  1. 3 dealer oil changes in 1000 miles!

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I purchased a 2018 CRV Touring just before Thanksgiving. I was mildly excited as this was my first new car purchase and I'm 59. I felt fairly safe with the oil dilution issue since my CRV was an 11/18 build. One of the last 18's built - it already had the "fix." I did notice that it...
  2. 2015 crv lost 1/2 quart in 1000 miles

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Greetings I recently purchased a used 2015 crv and did a mobil synthetic oil change 1000 miles ago (don't know what oil previous owner used). Just read the dipstick now and had to fill an extra half quart. Is this normal for crvs? has 33k on it. What else should I be looking for. The drain pan...
  3. 1 month and 1000 miles!

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Odometer turned 1K today on our 2018 EX! The calendar also brought a full month of ownership and driving. Just wanted to make a few notes on my experience so far. The new V has been my every day driver\commuter\weekend run around since picking it up. I'm happy to report near perfection in...
  4. 2018 CRV-EX Vibration at < 1000 rpm

    Problems & Issues
    I just purchased a new CR-V EX and after driving it for a while there is significant vibration when the engine is idling, seems worst around 800 rpm. Through the seat and door it is noticeable but not bad, through the center console it is very noticeable - enough to be an annoyance. Enough that...
  5. 1000 mile review

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Well after passing 1000 miles, my Crv and I have got to know each other quite well. After doing a months worth of research I was prepared for almost any of the Crvs peculiarities. Overall it a well designed, engineered and built vehicle. No trips back to the dealer for anything. Very...

    --Hit: Walk Away Lock/ decent mileage/ good turbo+engine feel/ Center display screen cosmetically looks good when off/ Passenger & Cargo space --Miss: *No setting to keep radio playing when ignition turned off. *Daytime Running Light (DRL). Poor execution of safety feature. Even economy cars...
  7. '05 CR-V 1000 km. Review

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I've got the first 1,000 kms. under my belt in the '05 CR-V, and it's been great. All the fluids have been done, the previous owner had had a tonne of work done on it before it came to me, and it's been gas-and-go...biggest problem was getting the tires properly inflated! Had the chance to run...
  8. Towing up to 1000 pounds w/o tranny cooler - 2015

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hi, I just had my complimentary 5K oil change at my Honda dealer. I had a discussion with the service manager about my plans to add a trailer hitch and do occasional weekend-warrior towing with a 4x8 trailer. Towing would rarely exceed 25 miles a few times per year. The manager acted very...

  11. Trailer Brakes required for 1000 lbs. ?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    So I was looking through the towing instructions on my 2011 Cr-v and noticed something. They have lifted Honda's requirement for trailer brakes for loads over 1000lbs. Looking through the owners manuals online, from 2006-2011 I noticed that the requirement was lifted in 2009, which is odd to me...
