  1. Battery depleted when car was left running

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Wife went to lunch yesterday. She came back to work, forgot to turn off the car and walked inside (cell phone distraction). Later in the evening (4 hours later), she came out and was not able to start the car. She called and I was puzzled as to what the cause was. Since I wasn't there...
  2. Removing Adhesive Backed Item From Car Bady

    Problems & Issues
    Just wanted to check before I ruin the body. I’ve got a plastic emblem stuck to the back door (tailgate) that I want to remove. I’ve read to use alcohol or Goo Gone to remove the adhesive that was part of the sticker. I’d like to make sure those won’t hurt the finish, or is there another product...

    Diesel CR-V
    Hi, I have a 2007 crv 2.2 litre, when I accelerate hard between 50-60 mph the car judders but only at those speeds the rest of the range of speeds it is fine. I have had the wheels balanced a few times just to make sure it was not that. Does anyone know what the problem is. Thanks
  4. Hard cornering the car enters 3k rev limit

    Problems & Issues
    If I corner hard, the car suddenly stops revving over 3000rpm, it only seems to happen on flat or uphill corners.

  6. '99-'06 CR-V as possible new car: issues?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi, all. My name's Nick, and I'm not a CR-V owner (yet). I'm in the process of looking into new-to-me cars and a '99 - '06 CR-V is currently top of my list. I was wondering if any of you have any advice on common issues, years/styles to steer clear of, or any other things that might be helpful...
  7. Car is sluggish and incosistent when accelerating or keeping speed with pedal

    Diesel CR-V
    My car has been increasingly getting worse over a period of 2 years with this problem. When driving the car acts sluggish when trying to accelerate slowly. It also happens when i keep a certain speed and then release the throttle a split second, and when i accelerate back. It feels like the car...
  8. Is it safe to buy this car?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I am considering a CR-V Touring and saw this ad: It seems great at first with low-mileage, but then you realise, in the description, that this is ex-lemon car, returned to Honda due to the oil dilution issues. But then it says, it has...
  9. Replaced Glow Plug Control Module And Now The Car is Trash

    Problems & Issues
    I have CR-V 2006 diesel I changed my glow plug control module for an aftermarket replacement (as I can't find original bosch ones for sale). After installation I got check engine light (thought hmmm maybe because I disconnected the battery and swapped the module it would appear for a while), I...
  10. Car Temperature Plummets When Going Thru Car Wash

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Our 2018 Touring has no known oil or heat issues, but have noticed that when fully warmed up (red line pointing at the angle in the gauge), the marker drops like a rock when going through A 3 minute automatic car wash. The needle drops showing only 2 white lines like the car was just starting to...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Received a letter yesterday from my local Honda dealer offering to buy my 2017 CRV EX, AWD. I've owned a lot of cars over my many years, and I've never had a dealer send me a letter like this before. Not sure what to think. $22,650.
  13. Auto / Drive away door locking in UK Spec Car

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. Does anybody know how to activate the drive away auto door locking in the 2018/2019 MK5 CRV (UK Model) please. It’s not an option on the UK spec car like it is on the America. Dealer just says Honda don’t provide it for UK cars. I’m sure it must be something I can activate somehow. It’s the...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    The Car Complaints website has labeled the 2017-18 CRVs as "Clunkers" due to owner reported issues. Wonder if this will impact resale value. 2017: 2018:

    Mobile Electronics
    Is Apple car play possible in a 2015 touring. Is there a software update that will upgrade it to accept car play? Or does the head unit need to be changed?
  16. Car won't turn off - EXL

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So this is weird - when I turn of the engine, the start engine button flashes and I get three quick beeps. The dashboard display remains on and I cannot lock the vehicle. I called the dealership and they were completely useless about it. I can't take it in because I live overseas not close to...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2015 CR-V with light gray cloth seats and am wondering what kind of seat covers would be good for the front seats. They are very stained and even water leaves a stain. All recommendations are appreciated! I really wanted leather seats but my husband like the silver...
  18. Does a CRV roll a little after putting your car in park?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Do you notice that your CRV rolls a little when putting your car in Park? The parking area seems flat, might be a very slight incline but not obvious incline. I know that all cars will normally roll a little when putting your car in park to catch onto the parking pawl but I guess my question is...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I don't know if there is something going on with my phone, the charger or the usb in my car. I haven't used the charger in a few months but went to use it the other day after installing a new battery. Can someone tell me please if the usbs have to be reset following a battery change and if so...
  20. 06 CRV Ex AWD, brake sounds weird if the car slips on snow?

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    It's been snowy recently and sometimes when I press the brakes and if it's slippery, the car will not stop. But what's concerning is the weird noise the brake makes, it's hard to describe but it sounds like something is rubbing about something. I don't hear anything in normal dry weather when...
