  1. Early thoughts on CR-V Hybrid

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    There doesn't seem to be much here on the hybrid (I guess because it's not available in the USA yet) so I thought I'd post some notes and thoughts that might help anyone considering one in the future. It's a bit long, so TL;DR - we really like and it's working well. Very minor criticisms. Bit...

    Brand new 2018 CRV LX with exactly 15 miles on the clock. Parked on the driveway Friday night and woke up to about 2" of snow Saturday AM. Started it to clear snow off vehicle while I shoveled and moved it to finish the job. Afterwards I notice about 2 foot wide 6 feet long rainbow pattern on...
  5. CB Radio and antenna thoughts

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I haven't had a CB since the 70's trucker craze. That said they are useful since truckers keep each other appraised of road conditions and detours in case of jams. We travel a lot and it would be nice to avoid some of the jams we run into. So I started looking into radios and it seems the...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Got my 2018 touring about a week ago. Just a few observations. Likes: - The ride is smooth and mostly quiet (except when really accelerating) - Love the interior (mostly, see below) - Adaptive cruise control and the brake hold button are awesome - Infotainment is pretty good. I like how it...
  8. Civic vs Accord: Deciding on a commuter car, thoughts?

    Other Cars, Trucks and Bikes
    Hi all, Looking to get a DD to deal with Dallas rush-hour commute (~1 hour 1-way) and looking specifically for all-speed cruise control with the ability to resume from a full-stop, useful for the commute. I think I've finalized it down to a Civic EX-T (with the 1.5L Turbo with Honda Sensing) &...

  11. Touring LED Headlights - Xpel 3M Headlight Film - Thoughts....

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I'm interested in protecting the LED headlights with the 3M film, but I'm not sure if the 2017 LED Headlights come with any UV protection or anything else that might cause an issue with delamination when removing the film down the road. I've read when the manufacturer has applied any UV...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    We waited 2.5 weeks for AWD EX-L white diamond exterior with black leather interior in NJ.. most in stock are Ivory interiors (nice, but too light for us) I've posted here a few times over past month & read many of the major threads. Amazed on some of the nit-picking and discussions over minor...
  13. 2006 CR-V K24A2 swap? Thoughts??

    Under The Hood / Performance
    Been tossing around the idea of a motor swap in the '06 4WD V. The K24A2 seems like a good candidate for a little more power. So really just looking for thoughts and suggestions here. If doing a swap turns out to be a PITA, I would rather spend the energy putting one of the bolt on...

    I have bought my 2016 CRV EX AWD about a month & half ago. Odo just crossed 1000 miles and the average MPG is around 23 (has been consistent around that mark for last 800+ miles). 60-65% of the miles are in city traffic. I am generally a conservative driver - no sudden accelerations and hard...
  16. Thoughts on XM radio from a first time user

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    So my three month trial is coming to an end soon and I'm on the fence. For long trip, I love it. Especially if say there is springsteen concert playing. When using the GPS, I prefer not to use it. I haven't used normal radio at all.....and my iphone stored music much at all. If there are...
  17. 2012 CR-V Sound Setting Thoughts?

    Mobile Electronics
    Hello How do you guys have your sound settings on your CR-V's? I would like to know how I can change it to get the right bass on Sirius radio and FM. Currently I have Bass +3 and Treble -3 with the Subwoofer on high. How should I change it to get the FM to sound less terrible and to keep the...

    I have a 2016 Honda CR-V Touring CVT with OEM roof rails and crossbars. I currently have a Thule Excursion TT 667TT. When I relocated last Summer I thought wow, I've had roof boxes that didn't cause as much sway as this one. I'm planning on taking a weekend trip to the Yosemite area this...
