  1. Greetings & Introductions

  3. Problems & Issues
    The tailgate on my CRV doesn't lock, whether using the remote or key in the door. The tailgate doesn't make any sound when locking/unlocking the car. The tailgate window unlocks from both the key fob and the car and the rear wiper works fine so I assume not an electrical issue. There is no...

    I've started to notice a pattern to all of the questions I get PM'd regarding the CR-V. So to help avoid delays, here are the answers to the questions I get most of the time. BTW, this is my wife's car, and she picked all of the modifications. Wheels & Tires Q: What size and offset are the...

    I decided my wife's V could use a little thump on the low end, as many have pointed out, the bass from the factory audio system isn't that great. I decided to go with an 8 inch Rockford Fosgate Punch P1 sub, and a Rockford Fosgate 300-1 Punch series amp. To keep it clean, I built a custom...
  17. Appearance
    I owned the CR-V for 4 weeks and took it to a hand car wash :( And after that, I saw swirl mark everywhere on the body. Is the clearcoat gone? and is there any way to remove those swirl mark. And I will start doing my hand car wash on my own. Sigh
