  1. 2019 CRV Touring - taking delivery

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi all, I am taking delivery today of my 2019 Touring. Is there anything I should look out for on the car prior to taking delivery?
  2. Hello - ExFN2 taking on the CR-V!

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hi folks, I've just traded in my beloved Civic Type R GT for a 67 plate CR-V 1.6 DTEC 160, so moving over to the new owners forums. Maybe I'll get less grief from the Mrs now about the potholes and cornering... :beb: Stu
  3. '08 2.2 CDTi Ex Shudder when taking foot off accelerator 99k miles

    Problems & Issues
    We have a 2008 2.2 CDti Ex model with 99,000 miles on clock. FHSH. In the last couple of months we have noticed the engine "cough" (similar noise to engine revving to low) when taking foot off accelerator. This seems to be happening more often. Any ideas what we could look at before the...
  4. Taking a higher mileage vehicle to high elevations?

    Maintenance and Service
    Is there anything special I should do maintenance wise before taking my car to higher elevation for a while? Like 5K to 10K feet? 2006 with 150K. I know the older carborated vehicles required some adjustments.
  5. Car Play Butting In / Taking Over

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I've got kind of the opposite problem that people have reported with Car Play dropping. In our CRV, if we're listening to Sirius, and then my wife plugs in her phone, say to just charge it, it automatically switches the music source to Car Play. If we switch back to Sirius, it will hold that...
  6. Passenger side Rear Door taking on water inside panel.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Attached are the photos of the issue. This is the 3rd time I have spotted it. It is over 90 degrees today like each of the other sides with high humidity. Unlike the other days, it did rain about 4 hours prior. There is no water anywhere else on/in the car. I am trying to figure out the...
  7. Taking the V to Enjoy Some Long Awaited Good Weather in Newfoundland!

    Biking, Camping, Hiking, & Kayaking
    Greetings fellow members. So this past weekend here in Newfoundland was our first long holiday weekend and unofficial start of the summer. As we all call it the 24th of May. The family and I definitely got away, from the city that is. We headed out to visit some family in the Clarenville area...
  8. Anyone had issues taking a Canadian build CR-V for warranty work in the US?

    Problems & Issues
    Here is whats going on. I have a 2014 CR-V EX that I purchased just under a year ago from a dealer (non Honda dealer) that they received as a trade in. The CEL came on a few weeks ago P2422 blocked EVAP system / EVAP purge valve stuck closed. Took it to the local Honda service center for...
  9. Taking the CRV off the paved road

    Off The Beaten Path
    My '13 CRV Touring AWD is mainly driven in the city but when its time to play up at the cabin I like to take her out back and go on some adventures. Here are a few pics I have taken on these drives.
  10. an experience on taking performance test by iOBD2

    Problems & Issues
    iOBD2 is an app for your car. It makes your iPhone or iPad into a car diagnostic tool to read your car engine data. The first impression iOBD2 gives me is that it is so small but with powerful function. Now plug the iOBD2 into the OBD connector on the car. Remember to check whether it is...
  11. 1st gen - Engine dies and starts when taking off - not IG switch recall related

    Problems & Issues
    Hey folks, So I've been taking care of my '00 Crv on the mechanical side, redid the F&R suspension/direction over the past 2 years, belts/valves were done 20 000km ago, fluids are fluidic... a very pleasant drive in a 12 y/o car. Then 2 weeks ago, this problem shows up... I'm at a stop sign or...
  12. Has anyone heard of Honda taking special orders?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I know this it is highly unlikely in this day and age of mass production and limited choices but I'm wondering if anyone has ever been able to special order a color combination from Honda. I'd like to have a 2012 CRV EX in white with black interior. I noticed that you can get it that way in...

  14. taking time to warm up

    Problems & Issues
    My 98 crv just takes to much time to warm up. The car runs great. The temperature gauge slowly reaches it mark ( a little lower than halfway) like a turtle.
  15. Taking Care Of the Interior

    Just got a new 2011 Honda CR-V. What is the best way to take care of the interior? I figure it did not make sense to pay the car dealership $500 for the treatment. I read somewhere that they probably use Simoniz. I am not sure if this is true. The upholstery is gray. Has anyone used Simoniz...
  16. Taking your CRV out of vehicle storage after one year

    Maintenance and Service
    What steps do you take when you are taking your CRV out of the vehicle storage after one year? I will be coming back from deployment this fall after one year. It's been sitting there under a shed in some govn't wherehouse with probably hardly any maintence and I doubt the engine was started at...
  17. Someone was taking pictures of my V!

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    So I went to one of my friend's BMW club meets with my V. I talked with a few people here and there and then saw this guy taking pictures of my V with his camera phone. Aside from people poking fun/joking with me due to my Honda, I found it weird this guy was actually taking photos of my car...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Alright i have believe i have figured out how to get the dash in my 00-V blue, however the problem lies in talking the dash apart. Has anyone ever had to do this in the Gen 1? Im looking at replacing the lights in there with blue LED's but i have no idea where to start. :confused: Any input...
