Recalls of due to the inability to secure a child seat properly or a hydraulic bar for the rear hatch that isn’t strong enough are relatively bad, but when we hear of issues with the suspension that could prove crash-worthy are very frightening.
Honda has announced a voluntary recall of 1 316 CR-V’s because it expected that the weld that holds the right front lower control arm could give way.

Thankfully, no accidents have been reported, so they haven’t been sued. Honda has started issuing the recall that will begin by mid-April.

"Over time and with extended use, an improper welding process used when manufacturing the control arm may allow the right front lower control arm to break at the weld. If the lower control arm breaks, vehicle handling could be affected, increasing the risk of a crash," the official statement reads.
