Last weekend my son had an accident with my 2011 Honda CRV due to speed and road conditions and totalled
He hit a rock wall at a high rate of speed and rolled end for end.
AND WALKED AWAY!!
He is 6'6" and weighs 250lbs.
Only had scratchs and a bump on his head.
This was is destroyed but it saved my son's life.
He owns a 2002 Honda Civic and if he was in that he would be dead.
I am VERY pleased and happy with this car and how safe it really is.
He hit the wall so hard that the left front wheel, tire, axle, and shock came out in one piece.
Alot of people (me included) look at the "pretty" of a car and don't really think about the safety.
Well built car!! Thank you Honda!
Glad to hear your boy is well.
My son, son in law and I drive Accords (2010, 2012 and 2013s) and ours wives drive CR-Vs (all 2011s.) We are fortunate not to have had accidents with the any of the vehicles but we have been buying them because of Honda's reputation for safety and reliability.
