  1. Playing music from a USB thumb drive - 2019 CR-V EX

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Just finished my first road trip in my CR-V. I loaded a small (1 GB) thumb drive with several folders of mp3 files. These were mp3 files that I've played successfully multiple times on my computer and mp3 players. Here's what I found. Most tracks played fine, but about 1/4th of the tracks did...

  5. Do you drive with ECO on or off?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Do you usually keep the ECO on or off when driving? Or do you turn on the ECO button during highway drives and keep it off for city driving? I find ECO to be sluggish so I prefer to keep it off but not sure the impact it has on the mpg.

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi Folks- I was asked by a number of members to report on our new Passport. I stepped out of the forum as we traded our 17 CRV Touring for a 19 Passport Touring. Again, not for the OD issue, but my wife fell for the Passport, wanting more cargo space, a higher ride, more power and AWD. So we...

  20. 2017 CRV front wheel drive. Limited slip causes no power going uphill?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Really surprised today when going up medium steep short climb that because there was wheel slip, the engine kept slowing down until the car stopped. Do you really have to disengage limited slip to drive up hills? I could floor the petal and still get no revs out of the engine. Is this right?
