  1. Weight Rear Tow Hook

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hello community, Question about how much weight the tow hook under the rear bumper can hold? I was thinking of using it to pull another vehicle that doesn't move to another area of my parking area. The vehicle trying to move is a 96 geo metro electric car conversion. It has Lead Acid Batteries...
  2. 2015 Naked Roof, question about roof rack weight and roof capacity (Roof top tent)

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I was able to score a Root Top Tent at an incredible deal, but my roof is completely naked, no factory rails or crossbars. The tent weights roughly 110 pounds, I've found a couple roof racks that have a 165 capacity that will work on my CRV, but I'm curious if anyone has come across the static...
  3. Passenger side airbag sensor weight limit

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    According to the 2017 CR-V owner's manual the passenger side airbag off indicator depends on a weight sensor that has a threshold of 65 lbs (29kg) to activate the airbag. Meaning anyone sitting on the passenger seat weighing more than 65 lbs (29kg) should make the indicator light to turn off and...
  4. Driver Weight and Power Seat

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I recently test drove a 2017 EX-L and really liked it. But it didn’t seem like the up functions of the power seat had enough power to handle my 280 pounds. I’m pretty sure that it went up when I adjusted it from outside the car. I’ll have to try it in another car at a later date. Has anyone...
  5. Difference in Curb Weight Between Fwd EX-L and Fwd Touring

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I favor the Touring aesthetically because the chrome strip downplays the over sized cladding, which for me, detracts from the clean lines of the new redesigned body. I can live without the additional gadgetry of the Touring, so would I really pay $2k for a chrome strip? At this point, I don't...
  6. CRV Curb Weight

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    The owners manual reads #4,695 lbs. Is this wrong? I'm not sure why some members were saying the curb weight is in the 3ks?
  7. Project gen 2.5 Light weight pulley :)

    Performance Modifications
    Had these on when I had a 4 bannger accord with the k24a4 and notice that the car was lighter on its feet. So I decided to do the same for the CRV. Bought some light weight pullies that is from a base RSX/tsx. Ralco and UR are good brands, but I am pretty sure they all come from the same...
  8. 2015/2016 CR-V OEM Hitch Tongue Weight Rating?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Does anyone know the max tongue weight rating for the OEM hitch (1.25") for the 2015/16 CR-V? I won't be towing; it's needed only for a hitch-mount bike rack (and it would be a three-bike rack at most). I'm aware of the other options (including 2" receivers, many of which are on
  9. Generic Light weight pulley Install

    Performance Modifications
    I bought a set of ebay lightweight pulley. They are the 3 piece set but I am just going to be using 2/3 pulley since the alternator one is a pain in the ass to get to on these cars. Easiest way to get the crank pulley bolt off is to pull the fuel pump fuse and put a 19mm impact stock on the...

  11. 2014 Honda CRV - oil weight

    Maintenance and Service
    Hello, I'm sure some of you have been following my thread in the "dear honda" section of the board about the VCT rattle my 2014 V has had since the 200 mile mark. Well, after a recent oil change (at my request) at 2700 miles, the problem has gotten worse. I know there is some disagreement...

    Maintenance and Service
    HI It's time for an oil change on the 2006 CRV, US spec 2.4 liter 4 cyl. What weight oil do you guys use? I think the recommended regular/synthetic blend is 5W20 but I am not familiar with the full synthetics.
  13. 2014 CRV Tongue MAX tongue weight

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hey all, First time posting here. Just replaced my wife's 2010 Nissan Rogue with a 2014 CRV ex AWD (I told her we are a Honda family home) Why AWD in Florida you ask? I tow a stand up jetski typically with my 05 Accord LX, and some of the boat ramps here are rather sandy. My Accord is rated at...

    Can anyone tell me the max weight I can put into a 99 CR-v? I'm using this thing more and more like a truck and was curious but don't seem to find a number. Thanks
  16. Maximum Interior Weight Allowance.

    Maintenance and Service
    Will be going for some more stove pellets soon. I usually pull half a ton at a time (1000 pounds) in the utility trailer when I go for them but was wondering if that would be too much to just put them central in the V with the back seats folded up.

  18. Recommendations: Carry spare set of tires to Alaska

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hi all. I just bought a 2007 and will soon be driving it to Fairbanks to stay a few months. The return trip is in December, for which (and while there) I'll need snow tires. I'm lucky to have an extra set already, so I'd like to take them with. But they're on 16" wheels, so I have to take both...
  19. 2012 EX, roof rails and crossbars, weight limit?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I had the roof rails and racks included with the deal on our EX. In the installations manual (Honda installed them, not me), for each item it states the weight limit is 165lbs. I thought that I had read somewhere that it was 100lbs. Just looking to see what others thought on this. I suppose I...
  20. UR light weight engine pulleys

    Performance Modifications
    Hi, I tried a search for Unorthodox Racing pulleys to see if anyone had used them but i must be too old to work out how to use search without it searching for each word independantly. Anyway, i'm seriously considering installing the UR underdrive set on my 04 2.4L with Auto. I dont have big...
