  1. Do you notice any delay in the unlocking of the door when you grab the handle?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    When using the keyless access do you notice any delay when unlocking the door :: does it immediately unlock as you grab the handle or is there some delay? Sometimes I notice that when I quickly pull on the handle it doesn’t unlock right away, what could be wrong?
  2. NHTSA CRV recall notice

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Just received an email from NHTSA .... I got all excited and thought finally a fix for gas in oil problem.... NO, it's a safety recall for a steering problem
  3. can I get rid of the NOTICE that comes up on the display every time I start the car?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi there, I'm loving my new CR-V. My old CR-V (that I've given to my son) was a 2007, and things have come a long way in the years between 2007 and 2018. Feels a bit to me like I'm sitting at the controls of the Starship Enterprise—so many automatic, automated features. My favourite (given...
  4. Anybody else notice the mirror switch is upside down?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Has anybody else noticed that the picture on the mirror switch is upside down? It looks like a passenger mirror, until you realize the mount is supposed to be on the bottom, not the top of the mirror.
  5. Anyone notice this using GPS map

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Three week old CRV touring, and today I noticed my vehicle icon on my map was a block over from my actual route. After going to my intended location for a while. I started my vehicle again, and noticed my vehicle icon pointing into the wrong direction that I was going and once again for a...
  6. Anyone else notice this?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    It seems our 2017 Touring's door ground clearance is lower than the 2008 we had. Curbs that previously were never an issue will now hit the door if opened. My wife also got the passenger door stuck in some grass when opened and I had to lift it to clear - never had this happen before. Has...
  7. Annoying notice displayed at engine start

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Now that I have read that annoying legal disclaimer about 50 times which is displayed every time I start the CRV, is there anyway of hiding it? It keeps me from setting the heater/AC, changing the radio etc until it is done. Thanks.
  8. Airbag Recall Notice arrived Monday

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Got my recall notice for our 08V on Monday. Honda states that it will be early summer before they have parts in my area to perform the swap and a second letter will be following to tell me when to schedule it in. Has anyone parked their ride due to this issue and demanded a loaner car from...
  9. Will I notice a 1“ wheel upsize?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I have a 2014 lx with 16" wheels. Is there any functional/performance difference if I go up to 17" wheels? My handling/ride feels a little "soft" but I don't know if that is attributable to my wheels.
  10. Anyone with a lowered 1st gen notice any MPG gains? Or just lowering in general?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Im looking at doing my suspension up, and a skunk coilover for 250$ seems reasonable. I would probably drop it 2 inches maybe 3. If I could refute the 250$ in mpg saving I will jump on it. I drive highway a good amount and I know that is where it comes into play mostly. Gas being around 3.79...
  11. 2005 Timing Belt notice from Dealer

    Maintenance and Service
    Today I got a email from my dealer titled "Timing Belt Service Reminder". The body of the email was pretty generic and did not address my specific model, a 2005 CR-V with 69,000mi. It stated : "Our records indicate that your Honda Civic or CR-V has reached or exceeded Honda’s recommended...
  12. Check Fuel Cap Notice

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2009 CR-V EX, with less than 6,000 miles on it. About a week after filing up, I get a message, upon start-up, on the odometer screen stating to "Check Fuel Cap." As directed by the owner's manual, I turn the car off, unscrew the fuel cap, re-screw it and have it click several times...
  13. Anyone notice the use of black tape on pillars?

    Has anyone noticed the use of black tape on the exterior pillars for the 2008 CRV? I was tempted to peel back a section of tape to see what is underneath. Does anyone know what kind of finish is underneath the tape? Why would Honda use such a cheap material?
