I bought an aftermarket rear privacy cover from Amazon for $70 shipped instead of honda oem $185 plus shipping. It surprisingly fit perfect like an oem and the quality is very good, Im very happy :)

I just noticed in your signature you got a 2019 HR-V!!!!! what fun!
Yeah, our daughter bought the new car.

I'm still trying to get my brain wrapped around the controls. She yelled at me already for inadvertently changing her settings when I looked for the odometer reading!!! :Darn::snork:

This month I changed out the radiator coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid and an oil change. In another 8,000 miles, I will get the transmission fluid changed out.

Changed the oil using Super Tech Full Synthetic 0W20 and a Fram TG7317 oil filter.

Gave her a much needed bath today. Not too shabby for a 6+ YO vehicle with 80k miles. Great car!

Nothing yet, but the car is currently dead. Battery died - again! Just put this new AC Delco battery in back in Feb 2018. So it didn't last long. Going with a Group 24f AGM this time. I will be doing a full how-to thread with pics on it. I'll be using the Odyssey parts for the upgrade. The Group 51R is just not cutting it. I also got a NOCO Genius 5 smart battery tender and will be installing that and using from now on. Being as how I am retired and didn't drive that much anyway, and adding to that the current virus lockdown, I think this will be my best path forward. More to come! Will post it in the DIY Mods section.

My wife's car wouldn't start after 2 weeks of non-use. (18 month old battery!) :mad:

I need to buy more of those on-sale $5 battery maintainers from Harbor Freight. Not as SMART as the one @kloker mentioned, but it'll do. (I have a CTEK 5.0 for the AGM battery in one of our 'toy' cars)

I looked at the CTEKs and the NOCOs, and only chose the Genius 5 on price. Will see how it works out. $61 at Amazon. I'm probably gonna put the big money in an AGM battery. I'm tired of hassling with this issue repeatedly, eh? Plus, at some point I plan an audio upgrade, so this would be good for that, too. Can't justify the over $300 for the NorthStar AGM 24F though. Ouch! It doesn't even have gold accents!

I have used HF maintainers for years. I got 12 1/2 years out of an OEM Motorcraft on my 2001 Ranger and 11 years and still counting on an aftermarket motorcycle battery bought online.

6.5 years old and 90,700 miles and she still looks good! Don't mind the messy garage, I'm PCS'ing to VA in a little over a month, so I emptied out my shed.
I had to stop and think what PCS'ing was and then it dawned on me, I've done that! Thank you for your service.

Mom came over for a car wash so I conditioned her leather interior and my CR-V's leather parts as well. That one was quick as only the side bits are leather. Still, smells great. I think I'll take the family for a spin.

Had the tires rotated and balanced and got a much needed alignment. She drives beautifully again!
