  1. Sidestep Installation Trouble - Turns out the pre-threaded holes are rusty :(

    Problems & Issues
    Okay, so I was able to find a set of original Honda CR-V 2005 sidesteps (the ones you can get installed straight from the factory) which I wanted to add my Honda but when I started crawling beneath the car to try and mount the brackets I realized that the pre-threaded holes in the body of the...
  2. [2000 CR-V] Loud, rusty Pipe B. Will this fix get me by for a little longer?

    Problems & Issues
    Hello Family! This is my first post. I'm so worried about my poor CR-V. I changed the spark plugs a few weeks ago because it was misfiring. That fixed that, and it runs great now, but the exhaust is very loud. I'm worried that it's the catalytic converter (since it was misfiring and was...
  3. 2007 CRV Rusty Undercarriage - Should I just get a new vehicle?

    Problems & Issues
    I would like to get some additional opinions on this. Is this rust on the under carriage so bad that I should just try to get out of this vehicle altogether? My mechanic indicates to me that I am very likely to have ongoing problems that will become more severe. Here is a video of the rust...
  4. Rusty trailer hitch 2010 crv

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hello I put the Curtis hitch on my wife's crv a few years ago, never used it but it has surface rust and the powder coating is worn off where the safety chains attach. I am surprised it happened that fast hitch never even used and crv is always in garage. What would be the best paint to...
  5. Rusty rear brake lines-cylinders

    Greetings & Introductions
    Brakes are a safety device: At the 120K scheduled maintenance (yesterday), the Independent Honda-Toyota Technician could not bleed the rear brake cylinders because they are "rusty". Otherwise, the CR-V that I have owned for eight years has been renewed again with Honda...
  6. Rusty wheels.

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I live near Buffalo, infamous for our snow...and salt, that eats our cars. I have an '08 LX so of course it doesn't have alloy wheels. They are rusty in spots. Any way to remove and prevent or should I just start looking for alloy replacements?
  7. AMBER ALERT- RUSTY spots on 2012 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, I am hoping I get some feedback from owners in the same situation. I purchased my NEW 2012 CRV exactly one year ago. I have opted for paint/rust protection to be applied by dealer then. To my BIG disapointment I discovered today -after washing my car- that I have many rusty spots all...
  8. Rusty

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi, We're thinking of buying a 2002 second generation CR-V. Tere is some visible rust on the shocks and part of the steering. I'd really welcome any thoughts on whether this is likely to be a major problem! Thank you, R Pics
  9. Under my front doors are rusty

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    I just bought a 99 v and the only rust on it at all is just along the very bottom of the doors and a small spot on the outside of the passenger door bottom. I asked a body shop about fixing it and they said that in the spots it is in i should just price replacement doors at a junkyard that are...
  10. ...Like a rusty old baby carriage underneath..

    Maintenance and Service, that's the ony way I can describe the sound coming from the underneath the rear of my 2005 CRV 4WD. I've done lots of searching and all I can come up with here is the issues with the diff. I'm sure it's not that. I've been underneath and can't seem to find anything. I even had my...
  11. Disc Brakes Rusty problem

    Problems & Issues
    I don't know if this is a 'problem' or not. My CR-V usually stays outside. Yesterday it rained during the day. I did not drive it at all. When I went out this morning to leave, I noticed that all four disc brakes were rusty (light brown). When I was backing up and for a little while longer...
  12. Rusty air box bolts

    Maintenance and Service
    Removing the bolts on the air box to change the filter element should be a 10 minute job but became an hour+ because the bolts were rusty and crusty. The bolts have an 8mm head but the rust reduced some to 7mm or less. Is anyone else experiencing this difficulty? Anyone got a solution?
  13. Rusty tailgate on '07 cr-v

    Problems & Issues
    I've just noticed the exact same thing on my March '07 CR-V EX-L, which has less than 40000 Km on it. (24000 miles) Rust is bubbling through the paint on the left hand side of the tailgate just under the chrome trim above the licence plate. GRRRRR!!!! I called the dealer & they seem to be aware...
