I have a new CRV 2008, just used for four days. Today, I saw that the liquid is flowing along the side of my vehicle. When I examined, it was dropping of the plastic/rubber pipe placed under the vehicle, located somewhere between the end of front wheels. I collected that liquid and it seems like the water. I called my dealer and they said that the water is from Air Conditioner and its normal.
If its normal, did any CRV user experience such water dropping from such pipe ?

Very Normal

In humid weather it is very normal. The more humidity the greater it drips. The cold evaporator causes the humidity to condense on the surface, just like a cold drink sweats. The condensation is collected and drained out the tube. The removal humidity is part of the reason air conditioning is comfortable. It works on the same principle as dehumidifier for a damp basement. Instead of draining the pan, it drips from the car. Mine leaves a solid trail up the driveway.

Welcome to club and good luck with your new V.

Yup, A/C. No worries. If you use your air and DON'T see any condensation... then start to fret.
