  1. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Streets of San Diego are rated poor 3rd world at best. CR-V rides like an unsprung buckboard. Any idea how to soften the ride short of trading for a Buick which my friend the Cady/Buick dealer recommends. Is the Acura any better? Does anyone make a strut that will improve the ride? Any...

  4. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hello. I own a 2002 Honda Honda CRV EX Model 5 speed manual transmission. I am writing for advise as the rear end of my CRV is lower than the front of the CRV and it annoys me. The rear end of my vehicle measures 27 inches from the ground to the base of the wheel-well fender bottom. The...

    We are purchasing a 2008 CRV EX-L and have a question about how to make the ride smoother. My wife has a Toyota Camry that she thinks rides smoother. She thinks the crv rides like a bucking bronco. Is there a way to make the ride smother? (Shocks,tires,etc) Also the leather seats are hard...
  6. Problems & Issues
    Hiya, Anyone ever had oil pressure problems 'off' road? Drove an hour on heavily rutted iced 'road' recently, bouncing in and out of the icy ruts. Probably around 2" to 4" or so in depth most of the time. Speed slowish, average 20-25mph, maybe 35 on the better bits. After about an hour, I saw...
  7. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I have 166,000 miles on it, it all started when we had the compliance bushings and the end links replaced, after they replaced the bushings and end links because of a front klunking noise the ride was so bad it felt like we had wooden wheels, now that it has been cold here in Ohio the struts...
  8. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I love my new CR-V 2016 awd with one issue. I think the ride is too stiff at slow speeds. I can literally feel every bump, every pavement crack in the road bed. Now when I first got the car, the tire pressure was too high. I lowered it to the recommended 33 psi. The ride is still rough...

  10. Greetings & Introductions
    Hello, We just acquired new white EX-AWD ride this week; the dealer seemed to have a boatload of AWDs so it was too good of a deal to bypass. I have to admit I was a little hesitatant on adding more complexity since we are not a "4-wheeling type" family, but found credible evidence (before...
  11. Problems & Issues
    Hi guys, My 2001 has a quirk: sometimes it shakes to the point the dashboard starts rattling. The feel from the motor reminds me of when the AC compressor kicks on (slight resistance on the motor, slight rumble/growl sound), except more severe. The shaking only occurs under the following...

    Hello, this is my first post please excuse my ignorance. I have a 2015 Base Model Crv, two wheel drive.I have been driving it for three months now, about 2000 miles on it. As of today I felt something off as if I had a flat tire, or just something is wrong with the ride. It started to ride...
  13. Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I've joined the club literally today by driving my new 2015 CR-V EX form the dealership. I had a test drive of this model and the competition and was not only satisfied, the CR-V was a clear winner. Then I made the dealer find me the particular combination of interior/exterior colors...
  14. Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I love my mk2 Crv ( a few issues asside) it's good on road but I bought it for two reasons. Large load space and something I could take on rough tracks. We are not talking green landing here or off road courses just farm lanes etc. Recently been having to visit a farm down a long pot...

    We took my wife's 2012 to Palm Springs and back this weekend, a 300 round trip. First time I've really driven her car that distance. What struck me was the difference in road feedback between the V and my 15 year old Sienna. Her car has the factory Conti tires. My van, creaky with age, rides a...

Having now looked over the 2013 CRV 2.4 4x4 in the showroom my question is this... In the valued opinion of people who already own this model what is the ride quality like...
