    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    After about 14 months we traded in our CRV. We could not go thru another winter without heat and changing the oil ever 500 miles. It was a great SUV if the issues were not present. Honda really let us down. Oh well. On to a 2018 Audi Q3 and could not be happier at this time. Smaller and gas...
  2. 2017 CRV - Can't keep Android Auto connected. Takes the fun out of driving.

    Problems & Issues
    It worked for several months, now I can't get AA to remain connected at all. I think I have been through everything. I just tried the recommended high quality Belikin 3.1 USB cord, it didn't make any difference. This is so frustrating. One of the main reasons we went with the Honda over the...
  3. Something fun: Your favorite CR-V Journey

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    What's your favorite CRV journey so far? My third kid is too young for a road trip (intentional anyway) and I've only owned it for a couple of months but... My favorite so far was a long morning drive to the airport. Dark outside, coffee in hand and a trip awaiting my wife and me. Acceleration...
  4. What's this fun to drive nonsense? CX-5, not CR-V

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Just have to ask this of anyone that can actually give me a response that is understandable to a none enthusiast. Why do they say that the Mazda CX-5 is engaging and fun to drive over the CRV? What do they mean by fun? My CRV is a driving pleasure. I don't speed around curves, nor put the...
  5. A really fun experiment with the adaptive cruise control if you are brave

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Forgive me if you already know about this but I found this very interesting and fun. I gave a friend a ride in my new Touring on Saturday. He is a technically savvy guy and we were discussing the adaptive cruise control. I gave him a demonstration. We were in a 35 MPH speed zone approaching a...
  6. Green Key light fun (copy/pasted the post below from the Maintenance section)

    Problems & Issues
    Hello to the group, I'm not a CR-V owner but my 73yo landlady is and she loves it. Recently she began experiencing issues with the car just not starting. Battery tested totally ok and we could jump it to get it started. Now it won't start at all although sounds like it wants to turn over. There...
  7. Tomorrows fun project.

    Maintenance and Service
    Purchased a clean 2014 EX-l with 51k on it about 3 weeks ago with excellent service records. All oil changes and other required maintenance done at Honda dealerships. It has a tow hitch installed so i plan on doing a drain and fill of the ATF and changing the rear diff fluid as the last record...
  8. 1996 CRV suspension fun...

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    So, we have been getting together different parts to repair the suspension on our 1996 CRV (JDM) it had been making a lot of clunking noise in the front end, which we identified as the upper a-arm bushings, lower strut bushings and stabiliser arm bushings... So on a trip to South Africa we had...
  9. Let's have some more fun with the '11 TPMS

    Problems & Issues
    The drama continues. We've had a zillion threads about the horrible Honda TPMS system. My problems continue. I own two sets of rims: 1) the stock alloy rims with my summer tires and the stock Honda tire pressure sensors 2) aftermarket steel rims...

    Some pics taken a few years ago
  11. Dipped tailgate emblems (more plasti-dip fun)

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I thought this merited a new thread with progressive pics and a YouTube DIY video (not mine). Pretty straight forward job. The youtube video covers all the basics better than I can. It turned out pretty well considering it was my first emblem dip attempt. I nicked one of the letters while...
  12. Its been fun

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Well guys I really liked my CRV, but it just wasn't for me. Traded it in on a new Pilot EXL/NAV and I love it.
  13. Lifted turbocharged 5spd 4wd 99 crv having fun in the mud

    Off The Beaten Path The commentating is hilarious.. The crv means business though... More to come! Listen for the rev launch in the mud from 5,000 rpm!
  14. TPMS and Traction Control - Another Fun Fact

    Dear Honda:
    Guess what happens when you put on your snow tires if you don't buy 4 more sensors to put in the snow tires that you used on your last car? TPMS fail light comes on. Now your traction control is automatically on and you cannot turn it off. Guess what the manual tells you to do to get moving in...
  15. New 2009 CR-V AWD owner...what fun can I have with this thing? mods?

    Performance Modifications
    So just picked up a 09 CR-V 2.4 iVTEC (K24Z1 or Z4, not sure but same specs) AWD... want to have some fun with this, not nothing crazy but I know this motor has more potential! I read somewhere that 06-09 civic si SRI's will fit (found pics of a guy who put DC Sports on but that one was for 2.0...
  16. Narrower tires for better fuel (and fun)?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I'm thinking of getting a narrow set of tires for my 04 that will hopefully be: 1. Cheaper 2. better on fuel economy 3. add some edge to my soul crushing daily commute 4. I understand I'll need to get new set of rims. These will be my non-winter set. Any idea on what the narrowest the V will...
  17. 2009 CR-V intake- let the fun begin!

    Performance Modifications
    I ordered a DC sports 06-09 Civic SI short ram intake and it finally came in today. 06-09 Civic SI intakes purportedly fit the 07+ CR-Vs... I read that the MAF sensor outputs might be very narrow and that an intake might throw a CEL, but I thought I'd give it a try since the intake was...
  18. Fun adding to my CR-V

    Image & Video Gallery
    Been fun adding to my CR-V so far. I don't want to go overboard and I want it to be tasteful. Suggestions are always welcome, of course. So far, I added the roof rack, body side molding, sunroof wind deflector, hood wind deflector, tailgate spoiler, exhaust finisher, and nudge bar. The Honda...
  19. Remote Key Fun & Games :mad:

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Recently I found my '08 CR-V remote key loose in it's housing. The plastic case was broken and cracked. I called my local Canadian Honda Dealer and was given the shock of my like. To get a new key it will cost as follows: $90.00 for new key housing, $120.00 for new remote PCB, $25.00 for cutting...

    Off The Beaten Path
    At last I took my V of the road and onto the beach.The V is very capable on the sand,didnt even take some air out of the tyres. Drove about 5Km on the beach when I got stuck in realy soft sand.My friend who drove a Rav got worried but I yelled not to worry,im in a V.Reversed out perfectly, didnt...
