Honda CR-V: Carrying Cargo in the Cargo Area or on a Roof Rack

Honda CR-V (2006–2011) Owner's Manual / Before Driving / Carrying Cargo / Carrying Cargo in the Cargo Area or on a Roof Rack

Distribute cargo evenly on the floor of the cargo area, placing the heaviest items on the bottom and as far forward as possible. Tie down items that could be thrown about the vehicle during a crash or sudden stop.

Do not stack items higher than the back of the rear seats. They can block your view and be thrown around the vehicle during a crash.

If you carry large items that prevent you from closing the tailgate, exhaust gas can enter the passenger area. To avoid the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning, follow the instructions on page.

If you carry any items on a roof rack, be sure the totalweight of the rack and the items does not exceed 165 lbs (75 kg).

If you use an accessory roof rack, the roof rack weight limit may be lower. Refer to the information that came with your roof rack.
