  1. A very nifty device to help prevent getting stuck with a dead battery.

    Maintenance and Service
    I got one of these for my Van because I don't use it that often, only when I need to haul stuff or larger tools. Sometimes my battery ends up being dead and this has so far worked to prevent that from happening. It's a bit bulky and a bit expensive...

    So I have a 2018 Honda CRV EX AWD. When I connect my iPhone with wire to the vehicle and play a music, it mutes the music automatically if I try to record a video with the same phone while connected. But I want the song to keep playing while recording the video. How to do this? Thanks!
  3. Valve cleaning on DI engines to prevent buildup.. "yes" or "no"

    Maintenance and Service

    I have a 2018 EX AWD (not seeing a 2018-Present section here yet), just got it a few weeks ago and the keyless entry/remote start is new to me. I do love it. But I run a community group on Facebook for my neighborhood and people are posting that their cars are being stolen when using remote...
  6. Prevent Headlight Yellowing

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Has anyone had success with products such as the Xpel Headlight Protection Kit? I find it interesting that in their description that they mention that UV rays are a problem, but then they don't specifically mention that their product protects against it.

    Performance Modifications
    Hey, I just got an 02 CR-V around a month ago, been posting in the welcome forum and reading other posts. One concern I have is things have a light amount of rust on them under the hood. Like where the brake lines go together, things like that. The car overall is immaculate for its age, but I...
