  1. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I would like to remove the orange plastic tip from the dipstick in order to make it easier to read. It is nearly impossible to see the level when the oil is fresh since it almost seems to "climb" up the tip even with the dipstick held down or horizontal. Of course the new oil is transparent...
  2. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    No, this has nothing to do with a politician. This is about the infamous dipstick used in the 1.5 liter turbo charged engine that exists in most of our CRVs. Over a year ago I began posting about what has become a “Sticky:” issue that shall never be mentioned anywhere else. I know that there...
  3. Shopping & Test Driving
    I know this might seem dumb but after having an Orange Fit that I dearly love, I will never have another color car. It just makes me happy every time I look at it and I can easily find it in any size parking lot. SO...I'm seeking a Honda CR-V as I now need an AWD vehicle. Having trouble finding...

  5. Appearance
    Hi all, 2006 CR-V. Just curious if anyone knows reliable car painters in Orange County (Cerritos, Fullerton, Garden Grove triangle area, if possible!)? I bought my CR-V at 25K miles and it was already scratched up and had yellowed headlights, and a wore-down drivers seat. Not sure why that...
  6. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hi Guys, I just recently sold off my 1996 Honda Civic that I had owned for a while, and Just recently bought a used 2001 CRV SE AWD. I bought it off my Uncle and I love it already. It's also really cool that there is a forum out there dedicated to this specific year of CRV. This will be a...

    any crv lovers down here in ol' OC?
  11. Dear Honda:
    Picked up a 2007 EX-L 4wd w/ NAV 2 weeks ago. I really enjoy the vehicle. While polishing it with Zaino (great polish), I noticed what a ****ty paint job it had and could see "orange peel" beneath the finish.
  12. Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda, I can only speak for myself. Had I of test drove the CR-v at night, I never would have bought it with the color of the dash lights! I have changed them to blue & thanks for making that much harder in the 06's vs the Gen 1's... anyway I know it's minor as the rest of the CR-V rocks!
