I don't know what's going on with Honda, but it's not as used to be.
Build quality is definitely not up to par.
Bought a brand new CR-V a year ago.
After the first rain, it had a spare tire wheel compartment full of water.
It took dealership 3 tries and an external shop to fix leaking problems. Battery died when weather hit below 0.
This should not happen on a 10 months old car.
Wheel wells have no protective covers.
Dealership told me it was done by design and the bare metal is treated for rust corrosion, but rust corrosion doesn't protect from stones chipping at the paint.
And to top it off, all lug nuts are rusted.
Car is 1 year old!!!
Very, very disappointed!
Better wheel well protection.
Use better quality lug nuts.
Better quality control for water leaks.
