  1. Getting more inexpensive reliable power from my ‘01

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    The worst think I can say about my ‘01 is that it takes it’s time. I’ve never gotten a ticket in Little Red because he won’t let me go that fast. That said, short of turbos, is there an easy DIY method of getting better power? I’m not looking for huge gains and I don’t want to compromise...
  2. 2009 CRV - advice for an inexpensive key replacement

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Just picked up a new to me 2009 crv, but was shocked today when the mechanic quoted over $200 for a second key copy. Seriously? I had my Toyota pickup for over 20 years and simply went to Home Depo for key copies. So I can't really comprehend this price. Totally understand CRV's have more...
  3. Poor experience with very inexpensive dome light LEDs from ebay

    Accessories
    Hey all, About a year ago I bought a very inexpensive set of LEDs bulbs from an ebay vendor to improve the interiour lighting in my 2015 CRV Touring. Just want to report that they were of poor quality. My advice is to consider the more expensive brand name ones (e.g., Sylvania) you can buy...
  4. Inexpensive (Universal) Floor Mats and Seat Covers for 2005 (2nd gen) CR-V

    Accessories
    Hi CR-V|OC, I know questions regarding accessories are often asked, but I can't find any good answers for someone on a budget, so I figured I would post. I just bought a 2005 CR-V and am looking for suggestions on inexpensive floor mats and seat covers. I don't need anything as nice as...
  5. Anyone have reccs of inexpensive place to put on bull guard and tail guard in NYC are

    Northeast Owners
    Whats up NYC! Just got into a used 2011 CRV EX, which I'm very excited about. I wanted to put on a bull guard and a tail guard. I've been trying to shop around to see the cheapest way to do it. My mechanic in Brooklyn said he'd do it for $150 ($75 for each), but I'd have to get my own guards...
  6. Is lubricating a 2000 CRV starter inexpensive?

    Maintenance and Service
    Or rather the question is, can it be done at a lower cost than replacing the starter? The last couple years I have discovered that my 2000 CRV starter motor doesn't like really cold winter weather. It works fine when temperatures are 30F and higher, no problems at all. But when it's really...
  7. Inexpensive but effective lift/leveling kit

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I tow a pop up camper with my 2011 EXL 4WD. It tows just fine, but it does cause a significant squat in the rear. To offset that, I found some coil spring spacers at Auto Zone for under $10. I figured I wouldn't lose much if it didn't work. After a little wrestling, they went in place on the...
  8. Inexpensive roof cargo carrier?

    Accessories
    I'm looking for a cheap way to transport some of our stuff on the 'naked' roof of our 2000 LX. We are going to Texas from Kansas City in late Nov. and this would just be to get us back and forth. I don't want to spend the bucks on any of the roof rack systems, Yakima etc. as I would only be...
  9. 2003 EX, inexpensive suspension choices available???

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Searched but couldn't find what i was looking for.... I just got a hand-me-down 2003 CR-V EX with 130K from my daughter. (she just bought a new 2011) The front suspension is leaking and I can hear that the strut bearings are shot. Honda wants $1200 to replace both front struts along with the...
  10. Inexpensive OBDII adapters for your laptop

    Problems & Issues
    This came up in another thread and I thought I'd post a new one to make it easier to find and stop sidetracking that other thread. There are many vendors for OBDII interface cables for your laptop (windows and linux only as I understand). Here are two that I know of with experience...
