  1. CRV up hill snow.

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I got into some deep snow over the weekend in my 2017 EX AWD. The CRV gave everything it had on the last hill at the end of the video. Edit: The Tires are All Season BFGoodrich - Advantage TA Sport LT
  2. Hill Assist while driving

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi All, Just picked up a 2018 CRV Touring saturday. The only thing that i can't figure out is when you are driving at say 45 MPH, and start down a hill on the highway, to keep your speed at around 45, in my Pilot and Civic, I just tap the brake pedal and it holds that speed after releasing the...
  3. Honda Sensing failure climbing a steep hill

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hi guys. My first post here. '18 CRV EX-L owner with 500 miles on it. I was climbing a steep hill in San Francisco following the car in front of me in stop and go traffic. I engaged the ACC. The car followed for 4-5 seconds then I got failure messages for ACC,LKAS,TPMS,RDMS, CMBS, etc. The car...
  4. Hill Descent

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    While it's not there yet, the 2017-later CR-V's computer-controlled, electrically pumped, hydraulic clutch engaged rear wheel drive is getting closer to the Subaru Forester's capability (we're cross-shopping). It's now proactive rather than dependent on wheel spin to power two hydraulic pumps...
  5. CVT hill holder seems to stick. 2015 2wd

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I've noticed since it was new that the hill holder would stick and make the steering feel heavy like the brakes were on when turning into or out a hill from a stop. Now at 45,000 miles the front pads are nearly gone. My last Crv went to 120,000 miles
  6. 2017 Hesitation when starting engine on hill

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I have a 2017 LX AWD. I've that the engine takes much longer than usual when cranking to start when parked on a steep incline, facing uphill. The fuel tank is full. I haven't tested if the same issue occurs when facing downhill. So far this has only been in my driveway, so I can roll out to...
  7. burning smell when downshift/going up hill.

    Problems & Issues
    Hey guys driving home today I noticed a strong burning smell when the car downshifted going uphill. At first I thought it was another car but sure enough every time I started going uphill, the car would downshift to a lower gear and I'd get a strong burning smell. It almost smelled like...
  8. Anyone in Spring Hill area?

    Southeast, Mid-South, & Gulf Coast Owners
    If anyone is near Spring Hill area (45 minutes NE of Tampa) and would like to have a meet for CR-V owners let me know. Not single, only want to meet with fellow CR-V owners. I would actually like to start a Honda club locally.
  9. 2011 AWD CRV makes a clank sound when backing up a hill in reverse

    Problems & Issues
    I noticed that our new CRV was making a sound when backing up an incline. It does not do it on level ground only when it hits a certain point on the incline. I had it at the dealer the other day and they said it checks out fine and nothing is wrong. Has anyone else noticed this????
  10. CRV transmission and parking on a Hill

    Maintenance and Service
    The transmission in my 2006 crv upon starting the car and switching the tranny in to reverse before going into drive works fine on flat ground. IF I am parked on a hill the reverse kicks loudly. The transmission however when driving switches fine. I am thinking it might be something else. the...

    Took my '99 for a long run this weekend. the Car is new to me with only 28K miles on it. Typical Old Lady to church story. When I got it I change the trani fluid as recommended. Anyway, car is in New Like condition. Driving the interstate this weekend with the Cruise controll on the car...
  12. Noob from Richmond Hill

    Eastern & Central Canada Owners
    Greetings CRVOC members - I don't currently own a CR-V, but I plan to purchase a pre-owned one in the next month or so. I used to own a 2002 CR-V EX - 5 spd manual. I had to wait 8 weeks for it because I wanted a manual transmission. Anyway, I handed it over to the wife when my first child was...
  13. New Owner from Cherry Hill, NJ

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello Folks, After 4 years of owning an Acrua TL, I traded in my old car on a 2007 CR-V EX-L. I've found that being a home owner, the TL really wasn't so practical when it came to the everyday things that I need a car for, and well, buying premium gas gets old fast when you commute 70 miles to...
