We've discussed this news (http://www.hrvforum.com/forum/313-d...sales-date-pushed-back-now-spring-2015-a.html) before on the forum, the article is pretty old at this point. Hopefully things are getting better

Yeah, I kind of thought you guys must have heard about this. I joined only recently, so missed that discussion. Plus I have heard more than one post speculate about something that has already been established, so this thread was meant for them.


Hard to know if everything in now going well in Mexico, or not.

im still weary of mexico, will be waiting some to evaluate...
Kinda makes you not want to rush out and buy one of the earliest examples, doesn't it?


But I also heard that Honda is taking the quality issues seriously, so maybe it will be OK.

I think it's safe to say quality control is going to be through the roof with these new cars.

Probably so. That whole quality problem was so embarrassing to Honda and their reputation for quality. They don't want to replay that.

I don't know about it being through the roof but overall i'd say it's not something to be highly concerned about, even if it has some issues, it should be something that discourages people from getting one.

I'm not concerned with manufacturing just because it is happening in Mexico. On the whole, Mexico builds a lot of vehicles, and a small percent of them have issues. Since this is a new vehicle I am going to wait for it to come out first and see if there are any issues, but that's because it is new, not because of Mexico.

Then you're completely ignoring the spate of quality issues pertaining to vehicles manufactured in mexico, not least of which is the glaring one that not only happened in Honda's own stable but with the assembly line your HRV will roll down.

The first FITs coming out of Japan were lauded, now production swaps to Mexico and quality is lamented. An obvious change has taken place...

Not necessarily a dud, but it is worth being concerned because the HR-V is being built in the same plant in Mexico as the Fit and there were quality problems with those.


But it is also obvious Honda is working on this so everything may be just fine as the HR-V rolls off the line. Time will tell.

Yup.

It's worth thinking about and consider as you never know what to expect although with honda they have had a good track record.
