  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I purchased a used 2008 CR-V EX-L 4WD back in October. So far I love the car a lot, but the gas mileage, not so much... When I purchased the car, the dash read 17.5 mpg. And the previous owner did a fair share of city driving, so I figured it would get bumped up after driving it a while...

    So I finally heard back from American Honda today after opening a case with them on Jan 8. 2019. We have had oil dilution in our 2018 Touring since buying it in April 2018. We are located in central WI. We have had the oil changed 2x within 4,000 miles for oil levels up to inch over the high...

    I recently purchased a 2003 CRV EX with 165K (AWD, Automatic) and have been getting it road ready for my daughter, which has been more of headache than I thought. I had to replace the Catalytic Converter and tires to get to pass inspection and that was $$$$. It is mostly ready now, although I...

    === Saturday 8/25 afternoon: Dead battery. Called AAA. Tech hooked up a green gadget to test my battery. Printout after test said "battery needs to be replaced". (see pic below). However, tech insisted that my battery was charging well and did NOT need to be replaced. The battery replacement...

All part made in USA, assembly in Canada. It is not Japan car any more, but much better then Honda HRV (Mexico car assembly with big...
  9. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    My 2008 CR-V is making the kind of noise that almost sounds like failing sway bar links, however when I tried to take a visual, I just don't *see* any thing abnormal, for all four links, they don't show any play if I try to grab on the links, no matter how hard I was trying. If I use a pry bar...

    I am connected from my iPhone 6s to the built in media system via bluetooth. The audio lag on it is pretty bad. I can click stop on my phone and the audio goes on for another half a second or so. The lag in firing up Siri is even worse. In my previous vehicle, the $30 bluetooth to aux...

    Today I just found out one of the cells is bad and holding about 10 volts. Must I return to the dealer for battery replacement since it's under 3 years? Or can I go to auto-zone or advance to take advantage of the warranty? thanks, Bill

    My wife complained that the crv was not starting right. I started it myself and it was slow cranking. I measured the voltage of the battery at 10.6 VDC. Charged the battery for 8 hours and the voltage went up to 11.3 VDC. Pretty sure one cell went bad in the battery and have a service...
  13. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    We are new to CR-V, having just purchased a 2003 EX after years of faithful Subaru ownership. We are suprised by the amount low end torque, to such a degree that the tires currently on the vehicle are woefully insufficient: the fronts spin under minimal throttle even on dry pavement. These Toyo...

    Well at 2 weeks old, and 700 miles the battery went bad. I jumped it off, and drove around for the day, then that evening, it was dead again, voltage was below 10v both times. I ran by autozone, and they tested the battery, and said it was bad. I took it to the dealer the next am, and sure...

    I recall reading a post where a guy wanted to sue Honda or something over his new V getting really bad mileage. He was getting like 16 MPG, far below the rating for this car. Well, I had a little trip to do today so I carefully checked the MPG on my Touring. The trip was just 18 miles, not a...

    I am new here and joined to post about an odd experience I just had working on the brakes of a friend's 2003 CR-V. I replaced pads and rotors all around, using Wagner Thermoquiet pads and Wagner rotors. All went well until I tightened down the rear rotors. Once the cross head screws were tight...
  17. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    99 CRV 178k miles. Noticed grease coming from both axles and had a slight vibration from 2500-3000 in 2nd gear primarily when just accelerating to shift into the next gear. I replaced both stock axles today with some aftermarket ones but now have a bad vibration in the same RPM range but MUCH...

    Our cars have a nice, sleek, underside. The consequence? All the places seasoned DIY-ers might have jacked up the car, like subframe bolts or control arm bushings are all covered up. Previous CR-V's had nice reinforced plates at the front and rear of the vehicle. Ours? Not so much. My...

    So I've never done anything by myself related to my honda. But right now I have to save a little money so I'm trying to spend as little as possible. I've been reading about all the things you should test before assuming you have a bad fuel pump but the thing is that a mechanic just brought a...

    My mechanic and I decided to replace the bad coil and see what code comes up next. It drives very smoothly, plenty of power but the check engine light did come back on. I am going in this afternoon to find out what the code is. Two important things: A) I am going to sell the car (though I love...
