  14. Driving safety warning beeps inaudible with music on? Lock doors w/ engine on?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Two things I'm strongly missing from my FCA vehicles of past: 1. The autonomous emergency braking & forward collision warning system would mute music and blare a very obvious warning alarm at you to ENSURE it got your attention. Blind spot monitoring would dramatically lower music volume and...
  15. Gen III - fixing saggy rear end w/ OME springs

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    As with most CR-V's I've seen, the "saggy butt syndrome" seems to affect them all. My wife's CR-V is no exception even at 25k miles and being 3 years old when we bought it. Wife doesn't seem to notice, care or mind that it sags, but it annoys me. Anywho.... bought some OME 2536 rear springs...

  18. Anything new w/ Ipod use?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Haven't used my Ipod since it locked up my display on CR-V and got tired of the annoying pops. I've been using a jump drive and it does ok but I really think the interface of the Ipod is better. Much easier to find songs and navigate thru. Anyone seen any software updates or other info that...

Although I'm sure you can add the roof rails to any trim CRV, I'm just...
