    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Hi all, I've had my V EX '17 for 11 months and have put 11k miles on it. Wonderful vehicle and my wife and I love it. I seldom use any of the "features"...LKAS, etc. especially "econo" mode as I find it really cuts the power during acceleration. But we took a drive of 100 miles each way from our...

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Hi all, I'm Jasmin, and it's first post here, so guess this is an intro as well! Me and my g/f are moving in together soon, and as our current car will be wildly inpractical for the road trips and weekenders we want to do, as well as for travelling with pets, it's got to go. We are looking at...

    Problems & Issues
    Hello All, I'm having 2, not serious, but annoying issues with my 2012 CRV EX. The first is the constant blinking, or calibrating of the compass.

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hello, Always hate to make a first post be something negative, but perhaps there is an easy solution! (I should add that we have an appointment with the dealer next week!) 1st - As far as the hands free phone, it is clear on our end (in the car) often times terribly quiet with the volume...
  8. 2018 CRV-EX, new owner - couple questions

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I am a little confused on some of the features. The remote has the trunk icon/button but nothing happens when I press it. Do the mirrors have the turn signal indicators, I have not seen them but there is a light in the mirror, are they heated? Does the backup camera have the option to beep when...
  9. Intro & couple questions

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello there, I've had my 98 Honda CRV for almost 3 years. Just drove her from SE Tx to Colorado. I put a new (rebuilt?) front end in her prior to the trip, but she's a reliable, wonderful vehicle. When I bought her, my mechanic in TX (who has since passed away) told me she had a timing chain...

    First off, I've owned my crv for a couple of years and I love it. But I've noticed a couple of things about it that I want to get right before my warranty expires and decide to trade in or keep. 1rst, I just had to install my third battery in two years. I don't have any aftermarket accessories...
  11. Test driving a 2012 in a couple of hours. Anything to watch out for?

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    I'm looking at a 2012 EX-L with Navi that has 69k miles on the odo. Carfax is clean and it was never owned near Houston so probably safe against flood damage. Are there any special problems this gen has that I should watch out for? I've had two 2nd gen in the past and I know they had issues...

    Any way to prevent the "black death" other than not using the AC? Just got a 05 with 49k and concerned with all the issues and cost of repairs. Any idea the extent of the problems percentage wise with the gen2's?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    we just purchased a 2017 EX in Modern Steel Metallic. This was after I test drove 15 different SUV's. So glad it is over and looking forward to the new car. Granted, this is actually to be the wifes daily driver, kicking my 2005 forester to the auction block. I now drive my wifes old 2009...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    For those still thinking about it, here are the very early impressions I've developed after driving the 2017 Diamond White/Black interior EX-L Navi. I probably only have about 40 miles on it, but early impressions are sometimes helpful. Compared to a 2016 EX which my 79yr old father has (and...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I've done some searching on here and Google itself but I wasn't able to find the answers to these questions: 1. I've noticed in certain photos and at a dealership that the top of the dash has what looks like a center audio speaker. I know Honda's website as well as published specs don't list a...

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi there, I'm about to do a ATF drain and refill on the 09 CRV in a few weeks. I've done the procedure on an Accord before, and I figured it would be pretty much the same on the CR-V since they both have very similar engines. Just a couple of quick questions: 1) Is it necessary to jack up a...

    I'm looking for a CR-V for my wife, and we test drove one yesterday that she liked, but had two concerns. 1. When starting up, it took 3-7 clicks for it to start, just a couple seconds. Is this something to worry about? 2. The vehicle has 91k miles on it, and the brakes are making a loud...
