  1. 2010 CR-V 4WD Towed Incorrectly

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    My 3rd Gen 4WD CRV was towed by only lifting the front axle. Emergency brake was also engaged. Tow-truck company was flat-out negligent! I can't find any documentation to explain why a CRV 4WD must be towed lifting all four wheels off the ground and prove what specific damage would be caused...
  2. Drive Shaft removal for better gas mileage

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 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...
  3. 1997 - RT4WD works in reverse but doesn't seem to work forward

    Problems & Issues
    Hi All - First Post! Actually first post on any forum anywhere! Seems like a good one to start on. Anyway, I have a 97. When I back out of the driveway and turn right I notice I have to give it a little more throttle to make it back up because the 4wd is gripping in the rear. This happens on...

  9. 2018 4wd differential fluid change

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    My maintenance minder just came on my 2018 AWD CRV and said I need to do a 4wd oil change (or something like that, in addition to the oil and filter change). That surprised me, since I only have about 14k miles on the car, and in the past I've only changed the differential fluid every 60k or...

  12. 2006 ex 4wd 137,000 miles - good deal?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi I am in the hunt for a gen 2 and am wondering if a well maintained crv with new tires, serpentine belt, brakes and rotors for 6700$ is a good deal? He said he would be able to lower by a few hundred dollars but this is on the high end of KBB 4800-6800.

    Problems & Issues
    I just bought a 2007 EX as a work beater car for its 4WD and cargo. I've had it a few months now, and this past Wednesday, the charging light came on on the dash. I limped home and made it almost all the way (1.1 mi!) before it shut down. I put a new alternator in it, and the old one tested...

    Hi, I'm a new owner of a 2007 CR-V (155K miles). Long story short, we bought a used 2007 Jeep Patriot about 3 years ago for our daughter to drive. Paid about $8K for it and then had one problem after another (at about $400-1000 at a clip), and last week I find out that the frame has corroded...
