    2018 crv vent question

    Hello , new to the forum , I live in upstate NY. My question is does anyone out there know what the purpose of the vent holes in the front wheel wells are . Seems pointless to me because all they do is catch the salt /sand / dirt from the winter roads as the front wheels sling it forward . Would love to cover these up ! called the dealer and they didn't have an answer , told me to talk to the salesman and he should know , typical dealer answer. Any thoughts out there? Thanks

    Probably a Honda engineer was given a big bonus for figuring out how to save a few ounces of weight by drilling holes in the wheel wells.

    I seen those holes. All the Sales Team is interested in Selling. If you do want that answer for its exact Detail have them research for you or call the General office and ask, then report back to us so we all can know the answer. My Guess is Air flow, water flow, noise flow, heat flow, or maybe down the road Led light for the wheel well, or a signal that will be a illuminated marker, and that is what I am going to guess for sure

    Illumination marker install spot

    Most likely it is airflow to make the care more aerodynamic. Many newer cars have that.

    Wonder if those vents allow some airflow "exhaust" when those crazy shutters are closed?
