  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello, Concering 2011 CR-V AWD, 74K miles. As far as I know transmission/transaxle fluid never changed. Vehicle runs very well otherwise. Yesterday we drove the CR-V up two fairly steep roads, app. 2-3 miles long, partially paved/gravel, not off roading at all. No tire spin as far as...

    Has anyone experienced a smell similar to that of burning plastic, outside the car, after driving for awhile? Honda claims its the plastic cover over the turbocharger. I'm trying to discover if this is a 1-off problem or if others have the same issue. I also want to discover if this is a...
  3. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I have a 2015 CR-V AWD EX and recently had oil light go on at 48,000 miles. Mechanic said there was no oil leak and that it can be normal to burn about 1 quart every one thousand miles. I was probably two quarts low or more. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks
  4. Diesel CR-V
    I bought a 2016 CRV 4 months ago and it has been fine until a few weeks ago. When using the A/C heating above 20 after about 30 mins there is an acrid burning smell and I have to turn down and open all windows to clear the smell. I am mostly doing motorway driving. Any ideas what could be...
  5. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I'm wondering if its normal to burn a half quart of oil every 1,000 miles. Thinking that maybe it was the quality of oil I was putting in my 2010 CRV, this time I used Mobil 1 High mileage advanced full synthetic 0w20 and it is still burning a half quart of oil every 1,000 miles. Any...

    Opened the engine bay to check oil levels and notices this on the turbo(?) shield. What's that?

    Yesterday on my way home from work, in 4pm traffic on US19 there was an accident that had traffic crawling for a few miles. Once i passed the small accident (one car did look kind of smooshed) i had a wide open freeway, except the car in front of me who continued to drive 20mph for WAY TO LONG...

  11. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have just turned 100,000 km on my LX 4 and the oil light started flashing. An immediate check showed a dry dipstick. I have followed the service schedule to a T. Have other owners experienced/heard about this issue?
  12. Performance Modifications
    I have 7,000 miles on my 2012 CRV and brought it in for the first oil change at my local Firestone. They refused to change the oil and said that I should go to Honda due to a ticking noise and engine burning oil. I went to Honda today and they did the oil change and didn't seem concerned about...

    Hello just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I seem to be burning out headlights more then one would expect. I bought my CR-V used one previous owner and since I have owned it I go through headlights every few months.
  14. Shopping & Test Driving
    I found a 2007 CR-V with ~30k miles on it. The only problem is that there is burning smell coming from the engine bay. Is this normal? Is it possible that its the chemicals they use to clean the engine bay and make it look shinny?
