  1. 2018 CR-V headlight bulb switch to it a good idea?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hello, new to this club. I've always owned Hondas and just got a 2018 CR-V. I hate how the daytime LED light doesnt match the low beam light or high beam light. My question is, has anyone changed to LED ? And how should I go about doing it?

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, 2012 CRV 165k I just bought, I am the second owner. Yes sorry another vibration thread. I think mine is different. Please help if you can. I have a rumble/vibration while in drive at low speed, it is most noticeable while stopped with foot on brake. I think the rumble is from my...
  3. 2006 CR-V Oil turned to Sludge and VVT Solenoid replaced- No Idea Why?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 Honda CR-V with 101,000 miles on it. I had recently purchased it from a dealer who got it from out of state (auction I assume). On the dealer's repair sheet prior to purchasing it states the dealer had replaced the timing chain. At about 99,000 miles I changed the oil and put in...
  4. Admit it, you have no idea what your spare pressure is... a solution

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Admit it... few of us ever think to check the pressure in our spare tires. This is doubly bad because with our chintzy "doughnut" spares running at 60 PSI, they lose pressure faster than the regular wheels. And, even if you DO have the motivation to check the spare pressure on a regular basis...
  5. Who's idea was it to fix the positions of the roof rail tower mounts?!

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a brand spanking new 2017 EX-L. I have a ton of great Yakima accessories and plunked down heavy change on new mounts and towers. Bolted them into the Honda-made holes in the roof rails easily enough buuuuut.... The positions are fixed - meaning I can't move the rails forward or back...
  6. Smart Handles on Rear Idea

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
  7. Dear Honda: CRV is a great SUV; here's an idea for centre display

    Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda, Be the first in the consumer-grade SUV and car industry to create a view for the 7" display on my 2015 CRV Touring that would be geared for auto buffs and techno geeks (but sufficiently hidden to not distract usual users). I suggest a dense, information-laden dashboard. What...
  8. 2015 CRV EX with heated cloth seat - good idea to installed aftermarket covers?

    I have heated cloth seats. After a few months now I am afraid I should have opted for leather. We're a very active family and there will be chances for water/liquid spillage, dirt and other stuff. So now.....good idea to buy aftermarket seat covers? Will that reduce the heating effectiveness. I...
  9. Any idea best price for Installing back up sensor with attachment for 2015 CR-V EX?

    Lowest price I got from local NJ Honda dealer was $710 plus tax. Lowest I've seen online for the part with attachment is $349. Am I going to get any better? don't know that I would trust a regular repair shop besides Honda service dept with this.
  10. Any idea what caused this electrical issue?? Failing gauges

    Maintenance and Service
    I have an '05 CRV, 99,000 miles. On my ride home last night, my tachometer, rpm and gas gauges all dropped to the low end of their scale, and my speedometer froze at 75 mph. Stopped for gas, turned car off and back on - still no working gauges. I was thinking 'blown fuse'. This morning I got...
  11. Trunk Cooler Idea...

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    I have an 05 V and was thinking about the idea of using the trunk space under the picnic table to put ice/drinks in. the only problem is there is no drain. Has anyone done this? would it be possible to install a drain?
  12. 3 prior owners automatically bad idea?

    Shopping & Test Driving I am definitely not a car person but in the market for a 2007 or 2008 exl. Should I be...
  13. Any idea on 2012 CR-V EX price, please

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I want to buy a 2012 Honda CR-V EX 2WD this month and got a quote from a dealer in Los Angeles area for $22850 before tax. Is this a good deal or can get any lower? It will be appreciated if some one can give me any input. Thanks.
  14. great idea

    Off The Beaten Path
    Alright up here in the mountains, trail riding, and off-roading in general are very common. However, there are few places to do so. Resulting in a high number of tickets and, in some cases arrests. I think North Carolina should follow California and a few other states and build State...
  15. Put ski in the cabin (center position of the rear seat), is it a good idea?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Hi there, I have a 3rd gen V (2011) which I like a lot. Recently we are planning a ski trip (2 adults and 2 kids - both 6 years old) but it seems that the roof rack and ski attachment that I ordered online won't get here in time for the ski trip. I found that the ski won't fit with the rear...
  16. Spray on bed-liner in the spare tire well - bad idea?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Was thinking of using some spray on bed liner (for truck beds) in my spare wheel well to prevent rust and (hopefully) help deaden some sound. Anyone have experience with this?
  17. Lease then buy, good idea?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    The wife and I are planning on getting a newer CRV. We currently have an 01 CRV that we have had for 5 years that currently has 175k miles on it. We don't really want too high of a monthly payment so we were thinking of leasing an '10 for the 3 years and then purchase it at the end of the lease...
  18. Is this a bad idea

    Maintenance and Service
    okay Im new to the CRV and right now im looking at a 2001 CRV lx with 120000 miles for $5,150. He has never replaced the timing belt, or adjusted the valves. Should I let this pass or do you think I will be okay. If I do buy it I plan on changing the belt and adjusting the valves. Also one other...
  19. Again rough idle problem. Many things tested but still no idea.

    Maintenance and Service
    I have my 97 CRV for 2 to 3 years already. Since last year the idle starting to be quite rough while turnning on the A/C. But working fine without A/C. When the A/C pump engaged, rpm drops quite significantly and very rough. I have testing the IAC valve. -- I took it out, then applied...
  20. Dad's Mar-Hyde Idea...

    never heard of it before but I went to my dad for a solution of fixing all the scratches, dings, etc on the front bumper of the Cr-v. He stated that he has some flexible black mar-hyde which is almost like spray-on rubber bedliner. I said, I do not want a bed-liner finish, he said "I know" and...
