  2. Rear Window Spots

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I've been noticing these spots on my rear-window. I'm not sure what to make of it, they look like the spots you see on a poor window tinting job or the spots on our iPhone screen when you put on a screen protector and there are air bubbles or dust under it. I've cleaned the window many times...

  4. 2011 CR-V Undercarriage Minor Rust Spots

    Problems & Issues
    Yesterday I did a rear differential fluid change on my 2011 CRV SE AWD (60,000 miles) and noticed some very minor rust/corrosion spots on some parts of the frame. It's only had one owner before me (my parents--who have since purchased a brand new 2016 CRV SE) and was generally well maintained...

    Last week I purchased a 2015 CRV Touring model with black leather seats. i just noticed yesterday that there are a few white-looking spots on the leather seats. I have only had the car a week and it has not been wet or anything. I keep it in the garage in evenings but it is outside in the...
  6. 2015 CR-V 3 month old with rust spots?

    Problems & Issues
    Took home a brand new 2015 CR-V not 3 months ago and my wife noticed a rust spot on the passenger side door (not the exterior side but just above the rubber linings). Both of us were quite surprised to see this. I presume I should get this looked at by our dealership and should be fixed...
  7. Spots on seats

    I just bought a 2010 CR-V LX the seat material is in good shape but has some spots (maybe from a pet cat?) what is the best way to clean the seat material? What cleaner should I use?

  9. Instrument Cluster Water Spots

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2011 CRV and recently discovered that there are several water spot marks on the INSIDE of the clear plastic window of the instrument gauge cluster. They are not obvious, but now that I know they are there it really drives me crazy! They are more obvious at night when the lights are on...
  10. 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...

    I was cleaning the inside of my 2012 CR-V this week and I noticed spots on the i-MID screen. Kinda looks like water spots. I tried cleaning the screen with Invisible Glass but the spots remain. Does anyone else have this issue and if so how do I get rid of the spots?
  12. Removing water spots from roof rails and side view mirrors

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I struggle with water spots on my black roof rails and side view mirrors (in other words, the painted hard plastic items of the exterior). I have used a couple of different paint cleaners but have not been satisfied with the results. I put out a query on...
  13. Blind spots?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I am thinking of purchasing a 2011 Honda CRV. I have test-driven it and am worried about blind spots (have never owned anything larger than a sedan). I have noticed that I have trouble seeing over my left shoulder out the rear passenger window. Maybe it will just take some adjustment, but I...
  14. Remove hard water spots in 10 seconds with vinegar

    I read a post last night about removing hard water spots from the V. It was a long thread with posts on clay bars, polishes, waxes, water filtetration, etc... Actually I love using all of those things, but thought they were all overkill for hardwater stains. Also, clay bars, polishes, and...
  15. Water spots on the windows

    I washed the car with a carwash soap (mr. clean carwash gun) and on one side of the car the sun came out and heated the windows and now I have these water spots on the window that I can’t get off. Can someone recommend a cleanser or something, I tried windex and it didn’t work someone mentioned...
  16. 2008 CRV Rust Spots (Not covered by TSB).

    Problems & Issues
    I live in Omaha, NE. I noticed 15 to 20 very small rust spots and rust bubbles on my '08 Royal Blue Pearl CRV this last January. They are only on the rear hatchback. There are no other spots on any other areas of the car. The few road gravel dings on the front hood show NO rust even though...

  19. Steering wheel wear spots....

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    My steering wheel on my 04 V is wearing at about the 11-12 o'clock position where I habitually palm the wheel. The vynal finish is coming off in about a 3-4 inch wide patch that is annoyingly always in my field of vision. I just put an OEM leather wheelcover on from Handa accessories knowing...

    Paint peeling in 2 spots under front hood. No way did a rock hitting these spots while driving cause this. Will contact Honda tomorrow. What do you think? 2007 EX-L w/ Nav 4wd
