I am a bit surprised at this warranty extensive as it reminds me of the similar surface corrosion on the my 7th Generation Honda Civic.The conditions and areas are near identical. Nevertheless this will help our CR-V owners. Honda has announced the following CR-V chassis and the years are affected CR-V RE5 07, 08, 09, 10 CR-V I-CTDI RE6 07, 08, 09 CR-V I-DTEC RE6 10 Visible corrosion may occur on the outer tailgate surface, and can be as a result of contact with licence garnish or may just appear as a blister on the outer panel. The Causes? Areas that have been subjected to some form of paint breach may appear to exhibit corrosion at an accelerated rate, due to the effectiveness of the protective Zinc galvanised steel panel potentially being compromised during assembly. The paint breach may have occurred due to manufacturing issues, normal road use damage, or industrial fall out. Note: Corrosion as a result of normal road damage such as stone chips and industrial fall out are not deemed a manufacturing warranty concern and therefore NOT covered by this extension. The Fix? All potential manufacturing causes of paint breach, or Zinc Galvaneal effectiveness have been eliminated. The Warranty Extension Period Surface corrosion caused as a direct result of this manufacturing defect will carry an automatic warranty extension of an additional 3 years (3+3) Unlimited mileage. Owners who notice such a defect should approach their local Honda dealer who will asses the condition and if the process the claim if it falls within these outlined parameters.
