Sensors are not functioning
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

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

All round good car
Since buying this car in February 2019 it has not let me down. It is economical on petrol and very roomy inside. Not a fan of the electronic boot but have now become used to all the other electronic driver assistance (or not so) gadgets. My biggest disappointment is with Honda as I agree with another writer regarding the "Honda Tailored Service" doc. provided to me on the purchase of the car. Why imply verbally and give me a document that shows the price of the yearly service up to 100,000 km when on the first service the price had rise...n. I was provided that first service at the price the document stated but not sure Honda will honour the price next time. So I maybe going somewhere else. The service pricing does not take away that the CR-V is a great family car, but buyer beware with regards to warranty pricing.

Great car / good service
Great family run around - used daily both long & short distance trips @ around 25k per year - economical for size of vehicle - Serviced regularly according to log book with Honda dealership - around 50k so far

Driving Good Fuel Terrible
Drive to work go visit family and friends going out to places on weekends. We use the car every day. We service the car when it’s due the mechanic says it’s in good working order the only thing I do not like about this car it’s a petrol guzzler.
THIS IS PERFECT. GREAT drive.
Commuting to work, service after school such as nanny work and leisure transportation.
I use the car daily. I have only had the car serviced once for the complimentary service for a new car. No issues with the car at this point.

It's good but it's still not perfect
I used it for working and family transportation every day, we services as manufacture plan or every 10000 kms as it's still new we are waiting to service for 10000 km to see what the Honda mechanic says.
Love it best car ever
Great family car that handles like a dream, it goes on all kinds of roads surfaces and handles great. It gets serviced ever 10000 km, never skipped a beat, would buy another in a heart beat.

Love our CR-V
We are a one car family (kids have left home) so use the CRV for all activities even towing a trailer. We find it economical, powerful when needed (we use the power button when overtaking), spacious and has great luxury appointments. The only thing that lets the car down a bit is the car audio system, it has a few quirks like not always connecting to our iphones for apple car play and it’s brightness control can often get stuck and makes the screen go back and forth between bright and dark until we have to shut the whole thing down. Also the c...ar had a rear main seal Oil leak when we bought it but this was fixed on warranty and is ok now. After previously having a 2005 CRV sport for 14years this is definitely a much better car and we were happy with the old one.

Best car I ever had!
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!
Great car for a the retired couple with a big dog that likes to travel and tow a small camper van.
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.
Enjoy driving my car, feel very safe
Drive short distances daily and longer drive weekly for private reasons , no off road driving, car is serviced regularly as required and no problems have been mentioned until receiving safety recall re fuel pump fault

I love CRV Sports edition. A comfortable family SUV with low maintenance costs.
Commuting family. Few days in a week. Service is done once a year or 10000 km whichever is earlier. So far the service is good and service amount is capped.
Perfect family car. I love it...!
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.
Purchased in June 2019 for A$40,000.00.
A great car
Used for city commute to work, a comfortable car with a punchy turbo. Achieving 6.7l/100kms. Car is only 6 months old so only had it's first service to date. Would recommend this car to anyone looking for this type of car.
So happy with my CRV
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!
Questions & Answers
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.
Has anyone have their fuel tank leaked mine is leaking under the car talked to dealer getting towed on Monday.
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
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.
