  1. Early Lease Rollover Advice

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi all, I'm new to leasing and have a question that I hope I can get some independent answers for. I have a 2018 CRV Touring leased for 4 yrs - picked up in April 2018. I've done just over 40km on it already which is ahead of my 24km/yr allowance. Dealer contacted me this week and is...
  2. Early Wear and Fading on fitted Weather Tech front mats

    Has anyone experience early wear (scrapes, discoloration) on black WT front floor mats?
  3. Early thoughts on CR-V Hybrid

    Hybrid CR-V
    There doesn't seem to be much here on the hybrid (I guess because it's not available in the USA yet) so I thought I'd post some notes and thoughts that might help anyone considering one in the future. It's a bit long, so TL;DR - we really like and it's working well. Very minor criticisms. Bit...
  4. Did I get the Nov. 'fix' early?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I was in for a driveability issue on 10/4. Same complaint I had it in for in March. Moderate to hard accel at around 3500 rpm it starts to feel like it has a fuel problem. And the long term fuel trim is usually right at -7% (rich). I drove this time. Last time a tech drove and accelerated like...
  5. I know its early but I have a question on 2019?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I know its only January, but I'm curious as the 2018 Honda CRV model is nearly unchanged from the 2017. I understand the 2018 is a great vehicle and I'm on the fence with a purchase. With that being said, ~$35,000 is still a lot of money and I'm not terribly fond of the CRV's HUD/controls. When...
  6. Very early impressions

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Picked up my 2018 EX L with NAV this past Saturday. Love the Molton Lava color (not to many around). Fit and Finish are very good (for an American built car). Car is tight with no rattles (so far). Road and engine noise are noticeable. Seats are a bit firm. Some neat electronics, cubby holes...
  7. Too early to use Fuel Injection Cleaner on the 2017?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Is it too early to start using the Techron Fuel System cleaner on new vehicles? I started using this on my 08 accord only after I came to know about this product when I was around 90K miles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Is it too early to speculate on what may be improved in the 2018 CR-V?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I plan on purchasing the 2017 CRV in August or September of this year. Does anyone have any idea when the 2018 will be out? I always thought new cars typically come out September/October, but it seems like the 2017 didn't make it to the show room floors until late December. I really like...
  9. Early !996 CRV Valve lash clearances

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Good day; I have a 1996 Honda CRV import - about to do the timing belt. Since the valve cover is off, figure it would be a great time to adjust the int/exh valve clearances. This is a non vtec engine, 2.0 naturally aspirated B20B engine. Would anyone know what the intake and exhaust valve...
  10. Looking at early 2000's CR-V, after some advice

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hey guys, Newby here from Australia, and to Honda's. I'm currently cruising around on a Suzuki GS500 motorcycle but am looking to sell & get a car again for various reasons. One vehicle in particular im looking at is the Honda CRV (probably around a 2002 model), however, reading up on them...
  11. Headlights on auto turn on too early

    Problems & Issues
    It's not even dark at all and the headlights turn on and setting is set to minimal mode. Anybody feel the same? Maybe dealer service can do an adjustment or maybe just go to manual on and off..
  12. 5th gear too early - 2011 CR-V

    Problems & Issues
    I notice that my 2011 CR-V shifts really early into 5th (around 78 km or 48 mph). This leads to low rpms when driving 80 kph or 50 mph. Rpms are about 1500 at this speed, and engine feels like it has no power in this rev range. Almost like when you shift too soon in a manual car, and the car...
  13. 2001 Engages Overdrive Gear Way Too Early - CR-V EX, AT, 68k miles

    Problems & Issues
    Good day, all. We recently bought a used 2001 CR-V with 68,000 miles about a week ago. Test drove fine. Drove home fine. All was well. The other day, I noticed that it shifted into overdrive gear way too soon. I did a drain and fill of the tranny fluid myself and what came out was pretty badly...
  14. I've re-set my maintanence minder early - what have i missed?

    Maintenance and Service
    My 2007 CRV just came up on 60k. I've been changing oil every 5k and re-setting the maintanence minder early all along. Because of the early re-sets zero service codes have appeared. I just realized this when I came across this post.
  15. Looking to purchase an early 2000's CRV

    Shopping & Test Driving
    We my g/f and I a looking to get a Honda CR-V. Those in real world we know love them. But we are finding them hard to locate. We have a Budget of 6-8,000. It's amazing how these things hold their value. I have been looking at both the NADA and KBB guides. Both list the early (sub 04)...
