  1. 2007-2011 CRV with factory cross bars: Light Bar recommendations

    Hey Folks, I was hoping to pick your brains on light bars--I would like one that was thin enough to mount in front of the front cross bar of the OEM roof rack. The bar is about 1.25 to 1.5" tall and about 30" wide. I'm hoping to find one that matches the profile of the bar so the wind...

  6. 2015 CR-V cross bar question, and cargo bag that fits

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    The distance between the cross bars (not adjustable) are 28". I can't find any roof backs that would fit between the bars. I'd say the space is 28" long, and 41 inches wide. Could the front bar be adjusted forward? It's screw into the rails, and new holes would need to be drilled. I'd probably...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi, I'm receiving my EX-L next week. I was looking for a specific color (exterior and interior), so had to find one that was "in route", so I had no wiggle room with the sales manager and price. There are some options that I would like on the vehicle, but from what I've seen, they are fairly...

  14. Cross Traffic Monitor Stopped Working

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    The Cross Traffic Monitor stopped working on my 2017 CR-V. I have tried to check the settings to see if I might have accidentally turned it off, but the skinny manual (which is all I have right now) p.122 refers to settings which do not exist. Does anyone know the true way to turn this feature...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Just want to share my experiences of installing some 3rd party cross bars for 2016 in my cr-v 2017 ex.

    Hi all 2017 CR-V owners, I consider to buy a 2017 CR-V LX AWD in the following weeks but I have hard time to figure out how I'll use my bike roof racks on it. As a first step, it seems obvious to me that the genuine Honda roof rails is required. Starting from there, it is either possible to...
  20. Has anyone install cross bars?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    How loud are they? With wind noise. I rather get a opinion from someone that had install them and not come with the car from the dealership. I just bought roof rails and will be buying cross bars. It's mostly for aesthetic reasons but would come in handy once in a blue on road trip. But i...
