  1. Getting Cool Outside air in

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Can't seem to figure out what I need to do to get the cool outside air to come in my 2018 EX-L. With the AC off and just the fan blowing the air still feels warm coming in. Is there a way to just switch to vent it let cool air in with the AC off. Thanks
  2. Still finding cool tricks: rear wiper

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    After four months with my CR-V EX AWD, I'm STILL finding new tricks the car will do! The latest was just yesterday: If I'm driving down the road or sitting still, I can operate the rear window wiper with the knob on the wiper stalk. I was earlier impressed with the fact that I have more...
  3. Air conditioner cool time

    Maintenance and Service
    2015 Honda CR-V When using the air conditioner it usual takes anywhere from 2 to 4 miles for it to put out cold air. This is in 70 to 80 degree weather. After that initial cool down it works fine. Is this a usual trait for the CR-V? :uhoh3:
  4. AC blows cool not cold at idle

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi all, I don't know if the shop that I brought my car to after the accident didn't recharge the AC properly but this is the first time I've really used my AC. Yesterday was about 77 degress out, sitting in traffic with AC on and temp set to LO. It definitely felt like it was warmish/cool air...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Hi I purchased the vehicle for reliability but want to make it a bit more sporty. My first stop was going to be roof racks and noticed there are a lot available. Any recommendations on a nice style/type? I saw on Amazon the basics cross bar for $100. Would you recommend just the cross bar or the...
  6. A/C only works in cool ambient temperature

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi folks, My air conditioner only works when the ambient temperature is below 75 degress (estimate). I've checked the coolant reservoir and the coolant level is between the max and low lines. I checked the two relays under the hood in the fuse box that control the fan and compressor and both...

    Personally I LOVE my Romik running board on my 3rd gen V.

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 1998 CRV with 190K miles. It recently started having a peculiar problem with the starter drive gear hanging up a bit in the ring gear. It will do it from about 60 deg and cooler.
