2003 CR-V Performs Poorly In Low Speed IIHS Crash Tests
 Date: July 03, 2002 08:46
 Submitted by:  Anonymous
 Source: www.canadiandriver.com
 Credibility Rating: N/A


From the article:

Overall, the CR-V sustained about $6,600 damage in the Institute's four bumper tests, nearly double the total damage sustained by a 1998 CR-V in the same tests. "When Honda redesigned the CR-V, the manufacturer obviously didn't care about the bumpers. The result is that CR-V owners can expect a lot of costly damage, even in minor bumps," Lund says.
