    OK this am , i bled the brakes, with a miteyvac vacuum bleeder,

    i put through a litre of dot 4 brake fluid, using a combination of engine on and pedal pumped, and engine off and just sucking out with the vacuum bleeder

    The results ,,,, with engine running , pedal travel has improved, brakes bite almost straight away when driving , however whilst stationary I can push the pedal hard and make it travel some more, but not to the floor, you can also hear the engine note change , i guess its due to the vacuum demand.


    So car stops fine , brakes bite straight away, hardly any pedal travel, but when continuing to push pedal hard whilst stationary pedal moves another inch or 2 , but not to floor ,

    I really do wonder if this is just a characteristic of the 2006 CRV ??/ and this is my first CRV, !!!

    Update

    I continued to be unhappy about the brakes at idle , they are infact ok whilst in motion.

    I decided to call my local Honda UK dealer, and spoke to their tech, he said , what i describe is "normal" yes normal,, i said are you sure , "yes" he replied !! the system has a pressure relief mechanism, that protects the parts of the braking system

    Anyway , he said I have a outstanding re-call on a window winder switch and while its in , they will check my brakes for me also , all for free !!

    So we will find out soon !!

    Some dealers will allow you to try another dealer vehicle, to assure yourself that "They All Do That, Sir"

    Might not hurt to ask, if it really bothers you.

    I had one vehicle (bought new) wherein the brake pedal would slowly go to the floor while stationary. The dealer replaced everything in the brake system except for the hard lines...no change. SHRUG.

    It's OK if you disagree with me.
    I can't force you to be right.

    My dealer also said the servo is very powerful on the Crv !!!

    Hey, I never noticed this before, but if my V is stationary, and I press the brake pedal HARD, it does slowly sink a bit. Son-of-a-gun!

    I guess I never noticed it 'cause I only press the pedal enough to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
