  1. 2010 Honda CRV Excessive Oil Consumption

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi everyone, We are the owners of a 2010 Honda CRV with 80,000 miles on it. Bought it used from the local Honda dealership about 3 years ago. Last week I noticed a buzzing/humming sound almost from underneath the car, the oil light blinking on and off and the car just not seeming right. Since I...
  2. Is this excessive battery corrosion (Photos)

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just passed the 30,000 mile mark on my '17 CR-V EX-L and while looking over the engine compartment I noticed that the positive battery terminal had a lot of corrosion around it. Would you considered this to be an excessive amount of corrosion? Should I ask my dealer to clean up the...
  3. 2009 Honda CR-V 4WD excessive driving noise, louder pitch change with speed, rear whe

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I’ve been having excessive road noise that changes with speed and turns (a humming that grows to nearly a roaring). I find that it goes away when turning to the right at moderate speed (where the slight weight shift and tilt from inertia removes some of the weight load from the right side of the...
  4. Question on excessive rear brake wear....

    Maintenance and Service
    Replaced my rear pads and rotors about 1000 miles ago, on one side both pads were down to the metal. Now after 1000 miles the same thing happening again. I did check and grease the slide pins, the pistons seemed to move freely but again, one side, both pads down to metal. Time for a new caliper...
  5. Warning Message: Excessive Oil in Crankcase

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So I was driving at around 60 MPH on the highway and to my surprise I heard the 'bing' sound which plays right when a warning message is coming up (i.e. Tire Pressures Low, Radar Obstructed, etc). The message showed an icon of a crankcase looking thing and read "Excessive Oil in Crankcase". I...
  6. Excessive Tailpipe Moisture - 2017 Touring

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    On my 2017 CRV Touring, I have moisture dripping from both tailpipes. I didn't notice it before winter set in. What is causing this and what is the moisture. It doesn't smell like raw gas.
  7. Excessive Wind Noise at High Speeds in 2018 Honda CRV

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, Searched the forums, and found one other thread that seems to be due to Active Noise Cancellation. This isn't the case with my car. This is the 3rd CRV I've purchased in the last year. The biggest difference from the 2 2017s that I had is that at speeds greater than 50mph, on driver...
  8. Excessive weird whooshing sound!

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I've noticed that with the hood open and the CRV running the closer I put my head to the engine the more noise I hear. My question, is that normal? Or is it something I should be concerned about?
  9. Excessive noise when Windows and tailgate are open

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I notice there is quite a bit of noise when I have both my driver side Window or door and the tailgate open while the engine is running. Did anyone have similar issue? My car is still under 100 miles I hope it's not a engine issue.
  10. Excessive Brake Wear

    Problems & Issues
    Hello everyone! Job and real life caused me to disappear for a bit, but finally have a little time to post. Anyways, 2012 CRV still problem free, now has 50,000 miles mostly problem free. Yes the VTC actuator still grinds a bit but I have lived with it. Had the tranny and differential fluids...
  11. Excessive wind noise at highway speeds

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just picked up a 2017 EX-L, and generally love it, but the one thing that mars my enjoyment is the wind noise at speeds above 50mph. Not sure if something is wrong with my particular car or if it's endemic to the design, but I get an annoying buffeting sound that seems to come from the top of...
  12. 2012 CRV 92k miles Excessive Oil Usage / Low Compression

    Problems & Issues
    Happy New Year 2017! Any help is appreciated. I've seen lots of posts for the 2011 and older, but not on the 2012+ for this issue. Saw one 2012 CRV post that sounded similar but they had very low mileage so I'm guessing my issue may be different. Currently at 92k miles, always used Mobile...
  13. Excessive Oil Consumption 2010 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    My wife's 2010 CRV was a company car. It was owned by the same business for the life of the car. Because it was a company car, all the maintenance was top flight. Oil changes were completed at the dealer. We took over driving it in 2013 after my wife had an accident in her Accord. When she...
  14. Honda CRV 2015 - excessive wind/road noise

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, I recently purchased a 2015 CRV (SE model) and am quite unhappy with the "Honda Driving experience". In addition to the vibration issue (vibration at idle is terrible, looks like the fix is not available in Canada yet), another issue is the excessive wind/road noise. The ride is bumpy...
  15. Do new CRVs (2012+) still have tire cupping or excessive tire wear issues?

    Problems & Issues
    I had one of the 2010s that did this big time. Does the current model still have this problem?
  16. 2007 CRV Excessive road noise from the rear or bearing noise

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Newbie here and thanks for your site. I am on my third CRV for my wife and plan on getting a 2013 new one for her and keeping the 2007 for myself. Don't drive the 07' much but when I did the other day thought the noise from the rear was excessive. I rotate the tires myself and when I did have...
  17. 2007 4WD C-RV Excessive Tire Wear.

    Problems & Issues
    Since new we've been plagued with excessive wheel/tire noise at all speeds. It began within the first two years, approximately 20K on the clock, with the original Continental tires. Dealer diagnoses attributed the symptom to tire wear(?!) I promptly replaced the tires with new Dunlops and had...
  18. Excessive Oil Loss in 2010 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    So 2 days ago I notice that my engine is starting to sound funny. Then yesterday morning, my oil light flashed on and went off. I pulled in to the nearest auto parts store, turned off the engine, waited 20 minutes and checked my oil. Imagine my dismay to find that my dipstick was not...
  19. 2010-11 seat excessive lumbar support

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I want to buy an SUV. After extensive research, I narrowed down my choice to Honda's CR-V. I'm convinced that it's the best SUV for my needs with basically no other in the market w/ the same reliability record and quality. However, the ergonomics of the front seats is awful for me. All the...
