I have a 2017 Honda LX CRV. This is my 4th CRV and my last. I have taken my vehicle in more times then the previous 3 combined. My warning lights come on while driving and then disappers. Service is unable to recreate the issue. I have taken photos of the dash when it occurs. This happens when I am driving and the weather is clear. The radar comes on, low tire pressure, and all the other alerts. Thats it Honda. they claimed they upgraded the software and yet the problem persist. Anyone else having this problem?

Go to a different dealer. Have them test the battery, low voltage will do just what you are describing. Sounds more like the dealers fault than Honda. Good luck with your next manufacturer.

My cruise control would randomly malfunction. I took a couple videos with the phone and showed the tech. It wa a faulty steering wheel switch. Might try to video the concern verses a picture. I agree a weak battery causes all kinds of gremlins too.

Definitely try another dealer for your problem. They are not all the same. My wife went in for one of her free oil changes on her leased 2017 CR-V Ex. They told her they had to do a software update and change the oil, all free. Then when she went to pick it up they charged her for an oil filter and labor that came to $25.00. They said the filter wasn't included in the update but the oil was. WTF? They also said her brake fluid was due for a change at just 17,000 miles. They said that would cost $164.99. She said maybe some other time. Won't be back to that dealer anytime soon.

I no longer go to a dealership because they tore up the plug to my oil pan and charged me over $ 100.00 for their mistake. I have a trusted mechanic that has taken good care of my CRV. Perhaps a second opinion even with a recommended mechanic could solve this problem. I hope you can solve this. As you know the CRV is a well made car.

Best of luck!

Unfortunately, this is the current AHM policy with the TSB for software update and oil change... The oil filter isn't part of the "fix" so if you want that it's out of your pocket.

I'm on #2. My CRV AWD 2019 shifter broke, like it has for many others, and not I have NO FAITH in anything HONDA. What else is chinese made garbage, will I have engine issues next, or worse, electronics issues. Will I'l be standard out in the desert (live in California). Next thought I would end up hating Honda but I do. Going to test drive Toyota Highlander. Nothing in my life has disappointed me more. Honda went from hero to enemy very quickly.

On my 8th Honda and sticking it out so far. Had a few niggling issues with computer electronics but no show stoppers. Local dealer is also pretty honest and competent. Hoping to hang on to this one for many years.

Just curious, why would you pay if they damaged it?

Actually, if I remember correctly, isn't the LX version basically last year's model in an updated body? Also if I remember correctly, it's not the new 1.5 liter turbo engine either. What was your last model Honda? Was it also a 4th gen? Because basically, that's what you bought. Sort of a hybrid between the 4th and 5th generation.

When I purchased mine on 3 March 2017, my options were...
Toyota RAV4 - hideous new front nose clip and lackluster interior.
Volvo XC60/90 - only seats 4 (won't work for a family of 5,la a want to strap a kid to the roof.... Which has crossed my mind from time to time, as has the reaction of the local constable and all associated court costs), doesn't seem to age well, ridiculous base price to get into it and horrible gas mileage.
Ford Edge - not bad looking, nice feature set, not great gas mileage but am totally scared of any Ford automatic transmission vehicle! They simply agree terribly bad! Do was a distant runner up....of sorts.
Jaguar F-Pace - nice looking and nicer interior but once again, only seats 4 but I agree with Mater (from Disney's Cars movie) when it comes to British cars when he said, "...if there ain't oil under 'em, there ain't oil in' em!" Was pretty vindicated when my neighbors leased diesel F-Pace, of the same year, lost its motor.
Range Rover Evoque - straight up sexy! But once AGAIN, only seats 4 and... Mater RULES!
Chrysler Derango/Journey - why pay that kind of money for old technology, with an updated lighting package, in a new chassis so that you can get lousy gas mileage?
Land Rover (anything) - sexy vehicles with huge engines (in comparison) and lousy gas mileage für easy to much money! Also, Mater was one again spot on!

All said, I'm not totally in love with my CR-V EX-L (like I was with my '87 Civic Si), but I don't loathe it either. I think that it's fairly trustworthy, gets the best gas mileage (according to www.fueleconomy.gov) of anything except for hybrid versions (apples and oranges, right?), looks aren't the greatest, but she's got personality. Also, with my daily commute being just over 100 miles per day, she's a comfy fit with good enough and fairly well thought out features and ergonomics.

The OP mentions radar which is on the LX's sold in Canada and not in the US. Also I believe the models sold in Canada have the 1.5 engine and the US version LX has a 2.4 engine. Never heard that the LX is a "Hybrid of the 4th and 5th generation". Basically the engine and features are the difference in the trim lines.

Say what? You can easily fit 5 people in the XC60 and 7 in the XC90. Now, a 5th in the XC40 may not be all that comfortable.
