    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Yesterday I was driving on a highway close to home on a stretch where I drive all the time. All of a sudden I saw flashing yellow brake warning and heard beeps. The CRV (2018, bought 3/18, around 7500 miles) braked mildly till the warnings disappeared. Fortunately it did not come to a stop. I...

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I'll start the serious shopping at the end of June. There isn't much information out there on the minor changes to the model for 2015. Is it worth waiting for the change of model year? Has anyone heard of any interesting changes? When do the new ones come out anyway? I'd like to get the car...

    I purchased a 2014 CRV AWD EX-L last month and within a week had problems with the TPM system. After multiple trips back to the dealership to check pressure, reset light etc I was promised that they would replace the system if it happens again. The light was back on before I returned home. I...

  7. Help-VSA coming on for no reason

    Problems & Issues
    My 2005 is having a strange problem that my local mechanic can't figure out. While driving the vehicle will start to jerk and the VSA light and engine light comes on. Decreasing the speed stops the condition, but I have to cut the ignition and restart the car to make it stop. My mechanic could...

    My 2002 CRV (2nd gen)(120k miles) hasn't idled properly for about a week now - simply stalls every time if I dont keep the throttle open. Went online and found 2 of the most common reasons: 1. vacuum problem. 2. Dirty or faulty IACV. I've had the thottle housing off and removed the IACV...

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2001 CR-V with a factory alarm. Once every couple of days the alarm will activate for no reason. It's done three days in a row, twice between 5 and 6 in the morning. The neighbours really like me! I have seen it happen, there was nothing around it and no wind. I pulled the fuse...
