    I have a 2012 with 120K miles on it. Honda dealer was replacing the front wheel bearings and said that when they were pressing in the new bearing the front knuckle bent. They said it happened because it was very rusty. My wife doesn't think we should have to pay for the part since it wasn't...

    My local dealer says that his leather guy does a better job than the factory and for less money. Is that reasonable - that an EX w/his leather could be a better choice than an EX-L? Are their different features in an EX vs an EX-L or is it all about the leather? I'm about to do a search for a...

    the battery on my 2016 CRV seems not to be retaining charge very well anymore and probably needs replacing. Is there any reason this can't be done outside of the dealer? Do they need to reset anything after the battery is changed? Will I lose any internal settings after the battery in...

    Have a appointment to get my rough idle checked out since my accident at 900km. The dealer told me that there is a HVAC? Recall on my car and so they will do that to see if it fixes the idle issue, and if not then they will further troubleshoot it. What is this recall? What's it do? And why...

    Received a letter yesterday from my local Honda dealer offering to buy my 2017 CRV EX, AWD. I've owned a lot of cars over my many years, and I've never had a dealer send me a letter like this before. Not sure what to think. $22,650.

    Dear all, My 2011 CRV (SE) currently has ~67K miles Just about 7 months ago, local dealer flushed and changed the automatic transmission fluid (ATF) for me. However, I just noticed that my ATF level was awfully low (which caused the gear shifting not as smooth). My questions: 1. I parked the...

    When I was forced to give up my landscape business due to health issues, I could no longer justify the 12mpg my perfectly sound 2004 Chevy Silverado was getting. It only had 64k miles on it, probably would have gone another 100k mi or 20 years. But I wanted something that got better mpg. It was...

    As I posted in the Problems forum, my 2015 CR-V broke down with a flashing CEL, misfiring, and a loss of power on my way home from visiting my parents. Thankfully, I had HondaCare on my vehicle and had it towed back to my dad's dealer. They took about a week but returned it after replacing...

    Hello - I have a simple question. I received the letter from Honda for Product Update 18-114 (SW Update + A/C Control Unit) The letter says failure to get the update could be considered lack of proper maintenance. ***I called my dealer to schedule the update and he said I only need the update...

    Our brand new 2019 CRV Touring was sold to us with dealer installed door edge guards and I want them off. The salesman told us the guards are glued on and a lot of time and labor is required to take the off. Looking for guidance on how to remove the guards without damaging the doors and...

    I purchased a 2018 CRV Touring just before Thanksgiving. I was mildly excited as this was my first new car purchase and I'm 59. I felt fairly safe with the oil dilution issue since my CRV was an 11/18 build. One of the last 18's built - it already had the "fix." I did notice that it...

    I got my first oil change Monday. 5000 miles. Checked when I got home it was almost a quart overfilled. I'm sure they put in 4.5. quarts. Took it back and they drained some out. I know this has been posted before but this is a reminder to new and old members. Check it after you have it changed..

    All, I am looking at a 2018/19 CR-V EX AWD with back-up sensors and roof rails.. Well... in TX, AWD is not as prevalent as in colder areas, so finding one with the correct build out is a bit tough. What I have heard from one dealer is that you can't special order a build out from the factory...
  20. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So...I've been complaining to the dealer for months about high oil levels and fuel smell in oil, and kept getting the "never heard of it" and/or "perfectly normal" shuffle. I decided to just screw it and wait for the motor to explode and let them fix it. Six weeks ago I had an oil change...
