  1. Hard to put oil dipstick back

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi Just bought CR-V 2018 Touring and I decided to check oil. And it is honestly quite hard to put oil stick back. I had to rotate it, move up and down until it fits back. I never had that issue on 2014 Civic or 2014 Accord. Does anybody else have this problem? Vlad
  2. Now what does CRV stand for can you put a three letter name using C R V

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Can you put three words starting with the C R V now to your Honda. Hearing all the downs and some ups here C= R= V= See if you can top that in a Heart beat
  3. just put 1K down on 2018 CR-V EX-L. Am getting floor mats. Anything else?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi there, Am finally purchasing a new CR-V (EX-L model; I live in Canada so I really wanted the heated steering wheel). I typically keep a car for many years (my current CR-V is 10 years old), so want to protect it as best I can. Am adding the Protection Package floor mats, and will be getting...
  4. Put Key Fob in an RFID wallet to prevent theft?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    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...
  5. 2014-CRV EX - Odd smell when I really put my foot down.

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Hey there folks, I've found that I randomly get an odd eggy/fart smell when i really put my foot down in my new CR-V. I bought it two weeks ago and I'm wondering what it might be? Solution? My wife thought I was farting...seriously (but, that's fair, I guess). Thanks Matthew
  6. 2003 CR-V 5MT - Cant Clutch and Put Car In Gear

    Problems & Issues
    My girlfriend has a 2003 CR-V 5MT. She drove home the other day, descended 4 floors down in our parking garage, parked, and left the car over night. She went to leave the next day and you can't put the selector in gear while depressing the clutch. You can put the car in gear while it's off...

    Maintenance and Service
    oil in until I can get an oil change done? At 15% right now. Also, does anyone know in Chicagoland area how much it usually runs to have transmission fluid changed? Thanks for any help!
  8. How do I put playlists and songs on USB for 2017 Honda crv touring?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have mp3s in iTunes. I have a 32gb flash drive formatted as Fat32. Do I create separate folders for each playlist and put respective songs in each? Do I place m3u playlists in each individual folder or root directory? I used a third party program to "make" a USB for car music, and the songs...
  9. What kind of gas do you guys put in the car?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Owner manual says use unleaded gasoline of 87 octane or higher is recommended. Is it worth it to put 91 in our cars?
  10. A small question: Where do you put loose change?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I just picked up my CR-V Monday. I'm very happy with it so far, especially given that my biggest complaint right now is that it doesn't seem to have a spot to organize loose change. I've spent less than an hour in the car so far, so I might have overlooked an obvious solution. Anyone have any...
  11. Where are you going to put your handgun?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Bet this post gets some interesting responses. I have a Concealed Carry License and have always kept a handgun in the console area of my cars. (Thank God I have never had need for it.) I have a Touring coming in two weeks and have been reading and preparing for the "equipping" of it when I...
  12. Radio shut off when put in park

    Mobile Electronics
    Is there a way to make the radio not shut off until you open the door? I'd like to be able to turn off the engine to stop burning fuel but listen to the rest of the song or news story or whatever. Yeah, I could turn off the engine, miss a few seconds while I turn on 'acc' but it seems like there...
  13. I put Underbody LED Lights on my CR-V

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Last summer I installed underbody LED lights so I could have that hovering glowing light under my "V". I know alot of people don't like underbody lights but I personally love it! I'm waiting on some more so I can put in my fender wells and I am presently making 1/2" aluminum rings so I can hae...
  14. Possibleto put OEM 2015/16 Console in a 2012?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Title kind of says it all, but I'm really itching to get some phone functionality from my 2012 CRV. A relative just got a 2016 with the HDMI and the new console. (Theoretically speaking, of course,) If I were able to get my hands on a console from the 2015/16 year models (the nice touchscreen...
  15. Let's Put Some Color in Those Colors!

    Dear Honda:
    Honda, I didn't think it was possible to make red dull, but you started doing it a couple years ago and have been refining your technique with all colors ever since. Looking at the '16s, you have reached a new level in dull. It's really bad when a color called Urban Titanium is the brightest...
  16. CD won't eject due to CD put in wrong side up

    Problems & Issues
    My daughter put a CD in with the wrong side up and now it won't eject. I have a 2005 CRV LX. I tried looking inside the small opening and try to see it to grab with some tweezers but cannot see the edge of the CD. Any suggestions on how to get the CD out?
  17. CRV Modifications (Don't know where to put these!)

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hi, 3 questions if I may? Most likely nooby questions, but who cares, right? lol Please remember that I've never owned a car before and certainly not something as advanced as this. All my motorcycles were/are bare-boned mechanics!! My CR-V is 2011 and 'ES' model. 1) I want to upgrade the...
  18. 2008 CR-V aftermarket bluetooth: put the mic hidden in map lights area?

    Mobile Electronics
    I plan to put my new Pioneer FHX720BT to replace the factory radio this weekend. There are three possible places to put the mic: 1. The driver's side sun visor; 2. The steering wheel column cover, like the picture below from this post 3. Hide it under the map lights area: Place #3 is the...
  19. 2000 CRV, 10sq-ft DynaMat -- Where to put? Anywhere?

    Mobile Electronics
    I have ended up with 10sq-ft of DynaMat. Is there anywhere in a 2000 CR-V LX that it would be worthwhile to put just that much DynaMat? Most of the compartment noise I perceive seems to come from the engine through the floor under my feet near the firewall and through the front doors... Thank...
