    We only have one remote-control key for our 2013 EX. How difficult/costly is it to get another?

    Streets of San Diego are rated poor 3rd world at best. CR-V rides like an unsprung buckboard. Any idea how to soften the ride short of trading for a Buick which my friend the Cady/Buick dealer recommends. Is the Acura any better? Does anyone make a strut that will improve the ride? Any...

    Hi Just bought CR-V 2018 Touring and I decided to check oil. And it is honestly quite hard to put oil stick back. I had to rotate it, move up and down until it fits back. I never had that issue on 2014 Civic or 2014 Accord. Does anybody else have this problem? Vlad

    I love my '17 CR-V, but I'm getting aggrevated at how much grief the service dept. gives me when I request S/W updates. I have an early-production one, so if there's a bug, I have it. You'd think that a routine part of every service visit would be to plug the car into the shop computer and...

    Brought my 2017 CRV in today for its first service. I was having intermittent problems with the electronics and asked that TSB 17-064 be applied. My VIN was eligible and it was done. They also told me they did a hard reset. When I got in the car, all the WiFi names were still listed, the USB...

    I want to purchase a floor jack to raise the car for general maintenance. Have been using the tire jack for too long and want to move on from that for safety sake. However, the jack points are too narrow to accommodate both a floor jack and a jack stand at the same time. Where else in front can...

    Does anyone know if its possible to buy a hard plastic cover for the spare wheel on a '97 registered CRV. The old soft cover has perished and I'd like to replace it with a hard cover if possible? Wheel size is 205/70-R15 Thanks

    2001 CRV 328K miles turns freely first thing in the morning but acts like no fire or no fuel. Eventually will start and start easily every time during the day without hesitation. Occasionally in traffic when coming to a stop, motor stumbles and ether almost dies or dies. No problem restarting...

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2013 crv ex which I love..I bought my dad a used 2016 crv EX-L with 12k miles. The 2016 when parking and turning the steering wheel at slow speed you need to use some muscle to turn. Also if turning from a stopped position. When going on the highway it's easy. Any ideas? no...

    I was going to do an in depth installation with a lot more photos and instructions but to tell you the truth this place is starting to drain the enthusiasm out of me. So I am just going to post a 10 picture version of the hardest parts in hope that it will help someone who tries this on their...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I've searched online for what can cause this and have come up short. I've got a 2003 with the 4A tranny and 270,000km on it. On hard acceleration to get onto the highway or going up a hill the engine stumbles until it gets to about 4500 RPM, then it's like a turbo...

    Hey CRV Gang, I bought a new Bad Boy horn (very loud and mean). Has anyone installed a replacement horn on this new 2017? Would like any tips before I replace wimpy horn with a good loud and mean sounding one. https://www.harborfreight.com/bad-boy-air-horn-94117.html

    Hi guys. Looking at getting dashcam fitted professionally. I know its easy but Id rather get it done properly with wires hidden. Just wondering if anyone else has hardwired their own dashcam and any bad effects of hiding the wiring such as loose panels etc. BTW the camera Im going to get...

    the 2 usb ports are hidden deep in the divider console. Not a thing to try and hook up while driving. I found short 12" usb extentions on ebay, that you can plug the male end in and leave it, the female will extend out of the console when you need touse a hard drive..It just makes things...

    I was test driving an EX-L today and noticed a buzz from the shifter area of the dash under hard acceleration. I was just curious if this was just an unfortunate annoyance in the specific tester I was driving, or if any of you 2017 owners have experienced something similar. Again, only under...
