    It's been just shy of 6,000 miles and 10 months since my last oil change, and all of the car's oil changes have been done at the Honda dealership from which I bought the car new. Today, during an hour and a half, about 60-mile trip, I checked the remaining oil life on the MID, and it said 50...

    Hello, I have a 2011 CRV that is gently driven with a mix of Highway and around town. Curious if anybody can give me a rough idea of how long I might expect the rear brakes and rotors to last? Thanks for your input. Steve

    I'm getting ready to do a drain/fill on my 2012. In the process, I found an unopened quart of DW1 from when I serviced my prior 2001 years ago. That quart, left on the shelf in the garage, is probably 5 to 6 years old. Is it ok to use?
  4. Greetings & Introductions
    Hi, Y'All, Have always enjoyed my 2003 CRV and I am considering getting it re sprayed. I share it with my three black Labradors and whilst they never enter or get into the front seats in my absence, the rear end of the vehicle needs some long neglected care. I am considering travelling with...

    So I have synthetic oil in my CRV from the dealer. I get free oil changed every 5000 miles. Right now I put on 4000 miles and it still says oil life 70% left. What’s the actual deal with this

    As heading says, oil life indicator was 80% when I bought the car new. Less then 100 miles. Dealer had no answer. Anyone else experience this? 2018 EXL.

    I noticed when I picked up the vehicle that it had just "-----" by the oil life, so I just figured it needed a few miles of driving to calculate out the remaining miles or percentage. After 2+ weeks it is still showing dashes! Is this normal? If so how many miles do you need to drive before it...

    I went down from 100% to 90% after 700 miles, seems about right. Overall mileage 81K.

    After use, should your CRV Turbo be allowed to run for a couple of minutes before turning it off. I saw a vehicle show where it was suggested that turbo life can be extended by leaving the vehicle run for a couple of minutes before turning it off to allow the engine oil to cool the turbo. I am...

    I recently purchased a 2016 EX w/o Nav and while I love the car, the head unit was extremely underwhelming. I read through various articles about how to get my iPhone 6S working with Sygic Nav and the proprietary Honda cable but to be perfectly honest, that setup didn't sound like much of an...

    Even though my maintenance minder showed 40% oil life, the oil looked very dirty. I was around 5,000 miles. I had the dealer do a full synthetic oil change. I checked the oil a few days later and it was much cleaner but I was expecting it to be really clean. It was already a little dirty...

    Since I have to replace some tail lights, I'm really considering LED's. This would cut down on removing the tail light assembly. How long do LED lights last? Are they worth double the cost of standard lights? I find lights bought at auto part stores, don't seem to last as long as lights that...

    Greetings! I was very surprised when, at 6 months old, my vehicle was down to 10% oil life. My daughter's 2009 Fit, on the other hand, didn't require its first oil change for at least a year, I'm thinking longer (granted, she doesn't drive as much as I do). Wondering if Honda might have...

    I'm about to replace the A/C compressor clutch on my daughter's 2007 CR-V LX and would like to hear from anyone who opted for an aftermarket clutch/coil versus replacing the compressor. How long did the clutch and coil last and what did you pay for it? Thanks

    So the two tires I have seen on 2017 CR-V's on dealer lots are: Bridgestone: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Bridgestone&tireModel=Ecopia+H%2FL+422+Plus&partnum=36HR8HL422PL Hankook...

    Should I do Maintenance sub items, in this case 1-rotate tires, only when do the main items? Or I can do sub items without main items. Thanks

    The oil life % of our EXL AWD is getting a little troubling. When we bought it on 2/17/2017 the car had 8 miles on the odometer and 100%. Then on 3/26 at 540 miles it was 90%. Now with 915 miles it is showing 80%. At the rate it is going it will request an oil change before reaching 5,000...

    When i had 450 ml oil life was just 80% left. I went to dealer and they added oil (1qt) and reset maintenance minder. Now I have 850 ml and oil life just dropped 10% (90 left). Is it normal? I drive in moderate traffic. Any suggestions?

    hello people; 13V. I have my oil changed locally and in there (via e-mail) receipt it contains a video of my V. You see my V and the operator talking about my brakes, coolant level, air filter and then he goes to my bat. peels back the red cover over the pos. terminal and says it needs a bat...
