  1. 4x4 CR-V tested on rollers. What a complete failure!!!

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I had my CR-V tested on rollers today. How embarrassing! Why wasn't the power transferred to the rear axle? The dude who conducted the test told the same problem was with Toyota RAV4 Hybryd.

    Hi, Can someone help me find the right part no. for the original rear disks for a CRV 2005 LX 4x4? I found the part no. 42510-S9A-E50 on many sites, but the dealer told me that it was replaced by 42510-STK-A00. Everywhere I look (ex. hondapartsnow) I find that this part no. is incompatible...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Is this normal for a computer to tell the engine to stop running when the battery is bad, while I was in the MIDDLE of driving in the busy highway?? It happened to me last Saturday. Had it towed: $90. I don't mind the dead battery, but why did the computer tell the engine to stop running when it...
