    We have some very messy kids/toddlers and were looking in to getting the OEM rear seat cover. (I don't have enough posts to include a link but it is the neoprene one that you can get from Honda - College Hills looks to have the best price) We just got a 2017 CRV but I thought I would ask the...

    Hi, I rotated my tyres and accidentally broke one of my front wheel stud. I tried to do some research from youtube and google and it seems complicated from my non-mechanic experience. Has anyone tried it before on a Honda CR-V 2003(front) without grinding the main hub and new stud head for...

    Hey all, About a year ago I bought a very inexpensive set of LEDs bulbs from an ebay vendor to improve the interiour lighting in my 2015 CRV Touring. Just want to report that they were of poor quality. My advice is to consider the more expensive brand name ones (e.g., Sylvania) you can buy...

  7. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I recently inherited an '09 CRV when my wife got a new '15 Pilot. She likes to have them dealer serviced while under warranty and that is not an argument I can win, but once I get them I do my own work. I've been thinking of getting an OBD scanner for the toolbox and while browsing around came...

    Plan to install a back-up camera for safety reasons (small kids playing behind vehicle..) and since it seems I cannot get used to the limited back view of my 2005 CR-V.

    Does anyone have any experience with the power chip that has been advertised on this site? Does it work as advertised and does it effect the Honda warranty? I have a 2012 CR-V and am considering installing it. Any thoughts?
  17. Shopping & Test Driving
    Thanks for all the folks that have contributed information here on the 2012 CR-V. We started shopping via email, and my wife's car broke down, and with estimated $1,500 in repairs. Probably the amount I was looking for as discount to purchase the '12 CR-V. Of about 11 dealers, only 3 came back...

    My 2007 CR-V has ~36,000 miles and needs new tires. Consumer Reports magazine liked these, and they sell them at the local discount chain place. This model seemed to be a nice balance of performance and longevity. Any experience with these tires?

    I have an 09 LX and have always liked the chrome grille and plate light on the better trim levels. I looked up pricing on the parts and the work required to do the upgrade and came up with about $200.00 and two hours. Not so bad... I was poking around on eBay and saw what looked like chrome...
