(KGTV) — ABC 10News viewer Cynthia James writes that she read on Google that rodents were attracted to the Honda 2017 CR-V because the company uses soy-based wire coating.
She says she has already spent $800 on damages from rats.
But that soy claim is unproven.
Rodents have been snacking on car wiring since the invention of the automobile.
While most car manufacturers switched to a more eco-friendly soy-based wiring in the 2000s, every class action lawsuit blaming rodent damage on that has been dismissed.
The soy industry even commissioned a scientific study that found mice were equally drawn to soy and non-soy-based materials.
