  2. Struts, tie rod ends, sway bar links/bushings, ball joints at same time?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    My 2007 CRV AWD is riding a little rough these days with 150k miles. Ride is bouncy, chirps some on turns, clunk when turning wheel all the way to left. I was thinking of doing all the stuff in the thread title at the same time, then get an alignment at the shop. Any reason not to do all this...
  3. Ok to just replace front struts - or should back ones be done at same time?

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    This is for a 2004 Honda CR-V, with about 115,000 miles on it... My mechanic says I need new upper strut front mounts. He says they're about $90 each, and I'm looking at about $500 with labor. I think this is too much - and other work I've had done seems to be on the high side (ie, too...
  4. Is it time to throw in the towel?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    This isn't intended to be an ad, but I have to ask for some input here. I've owned our '97 since new, picking it up mid August of 1997 from the only dealer in four states who had a red one in stock. This was back when the CR-V was first introduced to the US, and our local dealers had a 12 week...

    Hello good day to you folks. My name is Garrett I'm the proud owner of a 98 CR-V that I got for free because my brother in Christ was going back to prison to serve a life sentence. Blessings. This has kept me out of the rain for the past month. I've gone on several spontaneous road trips and now...
  6. Honda recall, fortunately not us this time

    Other Cars, Trucks & Bikes
    TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) — Honda says it is recalling 437,000 vehicles in the U.S. to fix a fuel-pump issue. The recall covers model-year 2016-2018 Acura MDXs, 2015-2019 Acura TLX V6s and 2015-2017 Honda Accord V6s. The automaker says the vehicles’ software needs to be updated, and in some cases...

    Greetings & Introductions
    I just bought my first Honda. It's a used 2001 CRV, 4 wheel drive with a 5-speed manual trans. I'm sure I'll be using this site to get answers to my repair questions. Thanks.
  8. First time Honda owner

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello everyone! I’ve recently purchased my 2019 Honda CR-V EX-L. This is my first Honda ownership. I’ve own nothing but GM trucks before this CR-V, so it was a leap of faith. I’m quite excited about this ownership since I’ve heard nothing but praise from other CR-V owners who have owned them...

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello all, Just joined this forum and have a new 2019 CR-V EX-L 2WD! First time with a CR-V and I am loving it! Second time with a Honda. My first Honda was my very first car...a 1981 Honda Civic I bought off my brother's pot head friend. It had high mileage, no A/C :sweat:, a hole where the...
  10. Time needed to have gas evaporate from oil

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I am not a mechanic. I really do not understand why gas gets in the oil. From what I have read on this site, temperature of climate and the engine in the CRV seem to be the reason for gas getting into and staying in the oil. If the engine is designed to rid the gas from the oil by means of...
  11. Long time Honda, first time CRV

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hey guys, posting up here to start an intro thread. I'm looking to get into a 1.5 gen CRV. I've been a parts guy at a Honda dealership for the past 6 years or so, and have driven a few TLs and older Civics, but my heart has mainly been with the Toyota 4runner. I've had two 3rd gens and a 4th...
  12. Is it time to part ways with the CR-V and Honda?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I’ve had a horrible experience with my ’17 CR-V and want some thoughts on if I should just say goodbye to the vehicle and Honda. If this post sounds like I’m jaded, it’s because I am. I bought it new in June of 2017 because I wanted to know the service history of the vehicle and I could keep...

  14. 2nd CRV, first time here

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello all! I've been a long time lurker, but this is my first post here. Just bought an '18 EX-L in blue with grey interior. It's our 2nd CRV in 19 years. We bought our first blue EX new in '99. It had 17 miles on it when we picked it up, and just recently turned 230,000. We got our '18 with 23...
  15. No Time Displayed on Tracks?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I just bought a 2015 EX and really love it. What I can’t figure out is why time isn’t displayed when I’m playing a podcast from my smartphone. Is there a setting I need to turn on? I got very used to this on my Rav 4 and figured this was a pretty basic feature.
  16. It's my time to go...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Folks, For various reasons I'm out as a CRV owner as of 4 pm today. One thing of note I thought you may be interested in is there was no issue getting over KBB value for my EX in the "excellent" category. It's been a very interesting ride on this forum. I've been members of many over the years...
  17. New first time Honda owner 🙂

    Greetings & Introductions
    Just traded my 1999 Plymouth Prowler for an ‘18 CR-V LX edition. Quite the change from my old car (even though it was just my weekend vehicle), eh?
  18. Check engine light and stability light came on same time

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all new to the forum. Looking for a little insight if possible. I purchased my 2011 cr v about a year ago with about 85k on it. No issues been a great commuter vehicle. Then yesterday driving on the Highway and got into the throttle a bit and suddenly out of nowhere sputter and stall. Would...
  19. 2017 ventilation/heat in winter time

    Problems & Issues
    being in the northern US, the interior my vehicle is often below 32 degrees when I start it. I like to have cool air blowing thru the ventilation system.. However, since the '17 Cr-v uses a cabin thermostat instead of "in the ventilation system" thermostat, if I set temperature at 60, it will...
  20. First time owner: 2001 SE w/ 220k (Illinois)

    Greetings & Introductions
    Greetings! I just bought a 2001 CRV SE with 220k miles. It's going to be my daily driver—looking forward to getting it baselined and learning a little more about the car. My other ride is a modded '99 Land Cruiser, so I'm planning to do a lot of the work myself. I got a very good price. A few...
