  1. Shutters in front of radiator not closing in cold weather

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I am wondering if any commenters have had issue with radiator shutters not closing in cold weather? I just had the re-call done at the end of Nov. on my 2018 CRV. I am still unsatisfied with the cabin heat and continued rise in oil level. However I noticed today that the bottom 2 shutters...
  2. Pro Tip; Setting the oil cap on the wiper cowl doesn't keep the hood from closing.

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Today I must sadly admit my minor DIY failure... It's a good practice to set the oil cap somewhere where it will prevent the hood from closing to keep you from forgetting to put it back on. On my last car, a B5 Passat, the wiper cowl worked great for this, as the firewall was at the base of...
  3. Auto Closing Rear Door Danger?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I have this fear that my rear hatch will someday cut off my dogs tail because I'm always tucking it in. Is this even possible?
  4. Closing car door on seat belt breaks car?!?!

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2015 CRV, in great condition, but apparently I closed the right front door before the seat belt had fully retracted. The service advisor at the dealership told me that this dented the door jamb, so that now the car always thinks the door is open, which means that the dome light is...
  5. CRV Touring Power tailgate re-opens after closing 2/3 way

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    In park, pressing dash or tailgate open/close button the tailgate closes approximately 2/3 way, then re-opens. Is there an electric safety eye that might be blocked? Don't see one. Any help for this?
  6. Sun roof closing rattle

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all I've just bought a second-hand CRV 2001 and found the sunroof doesn't work well. It opens well without any problem. It starts rattling when I press the close button. Can't even close it using the manual tool as it seems stripped / thread off. However, when I push hard on the ceiling...
  7. Latch/bungee trunk door shut for cargo items that keep door from closing?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I have a 2012 CRV. There are some items I would like to transport that are in the range of 79" long that I am afraid will not allow the trunk door to shut completely. I looked at the door but there do not seem obvious attachment points to use bungee or similar to latch the door shut? Has anyone...
  8. Keyfob doesn't lock doors after closing

    Problems & Issues
    In my previous car, I could open a door then press the lock button on the key fob and then the door would lock after it was closed. (Useful for when you have to get groceries or kids out of the back seat.) But in my 2012 Honda CR-V the doors will not lock unless I press the key fob button after...

    Hi All, my 1st post on here and have my car for 6 years. 2003 CRV EX in lovely cosmic grey pearl. the problem is the drivers window, when its closing it seems to tilt forward when its about 2" from fully closed, this causes it to jam and then comes down again with the safety feature. I have...
  10. 2001 Hatchback Closing Problem

    Problems & Issues
    I am having problems with my 2001 Hatchback. The upper glass portion simply refuses to latch unless it is forcefully slammed several times. Then other times it latches the first time it is closed. This is extremely frustrating and seems to be getting worse. How do I repair it?
  11. Window not fulling closing?

    Problems & Issues
    Window not fully closing? Has anyone has a problem where the drivers electric window doesn't fully close. It is like it runs out of puff near the very top and doesn't quite close. Anyone else had the same thing? Honda CR-V 2002 2.0 SE-Sport Thanks
  12. Closing Trunk/Hatch/Boot

    Quick question for other 2007/Gen3 owners. Does your hatch/trunk/boot or whatever it is called close easily? I'm used to a car trunk that closes very easily without having to check it. My wife and I have now left the trunk open at least twice without knowing about it. It seems we have to take...
