  1. Buying a 2019 EX - Buy the Honda hitch and roof rails as options? Or buy third-party?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I'm going to buy a 2019 CR-V, EX trim over the next week or two. I'd like to be able to put as a big a box as I can get away with on the roof, ideally in a configuration where there would be room for both the box and a canoe (or a bike.). I assume this may necessitate crossbars that stick out a...
  2. Buyer recommendations (Gen 3) vs (Gen 4)

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Recently my 2001 C-rv finally bit the dust with needing a transmission replaced at 260,000 miles. It served me well with little trouble through the years even with its weird quirks towards the end. I'm looking at a few models between 2011/2014 but skeptical with so many complaints with certain...
  3. I’m considering buying a used CRV EX L AWD

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I’m looking at a 2008 w 145,xxx and a 2011 w 174,xxx. Both look very clean and from private dealers. The 08 has extensive maintenance history all performed at local dealer and asking $7000. They also offer 3 mos Powertrain warranty. The 11 is listed at $7500 I think because it has more...
  4. Engine Cover - worth buying and would it reduce engine/cabin noise?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Have anyone tried to install an Engine Cover on your Gen 3 CRV? If so, have you noticed any noise level reduction (e.g. cabin noise level, engine noise, etc)? Is it mainly for cosmetic purpose to install such an engine cover, or would it actually add some value for resale, or make the car runs...
  5. Just bought a 2018 crv ex, saw engine problems after buying, should I return it?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Like the title says I bought the car today and it has the 1.5 L turbo engine. With it being a Honda I didn’t give much thought to it having an engine issue. Well after we got it home I just decided to look and see how that engine was and all I saw was a bunch of stuff about how bad the engine...
  6. For those who bought 2018 CRV Hybrid or thinking about buying a hybrid

    Hybrid CR-V
    Just a thought that came across my mind. For people who are favoring the hybrid or planning to buy a hybrid and can wait, why would you settle for such a setup when a true alternative solution is rapidly becoming mainstream, EV? Why not wait around a bit longer and get an extended range EV...

  8. Desparately need advice on buying 2018 CRV - known issues?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    This is my first post and I have to make my first sentence an apology. I'm sorry I couldn't find another thread to reply to but they all seem to be locked. Very frustrating! I've read the mod's concerns about the dilution issues but honest to goodness I don't know where else to look and I...

    Shopping & Test Driving
    First time buying an SUV sometime next year and struggling to decide. I know this is a Honda forum and the opinion may be skewed to a Honda, but was curious everyones thoughts on what to get. I want decent fuel efficiency, all wheel drive, heated seats, and nothing older than 2 years. I have...
  10. What one thing was it that sealed the Deal on buying your Gen 5 CR-V?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Looking at the exterior I was mildly impressed, after all it looked almost exactly like my Gen4 Rav4. When I saw the interior and heard the MPG I was pretty much sold on the vehicle. It was such a huge step up from the RAV4 that I fell in love right away. That lasted for about 3 minutes and...
  11. Thinking about buying

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I'm thinking about buying a 2018 CRV EX AWD. I live in Chesapeake, VA and I'm frequently out of town for work. The reason for the AWD is I dont ever want my wife to be stuck anywhere if it snows. Couple questions though, what's a decent price? I'm getting a quote for 26,500 OTD. Second, do...
  12. Online buying genuine fluids, filters etc

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Am i the only one that worries about buying genuine fluids online? I look at amazon and a lot of the fluids like honda ATF-W1 and oil filters come from sellers not amazon itself same with ebay you never know if the product is genuine. I've been buying from the local dealer but it would be nice...
  13. buying 2018 CR-V EX AWD now or wait until 2019 model is released for a better price.

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi, new to the forum here. We are in the market for purchasing a new CR-V EX AWD in the next few months, and we were wondering whether we should wait until 2019 models come out for a better price on the 2018 CR-V. Just curious, approximately how much would we save by waiting until the 2019...
  14. Buying 2018 CRV and need advice on price

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi! We have finally made a decision and chose the FTW CRV EX-L with no nav. We decided to test drive the car for a few days to make sure, so we have a Basque Red with grey interior. It has 45 miles on it because we were told it came from Houston to the DFW area on a trade with another dealer...
  15. Should I avoid buying pre-owned 2015 CRV?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi, this is my first time posting. I've been looking for 2013 certified pre-owned CRVs online, both because I want an older CPO car, and also bc that year seems to have fewer problems than other years. But there aren't many out there so I might have to look at other years. 2015s are by far the...
  16. Might be buying a new or used 17 or 18 crv

    Greetings & Introductions
    Live in Colorado. We’ll see what we end up with. Wife’s car totaled after someone pulled out in front of us but nobody was hurt it seems so that’s good. Seems like a nice compromise on a small suv. Will be coming out of a 2010 Camry. Not sure on ex or lx yet due to fuel in the oil issues but...
  17. Buying a new CR-V

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I'm sure this question is always asked, but we're looking for a 2018 CR-V and of course want to get the best price. Now, I can look at trucar or looking at the recent purchases thread here, but I feel like dealerships intentionally mask all the add-ons that the car gets. It used to be that you...
  18. Very Cautious about buying a CRV after reading some post on here!! Advice Please

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I have been shopping around all the popular crossover vehicles for last few months and narrowed down to Santa Fe Sport or CRV. I have had great luck with Honda's in past. I see lots of post about oil issues, turbo issues, heat not working well, just to name a few issues. I am wondering if I...

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi Everyone, I'm looking for a CRV here in Northen Arizona, and there's a 2001 listed that in our price range. Called the owner, , and everything sounds fine, except that he says the check engine light is on because of the gas cap. I'd like to believe that this is as simple a problem as it...
