  1. Flat tire due to poor quality control

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Yesterday my wife got a flat tire on her 2016. The tire was the original tire on the stock rim, and had never been off the vehicle. The tire had 23;000 of use. I took it to my local Honda dealer for repair. When the repair was completed, I was shown a piece of metal that was found inside the...

  3. Poor headlights on Gen 1?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 99 gen 1, the headlights are terrible especially on low beam, one headlight is relatively new and the other was faded but the lens has been polished. I tried some new bulbs, Hella 80%+ Daymakers, slightly brighter but not much. I have checked the voltage drop at the headlights and it...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Possible help for poor cabin heating...observation Guys... I discovered this by accident today. In my '18 Touring, got in this morning, it was cool out, 40ish F, and I hit the button to turn off the HVAC (left button of the physical buttons) so my wife wouldn't get cold air blowing on her...
  5. 2018 crv poor mileage and slow to warm

    Problems & Issues
    Purchased new 2018 CRV about 2 months ago, it got about 31 mpg on a 1000 mile road trip, but in town it's consistently getting 21mpg. This seems too low. No deluxe add-ons, pretty basic model. I drive very conservatively, use regular from Fred Meyers, which has never been a problem with our...
  6. Poor gas mileage after 02 sensor replacement?

    Performance Modifications
    2004 CRV EX, CEL came on, which pointed back to the pre cat 02. Replaced it with the Denso 234-9005 which after research, appears to be the Denso replacement for the factory sensor. I drive about 32 miles per day, 20 of those miles are freeway miles. Prior to the CEL and sensor replacement...
  7. 2018 CRV factory remote start has poor range

    Problems & Issues
    you almost have to standing in front the CRV before it works!! Absolutely worthless. Took back to the dealer twice, they claim it works fine. Is there anything that can be done? Range extender or even an AP for my phone? I'm about to buy an aftermarket system!!! Very frustrating!!!!
  8. CR-V poor heat survey data

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I would like to collect data from owners who are experiencing poor heat in the winter. Data point 1 Drive your CRV for at least 15 minutes on a day where the outside temp is at least 45 degrees F or higher. Then take a picture or note how high your water temp gauge is at. Data point 2 Drive...
  9. Poor Dealership Non-Service

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    So this is a combo rant and question - My '17 touring's tires have been wearing unevenly. They're wearing faster on the inside of tire and it's pretty noticeable when you're driving about 45-55 mph. It's a fast womp-womp-womp. Anyways, I've had it in to a dealer once to check it out. They...
  10. Poor starting

    Problems & Issues
    i My newly acquired 2003 CR-V 2.0 vtec petrol struggles to start. When the key is turned the car starts and runs for a few seconds but won’t rev as though it isn’t getting fuel, before cutting out. After several attempts it will start, however the revs May drop to a few hundred before jumping...
  11. Engine stumbling / hesitation / poor acceleration

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    For several months now, my CR-V seems to be having poor acceleration. At first I didn't know what to make of it but now I'm starting to think that something is malfunctioning or faulty. I'm not a mechanic so I can only speculate about what might be going on. I'll do my best to explain what...
  12. Poor radio reception after installing new Pioneer head unit

    Mobile Electronics
    I recently had the factory head unit in my 2008 Honda CR-V EX replaced with a Pioneer AVIC 5200NEX unit that I purchased from Crutchfield. I was disappointed to learn that the AM/FM reception is not as good as what i previously had with the factory unit. (Fyi, the Pioneer is not an HD radio.)...
  13. Poor man's topless Jap buggy build. Tons of questions!!

    Off The Beaten Path
    Not sure if I can start a build thread here but didn't see anywhere else to put it. I'm the proud owner of a totalled 2000 CR-V. The car was flipped last week but still runs and drives, just not legally. So my plan instead if scrapping or parting out is to cut the roof off(among other parts)...
  14. Contacting Honda USA for poor service from dealer

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    What's the best way to contact Honda Corporate about a dealership that refuses to address these TSBs? I've had the battery die with the parking brake set and the car sitting for three days; I've had the multiple warnings flash on the display - Auto High Beam Prob, ACC Problem, CMS Problem...
  15. Poor Gas Mileage on the 17 EX-L

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hello all. I love my new CR-V but consistently getting terrible MPG. I average right now COMBINED 20MPG. I am wondering if there is something more going on here. If I could get this up to 25 city I would LOVE my CR-V but as of now, I am very disappointed. Especially after hearing what other...
  16. Poor Gas Mileage. What Am I Doing Wrong?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I've had my EX-L for 3-4 months now and it has 2,800 miles on it. I do a mix of city and highway driving, with ACC on whenever possible. I have tried with ECON on and off. Despite all this I have only been averaging 25 mpg. What am I doing wrong?
  17. Fuel tank topless cap poor sealed

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Not sure any one noticed this issue. The topless cap could not seal the fuel tank properly. Last week I was out of town and parked my CRV in my garage, the CRV was the only vehicle in the garage.The garage door kept closed for a week. When I went home and got into the garage, there's very strong...
  18. Poor air conditioner performance on hot day

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    The temperature was over 100 this weekend here in the bay area. I had the air conditioner running full but the temperature of the blowing was not very cold, especially compared to the temperature output my air conditioner in my 2004 CRV would be. What have been your experiences with the air...
  19. Poor AM reception 2017 CRV Touring

    Problems & Issues
    I purchased a new 2017 CRV Touring last week. I primarily chose the Touring for the technology features and upgraded stereo. I have noticed that AM stations I normally get strong signals on in other vehicles now sound muffled. I want to check that the antenna was properly connected, but I cannot...

    Hey everyone, I have an 07 Crv with 170,000 miles on it. When I start the car it starts at a high rpm. Once I put it into another gear the rpm's drop down. I also am hearing a rattling noise which I believe is coming from the exhaust but I could be wrong (had an accord which rattled too but...
