  1. 2018 CRV wheel size 18” vs 19” - help with difference

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Can anyone advise on the advantages or differences in the wheel size option? I’m comparing 2018 leftover on the lot an exl awd with a touring. The touring already has the 19” wheels. I think it feels like it handles tighter but wondering if it’s in my head bc I know there is a difference in...

  4. What is the difference between LKAS and RDM Systems?`

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Also, can these systems be kept in constant ON mode or do you need to turn them on every time you start the car? And before I am being grilled - I am in a pre-purchase of an EX model and asking based on the manual, didn't see if these can be kept ON all the time. Thanks.

    Problems & Issues
    It appears that I need to get a new VSA Modulator for my 2009 CR-V. :angryfire I looked up the part number and found that there is a different part number listed for vehicles that originated from Japan vs the ones that originated from the U.S.: Because money is an issue here, I'm would like...

    What are the differences between the 2017 and 2018 CRV's?
  7. What is the practical difference between the RDM and the LKAS?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    In human terms, what is the practical difference between the Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) and the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)? They both seem to do pretty much the same thing. Why is the RDM on by default, whereas you have to select LKAS to turn it on? Just curious.
  8. No difference in speed on downgrade between D and S

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I don't notice any difference in speed when transmission is in D or S on a downgrade. I thought S was supposed to slow the car down. I have the EXL AWD and am concerned about driving in snow where I live. Has anyone driven a 2017 in snow and encountered any problems? It seems like I am using a...

  10. New speakers alone *do* make a big difference.

    Mobile Electronics
    Adding my two cents about audio upgrades: I recently bought a used 2014 CRV LX -- everything is stock. The sound quality was aggressively mediocre, so I knew this would be my first upgrade. I didn't want to fuss with replacing the head unit because it's integrated with the camera and steering...
  11. Does you gas choice make a difference?

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    Exxon-BP, Shell, Marathon, Wal-Mart, Sheetz, Kroger. Do you get better mileage with some gas than others? Do you need fuel injection cleaners if you use name brand gas? What do you use?
  12. Official Honda Cargo Tray or WeatherTech? Worth 33$ Difference?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I'm thinking of getting a cargo liner for things like garden products/plants. I see many do like the weathertech, but as I do like the cargo floor in the upper position (makes a nice seat for changing shoes, etc!) I won't be using it that much, just as needed. Is the weathertech 33$ better? I...

    Hi. Could someone tell me what is the difference between both models? I can't find any info about it. Thanks!
  14. Touring's subwoofer does make a difference

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    When I first got the car. I was kinda disappointed by the audio system, especially when i turned up the bass. But after some tweaks on the audio setting. It sounds so much better, here are the setting that I am using. Would love to have fellow touring owners share their setting. Thanks
  15. Difference in Curb Weight Between Fwd EX-L and Fwd Touring

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I favor the Touring aesthetically because the chrome strip downplays the over sized cladding, which for me, detracts from the clean lines of the new redesigned body. I can live without the additional gadgetry of the Touring, so would I really pay $2k for a chrome strip? At this point, I don't...
  16. Any difference between 2015 vs 2016 CRV EXL

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Hi Guyz, one of my friend is planning to buy a new CRV and he is getting a pretty good deal on 2016 CRV EXL. However he is also getting a preowned 2015 CRV EXL with around 10k miles, obviously bit cheaper than 2016. For 2017 version as there are no offers, he is confused between 2016 vs 2015. I...

  19. 2016 Touring vs EX-L - wheel difference

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I'm considering the 2016 EX-L and the Touring. Perhaps my biggest single criteria for choosing a car is smoothness of ride. I like the extra bells and whistles of the Touring, but I'm concerned that the 'bigger rims' will result in a harsher ride. I test drove both models yesterday, and - on...
  20. Difference between 2WD and AWD front knuckles 2013 CRV?

    Problems & Issues
    I am trying to replace the front wheel bearings, and the axle spindle will not come out of the hub and bearing assembly. I'm going to buy a new steering knuckle and hub assembly, and was wondering if there's a difference between the 2WD and AWD knuckles? All I seem to find for sale online are...
