Model News

Honda's compact, carlike CR-V sport-utility vehicle has been completely redesigned for 2007. It's slightly wider than before, and ground clearance is also a few inches lower because the spare tire is no longer hanging off a side-hinged rear door (a conventional top-hinged hatch is now standard). Cargo space is also increased slightly, but new features like the dual-deck cargo shelf improve convenience. The CR-V still only offers a four-cylinder engine--though the engine gets a 10-hp boost and automatic transmission is now standard--and the Real Time 4WD system has been reworked for improved torque transfer to the rear wheels.

Model Highlights

A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and five-speed automatic transmission is the only powertrain combination offered on the 2007 Honda CR-V; the five-speed manual previously standard has been discontinued.

The engine makes 166 horsepower and 161 lb-ft of torque. That's 10 horsepower more than last year's model, and the engine has been tuned to be more responsive at lower revs. A Drive-by-Wire throttle control matches with the transmission for better drivability on hills. Front-wheel drive is standard on the CR-V; the optional Real Time 4WD system is tuned for on-road driving, with power going to the front wheels during most driving but with some sent to the rear wheels as needed on slippery surfaces.

With a four-wheel independent suspension (MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link setup in back), plus a more rigid body structure, the new CR-V has improved handling, while the use of more sound-absorption materials helps make the interior quieter, according to Honda.

The CR-V continues with two rows of seating and space for five, but the interior has been completely redesigned, with more standard equipment, more storage compartments, and clever features like a retractable center tray table, dual gloveboxes, and various cupholders.

Three trim levels are available: LX, EX, and EX-L. There's no stripped-down base model; the LX includes a wide range of standard equipment like air conditioning, a CD sound system with MP3 compatibility and auxiliary input jack, tilt/telescope steering adjustment, and power windows, locks, and mirrors. The EX adds a moonroof, chrome trim, a dual-deck cargo shelf, upgraded audio with six speakers and a six-disc changer, among other additional equipment, while the top EX-L brings leather upholstery and a top audio system that has XM Satellite Radio compatibility and a subwoofer. A navigation system with voice recognition and a rear-view camera is available only on the EX-L.

On EX and EX-L models, a dual-deck cargo shelf can hold up to 20 pounds of cargo on top while leaving space for full-size grocery bags on the bottom. The back seat is split 60/40 and can fold forward as needed to expand the cargo floor.

The CR-V adopts Honda's ACE Body Structure, which improves frontal crash performance and allows better crash compatibility with vehicles of varying sizes. Front-seat side air bags and full-length side-curtain bags are standard on all CR-Vs, along with active head restraints. Vehicle Stability Assist and four-channel anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution are standard on all CR-V models as well.

Value Writeup

The 2007 Honda CR-V boasts improved ride and handling, along with a quieter, more comfortable interior. As before, the CR-V is not oriented toward off-road ability. While other competitors offer a V6 option, the CR-V only has a four-cylinder, but the powertrain has impressive smoothness and fuel economy.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, 2011-2015 CR-Z, 2010-2014 FCX, and Insight, 2009-2013 Fit, 2013-2014 Fit EV, 2007-2014 Ridgeline, 2013-2016 Acura ILX, 2013-2014 Acura ILX Hybrid, 2007-2016 RDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2009-2014 Acura TL, and 2010-2013 Acura ZDX vehicles. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the inflator, free of charge. Remedy parts are expected to be available in Summer 2016. Interim notices will be mailed to owners during March 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are JY0, JY1, and JY2.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
