    Hi all. I have looked to see if anyone else has asked this question here... Does the power passenger seat in the 2018 EX-L fold flat in the forward direction? I can use the power control to make it recline as flat as possible, which if I move the seat forward all the way and remove the head...

    When I got my 2015 CRV Rx home from the dealer, it was certified preowned, I discovered there was a screw in the front right tire, the same screw that the dealer used to put the license plates on. I brought it back that day and they put a plug in it. Now 25 miles later, my low tire pressure...

  8. Goodyear Tires on 2008 CR-V / Flat Spot

    Problems & Issues
    Took my 2008 CR-V (AWD) to local repair shop as I was sure that the bearing in the rear wheel was going bad, rear was noisy on the highway. I was surprised when the shop said the bearings are fine, the tires have a "flat spot". He went on to say that it's critical to have the tires rotated...

    Problems & Issues
    My 01 CR-V Will fire up up on the first try, drive down the road without missing, spitting, or sputtering. Then after about 30 mins just stops running all together. Sometimes it will start back up and go another 100 yards down the road before stopping again, sometimes it wont. Once it stops...

  12. Replace passenger seat with HR-V passenger seat to fold flat?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Anyone have any experience replacing the passenger seat with a different cars seat? Ideally, I'd like my 2013 CRV's front seat to fold all the way forward, like in "Long Mode" for the HR-V. Would it be as easy as buying the replacement HR-V seat and having it installed? Thanks in advance!

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I saw the new 2017 CRV last week at a local dealership, so disappointed:( I've been waiting fir the 2017, all the descriptions said there was finally going to be a flat cargo deck. Well it's not. Not only do the second row seats not fold flat, there is almost a well in the area behind the second...
  16. Flat Tire and TPMS did not come on

    Problems & Issues
    2014 CRV EX-L This is different. I had a flat tire on the highway. I only knew because of the tire noise. Pulled over and checked, right rear tire was flat. The TPMS never came on. I had the dealer check the TPMS system and they said it all tested good. Seems very odd to me.
  17. Clutch has become limp. Flat on the floor.

    Problems & Issues
    Hi there, can someone help me diagnose this? The clutch has completely gone; it is now always dis-engaged. I have managed to shift gears with the car turned off so was able to get it home by driving in 2nd gear, turning the engine off to stop and starting (barely) in 2nd. Honda CR-V West 1...
  18. No flat tow for 2015

    Dear Honda:
    Don't know if this has been addressed before, but you can't flat tow a 2015 CRV due to the change in the transmission. I believe this was a bad engineering decision as many folks choose a CRV for towing behind their motorhome. Had to settle for a left over 2014. No color choice, no trim...

  20. 2015 CRV - Can't FLAT TOW

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Was ready to buy a 2015 and found out it can not be flat towed. They (Honda engineers) changed the transmission. So had to look for a 2014. Well, found the last one in Oregon. Of course, we didn't get a good deal because of our requirement of flat tow, and that was the last one. Maybe with...
