    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.

    I recently bought a 97 CRV with 147,000 miles from a friend for $100. Original owner, dealer maintained mostly and in good condition overall. I don't drive very often but she just wanted to get rid of it and I figured it was cheaper than cabs and rental cars. I smelled coolant burning and...

    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...

  14. Wiper Blade Recommendation?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    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...
