  1. I have a 2018 CRV 2.0 auto. I do about 5-6K per year. I was aware of the fuel consumption issue but with the low mileage I felt for me personally it wasn't an issue. Most my driving is urban and relatively short distance. I currently average 29 - 30 mpg around town. It may not be the quickest but again for me I find it definitely adequate for my style of driving. Reliability and comfort are good. As a Honda owner for some 20 years I am probably biased, the CRV is an easy vehicle to drive, and the driving position I find is excellent, and I have had no problem in the last 3 years with reliabil

  2. This is totally true, it's down to the dye in copied discs not working well with the optical pickups, causing them to work & spin constantly which ultimately exhausts them and causes accelerated wear. Particularly the case with the pre facelift accord v2.xx systems. the v3.xx systems seem less effected but i still wouldn't recommend it. If you try a copied disc you'll hear a difference in how hard the drive is working and notice the extended time it takes for the ok button to appear after the warning message. also need to be mindful of a certain ebay seller (nav-upd

  6. I think that speed enforcement cameras can be distracting. Drivers tend to concentrate more on the speedo than they do on the road ahead as they don't want to get caught speeding. Driving abroad where there aren't so many cameras is far more relaxing - and I still don't go blasting around the place just because there are no cameras. I drive to the road and the conditions I'd be much happier if motorway speed limits were increased though, and less of those not-so-smart motorway camera zones. I've been in the control centres for those, and it's all very interesting, but so frustrating when

  8. You bought an Ep2, my first car was the same, to be honest you would rather just buy an ep3 as it's cheaper than engine swapping and then adding all the bits for the ep2 to be able to handle the power. Plus ep3s have started to go up in value and will only continue to do so

  9. use Honda CVT oil for the gearbox, and 0w20 oil for the engine which is Honda's latest recommeneded grade. I persoally use Exol Honda spec 0w20 which is great value. As for spark plugs, perhaps try cross referencing the original part numbers with Denso. I find their IK and IKxxTT range of iridium plugs to be great and much cheaper than NGK equivalents and have been using them as long as I can remember. I use IK20TT plugs for my K20 FRV and K24 Accord. An online dealer like Cox Motor parts would have everything you need in terms of original Honda items and would also provide the req

  10. A new clutch will be good, as said before my Accord done 257K on the same clutch and was fine, so I'm surprised the clutch has been changed, was it used for towing. The heated seats may be something simple like fuses, they also only work when sat on them , in case you have just been feeling with your hand. Happy motoring

  14. The oil you have in the CRV is synthetic, any good quality Synthetic 0W-30 will do. I have a 2011 CRV same as yours, mines an auto, and things to look out for in my experience are: 1: The front struts and lower arms will do about 110K then will need replacing as the 2.2 is a lump. 2: I had an issue around 90K when the car would cut out occasionally, it would start straight away after but a bit scary. This was cured with a software update. 3: Issue with exhaust manifold leaking, as these are two parts welded together. They were recalled and fixed for free if less than 100K a

  15. Hi I have just put a genuine spoiler on my car and yes I believe it is a bit of a faf to change the light. I have attached a link to the fitting instructions of the spoiler. If you look at how you fit it it shows how to fit the light so maybe you could use this in reverse. my advice is to buy a genuine light, I tried a cheap one on eBay and it was rubbish. https://www.coxmotorparts.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/08F02T1G6-.pdf

  21. Hi all, I have recently bought a 2013 honda civic which had an SD navigation system, I have contacted the local honda dealer, and found that the latest SD card that I can get for the system is a 2018 version, Is there anyway I could download the latest 2020 maps to my system? Any other advice welcome please. JH

  22. Thanks Trevor, I did try that approach, but wasn't successful, I think lack of part numbers, makes it much more difficult. However, I got pointed in the right direction and found the clips along with practically everything else you could think of for a Honda! lol If anyone else reading this, happens to be looking for similar items, here is the link. https://www.lingshondaparts.com/ The clips are pricey, but they are genuine Honda items. The part numbers are displayed, which may aid a search for pattern versions. Thank again for t

  25. How about have the rear diff oil changed, that's normally about 60K miles. About £100 at the garage but may be worth asking for it to be done before you buy. My 2011 CRV is just coming up to 116K and it needs it's front struts changed, that's the only issue I have had. Oh forgot about the firmware update. I had an issue with the car cutting out randomly, this was found to be a software update, been fine since.

  26. it's not quite as straighforward as using off the shelf parts without modification. In terms of steering controls, the interface is most similar to Honda Civics so that's the interface you start with, but the civic harness adaptor is not the same as the FRV. What you need to do is combine the 2... parts you need (pictured): Connects2 CTSHO001.2 Steering wheel control interface for Honda Civic Autoleads PC2-68-4 basic ISO harness CTMULTILEAD.2 steering wheel control patch lead (this one is universal but you can get specific ones for your brand

  28. The adjustment you need is the track (whether the wheel is pointing forward or off to the side slightly). This sometimes comes about if the rear wheel has been bumped against a kerb hard enough to knock the alignment out slightly. There are adjustable link arms but the locknuts can be a bit tight and may need freeing off first. If they start from the rear of the vehicle first and then check the front afterwards, most don't bother and just compensate by making adjustments to the front only.

  38. Thanks for the welcome. I spoke to the previous owner of my CR-V shortly after I bought it and the first thing she asked me was could she buy her CR-V back. After looking for a CR-V of the spec I wanted for a period of time I declined and the rest is history. In fairness to our CR-V its done sterling service for us & that involved it being used as a van for a few weeks after we were flooded. The only issue with the car in nearly 6 years of everyday use that was a out and out failure was one of the pressure sensors on the auto gearbox. When the sensor

  40. Hello everyone, I have a Black 1987 Prelude Si, that has been wrecked; however, it has a relative new engine in it that has only 50,000 miles on it! I have all the paperwork of maintenance history, and it was maintained meticulous with oil and filter changes and scheduled maintenance! The car has 362,985.4 miles on the speedometer with the engine replacement taking place at 310,000 miles performed at Honda dealership. There are many good parts on the car, such as 4-speed transmission, some of the front and rear suspen

  41. I've had this on a 2008 Accord iCTDi Tourer. For me, the issue was the fly by wire throttle. Luckily, I carry a fault finder with me and it continues to function ok after deleting the fault. It has happened to me twice in 6 months. Still to solve the issue though.

  47. Now fixed. Honda FRV front washer pump is £60+. Aftermarket Jazz 02-08 pump is £10 and fits. The difference is that the FRV has two pumps with connectors that ensure that you don't get the connections mixed up for the front and rear washer pumps. The aftermarket pump will accept either connector. Thanks for your advice Al
