My 2017 CR-V (bought in July 2017) has 14k miles and maintenance minder is showing the codes A167. 6 and 7 are brake and rear diff fluids. Isn’t it too early for that? Can maintenance minder be wrong?

Thanks!

If you bought them in the Summer of 2017 when were they manufactured? Probably 4-6 months earlier, which means they are close to the 3 year interval for brake fluid change.

Did mine when I wanted to not by what a engineer written into the system. Brake fluid did not touch it at all. my rear diff was fun to do.

My 2018 EXL showed A 1 6 at 14,000 miles. I asked about why the rear end differential oil needing to be changed so early. Tech told me the oil is break in oil and there would be a lot of metal filings in it. So, I took his advice and rolled with it.

I have a 2016 CR-V. I had the diff fluid changed at 16k, but never had a code show up in the maintenance minder. No code has been thrown for the brake fluid either. In fact the only code ever thrown by the maintenance minder was to rotate the tires. And once i reset it that code pops up again immediately.

I just had my brake mm pop up after about 16-17k.
They forgot to reset at the dealer for my oil change and rear diff flush also.
you can reset one at a time if like not hard to do .

**2017 EX-L with NAV nearing 50,000 miles. Talk with your dealer. While Maintenance Minder considers a number of factors in it's service recommendation they can all be overridden by the calendar time factor (such as replace brake fluid every 3 years if not prompted by MM.). I don't recall having seen a 7-code but MM said to replace my brake fluid at about 40-45,000 miles but it happened before a 3-mile time frame. On the calendar time factor, additives do wear out and brake fluids can absorb moisture leading to less effective braking and/or system rusting so that is why Honda & other automakers say to replace fluids at least ever so often.
