  3. Steel brake lines

    Problems & Issues
    So the right rear brake line on my daughter's 2002 Accord sprung a leak. I had topped off the brake fluid twice in the past two weeks, and took a look underneath.

    How many clicks does it take you to fully engage the parking brake so that if you were to park on a fairly steep incline the car wont roll back if you shift to neutral?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi everyone, I just recently flipped 2 years and 25K on my 2017 EX-L Looking at the MMI I see B 2 7, the 2 makes sense for the air/cabin filter, but a brake fluid change at 25k mile seems a bit early. Anyone else get this on their CRVs?

  18. Parking brake usage/Rear brake adjustment

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Does regular/normal use of the parking brake have any effect on the rear brakes (adjust them)? In other words, if someone seldom or never used the parking brake could the rear brakes become less effective and cause higher than normal front pad wear?

  20. Inconsistent Brake Wear

    Problems & Issues
    I just got my tires rotated at Town Fair Tire, I do this at every oil change. The tech says that my front brake pads are at 8mm and my rear pads are at 5mm. This doesn't make sense to me for several reasons. One, I had both front and rear brakes done about 1.5 years ago, which is about 32K...
