  1. 2019 EXL, Reverse warning sound

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Is there a setting to give an alert when in reverse and near a structure? I have the rear camera, but no alert sound when I get close to something.
  2. Weight Rear Tow Hook

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    Hello community, Question about how much weight the tow hook under the rear bumper can hold? I was thinking of using it to pull another vehicle that doesn't move to another area of my parking area. The vehicle trying to move is a 96 geo metro electric car conversion. It has Lead Acid Batteries...

  4. 2018 Touring AWD driver safety aids

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    2 months and 2500 miles in my new CR-V Touring AWD. Very surprised that whenever I drive in very heavy rain or ice/snow, the dash tells me that the driver safety aids (lane departure, collision avoidance) have been turned off because the radar is blocked. So.... Honda engineers designed a system...

    I purchased a brand new 2018 CRV EX in December. As of the date of this post it only has 520 miles. - First issue was brake pedal not compressing at start up, causing the engine not to start when I pushed the start button. This happens in the morning. - The next issue is electrical...
  6. Compact SUV vs. midsize sedan safety

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    My wife and I currently have two CR-Vs ('18 and '16), but I am seriously considering an Accord when the lease on the '16 is up in a few months. However, the one thing that is giving me pause about going back to a sedan is the IIHS data showing fewer fatalities in SUVs than sedans (for example...
  7. '06 CRV - Is there a safety shut off after a rear end collision?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hey Gang, I have been trying to keep my windshield ding/crack free. Paying for glass dings every few weeks. Now a small pebble did crazy damage. When speaking with a local glass man he said they have replaced many updated Honda CRV's 2017/2018. He suggest for me to report this issue to get a...
  9. Possible to disable screen "safety" features?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    My wife would like to enter travel data into our 2017 CRV, but of course this is not allowed when we are moving. Is there any way to disable this useless safety feature since my wife is not driving the car?
  10. Safe!!

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I have a 2013 2wd CRV. We were driving about 70 on the freeway and somebody decided to cut into our lane suddenly. I panic braked; the traction control came on and we decelerated so hard I couldn’t believe it. No tire squeal, no sliding, no side to side play on the wheel. Way to go Honda! Any...
  11. Steering problem serious with low speed wobble

    Problems & Issues
    We have an 05 with about 130K on it. The steering wheel has recently begun to wobble at low speeds around 20MPH and then goes away as speed increases. More seriously though is the car's pulling on acceleration. When driving in the Arkansas mountains around the bends at reasonable speeds, the...

  15. Driving safety warning beeps inaudible with music on? Lock doors w/ engine on?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Two things I'm strongly missing from my FCA vehicles of past: 1. The autonomous emergency braking & forward collision warning system would mute music and blare a very obvious warning alarm at you to ENSURE it got your attention. Blind spot monitoring would dramatically lower music volume and...
