  1. Why doesn't the 2018 CR-V have the newer updated infotainment system like the Accord?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I feel like Honda should've updated the infotainment system this year to match the new one on the Accord and Odyssey. The one on the CRV and Civic looks super outdated compared to the Accord and Odyssey. Do you think that Honda will update the infotainment system for 2019, or wait until they...
  2. Are the newer CRV's made entirely in the U.S?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I was wondering where the CRV's are made. Somewhere I read that they're mostly made in the U.S. for the U.S. market. What years are made here if that's the case? Thanks :)
  3. 2013, 2014, or newer?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I live in NYC, own a house but it's on-street parking, and haven't owned a car since 1998 (had to fill in a year for my profile, so picked a random year). Mid 40s, married, and have a six-month old kid. I've ruled out an Accord because I'm tall and figure getting the kid in and out of the...
  4. Replace 2014 CR-V LX radio with a newer CR-V HD Radio?

    Mobile Electronics
    I have a 2014 CR-V LX with the stock radio. I'd like to add an HD Radio if possible. With the level of integration of the radio into the car...steering wheel controls, display, etc...I'm wondering if there's a way to pull an HD Radio-equipped tuner from a 2015, 2016 or 2017 model CR-V and...
  5. Has anyone traded in their 2016 Honda CRV for the newer 2017 Honda CRV Gen 5

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I presently own a 2016 Honda CRV EX. I currently have 3200 miles, and will have paid off in 2 mos. It is in mint condition. Would I take a big loss if I traded it in for the 2017 model. I really like the 2017 crv over 2016.
  6. IPHONE ios 10 and newer is not recognized by radio

  7. Increasing cargo storage space in newer model CRVs?

    Hello - we have a 2007 CR-V, and its most important feature has been the hard, foldable shelf in the cargo area -- which literally allows us to double the capacity of our storage (i.e. luggage or nursery plants below, and groceries above shelf every weekend, etc.) We were very disappointed to...
  8. Cruise control caution for 15 and newer CRV

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Those of us who have been driving for decades know the cautions given about driving with cruise control in the rain. Most of us also sometimes use the cruise control on rainy or wet roads and have had few problems. Prior to now, as I drove 40,000+ miles per year for 30+ years, I ran into a...

  10. Questions about trading newer Fit for an older CR-V.

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hello all, I have owned my 2009 Honda Fit with 66k miles for 9 months now, and it's just not the car for me for a number of reasons. I went down to a dealership today, and they are willing to do a clean trade for a 2005 CR-V with 138k miles. They are asking $9,975 for the CR-V, which is a bit...
  11. Replacing 2006 Stereo with newer stock double din Honda deck

    Mobile Electronics
    Greetings, There are other posts on this but they seem to be quite old I'm hoping to get some updated information. I have a 2006 CRV with the 6 disk changer. I would like to use my iPhone but it would seem that the changer uses the only available connection on the back of the unit. I would like...
  12. 99 v rear ended by newer mb c230 at 20mph

    Greetings & Introductions
    Car totaled 2000 miles after fresh motor and trans. Mb rear ended the v and went under it sending it air borne and into the car in front. Got the hood opened but it was too dark for a pic. I'm thinking of doing the "ghetto yank" on the radiator core support or just weld on a new one. I know how...

  14. Anyone install roof rails on their 2012 or newer CR-V?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I bought some after market roof rails to install on my 2012 CR-V, and I am now discovering that its not so easy. Apparently you have to modify the current roof pieces to be able to fit the roof rails. Has anyone already done this?? Are there any videos about installation out there?? Any help...
  15. Looking for a newer replacement to my 1997

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi, My 1997 CRV has 181,000 miles on it. It has rust building up on the underside which is showing on the wheels, even though I replaced them in 2008 (stupid decision it seems). I want to get a new one, but I cant afford to pay 25,000 for a new one. So, I was looking at used options. I also...
  16. Gen. 2 CR-V, newer KYB front struts still making horrible clunking noises?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi, I just bought a used '02 Gen. 2 CR-V EX not too long ago, from a person whom I trust, and they also provided receipts for all work done... and the most recent service was this past August and included installation of new KYB front struts (and new rear shocks too). But the front is...
  17. Wanting to upgrade to newer model, which year is better?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi folks this is my first posting to this site. I currently own a '87 Honda Civic Wagon with RT 4WD (the original CRV). I have also owned a '85 Civic Wagon (non RT 4WD) so I am familiar with this great vehicle. My '87 is starting to get long in the tooth and I'd like to upgrade to a newer...

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I'm looking to buy a used CR-V for my commute to work. It is about 35 miles each way through hilly country roads. I live in Western, New York so being able to handle excellent in snow is important. I'm looking to spend less than $15,000 and reliability is very important. I am a teacher and...
  19. could (newer) cr-v's be considered 'rugged'?

    Off The Beaten Path
    i am giving serious consideration to purchasing a used 07 cr-v (am looking if anyone is selling, in texas but could travel to purchase). w/ so much emphasis on perceived 'luxury' traits in the suv market these days, my question is: are these little guys tough? i have an 04 saturn vue, & every...
