  2. 09 CR-V Oil Pan/Pan Bolt Leaking Issues? Dealership Pricing on Oil Change?

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    So this is kind of a twofer. We just took my fiance's car in to a local Honda dealership to have them do the airbag recall and change the oil while they're at it since i don't have time to do it right now. I was planning to try running some Engine Restore in her car, as its starting to consume...
  3. Now I'm scared! Am I making a mistake?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Now I am scared! I came here to this forum and other CR-V forums because I'm buying a new 2019 CR-V next week. (The car I plan to buy should be delivered this coming week. Here in So. California the selection of AWD is limited, so I wasn't able to buy one of the lot in the color I want.) And I...
  4. Honda Dealership Told Me Not To Ever Changed Power Steering Fluid

    Maintenance and Service
    Hello Fellow CRV Friends, I went to a local Honda dealership yesterday to get my power steering fluid changed out. I have 122,000 miles on my 2007 CRV and it has not ever been changed. The manager in charge of the service area suggested that I just leave it alone because Honda has no...
  5. Starter Replacement Cost - Dealership?

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    The starter in my 2007 CR-V needs to be replaced. The dealer quoted me a price of around $900. $523 for the part and $350 for labor (plus tax and misc. charges). Can anyone verify if this cost is accurate or not? They offered an after market part for about $150 less, but not worth it to me...
  6. Servicing at another dealership

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi everyone. It's been a year since I bought a cr-v. Is there any downsides or gotchas in doing the regular service main at a different dealership from the one where I purchased it? Thank you.
  7. Honda Service @ Dealership

    Maintenance and Service
    Hello all, I am sorta new to this forum. Had a 2007 CR-V until 2014 went to the dark side for three years now back to a Honda with a 2017 CR-V. My question is about needed maintenance VS high pressure service advisers trying to use scare tactics to sell what I deem as unnecessary service. The...
  8. Poor Dealership Non-Service

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    So this is a combo rant and question - My '17 touring's tires have been wearing unevenly. They're wearing faster on the inside of tire and it's pretty noticeable when you're driving about 45-55 mph. It's a fast womp-womp-womp. Anyways, I've had it in to a dealer once to check it out. They...

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Hello everyone, this is my first posting! Took my 2007 to get oil changed at local honda dealer, they put regular oil instead of synthetic! How bad of trouble am I in? Always used synthetic since new!!!
  10. CR-V damaged by hail while in dealership's possession

    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...

  12. Dealership Experiences

    I live in Fresno, CA and am finding much better prices (2018 CRV 2WD EX-L w/navi) in SoCal than here or Norcal . A few in the Bay Area are promising but against more dealers down south it does not quite cut it. Went to a local dealer here advertising MSRP prices. When asked how much can you...
  13. Engine code came back P0456, back to the dealership

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    The 2017 Touring is back to Concord Honda today. The same code that appeared 2 weeks ago came back a few days after the first visit to the same dealership. They reset the code initially and said they did a leak test and did not find any and to just watch out for it. Well it came back, plugged...
  14. Free dealership oil changes synthetic blend or fully synthetic?

    Maintenance and Service
    Does my wife's 2015 take the 0w20 synthetic blend or fully synthetic? We have been taking advantage of the free dealership oil changes, and I attempted to purchase a couple quarts from the dealership, and I was given conflicting information on which one the car takes. The parts counter guy...

  18. Why does maintenance at Honda Dealership feel like a ripoff?

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    I don't know if anyone else has this same feeling but every time I bring my vehicle in the local Honda Dealership where I bought my car -- for servicing.. It just feels like a ripoff. The only reason I come here is because I got sucked into buying their warranty plan which came with a...
  19. Dealership Lost My Key

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    My CRV is in the dealership service shop, and they've lost my keys! I know because they called me and asked if I took them. When, I called back to follow up, they had told me that they cut me a new key. Fine, but I have my other key here and the spare, emergency key. If they cut me a new key...
  20. Dealership service interval schedule.

    Maintenance and Service
    I'd like some thoughts and opinions on whether the dealership offered service interval routine is worth the cost. My local dealership charges a pretty penny for various things at mileage intervals. Upon looking at what they do for the cost, it seems like a lot of this stuff takes only a minute...
