Stay away from the New CRV

Good car but terrible experience so far for brand new car. Two weeks on having the vehicle it has develop a knocking noise when braking which has been confirmed by the dealership and they has advised us that they have experience the same issues on a different vehicle on same model. Between the dealership and Honda Australia they don't know how to fix it. Both Honda Australia and the Prestige Honda can't even give us a replacement vehicle and we are now stuck with a car they can't confirm if it's safe to drive and worst part is No one seems to be helping us on 6 weeks us
old Honda..! I would not recommend buying this Car and stay away..! Show details

Very happy purchaser

Purchased as a demonstrator from Baker Motors in Albury last year. Really happy with this car. The fuel efficiency is very good. The space/storage is excellent and the car is quiet and rides well. 2nd service at 30k amazingly cheap under fixed price servicing and Bakers are very professional. Easy to drive, rear vision good and high seating position suits our now aging frames. I am happy with this car and full recommend it so far, having travelled approximately 10k km. Show details

What a great decision it was to get one of these!

A brilliant daily drive. Very responsive, fuel efficient, comfortable, beautifully finished and great value vehicle.

We've had it for 15 months now and apart from a misaligned chrome strip on the driver's door (being fixed this week under warranty), it hasn't missed a beat! Show details

Poor Design of Mid Row Seat Latch from Honda

I have an issue with the mid row seat. When the seat is unlatched and latched again, the latch does not lock the seat in place. I have to twist the seat (base) for it to lock in place. If this is not done, the movement of the seat is audible while driving. Also, if there are passengers on that seat, they can feel the movement while driving.

I took the vehicle to Formula Honda Glen Osmond. 3 days later they told me that they have compared this with a brand new one from the show room and they confirmed that this is normal and no fault found. Refer to attached.

Is this an acceptable level of quality? Show details

Oil dilution issue?

I've read about oil dilution (fuel into oil) issues with the 1.5T engine; particularly in very cold weather and short journeys. I know there's a class action in the US and China has stopped selling them. Is that an issue here in Australia? Has anyone come across this problem? Show details

Great SUV, but more engine options would be nice

The Honda CR-V is a great SUV but could do with a little more power for its size and to allow a bigger towing capacity.
Have owned for two years and driven 30K with no issues. Fuel consumption is 8.6lts avg.
Would buy Honda again if Honda Australia hadn't shrunk its dealer network to virtually non-existent. Show details

Disappointed With My CRV VTI LX

Picked up the new car in February 2021 and had problems almost immediately. At present I have been wating on a crucial safety part for 9 month and been told the part might not arrive in the country untill 2023. I can't recommend the Honda CRV as my experience has been one of bitter dissapointment. If it was possible I would trade it in now for a more reliable car. Show details

Questions & Answers

David Y.
David Y. · CR-V (2017-2024)

Has anyone noticed a leak coming from the square plastic covers in the tail gate which allow access to the light bulbs, brand new Honda CRV 2023 LX MODEL.
While cleaning the car I noticed a thin trail stain, from both sides, of what I thought was oil or something spilt on the interior panel but on further investigation it was coming from those panel covers. I’m guessing the tail light assembly might have a leak problem. TIA

I have seen the thin line. I thought it was from washing the car. I will look further into it.

How do I get the doors on my 2022 Honda CRV VTI LX to automatically lock once I start driving? The images in the owners manual do not represent what is installed on my vehicle - very annoying!
