  1. Remaining oil life drops 10 percent in ~ 3 hours on 2012 CR-V EX; cause for concern?

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    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...
  2. Rear Brake Life

    Maintenance and Service
    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
  3. ATF shelf life

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    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. Life in the superannuation fast lane.

    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...

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    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.

  8. Oil Life showing just "-----"

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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...
  9. 2007 CRV oil life

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    I went down from 100% to 90% after 700 miles, seems about right. Overall mileage 81K.
  10. Extending Turbo life

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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...
  11. 2017 EX-L Battery Life in Accessory Mode

    Problems & Issues
    My car wouldn't start after 20 minutes in accessory mode. The dealership told me the battery is small and that 10 minutes in accessory mode is pushing it and anything after that I'll need a jump. Is this true? Are you kidding me? Is there a solution to this limitation?
  12. Life with Mirrorlink [2016 EX, HTC M9] (tl;dr it's pretty awesome)

    Mobile Electronics
    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...
  13. Oil Life

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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...
  14. Life of LED tail lights?

    Exterior
    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...
  15. Oil Life with our vehicle...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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...
  16. Life Expectancy of Aftermarket CR-V A/C Clutch

    Maintenance and Service
    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

  18. Minder Messages is A1 and oil life 50% and almost 5K, should I rotate tires?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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
  19. Oil Life Percentage

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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...
  20. Oil life dropping down

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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?
