  1. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Sorry for my ignorance as I have been a Subaru driver and not had a Honda since my 2000 Civic EX coupe. I purchase a 2019 Touring AWD CRV and I am seeing things I believe are QC issues but maybe they are normal for Honda? -Hood has debris under paint - white pearl - drivers side roof rail has a...

    I’m new to the site and new to CR-Vs, and I’d like to know what is the recommended service manual and which is the best LED headlight replacement. Oh and where can I find the paint code? Harrison 08 EX-L AT AWL (Hilary’s Bane)

    Going to tackle this tomorrow with some of the replacement KYB Struts Plus they recently started making for this Gen.3 CRV (KYB SR4233 & SR4234) I got my instruction from this A1 Auto video. I need to know if his torque values are correct (all in ft.lbs)... 5 top bolts under the hood, 33 2...

    Hi Guys, new guy here. My name is Tyler, live up in New York. I have been around cars for years...typically a GM guy (I know that's taboo to admit when around Japanese car loyalists), but my future wife has a '17 CRV and I have a few questions on some maintenance stuff: 1. Do you guys have...

    Sup, all. My name is Christopher and I just leased a 2019 EX AWD yesterday. I live in western NC (Blue Ridge foothills) but originally hailed from northern IN. I needed something to replace my 2010 Buick Enclave CXL AWD. (195k miles but looks like 19.5k) I opted for the EX over the EX-L due to...
  7. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Dear all, I have a 2011 V (SE) which currently has about 68K miles on it. About 6 months ago the dealer did the ATF flush and changed the transmission fluid for me. However, recently I noticed that the transmission fluid level is awfully low, so I filled it up with Honda ATF fluid DW-1...

    My Wife has a 2011 CRV SE. It has 85,000 miles on it. That VTC makes noise when starting. Will that ever clear up on its own?? Just started a few weeks ago. Dealer said that Honda told them it is no problem. Just don't like the noise when starting cold. Dealer told me it is $900 for the part...
  10. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hello all! I have recently upgraded to a 2016 CRV from a 2004. Two questions...1) Now that Winter has arrived here in Indiana, I want to start my car (in a parking lot for example) and sit for a bit while it warms up, but the Running Lights AUTOMATICALLY come on, so you can't sit there in the...
  11. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I'm in the Northeast US and I'm looking to buy a CR-V as early as this November. I'd like to wait until the 2019s are out and pick up a 2018 on sale if possible, but I haven't bought a Honda in many years and I'm not sure if their inventory scheduling makes this possible. I went for a test...
  12. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi, When I ordered my 2018 CRV EX a few weeks ago I asked to have a hitch installed so I could cary my bikes behind the car. The dealer didn't give me any real options for the hitch and only prsented one choice which I got installed. I think it's the 1.25" (see photo attached) I've checked...
  13. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    My 2003 has the optional security system and keyless entry installed. When I bought it, it had a aftermarket radio installed and during the day, it had driving lights on and if I turned the headlights on without the car running, the radio would come on. I installed a factory radio which was easy...

  15. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I recently bought a year-old 2017 EX-L CR-V and haven't quite figured out the walk-away door lock. I know it's an option in the settings, and it seems to work after I've selected it, but at times it doesn't seem to be working. I'm wondering if manually using the lock button on the remote fob...
  16. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hello All, I'm new to the forums and a new owner of a pre-owned Honda-certified 2016 CRV LW AWD purchased in MD right outside DC. The sales experience was great. The vehicle came with standard wheels, but as a result of a quick mention, the salesperson wrote me a post-sales letter and asked me...
  17. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hello everyone! I am a new owner of 2001 CR-V. Overall it is a great vehicle. Done 2 out of 3 changes of the oil. Is it normal to have a little bit of "shake" when switching to R and D? Also when shifting from 1 to 2 gear in the low rpms it is a little bit hard. I don't have any other problems...

  20. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I purchased this vehicle last week, I just love it. Honda sensing just impresses the heck out of me along with android auto. I must admit I didn't do the research on the vehicle as extensively as I should have. I went off consumer reports and youtube review videos. I had no idea there was a gas...
