    Shopping & Test Driving
    I have never driven a Honda and our family is looking for a SUV. The first vehicle that comes to my mind is the Honda CR-V. My family requires the speedometer to be displayed digitally (having the needle too is fine). Which model years' have this feature?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi All, I’ve had my CRV now for a little over 2 years, and about 26k miles – so I thought I’d post a mini review/recap on my car and share my experiences with the form and potential purchasers. Background: I bought the 2017 CRV to replace a 2004 Toyota Highlander. I wanted something of similar...
  3. After 37 years of Honda, I’m “Done” with them

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    With 2 CR-Vs having the Oil Dilution Problem and the abysmal response from Honda, I’m fed up and finished with Honda. We will be trading them for 2019 RAV4s over the next couple of weeks. I want to be out of them before the next Consumer’s Report article which should “Severely Tarnish” Honda’s...
  4. What’s the best year(s) CR-V for off-road modifications?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Looking to buy an AWD CR-V for my rural mail carrier delivery route, as well as for some light weekend adventuring (fire road exploring, camping, kayaking, etc). I know there’s a few small lift kits out there, and will certainly be needing a size or two larger tires. Wondering what generation...

    Greetings & Introductions
    I'm looking into buying a CRV or RAV4 for traveling around Australia. Which model years are the most capable for offroading for the CRV?

  6. Replaced starter 4 times within the last 3 years

    Problems & Issues
    Ever since I bought a used 2007 Honda CRV back in 2015 I had to replace the starter 4 times. I've had to replace it about 1 to 2 times a year. This is not normal. I have a feeling the starter failure is not the root cause. Does anyone have any ideas what would cause the starter to fail in a...
  7. Would you take a free 2008 EXL that has been sitting in a garage for 5 years??

    Situation: Have a lead on a 2008 EX-L, fully loaded. Was the bequeathed personal property of a man here in South Texas who got it from his father in Kansas. It has been sitting in a garage for five years on flat tires. I have no idea of how much gas is in it. Battery dead. The person just...
  8. 2010 oil consumption- after 8 years

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I bought a new 2010 CRV. 8 years and 4 months later, I discover the BIG PROBLEM- burning oil ridiculously fast. Bulletin 12-089 states that Honda may rebuild engine (or replace pistons, etc) at 8 years OR under 125,000. Dealer says "whichever comes first". Does anyone have...
  9. You have eluded me for years, but victory is now mine! Misfire Codes Solved!

    Problems & Issues
    It's been a while, but thought I'd follow up on my daughter's CRV and the cursed P139XX codes. I replaced/serviced/adjusted the whole ignition system, HG, TB, injector seals, valves (over...and over....and over...), filter, etc., etc., etc. I finally thought, "I wonder if the injectors are...

  12. Is Honda Care offering extended warranty for 10 years?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I would like to get an extended warranty for my new 2017 CRV and looking at Honda Care that offers 10 years / 100,000 miles. I choose 10 years because my first car, a 2007 Nissan Versa started having lots of issues on its 7th year. If Honda Care does not offer, are there any good 3rd party...

    I want to pick up another CRV. Did all of the 2010-2011 models have the oil consumption issue? How would I know if looking at this year if it had the issue but did not get fixed. Was there a VIN range? Any other watch items for these years. How are the 2012-2014 models? Any issues to...

  15. 85 Years Ago the CRV of its Day had a new Engine Design

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    85 Years Ago the CRV of its Day had a new Engine Design. An interesting high quality video worth your time. This was during the Great Depression when a speeding ticket could be paid off with a bushel of potatoes or a couple of chickens. It is an hour, but if you want to watch some "off...

    Maintenance and Service
    Like many other people, my AC compressor "blew up"/shattered 4 years ago and it was approximately $1200 to replace (no help from Honda despite the class action suit).
