  1. S mode driving

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    S mode driving gives immediate response, no hesitation. Can one just drive in S mode only? What are the consequences, if any? TIA.
  2. TSB 15-046 Mode 2 fix— how much mpg loss did you actually experience?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Can those who had the Mode 2 fix applied let me know how much mpg loss you experienced after the fix? I know Honda says 0.7 mpg loss but want to know if this is accurate or if you experienced more than that?
  3. 2017 CRV display brightness stuck on daytime brightness in night mode

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So, some reason tonight the display decided to stay on daytime brightness. It's on night mode, and the display even flickers like it's changing it's brightness, but it just stays super brought. Switching it from off/day/night it just does off/day/day even though it says it's on night.. Is there...

    Problems & Issues
    Just picked up this car for a gas saver to drive to work. It had a check engine light come on but still seemed to run fine. Well driving it home today from the buyer the vsa light came on and it won’t go over about 3000 rpm’s. I’ve figured out it goes into the limp home mode. I took it to a...

When I took the car in for an oil change and a scheduled TSB fix...
  8. 2018 Sport Mode Limitations?

    Performance Modifications
    I just purchased a 2018 Honda CR-V. I wanted to know if there are any limitations to using Sport mode. For example, does it wear on the engine significantly more than just Drive? Is there a negative to using it all the time? And is there a maximum RPM / speed?

  11. 2018 EX-L Default air circulation mode

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Every time I turn off/turn on the climate control system, it comes on with the air-flow control set to recirculate interior air. This happens regardless of the setting prior to turning it off. Looked for information on this topic in the on-line owners manual but couldn't find anything. I...
  12. Battery management/save on accessory mode

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello All, I am pretty new to Honda, this is the first Honda vehicle i ever purchased. So far i am happy with the vehicle, the only concern is the user manual and the infotainment system are not very friendly. any way i am sure i will get used to it The question is more about the battery/power...
  13. A Comment on "Econo" mode, and a couple of other notes as well...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi all, I've had my V EX '17 for 11 months and have put 11k miles on it. Wonderful vehicle and my wife and I love it. I seldom use any of the "features"...LKAS, etc. especially "econo" mode as I find it really cuts the power during acceleration. But we took a drive of 100 miles each way from our...
  14. How to go from engine on to Accessory Mode directly?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    If I'm listening to audio when I get to my destination, I'd sometimes like to keep that audio playing while I park and turn off my engine. There seems to be no way to do this. I have to press the START button once to turn off the engine and then again to turn on Accessory Mode. Any way around...
  15. Climate Control: Recirculated vs Fresh air in Auto mode

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    2018 CRV with about a month's use so far. It seems that the climate control system default when in Auto mode is for the air to be recirculated rather than fresh air. (All my previous cars defaulted to fresh air except in conditions like extreme heat, high humidity, etc.) I've been watching...
  16. 2004 CRV Limp Mode

    Problems & Issues
    To make the story short,my car was dumping oil very fast and burning it off creating smoke through the hood cracks. I ended up adding a qt of 5w-30 instead of 5w-20 (Dont know if it will hurt anything,just explaining my stupid mistake) On my way home it,goes into limp mode defiently due to low...

  18. Do you use Sport Mode?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I happen to really like it, and I hear that it may help with the oil dilution problem as well. It really gives the car the kick when you want it because the RPMs are always higher. The downside of course is the MPG hit which I am obsessing over since i got my 2018 CRV EX. I love telling...
  19. 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?
