That $1.5M is someone's bonus.Something is amiss with this injector saga. I'm not buying Honda's assessment of debris being the only problem. If the majority of injectors do not fail with the original part number it would be highly unlikely that the replacement injector even with the original part number would fail again. My theory is that there is something unique to the vehicle in its fuel system that causes the injectors downstream to fail. Or there is some sort of a perfect storm scenario that when met the injectors fail. Honda doesn't seem to have a grasp on this meanwhile consumers shell out big bucks for a trial and error fix. @zroger73, if the numbers are small, why doesn't Honda simply replace the injectors and keep customers happy? By your estimation if the numbers are in the hundreds let's just round it up to 1,000 vehicles and $1500 repair that 1.5 million, peanuts! Same for the tailgate harness. This makes Honda look really cheap. And yes other manufacturers have issues as well but Honda's indifference to keep a customer is disappointing. Not surprising though, the oil issue in the CRV is a much bigger deal IMO and Honda claimed arrogance until Consumer Reports got involved.
Despite the owner complaints and CR's reporting of the CR-V's oil dilution issue, it doesn't appear to have had any significant impact on sales. The model continues to sell like hotcake - sales have been up consistently every year since 2009 and are up 3.3% for 2019 as well.
