  1. Urgent - Problem with transmission? Not sure if I will make it

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    So I am driving my cousin 2012 CRV automatic from Chicago to Sacramento. This is end of my second day driving, well maybe do another hour or so after some food. Since this is my cousin car I dont know much about the maintenance. I check all the fluids and tires before driving and they seems...
  2. Oversizing to make up for short transmission ratio

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    2004 cr-v 4cyl MT 100,000 miles 205/70R15 Transmission ratios are too short. Cruising on the highway at 5th gear, engine rpm is well over 3000, when in fact the 2.4 for this lightweight car can cruise at 2000~2500. Getting up from red lights around town is also an issue as the first gear runs...

    Mobile Electronics
    Immediately after dusting the center screen dust in the air flocked to the screen. Is there any product or way to have the screens repel dust?
  4. Let's make it safer

    Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda, I am a long time fan of Honda Vehicles, starting out with a 1981 Honda Civic to now a 2018 Honda CR-V Ex. One major malfunction I have seen for my last CR-V and current CR-V is that the backup camera gets dirty with the only way to correct is getting out of the car, I have an idea...
  5. Why does Honda make it so hard to get S/W updates?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I love my '17 CR-V, but I'm getting aggrevated at how much grief the service dept. gives me when I request S/W updates. I have an early-production one, so if there's a bug, I have it. You'd think that a routine part of every service visit would be to plug the car into the shop computer and...
  6. What you start make sure you finish, do you:

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    We all own a Keyless and Push start system, Fail safe this is not. I just walked out the door and could have driven off with a Car. Honda needs to Yes indeed Honda Needs to shut down the car when the Key Fob goes out of range. No you say, I say then why make an Immobilizer chip for then. It is...
  7. how to make a smoother ride and lether seats

    Shopping & Test Driving
    We are purchasing a 2008 CRV EX-L and have a question about how to make the ride smoother. My wife has a Toyota Camry that she thinks rides smoother. She thinks the crv rides like a bucking bronco. Is there a way to make the ride smother? (Shocks,tires,etc) Also the leather seats are hard...
  8. Make it honk

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Is there a way to use the fob on a 2018 CR-V EX-L to make the horn honk and lights flash to find your lost car in a parking lot?
  9. Why does anyone buy a 2WD CR-V? Why does Honda even make 2WD CR-Vs?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    When browsing the 17/18 pricing threads, I notice a surprising number of people opt for the 2WD variants of the CR-V. I really don't understand why. Isn't utility one of the reasons people buy a CR-V over an Accord or Civic? Do the benefits of AWD not far exceed the costs, which are really...
  10. Sometimes you find out something that makes all the oddities make sense!

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    For years I was involved with fast cars and now later in life many of my friends from back then continued the hobby, so I am fortunate that I get a chance now and then to test drive their personal cars which is of course way above what I would spend on a car if I wanted to remain married...
  11. Make the tailgate glass open !!!

    Dear Honda:
    i am on my 2nd pilot ( 2012 current ) and 2nd crv ( 2017 current ) . why doesnt honda make the glass in the tailgate open separately from the liftgate itself like the pilots?? a run to home depot is a pain if we need something long. yes , we have a roof rack , but it would be amazing if i...
  12. Make suspension 'new' again?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I love my 1999 CR-V. It's got ~230K miles and hope to get at least another 100K out of it. One thing that makes the car feel 'old' is the suspension. It's more rattly and bumpy than when I bought it new. I'm not complaining but I was wondering if it is possible to make it feel like it...
  13. New speakers alone *do* make a big difference.

    Mobile Electronics
    Adding my two cents about audio upgrades: I recently bought a used 2014 CRV LX -- everything is stock. The sound quality was aggressively mediocre, so I knew this would be my first upgrade. I didn't want to fuss with replacing the head unit because it's integrated with the camera and steering...
  14. Does you gas choice make a difference?

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Exxon-BP, Shell, Marathon, Wal-Mart, Sheetz, Kroger. Do you get better mileage with some gas than others? Do you need fuel injection cleaners if you use name brand gas? What do you use?
  15. Honda- make a key fob that can control 2 Hondas please!

    Dear Honda:
    Love our Honda's- picking up our fifth tomorrow. Like the fob, walk away lock ,etc. But would really like to only have to carry 1 fob and control each vehicle. Maybe a selector switch on it between car 1 and 2 so both cars in the driveway don't both do same function at same time.
  16. Oil and Oil filter: best choice and to make sure warranty is maintained?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just took delivery of a new CRV, and am planning to have my local mechanic do oil changes..I supply oil and filter, he charges $10 .A dealer oil change is inconvenient, and a full synthetic oil change is $72...It costs me about $40 doing it my way. I am planning to use full synthetic..but...
  17. Touring's subwoofer does make a difference

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    When I first got the car. I was kinda disappointed by the audio system, especially when i turned up the bass. But after some tweaks on the audio setting. It sounds so much better, here are the setting that I am using. Would love to have fellow touring owners share their setting. Thanks
  18. Project gen 2.5 Port and Polish intake runners. Make your own Bolt on :0

    Performance Modifications
    Here is the test subject with measurements. Planning to port and polish since there is not a lot of aftermarket support. So I made my own. I have experience doing i4/v6 accord runners so these should be fairly easy. Only thing that is annoying is pulling off the injectors and making sure that...
  19. HELP!! Did I make a big mistake on new tires?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I have a 2013 CR-V LX 2WD that had the stock 215-70R16 tires. After 30,000 miles, they needed replacing. I was going to order that size in a General Grabber AT2 because I sometimes drive on a dirt/gravel road for 20 miles each week. When I got to Walmart, I saw a clearance on General STX, which...
