While installing my child's carseat, the weld broke and the anchor came off of the car. This was a structural failure and should not be considered "wear and tear".

The door lock on my 2009 CRV does not work, neither manually nor with the electronic "fob". I cannot get into the car. I went online on edmunds car forum and noted that this appears to be a widespread problem with Honda CRV. Perhaps Honda should be made to fix this problem at their own expense. This problem could potentially leave the car owner locked outside his/her car in the freezing cold with no access to a phone to call for help. Please look into this matter.
