    Does anyone have any tips for using the terrible touch-up paint pen that Honda sells now?

    My 2006 with 117K on the clock has paint issues. The worst is on the hood where there are two spots with fading and oxidizing paint. I've tried wax and compound without much success. Finally ran by a recommended shop to see just what the cost might be to paint and match. The quote is $605...

    I got a small jar (can, container, looks like a spaceship) off of Amazon. It is supposed to be genuine Honda White Diamond Pearl touch up paint (08703-NH603PAH-A1). But, it does NOT match at all. It is much lighter than the pearl paint job. After I bought it (and tried it) I found numerous...

    Has anyone had an issue with the paint chipping on their CRV? I have a White 2009 CRV that I purchased used in 2012. Within the past couple of years the paint on the hood and roof has started peeling. It seems to be just happening on the top of the vehicle. The sides and back are fine. I...

    Hello! I wanted to get touch up paint and a spoiler for my 2011 CRV and I'm running into paint code issues. My paint code is NH700MX. There is also a paint code for NH700M. They are both Alabaster Silver Metallic. Is there a difference in these codes for the same color? I've looked online and...

    Hi, newbie here. I washed my wife's 2016 CRV over the weekend and discovered that there was a paint chip/peeling on the roof about the size of a quarter coin. Please see attached photo. I took it to the dealership this morning and they told me that it was caused by bird droppings or sap from...

    Discovered this crack in the paint on my 2017 CRV while washing it today. I am afraid that it might grow or peel. Any ideas on how I might be able to mitigate the damage? Is the body shop my only real option for repairing this crack.

    Due to the extreme winds which occured yesterday, my car got scratched pretty nicely by falling shingles. Does anyone know of a paint shop around the GTA which could fix this problem?

    I backed my CR-V into a concrete column in a parking garage. It scratched up that short angled corner that runs below the rear tail light. Interestingly enough there was no dent or structural damage to the panel. it could be that the angle at which I struck the column aligned perfectly with...

    I'm trying to decide what to do here. Is the side of the CRV made of plastic? Someone opened their door and hit my driver side door today and it caused a piece of paint to chip off. Now there is a small black spot on my silver CRV. I was hoping it was their paint on mine car but I could feel...

    Stupidly backed into the pole of a basketball hoop today and it cracked some paint on the rear hood. It was also raining today. What is the most effective and economical way to get it repaired to prevent further damage? The crack is about 0.5-1.0 inch long.

    Happy New Year! I bought my very first Honda vehicle in my life and it is a 2018 CR-V EX. I will be using it as my commuter vehicle and therefore I am worry about the element on the road such as rock and debris that could easily chip the pain. I would like your advice on how to best maintain...

    The dealer doesn’t have touch up paint for wheels. Has anyone come up with paint colors for the rims? I have a few rock dings that need touching up. Thanks in advance.

    Well, it had to happen, I guess. The wife drives our 2017 Molten Lava EX - L w/Nav CRV and managed to back up swiping the side of a concrete support in a parking garage. :( Anyway, she took it to a body shop in town we used several years ago, and they were nice enough to buff out most of the...

    Has anyone had paint issues with their new CRV-EX? Mine has a shadow on the leading edge of the hood. Looks like an imprint of a half moon. I can't tell if it's in the gel coat or the paint underneath. My dealer has started a file on it and am waiting for the regional rep to look at it. I...
