    Warranty claims

    I have to say that the technology used in Honda SatNavs and other onboard systems is way outdated compared to some other manufacturers....an area in which they could do with investing in.

    Hi All

    Hi willyh and welcome to the Club The CR-V is a superb car but I have to say, so is the Jag as well....definitely a lifestyle choice though. I love my CR-V for the pure reliability and available space inside and the comfort and..... Good to have you onboard Cheers, Trevor

    Hi All

    Just bought 2015 CR-V 1.6D Auto in great condition and absolutely loving it. It replaced a Jaguar XF because as we get older its harder to get in and out of plus no boot access. Its the first Honda Ive owned and it surprises me how good it is. I cant stop showing people how the rear seats fold up....really well thought out. Only downside so far is I dont like to blow the horn ha ha.

    new crv satnav terrible

    I agree. the satnav as supplied in my brand new CRV top of the range 1.6dtec in January 2018 is crap. New roads in Lancashire as not on the database. The system also does not include traffic cameras as all stand alone Garmin systems do. Like you I an sticking to the Tom Tom which is a much better system. Pull your finger out Honda and get this sorted!!! I've never had trouble with Tom Tom in bad weather. Oh, if you want a MacDonalds - they are indicated!

    Warranty claims

    Hi I am new to the forum Just to say that I never use the stop/start function. I disable this as part of my start-up routine. I I am in a traffic jam I can always turn the engine off! As for warranty issues. I purchased a new top of the range CRV 1.6dtec in January. since then the rear mirror shroud has continued to come lose and rattle. I've been back to the dealer three times and phoned Honda customer support. The issue is still on going. A simple fix would be to bend the locating clips outwards a little to make the item more secure. The fix so far has been double sided tape! What a laugh!! Also the sat nav is a big disappointment. The update still does not feature new roads in Lancashire and does not include the Cyclops database of traffic management cameras. A poor do since all the stand alone Garmen systems have this. Hondas reaction - silence!!!

    Heater Motor Rheostat

    Not sure if this is the same model version but generally the rheostat is located near to the motor (if not on top of it)
  10. Does anyone have or know where I can get a used ignition block (not chipped) and for my 2000 Civic Aerodeck please? I'm getting desperate and don't want to scrap him!

    Tyres for Jazz

    Try Michelin Cross Climate, all round, quiet, grippy, smooth and best of all they perform well in adverse conditions. Very capable safe tyre. Had a set on now for the past 18 months, can’t fault them.

    Hello

    Hi...welcome to the Forum It could be the file structure for the music stored on the flash drive. Maybe worth playing with the titles and format of the content to see if that makes any difference Let us know how you get on Cheers Trevor

    CRV 2007 DOOR MOLDING REMOVED

    It sounds like it is broken and unable to refit if it has been ripped off....maybe Araldite or a similar adhesive would work

    Hello

    On my fourth Honda, first was a 1986 Accord. Currently 2018 CRV with a problem playing music via USB. They first upgraded the software then replaced the audio/display hardware. Still not working right. Anyone else having such a problem? If so has it been solved & what was the solution? They told me I must have a corrupt USB flash drive or corrupt files. I’ve tried five drives, each one a different brand. Only one seems to work MOSTLY right. The others just stop playing and if I switch to a radio station and back to USB it will sometimes start again. love the car but very frustrated with this problem.
  17. Have you changed the diesel filter recently, fuel rail pressure could be dropping. When you go into limp home mode have you read the fault codes? Could also be turbo overboots occurring

    New 4x4 Terrible

    Hi Trevor, So mine is much newer (2015), a petrol with the AWD system (rather than 4x4 - I think). Looking at all the test and reviews in the snow - I think All Season tyres may help - just to give it some traction to allow it to shift some power to the back wheels (all electronic now). Thanks for all your help and time on this - I do appreciate it. Cheers, Gee

    New 4x4 Terrible

    Hi Gee I own a 2007 (3rd Generation) 2.2 diesel CR-V with manual gearbox. The Yokos are summer tyres with not a huge amount of tread left on them. In general, i think even if you put your foot down and it starts to slip and lose traction then the Traction Control System should kick in to cut the revs and give you back the traction. If you still have some snow it may be worth trying it again to see what happens....also check your tyre pressures are correct for the conditions. Cheers, Trevor

    New 4x4 Terrible

    Hi Trevor, Thank you. What kind of CR-V do you have - diesel or petrol? Which year? I have normal summer tyres - 6mm tread all round. Goodyears. Are your Yoko's all-year or summer tyres I haven't felt any bumps at all, but I'll now look out for it. Cheers, Gee.

    New 4x4 Terrible

    Hi Gee....welcome to the forum I took my CR-V out in the snow and deliberately went up slopes on unmade roads to try out the 4wd...which I have to say I was very impressed with. Having never experienced it in action before, I was amazed at how it just dug in and went up the hill (with low throttle only) with no effort at all....different to coming down the hill though. The only time I knew it was active was when I felt a small bump from the rear as it engages the final drive. I am only running quite worn Yokohamas and they did the job okay....what tyres are you running? Cheers, Trevor

    New 4x4 Terrible

    Hi all, I just bought a CR-V SE Navi 4WD 2.0 i-VTEC. Recently, in the snow, it was pretty rubbish to be honest, I was a bit disappointed as i bought the car thinking the 4 wheel drive would be perfect. Has anyone else had problems at all? Do all-weather tyres help at all? Any help or recommendations appreciated. Cheers. Gee

    I'm the proud owner of an FR-V 2.2 cdti SE. What a cracking car. I've recently figured out how to get the radio out to connect an aux box off Amazon. With a little modification I was able to get it out with out taking the entire middle of the dashboard out. I did end up with a few corking gashes on my hands though. Totally worth it.
