If cars could have personality, I would say CRV was a hypocrite.
While having 14 recalls since 1997, I think it is little absurd to talk about Escape's recall history, huh..
, 3 less recalls huh, this really makes CRV the most realiable small SUV...
Oh! BTW, at least Ford is correcting things, not like suppressing and dismissing valid defects and problems like CRV engine fires and pulling, V6 transmission failures on Odyssey and Accord…
Yet, you failed to mention that out of 14 recalls
4 are for the same part - ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH
2 for ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING:INTERIOR/UNDER DASH
2 for POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
3 for AIR BAGS:FRONTAL
Since Honda uses same parts over multiple year, recalling one part in a 1998 model will result in recall of the same part in subsequent model year. So for 14 recalls 11 are the same part, just in different model years. Leaving only 3 other recalls that are model year specific.
Look slike Escape has 17 recalls and only 3 are repeated for the same part.
Since you brough the Oddysey and Accord into the equation, check out the total recalls for each maker.
Hmmm, something to think about. I think I know who to stick with.

A reporter is interested in speaking with people who have had their vehicle recalled in the first part of this year. If your vehicle has been the subject of a recall and you would like to speak with this reporter, please send your name and daytime phone number to Pam Krebs, Edmunds.com PR, at pkrebsedmunds.com by Tuesday, July 5. Thank you.

Recalls don't make or break a car's reputation for reliability. It's the many problems which do not result in a recall that get owners miffed.

Honda didn't dismiss anything. The solution to the engine fire was more careful mechanics when doing oil changes. As far as I can see, the pull to the right issue has been solved by some adjustments to the front end. I think that some dealers aren't willing to work with their customers on the latter issue.
In my experience, those who have no argument resort to calling names... just food for thought.

I think we've pushed anthropomorphizing to the limit here!

Over all, don't quite get what you are trying to say...
Bringing the recall history of Escape and correlating Escape to lemon is the first thing
After getting hit by the same gun, carrying recall discussion to # of particular parts in recalls is the second thing...
Bringing Firestone quality problems to CRV-Escape forum is the third thing...
If quality and reliability directly related to # of recalls that particular vehicle has, as you pointed, then may be you should have bought something else (may be Kia Sorento?? cause this make/model doesn't have any recalls yet).
Honda (383) Ford (3087)?????
Have you looked at how many models existed under Ford's page and compared it with how many models Honda has?

LoL! Good point - but you know that talking to plants is said to help them thrive so one might expect them occasionally to talk back and express their gratitude. The same might be true of CR-Vs.

Oh, I have no problem talking to my CR-V; it is when it begins talking back that I get worried.
