#31 of 40 SOME CRVs MADE IN MEXICO!
Feb 19, 2013 (7:06 am)
I just looked at 2013 CRVs and one was made in Mexico. That is OK, but what is NOT, is that it was the exact same price as one made in the USA. Labor in Mexico is a fraction of US labor, so it should be much cheaper, in the Thousands of dollars. I will NOT buy a HONDA made in Mexico! Hope you wont either!

So, are you saying you will not buy a CR-V made in Mexico because you feel that if the CR-V's made in the USA are the same price as those made in Mexico, then the buyer is being over charged for the CR-V made in Mexico? My question to you is, do you know how much Honda is paying for the labor in Mexico or are you making an assumption that the labor is cheaper in Mexico strictly because that is the way it has normally been?

I still have the "sticker" page with details on my Honda CR-V which was purchased in October of 2012. It states that 65% of the parts were made in U.S./Canada; 20% in Japan & final assembly was done in El Salto, Jalisco, Mexico. Country of Origin: Japan; Transmission USA.

Hey. I think the media has influenced you a bit. I live near Guadalajara and the town where the CR-Vs are assembled. This is a beautiful city, with many affluent, well educated Mexican people. A lot of the kids go to technical school, near by, and are hired by the manufacturing plants. The plants are state of the art and the level of education and quality of the workers is high for a factory. There is a growing middle class, home owners with two children families with the same goals as you have. And many of them are loyal Honda owners! Two of my Mexican friends bought new CR-Vs this year! They are everywhere. Great cars, regardless of where they are made.

FWIW, Wikipedia says that the last two generations were/are made in Mexico (and several other places).
Where those CR-Vs are shipped to is another question.

The ones assembled in Canada and Ohio mostly get shipped to the Midwest and East-Northeastern US.The ones put together in Mexico generally end up in the southern tier of states.

My 2014 CR-V EX has a 2HKRM4H52EH6113** VIN number...
Final Assembly was at Alliston, Ontario, Canada,
with 70% US/Canadian parts, 15% Japan, Engine USA, Transmission Japan.
Great Car, nicely made.
When I took my left "A" pillar trim off to install my Gentex Auto Dimming Homelink mirror, I noticed a wire harness with "made in China" on it.
