  1. The End of An Era

    Greetings & Introductions
    Well... it finally happened. I've been on this site for probably a year, but never made a post. On friday, my baby gave up. 2003 Honda Crv cut out on me. The engine would crank but not turn over. Had her towed to the mechanic, only to find out that the timing chain was busted, all 4 cylinders...
  2. 2015 Infotainment System Crash

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I have a 2015 CRV and the infotainment system gets stuck on startup. The picture of the Honda logo with the Earth behind it stays for an extended period of time, the radio turns on and off at the same time. Then, it will give me a screen saying "Software Update: There was a problem reading the...
  3. 2018 CRV EXL is broken...

    Problems & Issues
    So My car has been living at the dealer, I had it almost a year and I have about 14k mi on it. As of right now it needed a new CPU, fuel injectors, a few gaskets. This can't be normal? I know it's being covered under warranty but seems like an awful lot to go wrong? I took it in because one...
  4. Broken motor mount, drove like that for a while. Issue?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    So my crv got in a accident at 900km. Got fixed up and I drove it for about another 2000km with the engine seeming to vibrate quite a bit. In those 2000km I was trying to get the body shop to look at it again, and they finally admitted it drove funny. So it got looked at again under insurance...

    Problems & Issues
    While I was in my garage, I pushed the button to raise the tailgate on my 2017 CR-V EXL.

I was standing next to the vehicle, so I quickly applied direct...

  8. VTEC Solenoid Bolt Broken and Stuck

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    I just bought a used 2005 Honda CR-V. The guy who owned it before me tightened the 3 bolts way too tight, so when I was removing them one of the bolts broke. I was able to get the broken bolt out, but when I went to screw new bolts on, another bolt broke in the same position. This time, even...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Someone hit my CRV Touring and broke the mirror off. Can the piece that is broken be replaced or do I have to buy the whole assembly? Is the a Honda only part? How does the mirror assembly come apart? I have already removed it from the vehicle using a YouTube video for guidance but I can not...

  14. Broken parking release gearshift button--CRV 2017--still under warranty.

    Dear Honda:
    My parking release gearshift button broke off--just fell into the tray & the spring fell out after I had shifted to park. Still under warranty--that part should have lasted the life of the car. Some internet notes say that when they took the vehicle for repair they were told the dealer shop...
