  1. Napa Coated Rotors are Awesome

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I put all new brakes on my 05 and 07 crv, I used Napa coated rotors and Honda oem pads, the rotors look good and they are performing flawlessly, they are supposed to keep the rotors cooler and aren't supposed to rust like other rotors do.

    Just brought my 2016 Touring with 21,000 miles in for an oil change. During the multi point inspection I was informed, "rear pads are sticking very badly..uneven wear 4mm..rotors are rusted but can be saved today". I was also told by the service rep that "currently Honda's rotors are made from...

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi 2 weeks ago I took the CR-V (1999 1st Gen) in for its NY State inspection. I had replaced the Catalyst and exhaust system with stainless and was expecting it to pass. I knew I needed to look at the front brakes but they seemed to be working though they did not feel quite right. It failed...

  6. Rotors are warped and glazed; pads are at 85%. What do I have to replace?

    Maintenance and Service
    I recently had my break pads replaced (<6 months) and the rotors treated. Recently, I've been experiencing some vibration upon breaking, so I took my CR-V into who I think is a reputable mechanic. He pulled the wheels off and showed me how the rotors are glazed and warped. "OK, no problem, time...

    '14 CR-V LX AWD @ 50K miles. Minimally, need to replace the front pads (possibly rotors). Dealership wants $68 for OEM pads and $280 for OEM rotors. Seems high. Does anyone have recommendations for higher quality alternative replacements? What are the stock pads made of (ceramic...
  8. 13V rear rotors

    Maintenance and Service
    hello people; I had a rear brake job done at about 60,000 miles. The rotors looked like grap so I thought it might be a caliper issue. I was told I just needed pads and rotors. They put on (not a dealer) a aftermarket rotor and they did not tell me what brand. With about 5000 on them the rotor...
  9. 2006 rear brakes - drum or disk? Never seen this before...

    Problems & Issues
    I recently bought a 2nd hand 2006 CR-V LX. Very basic, bare-bones. There was noise coming from the driver side rear wheel. I thought it was either a brake issue or wheel bearing. I jacked the car up and spun the wheel and could feel some resistance at certain points as it turned. I pulled...
  10. Preventing Rust on Rotors

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi Everyone. So, I've only got a couple thousand miles on my CR-V so far. When I look at some other cars and look at the rotors, many times I'll see a build up of rust. Are our rotors rust resistant? Is there something that I can do to help prevent rust buildup and keep them looking nice? Thanks...
  11. Cr-V 2014 Brake pads and rotors wear at the same rate???

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Has anyone heard that the 2014 is made in such a way that the brake pads and rotor wearout together at the same rate? They rub together or something when you brake. Meaning they always have to be replaced at the same time. The dealer says my rear ones need to be replaced immediately but front...

    Maintenance and Service
    9 months and 10K mi. ago I redid the brakes on my 2009, all around. I used EBC Green Stuff pads and non drilled rotors. All was fine for about the first 5K and then I started experience steering wheel shudder while braking at intermediate speeds. Driving is fine, just breaking between 20-60mph...

    I was changing a rear tire on my 2013 CRV - the steel wheel was stuck to the rotor, had to kick the tire to release.
