    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hello Fellow CRV Neighbors, Have you all seen this video of a man driving his CRV here in the US (Tulsa, OK) and hitting 980,000 miles? This is mind blowing to say the least. These CRV's are amazing. I know they are known for longevity but this is beyond anything. No engine or transmission...

    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...

  10. Engine Coolant how strong is strong enough?

    Maintenance and Service
    Looked at a jug of the 50/50 premix coolant at a Honda dealer recently. Says that it's good for down to -34. I remember when most all owner's manuals said to use a stronger mix in the upper tier states and in Canada. As I now live in Florida, I know there's little chance I'll have to worry...

    Media News & Reviews
    Demand for Honda's light trucks, like the CR-V, Pilot and Ridgeline, with the company posting a 33% sales increase for light trucks compared to 2009. High demand and lower inventory levels mean that Honda has been able to stave off the barrage of incentives that rival Toyota has been promoting...
