  1. Drive Shaft removal for better gas mileage

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hey guys I have 2005 crv with 4wd, previous owner removed the drive shaft, here in Mexico they do that a lot to save on gas but I’m wondering how much of a myth that is? I go camping a lot and even though I haven’t really NEEDED the 4wd I think I’d be nice to have but I don’t wanna spend more on...
  2. 08 2wd leaking right rear shock

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I’m going to be doing some towing and want to know what the best shocks would be. I wasn’t thinking about the fronts, yet, but will do them at some point. Any info will be appreciated.
  3. Actual towing capacity - 2014 CR-V 2WD EX

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    The owners manual states the towing capacity is 1,500 lbs. Is this the real capacity? If not, what is it? I'm considering towing a small camper trailer. Thanks
  4. Another CVT fluid change thread (2016 2WD)

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Cliff notes: very babied SE 2016 2WD with 30k miles - vibration in drive at a traffic light, sluggish acceleration - fluid looked and smelled bad and had LOTS of metal shavings in it. After only 1 drain/refill vibration is gone and acceleration improved. Background: 2016 SE 2WD, 29500 miles...
  5. Certified 2016 CRV SE 2wd, 14K miles

    Greetings & Introductions
    Today I purchased the above buggy, it replaced a stolen / crashed / totaled 2008 Santa Fe. I'm a former CRV owner, previously purchasing a 1998 LX 2wd. I eventually gave it to my daughter for college use (then early married life). She sold it around 2014, she wanted something less...
  6. Potential Buyer Feedback: CRV LX 2WD

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I’m interested in trading my 2018 Tacoma TRD Off-Road 2WD double cab for a 2019 CRV LX 2WD (U.S. spec). This is a result of only averaging 15-17 MPG (City) and limited interior space for my new family of four. I currently carry a booster seat and rear facing car seat. It’s tight in the Tacoma...
  7. 2WD, mud... chains??

    Off The Beaten Path
    I took my 2006 2WD down dirt roads in badlands and Utah this past summer. All went well until I got caught one morning in a campground 12 miles out after a drenching thunderstorm. Then it was pretty darn sketchy getting out of there. Slick mud about 2 - 3 inches deep and a steep cliff on one...
  8. Intro - 2018 CR-V EX-L 2WD

    Greetings & Introductions
    This is my second Honda. I purchased a Civic in 2013 and did not trade it in. Honda makes great cars. I purchased the CR-V for family travel and joined this forum because I believe it will provide helpful information as I navigate the new experiences that will come from owning my first SUV.
  9. 2017 CRV EX-L 2WD - Tire Noise

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just bought this with 16k miles. Didn't notice the loud tire noise when test driving. But, it is annoying. It is louder than my 2004 Honda Pilot. I looked through the thread and couldn't find anything regarding this, but I've googled it and it seems to be an issue for some. Is it the...

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hi, guys: Nice to be here. Just wonder if anyone bought Honda Platinum Shield Protection and later cancelled it within 30 days after purchase?
  12. 2006 2WD KYB Front Struts Installed

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I did another thread on the rear KYB rear struts. I am still happy with them a few months later, so I went ahead and got the front struts as well since the car has 130,000 on the original struts. It was a straight forward job. No need to even pull the brake calipers. Undo a 10mm bolt holding...
  13. Brake job on 2012 CR-V LX 2wd

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Planning on doing a front brake job (rotors and pads), a friend had an extra pair of rotors he ordered and never ended up using. The website he picked them up from say 2012 Honda CR-V All Wheel Drive Front Brake Rotor Pair. Front Brake Rotor Specifications: 11.65" (296mm) Front Brake Rotor...
  14. 1998 2WD Looses Brake and Steering Power Assist

    Problems & Issues
    1998 two wheel drive. 180k miles. Power assist for brakes and steering suddenly stops working. The car still stops and steers, just no assist. This happened twice in the past week. Both time was reasonably low speed, once while backing out of a parking spot and the other while pulling into a...
  15. 2017 CRV-EXL 2WD flapping/clicking noise at speed

    Problems & Issues
    Our 2017 EXL 2WD with the 1.5L turbo makes an occasional noise at speeds over 60 mph and sometimes at lower speeds, seems to come from right rear and sounds like something caught under the car flapping or ticking rapidly, but there is nothing there to see and it's intermittent. Wondering if...
  16. 2006 2WD AT 150K miles extra maintenence?

    Maintenance and Service
    I got a 2006 with 154K on it. Had to replace a CV joint on it but besides that it seems to run fine. It labors going up some steep slopes, and I have to press the D3 button to not slow down but it is a 4 cylinder. I had to downshift in my old car and I guess that's what D3 does... Is this...
  17. 2006 2WD KYB rear struts installed

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Just swapped out the factory rear struts with 128,000 miles on them after the driver side rear had been clunking for about the last 10,000 miles and was slowly coating the lower control arm in oil. Went with the KYB Strut-Plus all in one struts since the rear was sitting a little lower than it...
  18. 2009 CR-V EX 2WD alignment problems

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I went for an alignment Sunday and I have attached a pic of the final result printout. The tech said my vehicle right side camber is off, -0.7 degrees to the left and the caster is off, 1.03 degrees also to the left, and could not be adjusted. He did mention something about my struts might be...
  19. Handsfree Hatch in LX 2WD.

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi folks, i have the LX 2WD canadian spec version. Any idea if its even possible to have the hands free hatch installed on this model?
  20. Why does anyone buy a 2WD CR-V? Why does Honda even make 2WD CR-Vs?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    When browsing the 17/18 pricing threads, I notice a surprising number of people opt for the 2WD variants of the CR-V. I really don't understand why. Isn't utility one of the reasons people buy a CR-V over an Accord or Civic? Do the benefits of AWD not far exceed the costs, which are really...
