    Well... it finally happened. I've been on this site for probably a year, but never made a post. On friday, my baby gave up. 2003 Honda Crv cut out on me. The engine would crank but not turn over.

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    2013 CR-V EX with 38,000 miles. I've noticed a "cricket" like sound while driving. Seems to be coming from the right side of the dashboard. It stops when the car comes to a stop. I almost thought it was something with the heat/AC but I've tried turning both on and off and the sound is still there.

    Hi, Newbie here. My daughter has a 2009 Honda CRV making a thumping noise under the hood. It's random and there is not one single event that makes it happen although it does seem to only happen after she takes her foot off the pedal or at idle. She was able to capture this video which I...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    We are looking to purchase my wife a new SUV and ultimately settled on the CR-V. Then I started researching common problems(big mistake!) with the CR-V and quickly came across the oil dilution issue. After researching for awhile, it seems it is assumed to be still an issue with the 2019 models...

    Problems & Issues
    My 2011 CRV with 95,000 miles has recently started showing the low oil pressure light at low speeds, then it goes out after a second or two. Oil pressure at an idle reads 30 psi according to the reader, but no check engine light so it did not throw a code. It is very predictable as you slow...
