    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello all! I recently purchased a 2011 CR-V SE and am interested in doing some upgrades. I will mention that I won't be installing these myself. I will either have my personal mechanic or another professional do the installation; I don't trust myself to do it! I need recs for head units that...
  2. Low on pads, recommendations

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hello everyone, I'm looking to replace the pads on my 03 CRV, I'm deciding between semi-met and ceramic pads, which pads could be better?? I'm very aggressive with the brakes, and I want the best stopping power (when braking seeing happening nicely) and firm pedal. If I can, I would like to get...

  4. 2007-2011 CRV with factory cross bars: Light Bar recommendations

    Hey Folks, I was hoping to pick your brains on light bars--I would like one that was thin enough to mount in front of the front cross bar of the OEM roof rack. The bar is about 1.25 to 1.5" tall and about 30" wide. I'm hoping to find one that matches the profile of the bar so the wind...
  5. Looking for seat cover recommendations

    I'm well aware of the Wet Okole brand - but are there any other quality seat covers at a much better price point? I want front seat covers: a. to protect against dirt, liquids, sweat b. plus to add some color to an otherwise bland interior c. rear seat covers - same as above but more...

  7. 2011 CR-V newbie, roof rack recommendations?

    Greetings & Introductions
    I am now the parent of a very happy 2011 CR-V SE owner. I am looking for recommendations for a flat-crossbar roof rack, which l plan to install it myself. (It won't be my first.) Maximum strength and minimum wind noise are high priority, and if it's less than $200, so much the better. Your...

    Another code yesterday P 0138. The car has a recent aftermarket Cat. And it was bitterly cold so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it, but figured I might as well replace it. Does anyone have any brand recommendations?
  9. Buyer recommendations (Gen 3) vs (Gen 4)

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Recently my 2001 C-rv finally bit the dust with needing a transmission replaced at 260,000 miles. It served me well with little trouble through the years even with its weird quirks towards the end. I'm looking at a few models between 2011/2014 but skeptical with so many complaints with certain...

    Thinking about getting a drop in replacement air filter for our 18 EX-L: Anyone have either the oiled or dry version? Have an AFE Pro Dry on my 2009 Tacoma and it has lasted forever, and means one less thing to remember to maintain...

  15. Recommendations for Vehicle Service Contracts

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello from North Carolina. I just bought a 2018 first Honda. The dealer tried to sell me a comprehensive vehicle service contract from Zurich American Ins. Co. Online reviews aren't great and CR doesn't recommend them at all. However, I usually keep a vehicle for 8-9 years...
  16. GPS recommendations for 2018 EX-L

    Mobile Electronics
    I bought a new 2018 CRV EX-L for my wife. I must say I am spoiled by the built in navigation in my F350 truck and was surprised this model did not have nav. I do understand that we could tether our Samsung phones and use the google maps app for nav. Does the google maps show on the main display...
