CR-V

I've just sold my 2016 CR-V VTi Limited edition 2.4l which I loved, so I'm now in the market for a new vehicle.
I'm considering the 2020 CR-V VTi X MY21 with the 1.5 turbo but I'm reading lots of reviews about engine problems , vibrations, oil dilution.
Honda dealer said the issue is only in USA but it is the same engine.
Has anyone had any issues with this vehicle.

Hi David, Thanks for your post on your Honda 2016 CR-V, we are pleased to hear on how much you loved your vehicle. In reference to the oil dilution concern, we would like to offer the following advice;

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. If you have an opportunity, perhaps look at some of the positive reviews that our customers have posted on their CR-V purchase. We hope to have you return to the family.
Thanks Kiara

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

what is the total distance on a tank of petrol have you gotten in a 2019 or 2020?

Hey Joshua, Great Question! This will all be dependent of the style of driving you conduct in the vehicle, i.e highway driving versus stop start traffic. However overall the CR-V model is extremely fuel efficient. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to reach out to a dealer or our customer service team on 1800 804 954. Thanks Kiara

CR-V

Please help! I have owned 2 Honda CRVs. One was 2004 I have the 2014. Both have the shudder that Honda have claimed they know about. Does this mean they are doing something about it. Was so disappointed when the shudder started on this one... couldn’t believe that it would happen again. I just think it’s not fair that they know about this problem and are still selling them.

Hey mate. I was a mech at a dealership. There was a common fault with shudder in diff. I cant remember exact models but there was a tech line out for it. Pretty much we would replace diff oil. Then sit in car on hoist raised off ground. Run run car forward for 10 mins at like 3000rpm. Then run in reveres for same. Then forward and back again. Then change replace fluid again.

CR-V RM (2012-2016)

On occasions my remote control won’t work & have been unable to lock my car. On returning to the vehicle sometimes only 15 minutes later find the accessories, interior & side lights all on. The auto electrician & Honda dealership can’t find anything wrong.

Wow sounds like a nuisance problem, the best people that have direct access to Honda are the car dealers, specially the one where you get your car serviced.
I have contacted Honda direct and they keep palming me off to the dealers.
So keep hassling them and ask them for solutions, maybe to reprogram or replace your remote control.
Good luck!

Hi. I'm curious about Honda CR-V DTi-L Limited Edition 4wd Auto with 1.6 turbodiesel & ZF 9 Speed auto. Has anyone reviewed it? I heard the 9 speed auto itself has bad reliability. I haven't heard anything much about the known problem specifically for that version.

CR-V RD7 (2002-2006)

My CR-V RD7 shakes badly between 20km/h - 40km/h. When I accelerate to about 80km/h, the shaking goes off. What may be the possible cause?

Broken engine mounts? If you put the car in neutral and rev the engine do you feel the shaking? If yes, engine mounts may be the likely cause. If not then it could be front drive shafts.

CR-V RM (2012-2016)

Why does my 2015 CRV continue to fail to start even after new battery replacement and continued dealership service assessment that the vehicle is ok but I am the one that keeps getting stuck with a car that fails to start. The vehicle cannot be relied on.

This issue was in the American made CRVs and I think it has been fixed by a software update, it is a different make all together, engine same size but different make, and different calibration, the Thai made is trouble free, I think some where recalled to replace the fuel pump and that is it

Hi Alan,
For your information, Last year Honda China issued a local recall action for the CR-V Turbo model, to address 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.

We hope this has assisted in your decision making process, Good Luck! Thanks Kiara

Hi Jess,
Although my CRV is barely a week old, I suggest you take it back to your dealership and see if they’re able to help.

Your car is still very new to develop such an issue as oil leakage. Please let me know how you go.

All the best

Jess1987
Jess1987

thanks for your response. its currently at the dealership getting repaired. they tell me the torque seal gasket is damaged/ broken and is causing the leak but they brushed off the reasoning why the oil compartment in the car smells of fuel. i am reading though this seems to be a common problem overseas that apparently has no fix...
