  2. CR-V 2013 EX-L Head Unit Install - Very Difficult

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi everyone, I have made the (maybe mistaken) decision to try installing a new head unit in my 2013 CR-V EX-L by myself. Now I'm pretty stumped.

  5. First time Honda owner

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello everyone! I’ve recently purchased my 2019 Honda CR-V EX-L. This is my first Honda ownership. I’ve own nothing but GM trucks before this CR-V, so it was a leap of faith. I’m quite excited about this ownership since I’ve heard nothing but praise from other CR-V owners who have owned them...
  6. 2011 EX-L New stereo maintain factory backup camera

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I'm looking to replace the factory head unit in my 200 EX-L CRV which currently has navigation and a back-up camera. The new head unit is a Pioneer and has an RCA input for a backup camera but of course I can't find any sort of adapter which will let me use the factory backup camera with the...
  7. Upgrade to HD-Radio (factory or otherwise) in 2017 EX-L?

    Mobile Electronics
    I was one of those people who stupidly believed the brochure, window sticker and website and made the decision a year ago to move from the Touring down to the EX-L because the EX-L still had HD Radio, which is important to me. The other things didn't matter, since I use NAV in my phone through...

    Greetings & Introductions
    On 12/1/17, I purchased a 2018 CR-V EX-L which my wife and I thoroughly enjoy. One curiosity question: going into the garage late one evening, I heard a humming noise coming from the area between the two rear wheels. It sounded like a small fan running. Was not very loud at all. Started the...
  9. 2017 EX-L Battery Life in Accessory Mode

    Problems & Issues
    My car wouldn't start after 20 minutes in accessory mode. The dealership told me the battery is small and that 10 minutes in accessory mode is pushing it and anything after that I'll need a jump. Is this true? Are you kidding me? Is there a solution to this limitation?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I am picking up a new 2018 CR-V Ex-L next week and have an extended warranty question (if this is the right forum). The dealer offered a 10 yr or 120K CNA warranty for $2,000, said this is a better deal than the Honda warranty. This is my first Honda, owned Toyota and Subarus before and never...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I'm debating between the 2017 Honda CRV EX-L and touring trim levels. I have done some homework and have learned that the difference between these two trim levels is not that drastic. However, being my first CRV, I want to ask you all which trim level should I purchase. Would the additional...
