  1. What is this windshield thing?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    We had our windshield replaced, and they left this thing dangling. What is it for?
  2. What one thing was it that sealed the Deal on buying your Gen 5 CR-V?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Looking at the exterior I was mildly impressed, after all it looked almost exactly like my Gen4 Rav4. When I saw the interior and heard the MPG I was pretty much sold on the vehicle. It was such a huge step up from the RAV4 that I fell in love right away. That lasted for about 3 minutes and...
  3. What ONE thing would you change?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    What ONE thing would you change on your CR-V? Please, I am not referring to any issue like some owners are having with regards to heat or oil, etc. After owning mine for 8+ months and ~10,000 one thing would be: (and it seems to be a very minor thing) The location of the gas door...
  4. Indecision is a terrible thing

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I’m replacing a 2002 Odyssey that has served us well for 225,000 miles. I’m looking for someing that feels a little more like a car but it still needs to schlepp stuff to the kids’ dorms. My three finalists are: New or nearly New Outback. I need AWD and I’ve always liked them. 2-3 year old...
  5. Did a thing today

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Nothing major. Ordered aFe Power 31-10267 air filter for the 18 1.5L. Although AFE doesn’t have one that fits but the 17 Civic SI with the same engine has the same pn for both stock air filters. I’ve had AFE prodrys in the past.
  6. Wierdest thing happening to my 03 CRV

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    It cranks will start for a second then die. I add gas and the battery dies from trying to excessively start it.. My husband left the air filter off for a long time not sure what he was thinking but it will eventually start.. Replaced starter less than yr ago. Its not alternator bc power isnt the...
  7. Rear door clippy thing

    Problems & Issues
    Does any one actually have one of these to hold the back door open? (2006). It would be useful as we have to load a wheelchair in and out, but despite the manual saying its in the tool kit, it's not.
  8. What IS this thing in the rear cargo area?!?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Help a newbie out (owned my CRV for a week).... What is this vent looking thing in the back of the 2008 CRV cargo area just above the 12V outlet? I've tried every setting on the climate control and don't feel any air coming through... or maybe I feel the SLIGHTEST bit of breeze? I can't tell if...
  9. Thing you wished you knew

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    So we just got our white/black exl fwd this Sunday. I was wondering if some of you that have had your for a while could share some of the thinks you wish you knew earlier. Maybe it's a radio setting or some other features you didn't know it could do. I have only driven it once as this is my...
  10. What's this grill thing above the dashboard

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Please see attached photo. I'm curious about the Square of grill thingy just on top of the air Cond vent. Is this the access to the dashboard? What other purpose does it serve?
  11. What do we call thing....

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    ....a car or a truck. I called it a truck the other day when my son asked where the iPod was ("it's in the truck".) He responded "TRUCK?!?!?!?!". I do feel kind of awkward calling it a truck but it's definitely more substantial than a car. Sorry for the random thought just got to wondering.
  12. The Best Thing About My New CR-V...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    for me at least, is ZERO buyer's remorse. That speaks volumes when you make such an important purchase.
  13. Boy, is this thing quiet!

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I just recently traded in my 2008 CR-V LX for a 2016 CR-V EX-L. The old CR-V had a distinctive engine sound that I referred to the "Honda hum" that was always just there when I drove. In the new one, I don't hear much of anything, including the hum. What changed?
  14. What's this thing hanging down?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Can anyone tell me what this piece of plastic is that's hanging down next to the right rear wheel of my wife's 2007 Honda CRV? There's one just inside the left rear wheel as well, but it appears to be properly attached. Trying to figure out if the car is safe for driving so we can go get it...
  15. What Stuff (AC Compressor) to Change While I have this thing Apart?

    Problems & Issues
    Just bought a 2008 with 105,000 miles. Bought it with the assumption that I will be doing several maintenance tasks - plugs, serpentine belt, belt tensioner, thermostat, water pump, all fluids, all filters. My question is this - what other parts under the hood should I replace while I have...
  16. what the heck is this thing?!

    I've seen these on a few CRV's. Never in person but just online. What the heck are they?
  17. What is this orange thing in the CR-V trunk?

    I see this orange thing (on the right) in some CR-V's. Does anyone know what it is?
  18. Weird thing happening to brake lights

    Problems & Issues
    Brake lights not working right. When just hitting brake, all 3 lights come on. When turning lights on the 2 side brake lights go off when the pedal is depressed?? Put in 2 new bulb, same thing happens. Whats up??/
  19. What's this thing under my driver's seat?

    Problems & Issues
    I'm test fitting an aftermarket subwoofer to install under the driver's seat of my '05 CR-V. The subwoofer would fit sideways under the seat if it weren't for this little box in the back outer edge that's attached to the rails. It has a little tab that allows the cover to swing down. I was...
  20. favorite thing

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    hello people; I have not used my 13 V as my DD yet but I really like the heated seat. I've never had a car with one but that feature might be my fav thing in my V so far. IBBY
