I know this is very minor and easy to fix. Did anyone notice the the valve stem caps don't really fit so to speak. When I screwed them on, the caps didn't go all the way onto the stem. They weren't "tall" enough. I noticed that when I checked the tire pressure the next morning after I took delivery.

I went back to the dealership the next day to check about 8 other 17 CR-Vs and all were the same. Just thought it was comical. I will probably buy some nicer ones online or at Auto zone or something.

By the way, I know others have posted this but check your tire pressure after buying. Mine was 37 psi in front and 34 psi on the rear. Not a big deal but supposed to be 33 psi and 30 psi.

Thanks for the heads up. I will be sure to check the pressures and recalibrate the TPMS when we pick up our 2017.

Are they tight? Like as in hard to turn, but eventually tighten?

You need less psi in the tires for a softer ride. I can't imagine how many people are testing driving this car and saying it's a bad ride compared to the previous model when the tires have too much air.

Yep, so much I started turning the valve stem. I backed off. Probably get some from Auto zone.

As to tire pressure - yep, same with our '17 Touring. Too high and adjusting to spec improved the ride noticeably. It's interesting the offset between front and back (30 and 33). I always run factory pressures for road driving - it's optimal for wear and sticks with what was designed for the car.
