  1. Buy Used or new part or fix old part

    Problems & Issues
    So I see plenty post on how to fix the wire harness in the door of my 2000 crv. I also have a 99 crv that inise for parts on which the wire harness is good and working. Should I just use the used wire harness or should I fix the problem by soldering and fixing the current wire harness.
  2. Advice - Buy New or Buy Used?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I have read many posts about the oil issues into the gas found as a problem in the 2017 and 2018 and so I though fine I will find a nice used 2016 and get certified. Now I have read some more about the oil issue and it seems it may not be a huge a deal for all new car owners. I live in South...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Hello, I am considering buying a brand new Honda CR-V 1.6d AWD. I love its sparky engine, its spacious cabin and believe in Honda’s reputation in building dependable cars.

  5. Why does anyone buy a 2WD CR-V? Why does Honda even make 2WD CR-Vs?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    When browsing the 17/18 pricing threads, I notice a surprising number of people opt for the 2WD variants of the CR-V. I really don't understand why. Isn't utility one of the reasons people buy a CR-V over an Accord or Civic? Do the benefits of AWD not far exceed the costs, which are really...

    Hey, I'm brand new here and so glad to find this forum. It's time to replace my 1997 Honda Accord, which I bought 18 years ago. At 125,000 miles it still runs like a champ, but my husband and I need a larger trip car and I would like some more amenities. So I'm obviously a big Honda fan, and...
  8. Best Day of Year to Buy

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    It might be premature but I am contemplating the purchase of a 2018 CR-V Touring. While they probably won't be available until December, I was thinking that maybe buying at Christmas or 12/30 would yield a good negotiation. Does anyone have experience trying to make a deal at this time of year...

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I've been given a great deal on a 2014 2.2 diesel SR spec CRV. Currently I've only put a small deposit down and exchange in 6 days time.

    Looking at a few 2014 EX-L for my wife. All are lower miles, around 30,000 and at honda dealers. I already planned on asking that the brake fluid and tranny fluid be changed before we buy. Are there any other things to check for on this model before purchasing? thanks in advance
  14. I was wanting to buy a 2017.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    So I own a 2010 EX CRV and was about ready to buy a 2017 EX or EXL soon. In the family we have had a CRV since 1997, quite familiar with all generations. My concern is the amount of negativity of owners on this forum about the new CRV lately. From body panel gaps to turbo noise to seats and...

    We are in the market for a new car and started looking at the CRV. I already have a Hyundai Tucson and my wife wants to trade in her Cruze for a similar sized crossover SUV since we just had our first baby.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Simple question...what Wheel Locks did you buy for your new Honda CR-V "official rims"? It seems many don't fit the Honda made rims! Even McGard has a disclaimer: It is 1/4 in. taller and may affect appearance. For aftermarket wheels only. For OEM wheels see dealer. Aftermarket wheels only...
  20. Why did you buy your 2017 CR-V?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I bought my 2017 CR-V for this reason. A few weeks ago a careless driver crossed the center line of the road and hit my 2013 CR-V in the driver’s door. The impact sent me across the road and narrowly missed breaking all the way through the guard rail keeping me from plunging into the lake I was...
