    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good DIY grade scan tool for a 2013 CRV? Something that can read OBDII and ABS codes, reset codes, see sensor data, etc. The $40 ones are too limited and the $1,000 are just way too much money.

    Im did the winter tire swap in my garage on my CRV using the stock crappy scissor jack, found it flimsy and unstable. Anyone here purchase aftermarket ones that can swivel the handle and can anyone recommend (especially the ones frm canada) a good brand. tia

    Hi, Hello, It is time again to replace the tires due to rot. Once again I am struggling to determine what tire is best for this car. The car is housed in VA so we do get snow and of course we have hills. I would like to get All season tires. Does anyone have any recommendations on these tires...

    I've been reading several threads on here about using a dash cam and its benefits. I've looked at several online and they seem a little bulky. I don't want to take it up/down all the time, I want to leave it in place. I'm just concerned about theft, I don't want someone causing break-in...

    Just a quick recommendation of the dealer I purchased my new CR-V EX-L from. Anderson Honda in Palo Alto has the absolute Best Prices on New Honda Vehicles, hands down. As a veteran of 15 years in the Auto Retail business in Sales and Management, and 6 years Honda experience I have to say this...

  11. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I love most aspects of my CRV but one item I am not crazy about is the loudness of the ride at highway speeds. This fall I have a chance to get some new tries at a special rate and was thinking about getting tires that claim to offer a quieter ride. I am looking for all season or all weather...

    Hello, I'm looking for a Side Step or Nerf bars that will fit a 2004 Honda CR-V. I wanted to get the original OEM (08L33-S9A-100) but unfortunately, it's discontinued. Ideally I want one that is "Drill Free". I tried googling around and a lot of them does not show weather it's drill free or...

    I need to replace all of the wiper blades on my 2012 CR-V, which includes the driver, passenger, and tailgate. From what I've read, it seems like the biggest problem for CR-V owners is that the 26" blade is really long. Some wiper designs simply don't do a very good job of keeping the entire...

    Hi everyone, I'm looking for recommendations for good independent shops near Abingdon, MD that specialize in Honda/Acura. My mom lives there and has a 2007 CR-V. She keeps getting ridiculous quotes for work from the dealer she's been taking it to. For example, she called me the other day saying...

    I'm looking for recommendations for a replacement for the NAVI system in my 2008 CRV EX-L. Thanks.
  18. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Can anyone recommend decent rear L/R shocks for my 05 CRV LX? Is there a part number for these shocks? From what i understand the shocks and struts are not OEM, that Honda uses aftermarket shocks/struts. thanks!

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good dash cam that offers front and back monitoring? I've been looking at the Garmin models, primarily because I trust the brand. The KDLinks also looks really good, but I don't think either company offers a model with front and back monitoring. Perhaps...

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2014 Honda CRV, top of the line (I can't remember quite what it's called). But it's the best one you can buy. I want to use my MP3 player, but when I plug it in using any means (AUX, USB, etc.), it isn't recognized by the car. My MP3 player is a MyZen, and I think the...
