  1. Different vehicles, different steering feel?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    My family currently has two '18 CR-V leases: an EX that I got last March, and an EX-L that I got in January. Whenever I'm driving the EX for a while and get back into the EX-L, it feels like the EX-L's steering is a bit looser. It's probably just my senses playing tricks with me (the...
  2. Does the Civic feel a lot faster than the CR-V?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I still can't quite get over how much faster and more responsive the Civic feels compared to the CR-V. The CVT in the Civic also feels more precise and less "rubberbandy" than the CR-V if that makes any sense and there seems to be quite a bit less throttle lag off the line. Is this consistent...
  3. Why does maintenance at Honda Dealership feel like a ripoff?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I don't know if anyone else has this same feeling but every time I bring my vehicle in the local Honda Dealership where I bought my car -- for servicing.. It just feels like a ripoff. The only reason I come here is because I got sucked into buying their warranty plan which came with a...
  4. I think I feel hesitations.

    Problems & Issues
    Just bought a 2010 Honda CR-V and have read that there are some models that have electronics modules that may cause hesitations in hot weather. While it has been hot here, it isn't abnormally hot now and I still feel a slight "hesitations," or misfiring type sensation, at speeds below 50mph. I...
  5. 2016 CRV - does it feel sluggish or does it have enough power?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi - I've been thinking about trading my 2014 Accord EX-L V6 for a 2016 CRV Touring. Previously had a 2013 Pilot. I am worried that the CRV will feel sluggish or slow compared to the V6 vehicles I have owned. I like my cars to move, when I press the gas. :) Thanks.
  6. How do you rate the Steering Wheel Feel on Gen 4 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    This my first CRV, a 2013 EX, bought it 3 weeks ago, and I am not liking the feel of the steering wheel. Feels too cheap and poorly made..... theres no good grip feel. It seems it takes alot more effort to steer. I can manage with high traffic driving because I have both hands kind of on the...
  7. I feel like I'm getting ripped off! Help!

  8. What do bad propellor shaft u-joints "feel" like ?? Long, sorry.

    Problems & Issues
    My 99 CR-V has had a shake and vibration since I got it in August. I attributed it to a bend in the right front rim which I switched with the spare rim and changed the new tire to and balanced, this helped but it still was not a big improvement. I had it on the lift the other day and let the...

  10. 2010 CRV - Doesn't feel peppy

    Performance Modifications
    I have a 2010 CRV EX-L. I know it's not a sports car, but from a stand still is it possible that even when you floor it, not much happens?? Seems to be very sluggish to take off. Anyone one else experience this? I also noticed that if I am doing 30mph, and need to accelerate to pass, I really...
  11. CRV feel heavy, like its draging

    Problems & Issues
    I flat tow the Honda behind a RV. Very careful to follow tow prep instructions in the owners manual. Last trip it felt as if the Honda gained 500lbs in wt behind the RV. When driving the CRV it did all the right things, no codes, no noise, no perceptable heat from the brakes but just felt like...
  12. Soft Brake feel

    Problems & Issues
    My CR-V has 46k on it I bought it used with 42k and one of the things I loved about it was the strong brakes. More specifically I liked the pedal modulation ad immediacy. The past couple days driving around my brakes have felt odd I have to push the pedal halfway down to get some brake bite...
