  1. Salt used on roads eats away undercarriage

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Took my 2012 CRV in for oil/filter change, transmission oil change and rear differential fluid change. Upon examination, the tech (not a Honda dealer tech) noticed coolant was leaking under the vehicle along with transmission fluid leaking, albeit very slowly. First, let me preface that my CRV...
  2. CR-V Owners driving Gravel Roads?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Wondered how many other owners of 2017 CR-V's live on gravel roads and are disliking the wheel well material. We have to drive 3+ miles each way, every day, on gravel and when it is wet, the buildup in the wheel wells is very hard to get off. Our 2007 CR-V had a different material and is...

  4. How to control speed going down mountain roads in Colorado?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Hi, I am looking at purchasing a 2017 Honda CR-V Touring and am wondering how I can downshift to control my speed going down steep mountain roads, like Berthoud Pass or Floyd Hill in Colorado? My current Volvo XC70 has a semi-automatic transmission where I can select the gear to use when...
  5. 2007 CR-V steering shakes over rough roads

    Problems & Issues
    My 2007 has to deal with less than perfect roads on a daily basis. It's at 55k miles and used to have a power steering leak which I stopped with stop leak fluid. I put new front struts and tie rod ends at 50k and they look good. When I drive on smooth roads the steering feels great...But on...
  6. Trip report: exploring forest service roads in BC

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    I took my '15 CR-V today on a 4WD designated wilderness forest road an hour and a half out of Vancouver and I must say I was very impressed with how it performed. The V is a very capable little crossover. We drove on the Levette Lake forest road which is a steep 5 or so KM road, part gravel but...

  8. HELP! HELP! 2WD roads

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hi, I'm interested to hear from experts and CR-V users (I just bought a 2014 EX 2WD) what are the toughest and complex ways that the CR-V can take, and which ones you recommend NOT to take. I have normal tires (city use), 17-inch, front-wheel drive, 2.4L engine, and everything else you already...

  10. UK roads - are 235's an issue?

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Hi all, I bought a 2002 (mk2) CR-V a few weeks ago, so am a bit of a newbie... Loving it so far, much more suited to the winter weather than my mk1 MX-5! The CR-V went into a Honda dealership for a recall, and they spotted that it currently has 235 60 R16 100W's (Continental ContiEco CP)...
  11. NY salted roads and corrosion

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Greetings - I'm looking for my first CR-V, here in Washington State. I found a 2001 EX, AWD, black, automatic, that appears flawless in the ad, and has only 37,511 miles on it. The CarFax report is clean in all ways, and verifies the asserted mileage - which of course is quite low for a...
  12. CR-V or Freelander for mountain roads

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Hi, I recently moved to a mountainous area of Ireland (not really proper mountains, hills really). Last winter we couldn't get up the roads in our regular 2wd car (we didn't even try, ice and a bit of snow). So I'm in the market for a vehicle that will get me up a sometimes slippery mountain...

  15. Diesel loves A roads: 46 UK mpg

    Diesel CR-V
    I did a nice round trip at the weekend: 46 UK mpg over 68 miles (38.5 US mpg). Admittedly it's hard to maintain the mpg that good with cold starts and traffic! I would like to see 50 mpg on a run at some point though...
