Itís not the Odyssey, Passport, Pilot or Ridgeline.

They have four NA factories that make the CR-V.

Are they importing HR-Vs from Japan?

Anyone know whatís going on?

They had five (5!!) import truck sales last November.

Then 698 in December.

Now 2252 in January.

My guess is that it's the CRV.

The rest are all made in North America.

It just seems crazy/unlikely that they can't get enough production from Greensburg, East Liberty, Marysville and Alliston.

I've seen Japan CR-Vs on the lot in November 2018. I know in the past (distant?) they also imported some from the UK to help with volume.

And now in the latest profit report they're blaming CR-V incentives to try and sell down all the supply...that's not great.
