I was traveling approximately 25-30 mph when a woman driver failed to stop at a stop sign which caused me to hit the side of her car. My seatbelt retracted and save me, however the airbag did not deploy. There was however a scent of burning or a chemical reaction inside the cabin. I was under the impression that airbags will deploy at more than 10 mph upon impact. Clearly I was going faster than 10-15 mph. I am wondering if something was a miss.

Seatbelt came unbuckled during a collision. Insurance is going to fix, but I wanted this noted, as I see a recall in 2002 for this same issue.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CR-V. while driving approximately 40 mph, the antilock brake system engaged when the brake pedal was depressed. The contact rear ended another vehicle. As a result, the bumper completely detached from the front end of the vehicle and the radiator was damaged. The air bags failed to deploy. The contact sustained major injuries because the seat belt locked and would not unlatch. The passenger in the other vehicle was uninjured. A police report was filed and the vehicle was towed to the dealer. Prior to the failure, the contact heard a grinding sound while driving in reverse, but there was no failure at that time. The current and failure mileages were 14,000.
