  1. New CR-V owner, 2005 with rattle in front

    Greetings & Introductions
    Just became a new(to me) 2005 CR-V owner, and so far liking the car. Only weird thing is a strange thumping/rattling sound coming from the front suspension that seems to occur at random parking lot speeds. I was told this is a common CR-V problem relating to the steering rack & pinion, is this...

  4. New CR-V Owner

    Greetings & Introductions
    My wife and I are new CR-V owners. In fact a first time Honda automobile owner. Many years ago I owned a Honda 450 motorcycle. We live in Lancaster County, PA and decided an SUV would be easier for us older people to get in and out of. Initially was looking at a RAV4 due to great service from...

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi everyone, Just bought myself a used CRV - 2007 Executive model with about 130,000 on the clock. Technically should be a downgrade from my previous 2014 Golf but in no way is that true, absolutely loving the CRV. As it’s an old car, I’m keen to get any tips/pointers on this type of car as to...
  7. New owner 2018 CR-V AWD Touring replacing rear differential fluid schedule?

    Maintenance and Service
    Maybe it is getting use to this Maintenance Minder but it has yet to go off or signal me on anything. I took it in for it's last freebie oil change at 15,400 miles and they deemed that according to the maintenance schedule it was due for a rear differential fluid change at 16K so go ahead...
  8. over 100k miles, original owner

    Greetings & Introductions
    I bought a 2011 EX-L (no Nav) and we drive it every day. 100k miles in 8 years is about 12.5k per year. Average! Just one new set of spark plugs besides regular oil/filter changes and air filters (cabin filter twice). Oh and also one set of Yokahamas that lasted over 70k miles. Just mounted a...

    Greetings & Introductions
    When should the timing belt be changed? My partner uses it for ski trips and for driving up to our cabin near the Canadian Border in Central Washington. It has 115,000 miles on it. I use it driving around town in Salem, Oregon.

  11. New Honda owner asking for advice

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    Hi I just bought a new to me 98 CRV. It's a 5spd manual with 160,000. The last owner said it needs an O2 Sensor and there is an exhaust leak in front, which I can smell when driving. It's a small pin hole. Nothing else is wrong with it except passenger window motor looks like it's about to die...

  13. New CRV Owner

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hi everyone. I am a new CRV owner, just bought a 2000. It has high miles (250k) but well cared for so I think it was a good deal for me. The only two real drawbacks are the passenger window does not work (power) and was told that its the motor. Wondering what that might cost and difficulty...

  15. New member, owner of 07' CRV

    Greetings & Introductions
    We have had our 07' CRV since new in Dec 2007. I plan to ask technical questions, mainly about distance available vs. mileage and fuel gauge. Hopefully as to why they are not communicating correctly, and if there is a easy owner fix available. We have had no problems with it other than these...

    During my wife's long drive home, she bought a 2014 CR-V EX-L. Its AWD, has i4 2.4L (non-turbo engine) and has 72K / 47k miles. I haven't even drove it around the block. If wondering, she gets to pick in up in 2-3 weeks. It's fully loaded with a front ram bar.... See picture for...
  17. Potential CRV owner with question

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello everyone! I was all set to buy a 2019 CR-V EX today but last night I came across the oil dilution issue and it's got me worried. When I zeroed in on the CR-V my car-knowledgeable friends told me to pay the slight premium for the EX rather than the getting the base LX. But, now I'm back...

    Hi guys, My wife of 57 years and I just bought a 2009 Honda crv EX-L. We love the car but wish it had a smoother ride, but I guess that's just the nature of the beast.
  19. New CR-V owner seeking transmission advice

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Just left the Odyssey club and joined the CR-V club. Got a 2008. About 125K. Transmission fluid was last changed at 60K. Should I flush and replace? Seems kind of a borderline case, but if I don't do it now, I should probably never do it. I would prefer to go ahead and do it if I can do it...
