  1. Has anyone replaced just the stock speakers in their 2015 crv?

    Mobile Electronics
    So my mom likes her 2015 crv but her only complaint is the sound system. So to help her, I am considering replacing the stock speakers for the Kenwood KFC-1666S.

  2. 2003 CRV 2.4 liter - P1259 code. I've replaced the VTEC Solenoid

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I'm helping my dad with his 2003 Honda CRV. Last week the P1259 code came on while he was on his way to work, and the car would shutter around 3000 rpm. At first we assumed the shuttering was due to transmission problems. First thing I did was do a flush and fill on the tranny. Of course this...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I've read the posts that indicate this is a fairly usual problem with these guys. Several people said that it leaked into the boot first and then messed up the rack & pinion. I am brand new to this forum, and I am in no way a mechanic, so here is my question....which might sound dumb to some...

    I have a 2006 Honda CR-V with 101,000 miles on it. I had recently purchased it from a dealer who got it from out of state (auction I assume).
