Default Honda CR-Vs in trouble!

Uh oh, this ain't looking good.... CR-Vs catching fire in the US.

Damn, road reviews apart, this is rather disappointing... and just 24 hours after a wonderful drive that totally changed my perception of the car.

Drat!

Yup, this happend last year too. It's not the design thats at fault but the technicians that handle these cars.

If it was a fault with the design, then how come CR-Vs here aren't facing such problems? I mean, the CR-V is sold in so many countries.

Remember this?




This Lambo caught fire after a routine service.

But then again, until a detailed report is delivered, we can't really blame anyone.

Hey Rev, that article was written in Sept 2004. I'm sure the problem must have been diagnosed and delt with, by now. ANy idea what the real reason was?

Dude look at the pic closely how can u trust it? Its a total fake for sure... some photoshop wiz has edited it and made it look like the lambo caught fire... its pretty easy to spot that.

Well, check out the site and see for yourself. Once the page loads, click "next image" for the rest of the snaps, there are atleast 4-5 snaps there.
