    Recently we brought some bags of mulch home in our CR-V and noted that one bag had a hole and some mulch was scattered around the load area. About a week later we noted a bad and persistent smell. We looked everywhere in the car but found nothing so we vacuumed out the mulch and the rest of the...

    Hello all, Well today when I started my 2017 EX with 20k miles the air coming out of the vents smelled fishy. I rolled down the windows and after a few minutes I rolled them back up and the smell was gone. I happened again the nest time I started it. So this is the first time I have smelled...

    New 2019 ex owner. 500 miles and have antifreeze smell coming from vents. I used to be a mechanic and know this is a potential heater core issue . Anyone else have this issue? I don’t have any fuel smell issue so far.

    I know there is several threads regarding gas in oil so I hope my question hasn’t been brought up. I have a 2018 AWD Touring, bought new in NC. I have been noticing extreme gas odor when the climate control is set to fresh air. The issue is more prevalent just after start. Have any of you...

    Adding this to lend my voice to the oil dilution discussion. I have a 2018 CRV (Indiana plant) that I purchased at the beginning of August. I live in SC, so definitely not in a cold climate. At around 2500 miles, I started detecting a fuel odor in my oil. I compared with the two other 4...

    PLEASE DON'T HIJACK THIS THREAD INTO ANOTHER DISCUSSION ABOUT THE OVERALL OIL DILUTION ISSUE - there are plenty of other threads discussing such. A poster in another thread asked a question that I think is relevant in light of all the concern about the oil dilution issue, and that question...

    Hello to all CRV owners, We got our 2018 EX-L AWD CRV a few days ago. It's always been parked inside the garage and we did not have any issues until tonight. My wife and I came back from dinner and we parked our CRV in garage as usual. We spent about 5 minutes playing with infotainment settings...

    Has anyone experienced a smell similar to that of burning plastic, outside the car, after driving for awhile? Honda claims its the plastic cover over the turbocharger. I'm trying to discover if this is a 1-off problem or if others have the same issue. I also want to discover if this is a...

    Hey there folks, I've found that I randomly get an odd eggy/fart smell when i really put my foot down in my new CR-V. I bought it two weeks ago and I'm wondering what it might be? Solution? My wife thought I was farting...seriously (but, that's fair, I guess). Thanks Matthew

    I bought a 2016 CRV 4 months ago and it has been fine until a few weeks ago. When using the A/C heating above 20 after about 30 mins there is an acrid burning smell and I have to turn down and open all windows to clear the smell. I am mostly doing motorway driving. Any ideas what could be...

    Not sure any one noticed this issue. The topless cap could not seal the fuel tank properly. Last week I was out of town and parked my CRV in my garage, the CRV was the only vehicle in the garage.The garage door kept closed for a week. When I went home and got into the garage, there's very strong...

    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone else is getting exhaust fumes inside their vehicle. It gets worse if the sunroof or windows are open. Only happens if I push the rams from 2k to about 5-6k. I haven't seen any posts about my issue.

    Yesterday on my way home from work, in 4pm traffic on US19 there was an accident that had traffic crawling for a few miles. Once i passed the small accident (one car did look kind of smooshed) i had a wide open freeway, except the car in front of me who continued to drive 20mph for WAY TO LONG...

    Hi, I'm considering to buy 2017 CR-V EX-L. Read that 2016 model have issues with gasoline smell. Hope new 2017 doesn't have that issue. Just asking owners to confirm.

    I bought a 2017 CRV EXL back in March, lately when I got out of the car after putting it in the garage, I notice a very strong sulfur smell. I have to leave the garage door open for a while to let the smell dissipate. My 2011 Accord EXL does not have that smell. Any owners notice this with...
