  1. AWD Touring - in soft sand - Keeping VSA on?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hey Gang, We drive in soft sand on our South Texas beaches. AWD has never let me down but wondered if I should turn off "Vehicle Stability Assist" VSA? If you're in South Texas every few weeks there is a beach cleanup project...
  2. How often do you need to reset (soft) the head-unit?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I've had my car for 19 days and already have had to reset (by holding down the volume button for a few seconds) it twice. The first time, it would show me some web-page looking screen when I went to the audio section from the home screen. It didn't clear up on a power down/up. Only cleared when...
  3. Soft Cover under the car

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi folks, I am comparing the soft cover under the car of CRV 2017 Touring FWD vs AWD. The CRV 2017 Touring FWD that I saw in the dealer has 3 parts: left, middle and right cover (see photos: ). However, my CRV 2017 Touring AWD only have 2 parts...
  4. clutch pedal way too soft / low gears progressively difficult to engage

    Problems & Issues
    Howdy, Couple days ago I thought the change on my manual 2000 CR-V (in the UK) was getting a bit notchy. Tonight I struggled to engage 1st - gave up, notched 2nd (just), and managed to get home in 2nd and 3rd. The clutch pedal is light all the way to the floor. It's dark tonight, but in...

    Hello, I recently acquired a '06 LX 4wd, which has an tailgate-mounted fullsize spare. They spare is covered by a vinyl Honda cover which is secured by two zippers on the lower half of the cover. The previous owner never moved those zippers and the zippers slides were corroded to the point of...

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hey all, I am in the process of purchasing a Cypress Pearl Green '99 CR-V EX AWD. This will be the first car I have owned and the first Honda I have ever drived, which is shocking as I was previously a valet but never had one come through.

  7. 07 CRV - Soft Whirring noise above 2k rpm. Valves, PS Pump??

    Maintenance and Service
    I just got an 07 CRV and it's making a soft whirring noise after 2000rpms. Sounds like it could be valves, but I saw some people say it could be a power steering noise. The sound goes away at idle, but becomes prominent under load and in higher rpms. The car has new 5W-20 Mobil 1 oil and new...
  8. Make Offer: 1998 Picnic Table And Soft Spare Tire Cover.

    Trading Post
    BOTH GONE THANKS. We bought a 1998 CR-V 6 years ago and it has the original picnic table and the original soft spare tire cover. The original owner upgraded to the hard spare tire cover and this soft one was never used. The picnic table looks like it's never been used. Make an offer and I'll...
  9. soft brake pedal on '99 2wd CR-V

    Problems & Issues
    Dutifully replaced front brake pads, and in process got stupid and loosened the wrong 14mm bolt thereby letting air into the caliper. Have bled all four wheels but still have very soft brake pedal when engine in running (but it feels pretty firm with engine OFF). What do I do now? Thanks! Jon

  12. Soft Noise from Rear during Idle

    Problems & Issues
    I've had my 2010 CR-V for 3 months now and I'm just noticing a strange noise coming from the right rear. I'm not sure if it's always been there and I'm now just noticing it, or if it's something new. At first I thought it was some outside wind noise, but after some testing, it sure sounds like...
  13. Soft Brake feel

    Problems & Issues
    My CR-V has 46k on it I bought it used with 42k and one of the things I loved about it was the strong brakes. More specifically I liked the pedal modulation ad immediacy. The past couple days driving around my brakes have felt odd I have to push the pedal halfway down to get some brake bite...

  15. Lights On Reminder Too Soft

    Problems & Issues
    I keep forgetting to turn off my CR-V's headlamps. When I turn off the ignition, the warning beeps are not loud enough. They just aren't loud enough for me to hear them, so I end up forgetting to turn them off. Anyone else notice this? Is there any way service can adjust the volume to make...
