New owner but wished I would have read all these GAS and OIL issues before I bought. Read all the Edmunds and other publications about it and they said nothing. Must be concerned Honda will sue them or something.
Enjoy your new ride. There are a lot of new CRV owners with no problems, and you don't hear about those. You hear about the ones having problems. Any forum you go to will be overrun with the problems. I bought a 2012 Pilot, then heard about all the problems with the VCM on the V6 engines. If I listened to them, my Pilot would have been dead a long time ago. Going on 100000 miles, problem free. My 2018 CRV has been really good, no problems so far, except the battery had a bad cell, but was replaced by dealer.
