    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hello CR-V owners, I was recently rear-ended by a CR-V and the force was enough to knock me into the car in front of me. The CR-V owner who hit me is claiming that she was hit from behind and that impact pushed her into my car. Her insurance company is believing her and is refusing to pay for...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I asked the dealer to test the CMBS (Crash Mitigation Braking System) is working. The only thing they could do was check for fault codes. To get any warnings I had to set the warning distance to long. If a car changes lanes in front of me I will get a Brake warning but no indication the brakes...

    Dear Honda:
    Hi Honda, Do you have any plans to enhance the structure of the current generation CR-V to improve performance in IIHS's small overlap crash test? It looks really bad and it's kinda of a deal breaker. It also shows disregard for the safety of your customers. Other manufacturers have gotten...
