Water Leaks in CRV interior (no moonroof)
By williamj62 on
2009 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Noticed longterm musty smell in our one owner , one driver 2009 CRV. Found significant amount of water in spare tire compartment and front passenger floor board.
Car in excellent shape w/22k miles, no moonroof, no accidents with dealer installed roof rails.
Saw several similar complaints on internet. Took to dealer, cost $600 to "seal under rear bumper" and under windshiel lower cowl area. Hopefully the problem was addressed.
Was told seams were not sealed by factory.
Dealer had seen this problem before and was very through looking for the problem-not a dealer issue. Honda, however, would not cover the cost of any of this, although it is clearly a factory quality control problem.
Exterior design, cargo space.
Improvement in basic workmanship to prevent leaks in the interior. Sealed seams, leak prevention, more comfortable back seats.
