  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I noticed for a few weeks now that my 2009 with 70,000 miles engine shudders and very gently hesitates while I try accelerating, but only when driving slowly and I keep the rpms below 2000. The problem has slowly materialized but seems to be getting more and more noticeable, as the days go by...

    I finally found some KYB Strut Plus for the front end of my 2009 LX. What other parts should I have on hand when I start to replace them to insure I won't be doing the job twice? Bushings or other suspension parts? thanks, Rob

    Good Morning, my 2009 CRV has 268,000 miles on it. It has been a great hard working vehicle. It gets regular service with synthetic oil. My mechanic has suggested that I get the Transmission Fluid changed/flushed. I have received conflicting advice about this and other maintenance suggested...

    The rear hatch of my 2009 CRV is not working properly. Sometimes it opens and sometimes it doesn't. It doesn't matter if I try to use the key fob to unlock it or the door switch. Not sure if it is a problem with the switch itself. The switch has been replaced due to a rear collision we had a...

    Hi, Does anybody know if it would be possible to automatically activate the interior lights when remotely opening the car with the remote control? Regards Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just picked up a new to me 2009 crv, but was shocked today when the mechanic quoted over $200 for a second key copy. Seriously? I had my Toyota pickup for over 20 years and simply went to Home Depo for key copies. So I can't really comprehend this price. Totally understand CRV's have more...

    The warning light came on that said I need to have my transmission serviced. I thought that this was only done at the 100,000 mile service--but I was told that the computer decides when it should be done. My speedometer is right at 95,000---so since the transmission service is being done at...

    I have received 19" wheels from my friend as a gift, and now I need piece of advice. Could I install 19" Honda wheels on my CR-V 2009? What do you think? What tires should I install?

    My 2009 CRV has new tires and all of them are balanced. On the highway at 65 to 75 the steerwheel vibrates a good bit. I can look at my legs and they are vibrating as well. I can feel it through the entire car. I cannot even begin to imagine what this would be. It feels like a wheel out of...

    Thanks, everyone who responded to my posts. I have one more question, I have a friend who has an 2010 CRV, asked him about changing my water pump, his response was how many miles on your CRV I have 100,000 he has 140,000 miles and a hasn't replaced his pump, he commented that the pump should...

    I have researched several water pump brands, with so many choices ie. Gates, GMB,Beck Arnley which are the best, I'm looking for a good not cheap that will last for about 80-100 k miles. I read about the Aisin WPH-054,Aisin it states that they recommend to soak the pump in water below the weep...

    The new water pump has a rubber seal due I need to put sealant / grease on the seal before installing
  13. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Howdy. Here is my dilemma. I had 4 pairs of yokohama tires and the Right Rear vibrated like crazy. I went and got them rotated and balanced...... the same tire as it was moved to Front LEFT was now the shaky tire. So I figured, hey these tires wore out too fast from not being rotated and...
  14. Greetings & Introductions
    Recently, I've been given the 2009 Honda CRV EX with roof rails and running boards that's been in my family since new. While this car has been used and abused as a Rural Mail car for the 10 years we've had it, it's still in good shape. She's had the starter changed, a new serpentine belt, half...

    I have managed to get my mirrors to fold when the dead locking is activated, it took some investigating using non UK wiring diagrams but I got there.
  16. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have a 2009 CRV that was maintained very well by the former owners. I bought the CRV when it had 90,000 miles and a full service was done. I have only put 3900 miles on it and the oil light symbol came on (the little wrench and it said 15%) If those Hondas have a 5000 mile oil life, why did...
  17. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    My Fiance owns a 2009 CR-V EXL with roughly 165-170k on it. She commutes almost 100 miles round trip 4 days a week. Just this morning, both of her front brakes started grinding pretty bad when she left for work. She drove the car all the way to work then all the way home. I drove and...
  18. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Any recommendations on how to tow a CRV behind a U haul? Do I need to do anything special since it is All wheel drive?
  19. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    please inform me how to remove and install the lower crv tailgate trim (if a video is available would be better) and send me a photo for the plastic clips used ti fox tje trim, mine all are crashed.
  20. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    The dealer is quoting around close to $1k to replace the struts and leave the springs, if I want complete struts close to $1500. I can get new Monroes Quick struts for $96/side with shipping and do it my self. I have never taken apart struts with a spring compressor but is it something I...
