This is heads-up to all 4th Generation CR-V cars equipped with power tailgate to make owners aware of a potential issue when you manually close the CR-V tailgate. Honda has seen a few related issues on the latest 2013 models The damage can occur if the owner tries to close the tailgate manually while it is already operating in power close mode (for example, the owner becomes impatient waiting for the tailgate to close and applies additional force manually to the tailgate to speed up the closing process). Honda have measured this and noticed even with a relatively small amount of force (~ 25kgf) applied to the tailgate close to the handle can be sufficient to deform the tailgate frame. When the owner presses the remote open button on the fob the power tailgate motor clutch is engaged during the closing operation, any additional force applied to the tailgate results in the open/close rod acting as a pivot point for any additional force applied, and this may result in deformation of the tailgate frame as shown. Please note this warning is NOT in your owners manual. Please ensure all 4th Generation CR-V owners are aware of this potential damage if the power tailgate is not operated correctly. Honda dealers have been instructed to tell all new customers for the same. Can all 4th Generation CR-V owners check their tailgates if they have damage then you need to contact your dealers for repairs, since you were not aware of this flaw. On a personal point: Honda should have strengthened this tailgate frame on their initial testing.
