The rear seat belt anchor is reversed on the center buckle. The anchor is on the center passenger's left side and the latch on their right. The rear driver's side passenger's latch is on their right, but on the far right side of the anchor. When a passenger or car seat is belted into the center seat, the seat belts obstruct each other, and when forced to latch, appear quite dangerous.

A couple of weeks ago, on February 16th or 17th I struggled to put my seatbelt on. This was the first I had seen of any issues with my seatbelt. As I investigated for that I could see that both the seatbelts in the back had been affected and so had the passenger seat belt. I booked an appointment with Honda dealership scott robinson in torrance and was met by a very hostile member of stuff who took a look around my car (no testing or investigations) and then quoted $1387 for parts and $800 for labor. The employee proceeded, without having done any investigations, that either my son (referring to autistic behaviors) or the dog damaged my seatbelts. I told him not to equate autism with vandalism, my son is autistic but he is not a savage also I challenge any human to chew through seatbelts. The employee then proceeded to claim he knew all about autism and could criticize as he pleased. I understand scott robinson are a private dealership but I will say the behavior of their staff is appalling. I decided it would be best I take my car and leave as I felt that the lack of investigation and ignoring the fact that there is a warranty on the seatbelts topped with insulting my disabled son was enough for me to be there anymore. I hope Honda will help me with this and investigate the belt feed as it seems that the issue is internal rather than external. Something inside the belt feed is catching or grazing that is has worn the belt down into fraying.

I had the driver's air bag replaced under recall. Received recall notice on passenger air bag and had it replace. After that recall, the srs warning light came on and won't go off. Had Honda dealer check it and was told that it's the driver's side sensor in the seat belt clip. Cost would be over $800. 00 to fix. If srs light is on air bag won't deploy. This is a safety issue and should have a recall on it since the srs light was not causing a problem until the passenger air bag was replaced. Car has about 82,000 miles on it.

I purchased this Cr-v new from the Honda dealership in sarassota, FL in Feb 2017. O/s srs light keeps coming on. It is an intermittent problem. When it comes on, it stays on until the car is turned off. This has been going on for at least 3 months. I had started taking pictures of the actual meter panel speedometer with the o/s srs light on every day to show the frequency and magnitude of this issue. On 11/11/17, stored codes were deleted a few times at bradenton, FL dealership with no success. "system operating as designed" is what I was told by Honda dealership. On 11/13 - 11/21/17, o/s srs light came on after codes cleared. Returned to Honda dealership in bradenton, FL. They checked pin fit at air bag connector and srs unit. Continuity was confirmed. No mouse or water damage. Driver's seat air bag was replaced per Honda tech line. The dealership was in possession of our Cr-v during these dates. On 12/13/17, o/s srs light keeps coming on. The bradenton, FL dealership. Scanned for srs codes (same as before, 'b0020-13"), open or increased resistance on the left side. Reviewed data withe tech line and they had dealership replace the srs control unit. Initialized seat weight sensor to verify repair was completed. Tech drove vehicle 85 miles to confirm repair was completed. Tech line ref#4044223 on 12/14/17 the o/s srs light came on still. Due to our vacation from sarasota, FL to ohio for christmas, the bradenton Honda dealership could not provide a loaner for any out of state driving. So, we drove this crv to ohio with the o/s srs light on for 95% of our 2600 mile trip. Negotiated with am Honda and bradenton, FL dealership to bring Cr-v back on 1/8/18. A Honda 'technician specialist' is being flown in from torrence, CA to fix it. My wife and I retired from Honda of America mfg inc with 50 combined years of manufacturing service building Hondas.

Two seat belts in back seat have frayed for unknown reason. The seat behind the driver has completely frayed. The middle seat was originally frayed about half inch and then, after bringing it to Hondas attention, it has frayed at another spot almost completely. Honda does not want to call it a defect and wants to call it wear and tear. This vehicle is only used for work commute and only has 16k miles. There havent been any passengers in the rear for 95% of those miles. Homda refuses to inspect the car further and has only relied in phitos that were taken at the dealership to make their decision in saying its not a defect and therefore will not repair it under warranty.

The left rear and center rear seat belt buckles, are opposite of what they should be. This arrangement makes it impossible for the left rear passenger, to buckle up if the center seat person is buckled in, or a car seat is in place. Contacted my Honda service department and they forwarded my complaint to the district representative, his response was he is aware of the issue but there is no fix for the problem. I did some research and found that the Acura rdx is the same platform as the Honda Cr-v. So I visited the nearest Acura dealership, the seat belt buckle arrangement was correct on that Acura rdx. Looks like the anchor point and the buckles are exactly the same as the ones that are in my Honda Cr-v. Would be willing to bet that the Acura seat belt assembly would solve the rear seat belt issue on these Honda's, the assembly is only $66. 00! why should I have to do that when it wasn't my mistake in designing it.

The contact owns a 2017 Honda Cr-v. The contact stated the seat belts for the rear middle and left passenger seats were switched, which made it difficult for the passengers to buckle their seat belts when the middle seat was occupied, especially by a safety seat. The contact took the vehicle to the ralph schomp Honda dealer where it was determined that the seat belts were anchored down, which prevented the dealer from switching the seat belt buckles. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and informed the contact that the placement of the seat belts was approved by NHTSA safety standards and could not be altered. The manufacturer opened case number: 06136375. The approximate failure mileage was 293.

Where left rear passenger attaches seat belt & where center rear passenger attaches seatbelt from headliner, the fasteners in the seat are switched. If center passenger buckles up first or if carseat is in center position it is nearly impossible for left rear passenger to buckle up or unbuckle. This is due to the attachment points being switched when designed & or manufactured. Honda dealer says the connections are in proper location & belt is operating as designed. This will most likely cause one of five passengers in this vehicle to not be able to buckle up or unbuckle in an emergency.

No " takata recall?" for my 2004 Honda crv w/ faulty driver + passenger airbags?! this car should definately be on that recall list but is not!! why? ! I purchased my 2004 only 9 months ago from a dealer. I was traveling on a highway approaching a red light going approx 35- 40 mph when my 2004 Honda crv hit the rear of another car. My driver airbag never opened to protect me yet my passenger airbag inflated!? ironically, I was alone with no passengers! both front airbags failed me & were faulty! I feel this is a major safety hazard and I was lucky to get out of my car alive! I don't know if fault lies wholly with Honda and/or takaka or w/ the dealer who sold me this car? unfortunately, I now own an $8000 "totaled" crv sitting in a junkyard and I'm w/o transportation to my job!.
