    Gen 5: 2017-Present 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...
  5. Questions about remote lock and remote start

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I hate the fact that when you lock the car the horn/beep is so low I can barely hear it when the car is locked. Is there any way to make it louder? And also I wish the remote start would alert you better when the car is running. Any suggestions?

    Problems & Issues
    I usually get my oil changed in my 2010 CR-V EX-L at a trusted local mechanic that specializes in Honda. They couldn't do it on my day off so I went to the dealer. At the dealer they also informed me of an passenger side airbag recall which I had fixed as well. This dealer did the driver's side...
  15. 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)...

  18. 2015 Touring AWD questions - unknown symbol, no backup warning beep? Blurry cams

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Hi - First post here, found the forum when I was trying to figure what the odd image is that flashes on the bottom of the info display. It's accompanied by a couple of beeps and a quick something on the display - is it some kind of driver alert warning? It seems to be random. Another question I...
  19. New CRV - couple of questions?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hello, Always hate to make a first post be something negative, but perhaps there is an easy solution! (I should add that we have an appointment with the dealer next week!) 1st - As far as the hands free phone, it is clear on our end (in the car) often times terribly quiet with the volume...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
