  2. Any experience with Ebay / Generic Rails?

    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    Have been toying with the idea of getting roof rails for my 2019 EXL. These won't be in heavy use, it's more just for the rare occasions like picking up a christmas tree / other rare large items. I won't be carrying Kayaks or anything like that ;) So just curious, does anyone have experience...
  3. 2015 CRV Head Unit Replacement Experience

    Mobile Electronics
    Hey guys, I used lots of info on here to to plan my head unit install. This post will rehash a bit of what is already known about replacing the head unit, but I wanted to get all of the info into one place. As we all know the stock head unit, speaker, and sub combo is trash. I elected to...

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Can those who had the Mode 2 fix applied let me know how much mpg loss you experienced after the fix? I know Honda says 0.7 mpg loss but want to know if this is accurate or if you experienced more than that?
  5. Oil Extractor - My experience today...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Given all the oil concerns - I've decided to be extra safe and change my 2018 CRV EX-L's oil (but not the filter) when the maintenance minder indicates the oil is at 50% life. I'll then have the oil and filter changed (and the Maintenance Minder reset) when it hits 100%. It hit that 50% point...
  6. One 2018 CR-V owner's experience

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    My wife has really enjoyed her first five months with the CR-V EX. She has logged 3,700 miles. She likes the turbo acceleration, the 26-mpg, the back-up camera, the comfortable seats, the handling – she says it really hugs the road just like her old Subaru, and she likes some of the safety...
  7. HondaCare & Dealer Experience - Very Slow

    Maintenance and Service
    As I posted in the Problems forum, my 2015 CR-V broke down with a flashing CEL, misfiring, and a loss of power on my way home from visiting my parents. Thankfully, I had HondaCare on my vehicle and had it towed back to my dad's dealer. They took about a week but returned it after replacing...
  8. My Dealer Experience With Oil Dilution...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    So...I've been complaining to the dealer for months about high oil levels and fuel smell in oil, and kept getting the "never heard of it" and/or "perfectly normal" shuffle. I decided to just screw it and wait for the motor to explode and let them fix it. Six weeks ago I had an oil change...
  9. No Heat Shield on Cat Converter - Your Experience

    Problems & Issues
    Hello everyone, The heat shield on my 2009 CR-V broke and had to be taken off. It split, bent, etc and was beyond welding and/or clamping back on. The repair is pricey - OEM parts only. 1 mechanic from a quality shop, said I "should" have it. Another guy from a quality shop said, I don't need...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Read at your pleasure. Honda is lying to those of us who have this problem. No, it's not cold weather driving. No, it's not short distance driving either. https://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=244271

  13. Honda Service Experience

    Maintenance and Service
    I had a not exemplary experience with my first Honda service "A-1". This is to be an oil change and a tire rotation and free inspection. This cost $86. I'm not use to the high cost, but I paid up thinking I was getting Honda service and products. When I got home I noticed that they put in...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Hello All, Has anyone tried using LED or HID replacement bulbs for the low beam (projector housing). I have never had to do this with my other vehicles as they have stock HIDs. In case of led how do you position the chip ? Do you position the diodes to throw light horizontally (chip facing...

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Reprise - How many still experience or have experienced the "whine" or "whistle" I purchased a used 2013 EXL AWD on Monday with only 50K on it.

  19. Typical Dealer Experience - No Shame

    Problems & Issues
    Went to Honda dealer for $199 brake job. I was shocked they resurfaced the rotors and not try to up sell me on new rotors. Then I get "the list" of all the bogus repairs I will need or I will die a horrid death. Like my transmission fluid looks contaminated. $189.00. They could not seem...
