Is the Gen3 using the 51R? Can you guys fit in a taller battery to have more CCA? That is such a weak battery and weakest costco sells I think.

Yes, Gen3 uses 51R I believe. Don't know if it's possible to fit a taller battery. Have heard that complaint about 51R before though.

My 2012 has a 51R rated at 410 CCA. Interstate offers two 51R batteries one at 425 CCA and one at 500 CCA. I have had good luck with Interstate batteries in all of my other cars.

Walmart Everstart (made by Johnson Controls) stocks a 56R; 590cca. The 56R size fits the 3rd gen CRV battery tray perfectly.
