    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...

    Today my 2019 EX was able to read from my 1 terabyte USB portable drive I had lying around, but this drive has all my music and videos (close to 300gb of data). I wanted to use this drive that already has my full collection instead of copying only some songs/videos to another USB flash drive...

    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.

    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...

    My CRV is less than 2 years old and has only 14,000 miles (all highway miles). I just got a maintenance minder code that says I should change my rear differential fluid. It has been my experience that rear differential fluid should be changed around 30,000 miles. I contacted the dealer and they...

    Not used to having a car without a CD player (I'm just old fashioned). But my kids just suggested I put my music on a flash drive and plug it into the USB port in my new 2019 CR-V. I have a Mac Desktop computer and a flash drive. Can someone help me with the steps I need to do to get the...

    I am getting ready to rebuild a rear strut on my 2000 CRV SE. Does anyone know what size cup or socket I will need to drive the bushing into the shock? It has to be a cup or socket because of the way the bushing is made - I had to order the bushing from the California parts depot and I want to...

    I just purchased for my daughter a 2012 CR-V EX. She wants a caddy for her iphone. I am considering one that mounts in the CD player slot. I have read reviews from some that these thpes of holders cause the player to constantly search for a CD. Has anyone had any experience with these types of...

    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?

    2nd post here. Just bought a 2018 CRV Touring model here in Texas today. I need to drive to California tomorrow with it. About 1300 miles. How should I drive it? I read somewhere that I shouldn't use cruise control. I don't know how the heck I could do that. I don't plan on treating it harshly...

    I've been hearing some strange squeaking noises recently. Also, I started hearing a "bong" sound when I was in reverse & turning sharply one way or the other. I took it to my mechanic & he said that the drive shaft had a problem with where it connected and could be removed, or replaced for...

    2011 CRV w/105,000 miles. Got 30.1 MPG on last tank. Took it in for my oil change and they tried to sell me on new spark plugs and a new drive belt. Should I take the plunge on either? Both? Thanks for running a great forum. Lab in Texas

    I recently inherited my Dad's 2012 CR-V, and I'm having a problem when I play music stored on a USB drive. Although the information contained in the MP3 tags is correct, the songs don't play in the correct order - i.e., first number 1, then number 2, and so on. They're not even listed...
