  1. No Device Connected

    Dear Honda:
    2018 CRV: Default Display- No Device Connected There are a number of disappointments with the 'entertainment center', display and app. Briefly, the app is not as mature or well developed as other manufacturers. Too many distractions and few self resolving conditions. I find that this is the...
  2. Maybe a dumb question rear differential on a 2014 CRV

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I have a 2WD 2014 CRV. I was going to change the rear differential fluid but looking under my car I don't see anything that looks like what I've seen in the YouTube video. Does the 2WD 2014 not have a rear differential?
  3. Honda Sensing Dumb Question

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    My lane keep assist rarely works even on well painted roads, is there some kind of light or setting that should flash when it doesnt work or do you just assume it works til it doesnt? One other question, (this is admittedly a pretty dumb test) but i wanted to test my emergency stop. I placed a...
  4. 2017 CR-V featured in Car Talk column (highlights include: dumb salesman)

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I read this the other day and thought it was somewhat interesting. I could easily see the turbo cool-down thing coming up as a question here; when I bought my CR-V, I knew that it was generally considered outdated advice...
  5. Dumb Car Play Question

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Last night I was playing around with Car Play. When I went into the bluetooth settings, I noticed that it showed my phone as not connected, and said that a bluetooth connection was not an option when the phone was connected in Car Play. So here's the dumb question - presumably one can make an...
  6. So .. Dumb question

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    and I hope I picked the right location to post it - :) My New CR-V (EX-L) came with SirusXM radio which I love :) I haven't created an account yet - but I have no idea where to find out how long the trial period is - and what if I don't contact them at all? At the end of the trial the radio...

    Okay need to change out my front struts now. Have a 2008 CRV 2wd LX. Was told my car would take the Japanese built struts over the American Built struts. Also told no spec difference btwn the struts and could order either part. Service says I need the Japanese front struts. Parts says I...
  8. Dumb n00b question...

    Problems & Issues
    Hey folks, very helpful forum. I'm looking at buying a 2003 LX AWD model, but my question is: how do I "know" that it's AWD? Without a shifter to switch to AWD anywhere, how can I be sure that I'm not being sold a 2WD? Yes, that is a dumb question...I know. Scold after answering. :) Thanks! AC
  9. a couple of dumb questions.

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    so, I've had the V a few weeks now, and am generally very happy, but..... 1, The brakes feel quite soft, and the pedal travel feels "odd" and quite long ( the pedal feels high to begin with),I have to qualify that statement, so all I can say is that it feels 'floaty' or at the very least...
  10. Overdrive? Not there on 2010? Dumb Question...

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    So, here goes a stupid question that I thought I might ask here instead of trying to figure it out... my apologies in advance! If my poor memory serves correctly, my old '00 CR-V used to have an "overdrive" button that you could disengage when you were going up steep hills, etc. I don't see...

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I need to buy a hitch for my 2007 Cr-V EX so that I can pull a trailer similar to (Only it would be like a 6' x 8') Should I go with the Curt 2"? Is it easy to install? Thanks in advance!!!:)
  12. really dumb question

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Hi all, Here is a really dumb question, but I'll ask anyway (I'm an educator and firmly believe that the only truly dumb questions are the unasked ones) - if I press the "lock" button once on my key to lock my vehicle, is the security system engaged, or do I need to press the button a second...
  13. Dumb 4wd question

    Performance Modifications
    Sorry if its the wrong spot to post this. Anyways, a friend told me the RT4wd only works up to 40mph. After that its strickly 2wd. Seeing as its mechanical, and based off wheel slippage, I dont really believe him, but I figured I'd ask. Thanks
  14. Need "dumb" key for 07 CR-V

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I need a "dumb" key for my 2007 CR-V that doesn't have any electronics and can get wet. By "wet" I mean that I need to take the "dumb" key with me underwater when I go scuba diving. All I need the key to do is unlock the door so I can get to the real key I hid inside the cabin. Does anyone...
