Sensors are not functioning

published

CR-V parking sensors both at the front and rear are not functioning after a year of purchase. Both sensors have gone quiet when parking and one of the rear sensors fell inside because it was not glued well I think. During the first month of service after purchase itself, one of the rear sensors fell off its pocket and the service person fixed it. Parking sensor issues are ongoing for the Honda CR-V I currently own

Purchased in February 2019.

Love this car.

published

I bought this car to travel upon retirement.i did 17,000 kms the first 6 months throughout central Australia.it ran perfectly,good fuel consumption,and everything worked as it should.
I had no need for the roadside assist at all,I did stay mostly on sealed roads,however at times left for unsealed roads.
I use the car almost daily in the city ,for my needs and to help move grandchildren around.
The car is now 12 months,had all its scheduled services With no issues found.
Love this car

We drive this car daily. We use it around town as well as take it on trips. It is comfortable to drive as well as ride in as a passenger. It is serviced every time it is due and apart from a recent minor recall,we have never had a problem with it.

Is it possible to put another camera on the right hand side?

Hi Jan, No sorry, lane assist is not an option for right hand side, as majority of drivers are able to use the side mirror or head check. We acknowledge however, your feedback on the option of both side of the vehicle. All the best, Kiara

Love this car! Nice to drive, nice internal finishes and design. Amazing interior space!

published

I use it everyday for work, shopping, picking kids from school, camping, interstate travel. Nice exterior and interior design, plenty of leg room for tall people in front and rear seats. Really love it and highly recommend it. Our family has two CRV’s, I have the CRV Vti and my husband has the AWD ( different colours lol!)
We love the cars, we find them good value for money for a Japanese brand.

We bought a full kitchen in IKEA and it fitted perfectly in one CVR , the back seat fold down completely flat! The magic seats only Honda has!
Thank you very much

Very happy with our CRVs!!

Best car I ever had!

published

I can't say enough good things about this car. Highway fuel economy on a recent 5000 km trip was 6 L per 100 km (and about 7.5 L in city driving), great power from the turbo when called upon, comfortable seating, plenty of room for luggage. It is used almost every day around town, carrying grandchildren, lugging golf clubs, shopping etc. On our long trip, the fatigue sensor was really helpful in deciding when to rest. Wonderful car!

Purchased in June 2019 at Honda Dealers for A$34,500.00.

Great car for a the retired couple with a big dog that likes to travel and tow a small camper van.

published

Usage:
1. Everyday commute - shopping, spot & leisure. Great comfort and room for metro and country driving. Good acceleration when needed. Great economy.
2. Easily tows a small camper van on any reasonable road surface.
3. Our CRV VTi S is used every day.
4. Our car is serviced every 10,000kms which comes around more quickly than the suggested alternative of 6 months. It is serviced at the local Honda dealership which does a great job on it and our second car, a Honda Jazz.
5. We have not experienced any mechanical issues other than a recent, nation wide recall to replace the fuel pump - which has been done.

Perfect family car. I love it...!

published

Usually use this car for daily commuting to office, shopping and other day to day things. Car runs great and smooth. Can't complain. Have got it serviced once as recommended and is now due for second service next month. I would recommend this to anyone looking for buy their first car or upgrade from small one. Spacious enough to accomodate small family. Last row is probably not comfortable for adults, but good for kids up to 10 years of age.

I use my CRV for work and family, it’s got so much room. Love leg room, the folding rear seats and storage space. Good fuel economy and plenty of pep for overtaking. Such a comfortable car I love it. Had two RAV 4’s before and this is better!

CR-V

We have the current generation Honda CRV, topping range with a panoramic roof but only with Apple Car-play, so no Android-auto.

The issue I have is that every day, hot or cold, no matter what time of day; the car's brakes squeal? Has any one experienced this with theirs?

We have complained about this to Honda and they say after each and every service, they have not found this problem. I have also noticed some strange noises with the steering column.

Thanks in advance.

Is the oil dilution issue in new CR-V VTI-L7 fixed? I really love this car and seriously considering to buy one when it’s launched in Australia.

What you are describing is more of a market related and i heard about it when it was first launched in the US market l, looks the same yet completely different sources and calibrations and I think that issue is fixed already even there but not sure, in the Australian market that issue does not exist and it is the car is built differently, my car has done close to 45k and never had an issue

Honda
Honda HelpersHonda

Guru, Please allow us to answer this question for you - We have received advice from Honda Motor Japan that last year Honda China issued a local recall action for the CR-V Turbo model manufactured in China.
The recall addresses an issue that develops when the vehicle is driven for short distances in very cold environments (such as minus -20c) and the engine does not have time to sufficiently warm up.
Under these conditions, the result is that fuel can enter the engine and mix with the engine oil.
Please be assured Honda Australia has not received any reports of this condition in this country and in particular, we do not experience such extreme climate conditions in this country.

Thanks for clarifying this issue. Can you please confirm the price for Honda CR-V VTI-L7 that will be launched in October?
