  1. Broken motor mount, drove like that for a while. Issue?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So my crv got in a accident at 900km. Got fixed up and I drove it for about another 2000km with the engine seeming to vibrate quite a bit. In those 2000km I was trying to get the body shop to look at it again, and they finally admitted it drove funny. So it got looked at again under insurance...
  2. I test drove a 19 RAV4 today

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I gave my impressions on the RAV4 forum but I'll post it here in case anyone is interested. By the way, the competitor I drove was a CX-5 turbo which I felt was better than the CR-V in terms of engine performance and refinement.
  3. Test drove a 1998 EX

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    It's a manual transmission, excellent shape. I didn't find a deficit in horsepower (126) with the B20 engine, seemed fine for me with the 5 speed. It ran/drove excellent, smooth and easy shifting unlike the manual transmission 2002 Toyota Camry I test drove with a slipping clutch. The only thing...
  4. I bought a 99 and drove it home for 250

    Greetings & Introductions
    I love this cr-v EX!
  5. Accidentally drove over a curb yesterday

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Yesterday, after refuelling at one of my local gas stations, I was leaving the station and I was eager to make a difficult left turn as I could tell I had clearance so I went for it not realizing my course went straight over the curb (it was dark, the station was poorly lit and the curb cutout...
  6. Test drove a 2017 - road noise?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just felt the engine noise was louder than my 2016 Tucson. Was it just me or is there a lot of engine noise when accelerating? It's such a short test drive that its hard to get a good feel for it. That and the weird middle console sliding tray were the only issues I noticed.
  7. Test drove the 2017 AWD Touring This Afternoon...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    This afternoon I test drove the 2017 AWD Touring at AutoNation Honda (Lithia Springs, Georgia)... If it'd been white/beige I'd probably have bought it right then, but it was black and that's not great in the South during the summer. But, they have a white/beige at a sister dealership, and it...
  8. Just test drove the 2015 EX-L. Weak off the line, but great overall

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi, My wife and I have been looking to buy a new CUV for the past few years and the CR-V was always a front-runner for us. We didn't buy the 2014 because of the small-overlap crash test, and we're still waiting for the 2015 results. Not sure when it comes out though. We drove the 2015 EX-L...
  9. Drove it home yesterday

    Greetings & Introductions
    New CR- V owner but not my first Honda (84 Prelude; 91 Accord). Drove Foresters since 2001 but now back to Honda and hoping this CR-V is as good as the other two Hondas. CR-V is a Polished Metallic with AWD.
  10. Just test drove a '14 EX

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Looking at getting another CRV. The 04 will soon be our sons. My how nice they are. I like the increase in power plus you get better mpg's. The ride felt very nice and the seats were very comfortable. I'm not big on all the gadgets and what not but I feel the interior was designed very...
  11. Drove through big puddle, now runs hot and P0420 Catalyst Efficiency Code

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey all. problem here and looking for the collective wisdom of the CRV Owners Club. I drove through a big mud puddle last week and the car missed under load for a few miles--I just kept driving because it was pouring out and after about 10 or 15 minutes the miss went away. The CEL flickered...
  12. Test drove a '07 CR-V, very disappointed!

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hey guys, For about a year and a half i've owned a Honda Civic Hybrid, 2008 model, and to be honest, to me, it was the best car ever. Drove like a peach, never broke down on me and the CVT worked flawlessly. Had a lot of miles on it though, and thought it was time to upgrade, so i was looking...
  13. I test drove the 2013 crv yesterday

    Shopping & Test Driving
    They are arriving at the dealers in the Los Angeles area. I drove an EX. All my driving has been in my 2004 crv. 1st of all there are virtually identical to the 2012s with the exception of a new color KONA COFFFEE METALIC/Mountain air metalic? My 1st impression is they have come a long way...
  14. Test drove a CR-V 2012 :-)

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I'll be in the market in the next couple of months (Sept onward) to replace my Altima. My in-laws have a 2011 CR-V and it's very nice. I saw that the 2012 was redesigned, so I stopped in, had a look, and drove one. very nice! I'm thinking by the time I'm actually going to buy the 2013's may...
  15. Drove with parking brake on (AWD '12) oops

    Problems & Issues
    I accidentally drove my 2012 AWD CRV around the parking lot with the e-brake (hand/emergency brake) on. Did I do any kind of damage to the car?
  16. Test drove a new civic today....

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I was considering one because of gas mileage. Well, I drove a manual shift sedan (I have a manual 04 cr-v) and I was not as impressed as I thought I would be. Despite the much lower center of gravity the handling wasn't much if any better than my CR-V. The shifter on the civic felt rubbery...
  17. Test drove a green tea CR-V EX today...

    Shopping & Test Driving
    First of all. Hello :) This is my first post on the forums. I've been lurking around for a couple of weeks though. I've had my eye on the green tea V for a few weeks now. It's a very sexy color. I didn't think it was that great until I saw one with my own eyes at the dealership. By far...
