  1. How to best fix the body damage to the CRV parked in the garage?

    Problems & Issues
    A tenant in my building hit my 2018 CRV while trying to park his car. We all have assigned spots. He sent me an email and said will pay for the damage but doesn't want to go through the insurance. He wants to use his mechanic. I prefer to get my estimate and I think that should be fine. If...

  4. 2010 CR-V Possible Hub Caliper Bearing damage?

    Problems & Issues
    Long story. Last week the dealer replaced the front struts and boots under ext. warranty. The next day there was a super high pitched squeal followed by grinding coming from the front end when turning. I had to drive it for a couple of days and the noise seemed to go away. Today I took it back...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I think I'm out of luck and going to be paying my deductible but wanted to get a few opinions. My CR-V was at the dealership for a repair that was a warrantied item (the gear shift knob was loose) today. I scheduled the appointment for as soon as possible last week when the service center...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Last week I took my CR-V into the dealer for various and sundry issues, one of which I presumed was the dreaded oil dilution, but as it happens, the engine turned out to be overfilled with oil. :wall: Fixing this issue seems to have fixed the acceleration/performance problems I was...

    Hi, I accidentally ran into another vehicle today. Here is the damage: I don't want to spend big money on it, but I do want to make it look better. I am thinking about buying touch up paint and taking care of it myself. Currently, I can't tell if the whitish blemish is due to another...

    Problems & Issues
    This is my first time posting on this forum and I wish it was under better circumstances. My brother reversed out of a parking space in front of our house in NY and his car slipped into the parked CRV. My father just got this a week ago. The plastic grille, left headlight glass, and hood were...
  13. I did $1800 Worth of Damage to My 2 Week Old CRV EXL Without Leaving the Driveway

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    OK, ultimately it was my fault - I was the driver so, "that's that" as they say. Still, as a mechanical engineer and 32 year commercial pilot (lastly on the 777) I have to question Honda's logic of making a backup up camera std equipment while a warning beeper is optional. Anyway, I agonized...
  14. 2012 CR-V Rim Damage?

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    A few weeks ago, I had Costco install a new set of Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopias on my CR-V. Unfortunately, whomever installed the tires managed to damage all four of my alloy rims. Fortunately, I took photos of the wheels before and after the tire replacement, which really helped to prove...

  16. Console finish damage

    In my wife's neverending quest to kill all germs she spilled some alcohol based hand cleaner on the console of our 2010 EX-L. It has ruined the finish, luckily it is limited to the gun metal gray cover right next to your right thigh. I have found one on line but cannot figure out how to...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi guys, I recently purchased a Honda CR-V (in April) with ~135k miles on it. I had the timing belt replaced and have had the oil changed twice in that time. On a recent long trip out of state the check engine light came on on the return passage. This had happened the previous week when the...
  18. 2015 CR-V Trim Hail Damage

    Wife's CR-V got caught in a hail storm. There is no damage I can find to paint but several dents in the trim that runs around the windows. Anyone know how easy it is to remove and replace this trim? It still has the paper plates but the damage is so small that I don't think it makes sense to...
  19. [Rant]Hidden damage

    Off Topic Section
    So I took my CRV for its bi-yearly state inspection.. In the summer I notice the trunk was a bit off when I was washing it after having the snowstorm of 2014. I took it to the dealership and ask if they could just re-align the trunk for me. They said sure no problem, we will need to take a look...
  20. CRV suffers first damage to the front end!!!!

    Problems & Issues
    I was out of town when I got the dreaded message that my teenage daughter rear ended a car while driving our 08 CRV LX in slippery conditions in NH. Apparantly the car in front of her stopped suddenly from an accident in front of her and she did not leave enough space (newbie driver!). The CRV...
