2020 Honda CR-V - Engine oil dilution

I am looking a Honda CR-V 1.5 turbo engine. I have read that the gasoline gets into the oil, thus diluting it. Has anyone else experienced this?

It’s too soon to know if the 2020 CR-Vs will suffer from this well-known defect. Here is your best resource to learn more about the issue.

Do you live in a cold winter area? That seems to be a factor. What I don’t understand is why it has affected the CRV and not the other Hondas with that engine.
