  1. 2008 Honda CR-V 2.0L FWD

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I'm planning on upgrading my suspensions to Silver's Neomax Coilovers. Their default spring rates for CRV specs are 14k front 12k rear. I'm still hesitant to buy this because I think these spring rates are too high. Does anyone know the stock spring rates so I could use it as a basis?

  4. Brake Shim 2012 CRV FWD squealing against rotor, help!

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Hi, I just replaced the front pads on our 2012 CRV (FWD) and the install went as routine as a brake job can go but once I got the shims on, I saw that one of the little tabs on the shim was pressing directly on the rotor, making noise when I rotated the Rotor. I said well, this is the first...

  8. Which is faster? AWD or FWD?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Hi, I am planning on getting a 2018 CRV very soon. I really dont have that much use of AWD as the CRV is gonna be used in the city mostly. But I was wondering if it would be much quicker off the line than the FWD. Please let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks in advance.
  9. Transmission Shifting slow from fwd to rev

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    I have a 2001 Honda CRV with about 166,000 miles on it. Recently, ONLY when hot, the shifting becomes somewhat erratic and if for any reason I have to shift from FWD to REV or vis a versa, it wont do it until you rev the engine some then slams into the disired gear. As I said, this only occurs...
  10. From AWD to FWD= More power?

    1999-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1.5)
    Hello all, Just thought I’d share this interesting happening with my 2000 crv. Ever since I bought the car 2 years ago it always had seemed “bogged down”, the rpms would climb sky high when going uphill and it acted like it didn’t want to make it. I heard lots of different theories, the main...
  11. 2018 CR-V EX-L FWD accessories to get during purchase

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    In the middle of buying the 2018 CR-V EX-L FWD new. I see there are a number of accessories that can be bought and installed by the dealer or self-installed. As I negotiate the purchase, which accessories are worth to get at the purchase moment? I know accessories are a personal opinion thing...
  12. Why does anyone buy a 2WD CR-V? Why does Honda even make 2WD CR-Vs?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    When browsing the 17/18 pricing threads, I notice a surprising number of people opt for the 2WD variants of the CR-V. I really don't understand why. Isn't utility one of the reasons people buy a CR-V over an Accord or Civic? Do the benefits of AWD not far exceed the costs, which are really...

  16. Acceleration FWD vs AWD

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    There was a thread I read last week where folks were talking about the RAV4 and how the AWD was faster 0-60 then the FWD. Was about 1 sec difference. Mind you not exactly a scientific approach just regular owners testing. Never saw this mentioned/tested on the usual online publications/review...

  18. FWD or AWD

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I can't decide if I want AWD or not. I don't really know enough about the benefits or drawbacks. I would be coming from a rear wheel drive g35, which is terrible in ice. That is what led me to want an AWD vehicle next. But now I just don't know if I want it.... or just trying to waste money. Is...
  19. Difference in Curb Weight Between Fwd EX-L and Fwd Touring

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I favor the Touring aesthetically because the chrome strip downplays the over sized cladding, which for me, detracts from the clean lines of the new redesigned body. I can live without the additional gadgetry of the Touring, so would I really pay $2k for a chrome strip? At this point, I don't...
  20. AWD vs FWD?

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    TL:DR - basically is AWD worth it over FWD for winter country living? I'm interested in the EX 2012. Me and my partner are new to the world of SUVs this would be our first one.. We're trying to keep on budget and have noticed that FWDs are a lot cheaper than AWDs. My wife is convinced that we...
