    2019 Honda CRV's still have the Oil Dilution Problem?

    Just curious to know if any of the 2019 CRV's with the 1.5T are still having the problem with oil dilution and poor cabin heat? This vehicle was on our shopping list and I have removed it due to the OD situation. Also living in Northern Ont requires heat in the vehicle! Friends have the 2017/18 and they are not happy with the situation despite receiving a letter from Honda Canada extending warranty to six years on PT. When I write a cheque for $40+ I want to make damn sure I am not buying a vehicle being sold under a black cloud of fraud by the dealers. These vehicles are being sold with customers having no idea of the OD situation. Talked to a gentleman here yesterday and asked him if he had received his recall for his 2017 CRV Touring. His response was "For what?" When I told him he immediately checked his dipstick for gas. It was highly evident! Not too happy and will be visiting dealer on Monday.
    Some feel that this is not a big problem however how many do we not know about that are not reporting through sites such as this? The fact that "The Fix" does not seem to be working is a step backward and nothing more than a band-aide approach to ease the pressure by the customers by Honda.

    This is a very bad situation.

    Yes I have checked there but I am specifically asking about 2019 MY. Thought this would bring that MY to a separate thread which is easier than trying to locate the 19's in the 2017/18 posts.

    This is a question many of us are asking. We can only hope the mods will not close it before it even begins. This needs to be kept separate from the OD thread and responses limited to "2019 owners only".

    My 19 heats up normally, no issues. We had a BMW before--no dipstick, maybe that's the best solution! It was also a 4, 2 liters, turbo.

    Some reports are beginning to show up on the NHTSA site.

    LOL. The VIN #s of the two oldest entries (Dec 26 and Jan 7) are 2017-18. The other entries are all 2019s (K). The Feb 3 entry from Maine is not encouraging, same cold engine - no heat - no defrost problem.

    I have a 2017 EX that has had zero issues, but after all I have read about the OD problems and Honda's reaction to it, I just don't trust it. Therefore, I am very interested in any discussion about the 2019 model. Hoping honda does a mid-model refresh and replaces the whole engine for 2020....

    Same engine as previous and they don't have fix yet for previous ones so it will likely that same issue will be encountered for 2019
