2012 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #5

I was stopped in traffic about 10 feet behind a vehicle and rear ended by a car going at least 40 - 50 mph. The crash caused my car to be pushed into the car in front of me. There was a small amount of damage to the front of my car, but there was extensive damage to the rear of my car, pushing the back seats into the front. My car was totaled. Not one airbag deployed, the drivers seat broke and my seatbelt did not restrain me after the initial impact causing me to be thrown into the passenger seat and knocking me out. There were no passengers in my car.

Seat belts on vehicle have insufficient tension, fail to retract fully when taken off. Seat belt latches then get caught between door and door frame, thus causing door to close on them and risk bending or breaking them. This has also caused an indentation in one inside door frame where the "door closed" button contacts, thus causing the car to think the door is still open when it is closed. Major safety hazard if the belt latches become bent or weakened by the stress of repeated door closings.

I turned left with the right-of-way at a stop light. Oncoming car failed to break, ran a red, and hit front passenger side wheel well, on-coming between 40 and 45 mph. Front and passenger side airbags deployed, driver side did not. Upon collision, I jolted forward and after we stopped moving, I noticed that the male buckle was no longer connected to the female buckle in my (driver-side) apparatus. I consider myself very lucky that I wasn't hurt, and am not under the impression that the belt is designed to operate that way.

My wife who was driving our Honda CRV 2012 had an accident on the freeway off ramp. When the car in front of her ran over some wire that was left on the road, the driver made a sudden stop. My wife was unable to stop in time and hit the vehicle with our Honda. There was considerable damage on both cars. Since the airbags did not deploy and the safety belt in our 2012 Honda CRV did not restrain my wife from hitting the steering wheel, she was seriously hurt. I hope other owners of the Honda CRV 2012 do not have this type of situation happen to them.
