  1. Why does my 2007 CR-V run circles around my 2010 CR-V?

    Problems & Issues
    I have 2 CR-Vs the first is a 2007 EX 2 wheel drive with 90,000 miles on it and it runs good. The 2nd is a 2010 EXL 4x4 that has 56,000 miles on it. The 2010 will hardly get out of its own way with the A/C running and I am not kidding. I bought it 6 months ago with 45k on it and has always run...
  2. 97 won't run well without a bottle of Heet in the gas tank

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I have a 97 CR-V with 36,000 on it. (That's not a typo, it's low mileage) I rarely take it on highways and when I tried last month it would not go over 30-35mph and the engine was not running well. I took the CR-V to a quick lube place for an oil change and they cleaned the fuel injectors and...

    Hi guys. I just did a timing belt along with some other stuff, the car ran fine before i did it, and now the car barely runs.

  9. Has any dealer run your credit (claiming the Patriot act) even if you paid cash?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    When I bought my CRV I didn't need any financing and yet the dealer wanted me to fill out a Honda credit application claiming that they needed to verify my identity for the patriot act and my driver's license wasn't good enough. They also said they couldn't verify the funds on my cashier's...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I tried this out and the system said it could not, but I wanted to see if any clever folks here had a workaround. I have both an iPhone (primary) and an old LG G2 that has a duplicate SIM from T-Mobile. Apple Car Play is great EXCEPT I think the Apple Maps stink and I'd rather use Google Maps...

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    First major run for the CR-V - a new-to-me '05 awd, 160K, in very nice shape - runs like new, looks like new, real tight and smooth-running on the highway. Avg. 9.5L/100K going up to the cabin, 9.6L/100K coming home, same as my '02 Tracker - and the Honda feels a lot more solid and less strained...
