That's a somewhat generic answer to the question though since, of late
anyways, there's been some discussion of parts content determining where
the car originates regardless of assembly point, i.e. if 60% of the
parts come from the USA and the vehicle's assembled in Canada, the car's
VIN would still begin with a "1."
Better to run the entire VIN and look at the 11th digit/character in the
VIN which designates the assembly point.
Looks like your CR-V would be produced at Swindon, UK. If this is true, a
visit to a local Honda dealer would reveal the first letter of the VIN to

This doesn't seem to be overly accurate, but is interesting from a
"casually informal" point of view.
The easiest thing to do is to go to local Honda dealers and look at the
window sticker. It will tell you the point of final assembly and some
numbers for parts content. I think that US market CR-Vs come from both
Japan and Ohio. There is no telling where any particular one will be
made. Back in '03 when we bought our Accord all of the 4 cylinder
Accords on the lot were from Japan and all of the V-6s were from Ohio.
It just all depends on Honda's production planning.
