  1. CarPlay issue fixed.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Probably the only issue I've experienced on both my 2017 CR-V and 2018 Accord is that sometimes the infotainment system didn't recognize when I plugged in my iPhone. I saw on another thread that they resolved this by changing a setting on their iPhone, and because that fix worked for me, I...
  2. Looking at the new 2019 CR-V, has Honda fixed the issues?

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hi All, My wife bought our first Honda CR-V in 1997. It was a great car. I leased a 2008 CR-V and loved it! Purchased it at the end of lease and my wife has been driving it ever since. I leased a 2012 Subaru Impreza hatchback that runs well and is cost-effective to operate but right away...
  3. If fixed?

    Maintenance and Service
    Is there a way to determine from the VIN if your CR-V had the “fix” during build?
  4. White Smoke out Tailpipe - Cracked Block fixed CHEAP!!!!

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey guys. Just had a big victory with the CRV. Had a crack in the block and was able to repair it with the pour-in 'stop leak' stuff. Actually worked. Let me explain: I picked up a 2003 CRV with issues. It was cheap so I can't complain. Anyway, oil was overfilled and was blowing white smoke...
  5. 2017 CRV Touring --Has anyone have or fixed rattle around the engine cover?

    Maintenance and Service
    Had a rattle from 1st day I purchased around the dash/engine cover area. It is only noticeable at idle and when I accelerate. I can always hear it, but can't locate. Going in soon for 1st service and want to make sure its fixed.
  6. 1999 Roof Noise / Supports need to be fixed?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    Hi there, I'm a new 1999 CRV owner (EX AWD AUTO) and new to the forum. I am currently in Costa Rica and my 1999 CRV is making some weird noises whenever we close the doors shut and go over some uneven bumps / roads. It sounds like the roof is flexing every time a jolt happens or the car is...
  7. Valve Cover Gasket '15 Fixed Under Warranty

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    A while back in a welcome post I mentioned finding small oil deposits around the base of the valve cover after the fist oil change. I cleaned it off and noticed oil had returned by the second service visit to the dealership. They concurred it could be leaking, cleaned it off and tightened the...
  8. Rear Door Alignment (Fixed)

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Thought I'd share this in case anyone else needed it. It took all of 2 minutes. So my FWD EX-L CRV came with the passenger rear door misaligned. It was protruding quite a bit as you can hopefully tell from this picture. You can see it by looking at the top of the door versus the middle. It was...
  9. 2011 CRV starts then dies: FIXED!

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    2011 CRV EX-L I just bought ran fine for three days then all of a sudden it would start but die after two seconds. Turns out it was a defective gas gauge and it was out of gas. Gauge showed three bars and somehow I drove it home on fumes, parked it and there wasn`t enough gas to get it going...
  10. Auto Climate Control Glitch (stuck on recirc, full A/C load); ECON button fixed it

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Last night I notice my engine appeared to be "lugging" at idle after a half-hour trip. I then noticed that the climate control was on "recirc", despite it being a beautiful day, and the difference between the outside and inside temps only being a few degrees. Manually cycling the A/C off...
  11. Is the vibration issue fixed or not?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Honda claims it was fixed, but I'm still reading people that bought it recently still experiencing the issue. Any thoughts on this?
  12. Has Honda gotten the AC compressor problem of the gen2 and 3's fixed yet?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I'm considering a new 2016 CRV this fall during sell offs and am wondering if the AC compressor issue like with my 2007 has been addressed by Honda. I was lucky to get 98000 before my compressor clutch went out, and didn't have one of the "black death" failures. I was unlucky in that the clutch...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Honda CR-V Seat thread separating. Need to remove bottom seat cover to get it repaired, it was unraveling quickly Remove Plastic Covers, don’t need to be graceful-they won’t break. Then loosen all 4 bolts with an M14. No I don’t have a dog. Then tilt the seat up to disconnect wires. I...
  14. 1998 AT Transmission problem Fixed leak, slipping when warm

    Problems & Issues
    I'm pulling my hair out trying to get to the bottom of a transmission issue on my 98 CR-V. For some time I had some erratic shifting, usually going up hills or under load, so I added some Honda transmission fluid, and the problem basically went away of a couple of weeks. Unfortunately the...
  15. Can This be Fixed? (Pictures)

    This is the drivers seat. The leather is all wrinkled up. This is the pillar beside the drivers seat. I guess this has happened from the seat belt hitting the pillar. Any help will be appreciated.

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Has anyone test driven the 2016 model to see of the vibration issue is fixed? :confused: Thank you much in advance for the info.
  17. Help what needs to be fixed here!?

    Problems & Issues
    First off- I am going straight to the car wash after posting this embarrassingly dirty picture of my car. Secondly- I got in a little fender bender as you can see. I backed into the corner of a huge truck and this was the result. Im posting here because I cant figure out where exactly I had to...
  18. 1998 CRV AC Problem Fixed.

    Problems & Issues
    I had my engine changed with a JDM engine. But after the swap the AC was not working. The compressor was not engaging. I took it to an AC specialist and he told me their were leaks in the rubber hose and the O rings in several spots. I got that changed and recharged and now the AC is working...

  20. White smoke on acceleration only fixed.

    Problems & Issues
    My 98 crv was blowing white/bluish smoke on acceleration only. I was stumped. I thought it was my rings but the car did not blow smoke when I held the accelerator constant at high rpms. I thought it was my valve seals or guides but it did not smoke on startup or stoplight. I recently changed my...
