    Diesel CR-V
    Hi, I have just purchased a 2006 CRV 2.2 diesel Executive from a pal that has covered 160,000 miles... The car runs very well but does appear to use quite a fair bit of oil, although it doesn't smoke at all, pulls very well and the engine holds the car back on a decent so the rings should be...
  4. Long time Honda, first time CRV

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hey guys, posting up here to start an intro thread. I'm looking to get into a 1.5 gen CRV. I've been a parts guy at a Honda dealership for the past 6 years or so, and have driven a few TLs and older Civics, but my heart has mainly been with the Toyota 4runner. I've had two 3rd gens and a 4th...

  6. How Long Did Your Key Fob Battery Last?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    For those of you who don't change them regularly, how long did the CR1616 battery last with daily use, before it died? I've always replaced mine every two years. So far, never had a key fob battery die on my 2007 CR-V. But I'm wondering if two years is too often?

    I own a 2018 a Touring with 3,600 miles. Wanted to share the stats of our trip. Just completed a 850 mile road trip over Thanksgiving. Checked the oil level just before leaving and it was a nats hair over the orange plastic on the dipstick. It did not smell of gas. Checked after the trip...
  9. Three Beeps When Waiting too Long to Start?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I've got a 2018. If I get in the car and wait a few minutes (checking my phone, whatever) and try to start the car I get three quick beeps. Is that normal, or is it part of my alarm? It's more annoying than anything. Any idea how to turn it off?

    Hi all, first post as this is the first work i've done on this car that i got 2 years ago. 2013. Decided to go at the brakes myself, watched a ton of videos, looked a lot at this forum, then gave it a go. The car didn't explode(my base requirement for all DIY efforts), but in reviewing my...
  12. Long reach floor jack

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    The center jack point seems pretty far back to get my craftsman professional floor jack in the V to jack the front tires off the ground. Of course once that’s accomplished I’ll use jack stands. What kind of jack do you guys use. Thanks.

    Good evening fellow CR-V lovers. I purchased my 2018 CR-V in January of this year. Now sitting at 7700K miles. I really love the vehicle, its very nice. I traded in a 2016 Honda Civic EXL, so I was pretty much use to everything. But I will get straight to the point... after reading about...
  15. SiriusXM screen truncates long names in Artist and Song Title fields

    Mobile Electronics
    I have a 2018 Honda CR-V EX-L with the Display Audio screen. The SiriusXM screen truncates long names in the Artist and Song Name fields. Can this be adjusted? There's some blank space below the Artist/Song name line that could be used to put each of these fields on their own line, which...
  16. How long is too long to warm up?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Had the CR-V for almost two week and this morning was the coldest day. 30f when I left for work. It took a good 5-6 miles to finally warm up, this after remote starting the car for 10 minutes. I think its absurd how long it took. The grill vent / louver thing was open. At what temp is this...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    From Los Angeles to Atlanta with some (planned) detours along the way. The CRV basically was fine -- no problems over the mountains, ACC worked great. The last time I drove this far was in my Dad's 2006 Acura TL and the CRV wasn't as comfy but was comfortable enough. However: The head unit...

    Today was the day my 2015 CRV battery died. It has just under 29,000 miles and is one month short of being off original warranty.
