  1. Where to have an auto inspection, dealership or auto repair

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I bought a CR-V from Carvana. I did a vehicle inspection at a Monro Auto Repair store. They said there was a transmission leak but they didn't have the parts to repair on the same day. They put tires back onto the vehicle and let me drive away without charging a fee. I haven't been to a Honda...

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Good Afternoon all, Does anyone have any experience with an aftermarket trailer hitch on a touring C RV? I know honda sells a relocation kit for the hands free kick sensor for the Honda hitch but will it work with other aftermarket hitches? I want to buy the etrailer hitch.
  3. Free oil changes for OD?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Last summer before "the fix" was released, I remember reading on here of several people getting free oil changes from Honda if they went in to complain that their oil level was too high. Is Honda still paying for oil changes for problem vehicles, or are they just telling everyone "tough luck"...

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    New to the site. Great information. Have a 2005 CR-V SE with code P0341. Reading articles points to stretched timing chain (but will have this confirmed). And then looking to buy a service shop manual. Came across a site advertising free manuals. Very cautiously went to the site, and found what...

  9. 3rd gen cargo shelf FREE to a good home

    Trading Post
    I no longer have my 2009 CRV, and I just found my barely-ever-used grey cargo shelf in the rafters of my garage! Pretty sure it will fit any 3rd gen (2007-2011) CRV. Hopefully someone can use it. Due to size, I'm assuming shipping is not cost effective, so local pickup might be best, unless...
  10. hands free bluetooth speakerphone and magnetic car holder

    Mobile Electronics
    I have a 2007 CRV. I'm looking to make hands free calls in the car and looking for a car holder for my cellphone (samsung S9). I'm looking at cd mount magnetic holders. But I'm not sure if this will block items on my radio. And I'm also not sure if the magnets will be able to hold the phone...

  13. 2007 UK CR-V Blutooth/Hands Free module repair

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi My wife has a 2007 ES CR-V. Recently the blutooth stopped working and our local garage quoted over £1000 to fix it. We then started getting occasional flat batteries. Apparently this is a common fault caused by dry solder joints in the blutooth/Hands Free module and it is possible to repair...
  14. 2014 CR-V EX-L, no Nav, Bluetooth / HandsFreeLink / HFL not working at all

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    2014 EX-L AWD without Nav. Bluetooth used to work. Now it doesn't. Video link should show the problem. Previously paired phones don't connected. "Phone" buttons on the steering wheel don't do anything. This isn't a phone pairing problem. This happened shortly after charging a pair of cheap...
  15. Tailgate Hands Free Quits Working After Hitch Installation

    I just had a trailer hitch put on my 2017 CRV and the handsfree control quit working. Up until now the kick to open has been working fine. I had a long discussion with my Honda Service department. The sensor is a radar sensor (not optical) located under the rear bumper cover. You can't see...
  16. "Free" Dealer Warranties: Are they worth it?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I think this has been mentioned somewhere in another thread (but I'm unable to find it). My dealer offered the "free engine and drive train for life" coverage, along with free oil changes and inspections for life. I assumed there would be lots of catch-22 issues that would arise and checked on...

    Hello Everyone. I’d like to ask if it’s worth the money to upgrade 2012 Honda CRV navigation map? (it was offered for $99 on sale) And is it going to upgrade navigation software too, besides map? And is there a way to do it for free? Also can “used” map update yellow USB drive from ebay to be...
  19. Hands Free Tailgate Relocation and Trailer Hitch

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just installed the Draw-Tite Class III hitch on my CRV. I am very impressed with the quality. I read that the hands free tailgate should still work, but I am guessing it is only on the Class II. I need to install the relocation kit for the hands free sensor. Have any of you done this? Any...

    Maintenance and Service
    Does my wife's 2015 take the 0w20 synthetic blend or fully synthetic? We have been taking advantage of the free dealership oil changes, and I attempted to purchase a couple quarts from the dealership, and I was given conflicting information on which one the car takes. The parts counter guy...
