    Not sure if this is new or relevant to the UK, but thought it should be posted as a FYI

    American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 24,127 model year 2017 Honda CR-V 2WD and AWD vehicles.
    The vehicles have a fuel supply pipe that may have been improperly manufactured, possibly resulting in the pipe disconnecting and leaking while the vehicle is being driven.
    If the pipe disconnects, the engine will stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the disconnected pipe may leak fuel, which, in the presence of an ignition source, can increase the risk of a fire.
    What to do

    Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel supply pipe, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 25, 2017.
    Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's number for this recall is KH1."

    This is only for US- CR-V's.

    There is no 5th Generation CR-V here in the UK. And in any case, this thread is in the wrong subsection and should be moved to the 5th Generation section.

    Preview of the European 5th Generation CR-V is at next months Frankfurt Motor Show, including the hybrid CR-V:
