    I owned a 2017 EX AWD. I just noticed this sound today after parking I stayed in the car for a while and noticed it coming from under the dashboard. After I turned off the engine for a few seconds, this tiny clicking sound comes out. It's not loud, not fast; just a regular and slow clickings...
  6. Switch from ACC to Regular CC

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Does anyone know if it's possible to turn off the adaptive cruse control and use regular cruse control? I ask because when the sensor is blocked (by snow or heavy rain, etc.) the ACC turns off, then I have no CC at all. Can you turn on just plain old cruise control to hold a steady speed in...
  7. Regular? Gas

    Greetings & Introductions
    Just purchased a 2017 CR-V LX two days ago. The salesman assured me it would take regular gas. However, the owners manual recommends "regular 87" gas. In Colorado, regular gas is 85 & mid-grade is 87. Can I use the Colorado regular 85 gas, or should I use the mid-grade 87? Thanks

    I recently got some Chevron Motor Oil at Costco b/c it was cheap and I think I'm due for an oil change. I was told by the auto shop years ago it was synthetic that they put in. I have several questions: 1- i got 5w-30. Couldn't remember if that's right for my 97 CRV, is this right? 2- can I...

  15. Do most people use the Honda brand oil and filter for regular oil changes?

    Maintenance and Service
    I'm wondering if most people use the Honda brand oil and filter for oil changes? I'm guessing this is a conventional oil and reviews on the filter are pretty good. But, I'm wondering if it's worth going through the money/trouble to get the Honda oil instead of some other good conventional at...
  16. does full synthetic oil get dirtier than regular oil?

    Maintenance and Service
    Switched our 2005 CRV from regular oil to full synthetic. When I did the first change of the synthetic, it looked very dirty - is this normal for this type of oil? ( only about 3000kil or about 2000 miles) I did this change because of the color of the oil on the dipstick. The vehicle...
  17. Premium gets better mpg than regular?

    Under The Hood / Performance
    I talked to my buddy the other day who owns a 2007 Pilot and he mentioned his switch to premium unleaded from regular and his car can be driven 2-3 days longer than normal between fillups. And he figured it's worth the price. Of course he didn't have any hard numbers to support his claim but I'm...
