  1. How to best fix the body damage to the CRV parked in the garage?

    Problems & Issues
    A tenant in my building hit my 2018 CRV while trying to park his car. We all have assigned spots. He sent me an email and said will pay for the damage but doesn't want to go through the insurance. He wants to use his mechanic. I prefer to get my estimate and I think that should be fine. If...

  4. The Garage also does not display new uploads, plus reply box weirdness

    Community Help
    Probably related to the image attachment debacle, but when trying to upload two CR-V pics for my Garage here, neither of them are appearing. The files seemed to upload OK though, far as I can tell. Also, when replying, it strings the quote together all as one paragraph. (The word "Also" here...

    About to finish a deal on a 2017 CRV, either EX or EX-L, this will be my 3rd CRV. I'm having problems with one detail and I'm hoping someone can help. Honda says the EXL includes Homelink. I know Homelink is a standard for most garage door openers, but does this mean that the LX and EX don't...

    This applies both to 2015 and 2016 Honda CR-V Touring The steps in the manual are a little short at least in our experience.
