  1. Someone on here turned me on to the Hyundai Sante Fe - Thanks

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    This is not intended to bash the CR-V. But I've been shopping for a CUV for a while, and somehow overlooked the Hyundai Sante Fe. Based on specs alone, I would definitely choose the CR-V - its only slightly smaller (cargo area actually larger) and much better gas mileage. While trying to decide...
  2. 2006 CR-V Oil turned to Sludge and VVT Solenoid replaced- No Idea Why?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 Honda CR-V with 101,000 miles on it. I had recently purchased it from a dealer who got it from out of state (auction I assume). On the dealer's repair sheet prior to purchasing it states the dealer had replaced the timing chain. At about 99,000 miles I changed the oil and put in...

    The A/C system is not running optimally for my Honda CR-V 2008, here are the symptoms: The temperature measured at the center vent can go sub 40F if the car is running, highway or local, but once stopped or idled, the temperature rises up.

  5. 03 CR-V loses power when key turned off?

    2002-2004 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 2)
    Hey guys, new member and just got a 2003 CR-V. It seems to have a strange problem where every time the key is turned off, various things lose the constant 12v power they should have. These include the cluster, radio, and power locks. So every time the car is restarted, the cluster buzzes to...
  6. Grinding when steering wheel turned to full stop

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Had my winter tires changed over the weekend. I instantly noticed a lot more road noise. I thought I would give it some time until I noticed another new (bad) behaviour. When the steering wheel is turned to all the way until it hits the stop (left or right), upon acceleration there's a low...
  7. Some Pictures/Attachments get turned upside down.

    Community Help
    Why is it that some pictures, when attached, get inverted? I've even tried starting over, making my original picture (on my computer) upside down so that if the forum flipped it it would be correct. Either way the picture ended up upside down. Is there anyway to stop this weirdness?
  8. Can the Touch Screen be turned off?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Probably a stupid question these days, but can the touch screen be turned off? I find it distracting when not in use, particularly at night. Thanks for comments D
  9. How many have turned off the LKAS?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Personally I find this the most annoying feature I've ever had on a vehicle. I'm trying to find a value for it that has escaped me.
  10. 2016 CRV AWD steering wheel not smooth when turned wide angle?

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Hi, I wonder if this is normal. So when I turn my steering wheel real wide, say, backing out from a spot then turning all the way opposite to leave parking lot, then I can feel that there's "something" in the way when turning the steering wheel, to be exact, it felt a few gears was being turned...
  11. Tables have turned

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Is it just me or does anyone else miss the small table that was part of the 1st and 2nd gen CR-V? Loved to use it when I went tailgating, it was just so handy. Also allowed you to put heavier stuff in the cargo area w/o worry of caving in the thin cover. Oh well, just a thought. 2017 Molten...

  15. Clunk/thunk noise when ac turned on

    Maintenance and Service
    Didn't find anything on this so I figure I start a thread. This is on a 2015 CRV with under 2500 miles on it. Today is the warmest day since owning the CRV and when I started it this afternoon I immediately turned on the ac and heard a clunk/thunk noise before the ac kicked in. I've heard...
  16. Can DTR lights be turned off?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I've had several occasions lately when I needed to let my 2013 LX idle at night facing other occupied vehicles. It would have been courteous to have been able to turn off the DTR but there doesn't seem to be a way. Anybody know a way?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi everyone, When I turn the fan on (level two or higher) while my temperature is set to warmest, I notice a second or two (or three) of rattling/vibrating noise around the dash. This doesn't seem to happen if the temperature dial is set to cold. What could be causing this? Is it normal on...
