    On my wife's car, if she pushes right in the center of the air bag cover, like right on the Honda emblem, the horn will not go off. If you push the air bag cover on on outer edge the horn will go off. I have tried to adjust the air bag position in the steering wheel mount. No change. Anyone...

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I have an older CRV 2005 still chugging at 240,000 - I love it and the wife hates driving in the winter. I found a 2009 with 120,000 miles for $8,500. Is there a certain year that I should avoid for issues. I remember posting on this forum in the past and someone mentioned certain years to...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V

  9. Collision Mitigation Braking System tied with my wife

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Was out on a drive doing some errands with my wife in the city. As I was looking down for something near me, my wife and the Braking System both sounded off for me to stop right away, as a car had decided to make a quick, sudden stop, just after it had started to go after the light had turned...
  10. First time Honda owner. Purchased the wife a new CRV

    Greetings & Introductions
    So we were some of the lucky folks that purchased a VW Diesel. Overall it was a great car, but we're turning it in soon and the wife needed a car. We test drove the CRV and she loved it. Ended up picking it up last night even though we had an appointment for tomorrow. Just wanted to say hi!
  11. Wife Acceptance Factor = 100%

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    While we freely drive each other's vehicles, the CR-V is really "mine", a replacement for my beloved (but worn out) '04 1.8T M/T Passat Wagon. Well, my wife's car (an '06 Solara Convertible that she will probably drive until the wheels fall off, due to the dearth of viable replacements), has to...

    Mobile Electronics
    My bluetooth hands-free system always syncs to my wife's phone first when we both get into the car. Being that I do most of the driving, I would like to change this default to sync to my phone first. I have tried "forgetting" the hands-free on both phones and adding mine back first, however...
