Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

The driver's frontal air bag inflator may be susceptible to moisture intrusion, which over time could cause the inflator to rupture. If this happens, it would spray metal fragments upon deployment. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Automatic Transmission Bearing Failure

Certain driving styles can result in a broken outer race of the secondary shaft bearing inside the automatic transmission. A broken outer race may cause abnormal noise, the Check Engine Light to turn on, and contact between the transmission idle gear and an electronic sensor housing to occur. This could result in a short circuit, causing the engine to stall. Also, pieces of the outer race or ball bearing may become lodged in the parking pawl, resulting in the vehicle rolling after the driver has placed the shifter in the Park position. Dealers will update the transmission control module software to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is R89.

2010 Honda CR-V Reviews

we love our 2010 CR-V, we bought it new and has 68k miles, so far no mechanical problems, just a dead battery issue once, which was weird, because the were no warnings and we were driving it, then we stopped for gas and after it would not start, needed a jump start, replaced the battery and no problems since.

It appears to have poor welding issues on the body frame and other noises have been related to the exhaust system (although I have a new noise that is under the car and may still be related to the exhaust...
I absolutely love my 2010 Honda CRV. It drives smoothly and is comfortable all around; however, it failed to start twice yesterday, so I'm taking it back to the dealer tomorrow for a checkup.
