  2. 2017 CRV EX - vehicle moves while in "park" or engine off

    Problems & Issues
    I've been having an issue with my 2017 CRV EX where when I put the car in park, turn off the car, and take my foot off the break, the car moves a little bit. It's not a lot, but just enough that I'd tap the car in front of (if I had been in drive) or in back of me (if I had been in reverse) if...

  4. Whats the longest you have owned a New Vehicle before getting it scratched or dented?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I was almost going to get through my first year without a scratch then the darn Foam gun kicked off the nozzle clip while washing her and went flying into the hood. Just as luck would have it the only metal part on the whole thing hit the bonnet first and left a slight scratch. It's not...

    If the curb weight of a Gen 5 EXL fwd is say 3400 lbs and the gross weight is say 4700 lbs, why is the total load weight 850 lbs? Seems like there is 450 lbs unaccounted
  7. Recommendations for Vehicle Service Contracts

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello from North Carolina. I just bought a 2018 first Honda. The dealer tried to sell me a comprehensive vehicle service contract from Zurich American Ins. Co. Online reviews aren't great and CR doesn't recommend them at all. However, I usually keep a vehicle for 8-9 years...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Is it standard practice for Honda dealers to charge a dignostic for a vehicle that is under full factory warranty? I have never experienced this with my Toyota or Nissan.
  9. Time for an awd vehicle

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V

  10. How would I know if there is a firmware update available for my vehicle?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I've seen mentioned in a number of posts here in the forum that firmware was updated in their vehicles. How would I know whether one is available for my car (Honda CR-V 2018 LX), particularly the entertainment system? Follow up question. Is this something I can update via the USB port or only...

  12. Vehicle Settings - Driver 1 or Driver 2

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I see many folks posting about features that don't seem to be working in their CR-V. It's possible that the settings are not set properly. I thought this thread might be a good place to explain and show a couple of pictures for general help. This also explains how you get the ability to set...
  13. General Question about new vehicle

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Why would a dealer list his new 2017 stock as "Certified" and not new, pulling off the original dealer sticker and placing his own list on the window? I am looking at a new vehicle with only 10 miles on it and it is lists as Certified. The dealer tells me it is brand new and they list it as...
  14. 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.
  15. Vehicle Maintenance Tracker

    Maintenance and Service
    Looking to keep track of the maintenance on our 3 CRV's, can't seem to find the best software/sites out there (free is ideal :nod:). Been scanning the invoices and such into the computer and tracking in Excel, but wondering if there isn't something better out there that might track the model...

  18. vehicle settings - diff for each remote?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I've only owned our new 2018 Touring model for a couple of weeks and still so much to figure out. One thing in particular are the two smart remotes. Are vehicle settings (driver seat position, door lock/unlock settings, Honda Sensing, etc.) per remote? I just got all the settings the way I...
  19. Low Pressure Fuel Pump noise when vehicle is off (not running)

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    We just purchased a 2017 CR-V Touring. The last couple days at a time between 6pm and 7pm, a noise is generated from the low pressure fuel pump at the fuel tank. It is a humming noise and runs for about 1/2 hour. I know it is the fuel pump because when I put my hand on it, the tone of the...
  20. Driver Information Interface goes blank after I stop vehicle.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    How can I keep the last Driver Information Interface (DII) used? When I start the car the DII is blank. I can get the display back by pressing the "i" button on the steering wheel. However, it didn't do this when I first got the vehicle. The last display stayed on.
