  1. 2002 CRV AWD multiple issues, is it worth it?

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, I bought my 2002 CRV AWD back in 2015. It had 88k miles on it and all it needed were some new motor mounts and tires as both were dry rotted. The passenger side door locks didn't work at all, but I was a broke college kid and never got them fixed. This past year, I got error code...
  2. Engine Cover - worth buying and would it reduce engine/cabin noise?

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Have anyone tried to install an Engine Cover on your Gen 3 CRV? If so, have you noticed any noise level reduction (e.g. cabin noise level, engine noise, etc)? Is it mainly for cosmetic purpose to install such an engine cover, or would it actually add some value for resale, or make the car runs...

  4. "Free" Dealer Warranties: Are they worth it?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I think this has been mentioned somewhere in another thread (but I'm unable to find it). My dealer offered the "free engine and drive train for life" coverage, along with free oil changes and inspections for life. I assumed there would be lots of catch-22 issues that would arise and checked on...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Im thinking of upgrading my 2017 EX to the EX-L model. The seats in the EX are killing my back and The EX-L has a much more comfortable seating with some extra options. Has any one traded up after a month or so? Or is it not worth the price upgrade? Thanks
  7. Official Honda Cargo Tray or WeatherTech? Worth 33$ Difference?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I'm thinking of getting a cargo liner for things like garden products/plants. I see many do like the weathertech, but as I do like the cargo floor in the upper position (makes a nice seat for changing shoes, etc!) I won't be using it that much, just as needed. Is the weathertech 33$ better? I...
  8. Is it worth buying a 17 year old car?

    1999-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1.5)
    Hi all, although I do not own a honda, I am planning on getting my first car and I really like honda cr-v's. I live in europe and I'm looking at them on a popular german used car website. I really like the look of the first generation cr-v's, both inside and outside. I am planning to drive it...
  9. Worth it to buy leftover 2016 off lot?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    We are in the market for a new car and started looking at the CRV. I already have a Hyundai Tucson and my wife wants to trade in her Cruze for a similar sized crossover SUV since we just had our first baby. My question is that I know the car was redesigned for 2017 and has major improvements so...
  10. I did $1800 Worth of Damage to My 2 Week Old CRV EXL Without Leaving the Driveway

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    OK, ultimately it was my fault - I was the driver so, "that's that" as they say. Still, as a mechanical engineer and 32 year commercial pilot (lastly on the 777) I have to question Honda's logic of making a backup up camera std equipment while a warning beeper is optional. Anyway, I agonized...
  11. Is it worth to trade 2016 CRV for 2017

    Northeast CR-V Owners
    Hi All, This might sound totally stupid to ask but still I want to ask. I bought CRV 2016 EXL in Aug 2016. Even though before buying I did some research on if there are any know major issues with CRV 2016, I didn't found anything related what is going to come in 2017 model. Somehow maybe I...

  14. What's it worth?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    I will be selling my 2013 EX in the fall and am wondering what it's worth. I purchased it brand new in 2014 and it's been flawless other than batteries and regular maintenance. It's pretty clean as I always had seat covers and park it in the garage. I have another car and am not trading it in...
  15. Is diesel worth it?

    Diesel CR-V
    Hi all, I'm looking at buying a crv. Probably 2nd Gen. After reading many issues in this topic, it is putting me off buying a diesel. I would have preferred it due to torque and fuel consumption. You guys are the owners, would you buy a diesel if you had the choice?

    CR-V Owners in Europe
    Hello, I have just bought a UK 1.6L CR-V Auto EX sensing with adaptations for hand controls due to a medically induced spinal problem. I went for this vehicle because the vehicle has the adaptive cruise control, lane keeping aids etc. Hand controls are manual and together with Honda's...
  17. GAP insurance at $595. Is it worth it?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    While purchasing CRV 2016 Touring recently I also got GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) at $595. The finance guy told me that if GAP is not used during the loan period, the total amount ($595) will be refunded!. Is that true? It was hard to believe for me but he convinced me somehow to purchase...
  18. Extended warranties: Are they worth it?

    Maintenance and Service
    Normally, I don't get extended warranties mainly because Consumer Reports tends to think they are a waste of money. But somehow I let myself be talked into buying two when I purchased my 2016 Honda CR-V Touring recently. I am still able to cancel them and get a full refund and want opinions...
  19. Is my CR-V Worth the repairs?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi, Today I received some sad news from the mechanic, they told me they didn't think my 2005 CR-V was worth the rapairs needed. I love my car and I really don't want to lose her but I can't put the money into her if she isn't going to last. Here are some specs: 336,036km 2005 4 door, all...
  20. Vtec, worth casual driving?

    Under The Hood / Performance
    I hear the V-Tec locks the valves together at around 4,500RPM. If one were to install a V-Tec head onto a stock CRV's B20Z(USDM) engine, it wouldn't be an advantage would it? Even with a 5 speed I don't reach 4,500.....more like 3,000 RPM... I'm not sure if V-Tec would even kick in driving...
