  1. Another Dead Battery

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    When reading such complaints on the internet.. context is very important. For example... in the middle of the 2017 gen5 productions runs, some version of software that controls the powerdown of the CRV in connection with the electric brake had a flaw in it, and it would leave the car in a...
  2. 2019 CRV EX - seat stain prevention

    Remove Chocolate stains from Upholstery: Scrape off excess chocolate. Mix one tablespoon of liquid dishwashing detergent, like Dawn Ultra Dishwashing Liquid Dish Soap, with two cups of cool water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution. Blot until the liquid is...
  3. One new tire ok?

    Problems & Issues
    For AWD... a different tread pattern may or may not work. Owners need to be cautious in this regard, because different treads on one tire vs the other three, may very well cause issues with road noise, handling, and may even negatively impact the rear drive system in the case of AWD. The...
  4. 2020 CR-V will get standard 1.5T, optional hybrid, and some new color choices

    Absolutely the perfect candidate for a hybrid. :)
  5. 2020 CR-V will get standard 1.5T, optional hybrid, and some new color choices

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    True.. but that was 10 years ago.. which is a lifetime in the auto industry.... actually two life times. :) Thing is.. the E is a production vehicle now, not a concept or prototype. But it IS interesting to see that the concept car of a decade ago does have some apparent lineage into the E at...
  6. Another Dead Battery

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    Was the battery even at full charge when you took delivery? I ask because a gen5 crv will slowly drain the battery (from full charge) in about 30 days sitting in the lot. And, depending on how much you drove and what type of driving you did.. that alone may not have recharged it fully in the...
  7. 2019 EX-L Road noise

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    In fact.. most tire manufacturers have a time based warranty on top of the miles based warranty.. and in many cases the tires will be out of time based warranty before they are tread-bare.
  8. 2020 CR-V will get standard 1.5T, optional hybrid, and some new color choices

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    A bit off topic.. but related to discussion about alternatives to internal combustion engines... Honda just announced their production version electric vehicle at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Simply called "E" and selling at an aggressive price point in the market. Looks like initial release is...
  9. Best All-Weather Tires 2019

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I live in California, so not a all weather tire requirement. But Consumer reports chooses the following as best in the field: 1) Michelin CrossClimate + Tire : gets Very Good rating across all test categories. CRs Take --> This excellent, well-balanced tire, which is marketed as an...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    LOL.. what could possibly go wrong. o_O Sad thing.... some drivers do this now.. without any autonomous systems in their vehicles. System fails or disengages and these drivers are toast. Unfortunately.. they endanger other drivers as well. Until a vehicle is released that actually...
  11. 2019 CR-V Electric Handbrake Activation when engine switched off with a MANUAL gearbox

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    So... in practical terms.. the vehicle has to have a way to tell if the vehicle is moving and in gear or not, and it appears that is missing on the manual transmission version, for whatever reason. Why? Lets say you accidentally, or intentionally switch off (or it turns off due to a failure)...
  12. Oil Dilution and associated matters _ Volume 1

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Yep. Saw a very similar declaration to owners from Mazda on their CX5s via their dealer TSBs as well. Its an industry wide issue. Not to mention... these are not the only factors that affect fuel dilution of oil. Actual fuel blends do appear to affect how rich the engine runs (based on some...
  13. 2020 CR-V will get standard 1.5T, optional hybrid, and some new color choices

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    The Honda approach is to use a small battery pack and it essentially acts as a buffer between the Atkinson motor and the electric drive motors, as well as storage for return energy on braking forces. In this regard the Honda approach is basically electric drive with a gas engine to provide...
  14. Brake system problem

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Mechanical shocks of all kinds are applied to both your vehicle and it's parts, passengers, cargo, etc every time the vehicle is driven. It does not just have to be severe shocks such as are common on actual off road use. Flooded cell lead acid batteries are both electrical and mechanical in...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    If you do all freeway driving, it's probably not a big benefit. If you do a lot of in town driving though.. that is where hybrids really shine... as they get much better in town fuel economy.

    Cool... thanks for the info. Always interesting to see differences in CRV configurations in different regions. :)
  17. Gas / Fuel smell outside the car near the driver's side rear wheel

    2002-2004 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 2)
    Oh... got it.. totally unrelated to current generation then. I did not notice which subforum this thread was in, since I jumped to it from the "popular" tab. :) So.. maybe the line is just old and needs to be replaced, or maybe the clamp has failed (cracked, or lost tension over time)...
  18. Brake system problem

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    The crux of the issue with electric light shows on the instrument panel in these modern vehicles when a battery goes south is driven by the fact that most systems in new cars today are largely electronic, particularly sensors, communications busses, control units, etc. So this is a fact of life...

    You do know that Honda does not make the batteries they put in their car, right? All the batteries used as OEM parts in new vehicles (Honda or otherwise) in North America come from one of two large battery producers, with Johnson Controls being the 800 lb gorilla in the industry in North...
  20. Oil Dilution and associated matters _ Volume 1

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    It would be interesting to know if other owners who see oil rise in their CRVs experience a similar benefit from keeping the oil mid-way between the upper and lower marks on the dipstick. If so.. that could be a easy adjustment owners could make to help mitigate issues, particularly during cold...
