  1. Paint issues

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    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...

  3. easiest way to fix this paint damage?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I accidentally ran into another vehicle today. Here is the damage: I don't want to spend big money on it, but I do want to make it look better. I am thinking about buying touch up paint and taking care of it myself. Currently, I can't tell if the whitish blemish is due to another...
  4. Caked-on Bird Poop(?)

    Not sure if this belongs here, recently came back from a month-long trip and found this on the passenger side door. Not too sure what it is, possibly really caked-on bird poop. Anyone have any idea of how to remove it? Cannot remove it with fingernails, it's on there quite well and does protrude...

  6. [2015] Rear bumper gray paint color?

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows the color code of the gray paint on the lower portion of the rear bumper. There are some paint chips and I'm hoping to make them less noticeable. The vehicle is Modern Steel Metallic, but I don't think that matters since all the 2015 CR-Vs (and maybe all the...

    Can anyone recommend a good source for touch-up paint? I know sooner or later I'll be needing it for hopefully minor chips.
  8. Paint on Door Edge

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    So, the very first night I brought my new CR-V home and pulled it into the garage, I made a boo-boo by simply opening the driver door too wide, causing the door edge to lightly "tap" the cement block wall. There wasn't much force involved, so luckily no dent. The block in the garage is painted...
  9. Removing scuff marks from paint?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    We've had our new CR-V all of 5 days now, so naturally there's already some scuff marks on the paint. I suspect it happened during a car wash yesterday, but can't be certain. It kind of looks like a smudge of finger prints on the passenger door. The color is Gunmetal. Can anyone recommend a...
  10. Paint Question?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    This is my first Honda and I noticed that the paint under the hood and rear hatch does not appear to have a gloss clearcoat applied. It appears to be a satin finish. Is this normal on Honda vehicles and if so what is the benefit?

    Anyone know if Honda sells touch up paint, or even a spray can of silver that matches the steel rim on a 2011 CRV LX?
  12. Paint Issue-Black 2013 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    SO----a small 4" x 5" patch to left of rear hatch appears to be missing the clear coat/shiny stuff. I've actually been told that both the clear coat AND the paint are missing and dealer thinks I (or someone) sanded it down. Upon further inspection, it appears that there are similar areas of...
  13. A strange paint protection omission

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    If you notice in all Hondas, Honda puts a transparent circular sticker to protect the paint from the door rubber stoppers. I found that all my doors have it but I don't have that under the hood. My post was originally going to consist of how my 06 Si has them but it turns out it doesn't have...

  15. Paint quality on new CRV?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    So we leased a 17 CR-V touring model for the wife. $450/month with just inception. Didn't think it was a bad deal considering they aren't budging and the best lease deal I saw online was $433 with 3k down. Anyway I convinced her to pay a little more for the touring cause the headlights are...

    Is this normal? I can see a ton of the white paint color like it wasnt painted black or the covers are missing?
  17. Looking for the right spray trim paint (black)

    Hi All, N00b here so glad to join the site. My 2015 CRV has some surface damage on the door trim. The body shop previously painted other areas of the trim and it looked great so I know there's no fading going on. I tried the Rustoleum black trim paint and it was too dark. I then tried the...

    Hi, I'm new to CRV forums and I just had questions on how to deal with some of the things on my CRV. Recently I noticed on my CRV that there is quite a lot of paint wear on the rear door hinge of my CRV. I was posting here to see if anyone has advice on how to deal with this kind of wear.

  20. Body Side Molding - SAVE THAT PAINT!

    Sportwing Body Side Molding are great, and the colors match so well --- I don't know why my car was made without such protection, but it sure was easy to add it later to protect the paint from people in adjacent parked car that could care less if they bang up your car doors. See Picture of...
