  2. Optional heavy duty mats

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    Our black with blue design accessory floor mats have weak sides. Under consistent pressure the sides droop. Additionally, my wife has caught her shoes in the upper sides. I believe this caused by the weak sides. The mat set (front and second row) cost approximately the same as Weathertech...

  7. 2001 heavy oil leak after oil change

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    Hey guys, I've just finished doing an oil change and a big problem arose. When I finished changing the oil and filter, I started up my vehicle and most of the oil leaked out onto the ground. At first, I thought this would have been an issue with the oil filter as the massive flow of leaking oil...

    First time poster, thus please forgive me if this has been discussed. The other day while driving in a heavy downpour, the CRV (2001 4wd) began to studder...I could feel it strongly in the floor and in the seat of my pants. If I let off on the throttle it seemed to diminish. Almost like...
  11. Shaky Acceleration lessens with heavy load? 1997 AWD

    Problems & Issues
    Just like the title says. When I accelerate through second gear the whole vehicle shakes, somewhat violently if I accelerate hard. The shaking actually lessens with heavier loads in the car. I also hear a scraping sound when hitting hard bumps or when making a sharp turn at a high speed. The...

    Problems & Issues
    Every two years I get a new CR-V for our business, and pass along "last year's" CR-V to my wife (we work together). My new 2012 steers like a dream. The 2010, that I drove for 30K mikes plus now steers like a truck with no power steering...VERY heavy. At dealer today...they "checked" and said...
  14. Heavy duty alternator

    Under The Hood / Performance
    I run a lot of electronics in my vehicle and my car drains the battery in about 20 minutes with the engine off. I am already getting a larger battery, but I am more interested in a higher Amp alternatort to power/charge my battery since I am always draining it. Anyone know the stock alternator...
  15. Good heavy duty shocks for the 2006 CRV

    Maintenance and Service
    I live in Mexico in a 500 year old village with rock cobblestone streets. Between these, the topes (speed bumps) and the often rough roads here I expect I should change my shocks no later than 35K miles. What have you all found to be very strong and durable replacement shocks for this car? I...

  20. Heavy Duty Floor Mats and Cargo Liner Sets?

    Interior
    I'm having a little trouble tracking down a good quality matching set of all weather floor mats and a cargo liner. I need something that can deal with lots of snow and rain. I like the rubber like material ones that are molded to the specific vehicle's shape, but I'm having trouble finding...
