  3. Do I Fix It? 2001 Needs Major Repairs

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, long-time lurker first time poster. Until about a week ago, I drove and loved my 2001 (well-used, with about 240,000 on the clock). Then, it dropped the driveshaft on the way to work. In spectacular "when it rains, it pours" fashion, the mechanic then couldn't start the car and has told...
  4. door leaks after having door mechanism repairs performed

    Problems & Issues

    My current dealer can't seem to reprogram my 2017 CR-V Touring Honda Sensing system after front end crash repairs (on $1300 damage). Took them 4 days without success.

    Two weeks ago I hit a deer with my 2017 CR-V. Damage to body was minor (about $1000 - no air bag deployment). However, the deer took out the radar in the front grill.

    Hi, Today I received some sad news from the mechanic, they told me they didn't think my 2005 CR-V was worth the rapairs needed. I love my car and I really don't want to lose her but I can't put the money into her if she isn't going to last. Here are some specs: 336,036km 2005 4 door, all...

    So I brought my 97 cr-v to the shop because the crank pulley was wobbling. I ended up replacing the serpentine belts, water pump, timing belt components, valve cover, and harmonic balancer. The problem is, the pulley still wobbles! Does anyone have advice as to the problem before I get any...

    Hi all Just a quick first time question (first time I have had an issue with the car!) How does one go about rejoining the rubber seal that goes around the back tyre cover onto the plastic? It is just one of those covers you stretch the elastic over the tyre. I was told black urothane but I...
  17. 2001 CRV purchase - price and repairs?

    Maintenance and Service
    My '97 died a violent death in a recent hail storm. I've owned several Honda's, each has been purchased from the owner. I'm considering a 2001 CRV that is sitting at a local dealer so I realize I'm going to have to retail. I think the down turn in the economy and our recent storm might be...
