Be aware.....Honda controls the rollout of TSBs, not the dealerships. If a dealer performs a TSB without your VIN being authorized by Honda... the dealer does not receive compensation by Honda to cover the work. See Note-1: belowNor was the local dealer willing to apply fix for my CR-V. They did pulled-up the extended warranty TSB, but said I still had to have a CEL light to appply fix.
CR says yes they will "finally" apply fix. Dealer says go pound sand again.
"Oh, Hi Mark"Fuel vapor getting into oil has always occurred to some degree. The problem unique to the 2017-2018 CRV's is that this fuel vapor accumulates over time, especially in colder weather. Honda's solution will be to program the car to warm up faster so fuel cannot condense in the oil. If I had a 2017-2018 CRV 1.5 L, I would just take it on an extended highway drive at least once a week until the official recall occurs. That should heat the engine up enough to volatilize all the fuel out of the oil.
Evidently very few people. A number so small compared to the annual sales that it's just as likely that you will have any other random problem like a broken Stereo etc.Are any 2019 owners experiencing oil dilution problems? I assumed Honda made the fix as they were in production.
That ws my guess also. I think, inhindsight, they have been the only nattional pub to address this issue. Kudos for that CR! I am sure their laweyrs are being cautioius. I remeber years ago when they got sued by an auto manufactuere becuase they said they vechicles were not safe.No doubt few raise their hoods. This nonsense has been going on since the 16' Civic 1.5L roll out. Maybe Honda can rejoice in the distracted and less than informed US auto consumer. Even though CR is mostly unbiased, they probably have to weigh the quality of info they are provided along with libel/slander lawsuit threat.
