Road Test

Honda has redesigned its segment's best seller CR-V, and the result is better fuel economy, improved safety, sharper handling, and an upgraded interior.

The CR-V is small enough to navigate through tight parking lots, yet roomy enough inside to comfortably fit five adults. Despite a modest growth in dimensions, including two inches added to the wheelbase, the CR-V actually weighs about 75 pounds less than before and still manages to be significantly quieter and convey a substantial feel. We tested a base LX and the more mainstream EX. Both achieved impressive fuel economy of 27 and 28 mpg respectively in our testing, a new best for the class, excluding the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. As a bonus, the turbo makes for a peppier drive.

"Android Auto support is horrible in general. It only barely worked even when it did work at all, and then suddenly stopped working completely (software update?), generating false error messages (phone not connected when it was, etc). GPS maps don't appear on the console at all, etc. We basically consider that this stereo does not support Android Auto at all."

"Apple Car Play is undoubtedly the most FRUSTRATING issue with owning this car. 1. Sometimes the unit does not recognize a phone is plugged into it. You have to plug & unplug multiple times. 2. The infotainment unit often freezes and there is NO way to control ANYTHING (you can't adjust volume, change audio source, etc.). 3. In fact, when this happens, the volume sometimes becomes unbearably loud and the only way to get the volume to change is by SHUTTING OFF THE CAR. Honestly, the volume will surge to deafening levels and you have no choice but to pull over and turn the car off. This is both a MAJOR safety concern, along with a tremendous nuisance. I'm certain I've caused hearing damage because I've been unable to pull over and forced to ride in a cabin with maximum volume levels. 4. At times, the display unit for the infotainment system just goes black. Then you have no control of anything. Again, the only way to resolve the issue is by shutting the car off and starting over. 5. Most annoyingly, Honda is providing NO solutions for this known issue and continues to blame Apple. In my opinion, for the safety factor alone, I wish the National Highway Safety Board would become involved."

Display screen goes blank

"When the display goes blank all information is unavailable and can only be restored by shutting down the vehicle and restarting the engine. Hardly an option when you are on the highway or interstate. Honda tried to update/reset the system twice and has yet to have a permanent solution.

"My 2017 Honda CRV has been having problems with the Display Audio/Information screen. Sporadically it will flash with various displays with no control of the screen using any of the icon function switches. None of the controls work and the screen will go dim (night mode) and then bright again. The only solution is to stop, turn off the car and restart. The car has 45,000 miles on it and was purchased new in the Spring of 2017. I’ve experienced this for the last 3 or 4 months. Today I took it to the Honda dealer and had it repaired. Of course, it was out of warrantee and the cost was around $70 for the “software upgrade” – which I understand was accomplished via internet. My concern is with the concept that somehow, I managed to corrupt the Honda installed software and therefore should be liable for its restoration. This appears to be a built-in defect, designed, approved, and installed by Honda during the car’s manufacture. Why isn’t Honda liable to repair or replace an inherent defect? Software doesn’t go bad, get worn out, or require periodic servicing like mechanical parts. It is installed and doesn’t need attention unless the manufacturer alters subsequent versions that has an interface with the other auto systems or the original version, installed by the manufacturer is defective from the moment it rolled off the line. Mileage or length of ownership for an existing manufacturer installed defect should not be the responsibility of the owner. The owner has no control over whether the software works properly or not. The manufacturer does. I emailed CR about the problem."

"The three problems with the screen are hard to discuss individually. But typically, the screen brightness selector would all of sudden appear on the screen without any prompting. At that point, the touch screen would freeze and none of the buttons would work. Then the screen would it would go dark. It happned rather randomly, but seemed to be happening more often until we took it in several months ago. At that point they gave us what they called a hard reinstall. Since then it hasn't happned as rarely, if it all. To fix it all you have to do is stop turn off the car and restart it. Not very handy, especially on the crowded highway when you are relying on the navagation system. At the begining of the problem, they told us that it had something to do with the Apple Bluetooth interface and the company is worrking on a fix. They started telling this to us many months ago and as recently as last month, the update was not available. Their suggestion was to use ApplePlay vs. bluetooth to connect with Apple devices. When we first encountered the probelm, they told us that they could not replicate it so they couldn't do anything about it. The next few times it happened we took videos. That got their attention. They kept it for a week, but did not resolve the issue. we asked for a new system they said no beacuse it was a software problem, and had nothing to do with the hjardware. Eventually they did the Hard-restart i disussed earlier. It ahs been much better. Also, we took it in before te warranty expired, so if when they find a fix, it will still be covered under the warranty. - That's what they told us anyway."

Eventually my local guy confessed that the system is based on apple os5. The current os at the time of sale was 7, just changing to 8. The car was born 3 generations behind. Also - there was a phantom power drain that would run the batter down and keep the car from starting. And finally . . . dealer confessed that most cr-v models had weak and/or defective batteries to begin with. IMO? With this system, Honda was trying to be more like a high line car in its feature offering but really couldn't deliver"

Furthermore, due to mistakes up the supply chain, a replacement compressor was currently unavailable, but would perhaps come in after six weeks or so. I was required to pay for the compressor and other parts in order for them to place an order for them. The parts may come by the end of summer.

Honda needs to, but is unwilling to, step up to the mark. It tarnishes the maker’s reputation in my eyes. Also, from the net I understand there is a secret warranty extension for engine failure due to the associated oil dilution with fuel.

Dealer asked that I run the A/C as much as possible so they could reexamine for traces of the leak, which they hoped to do before weather washes off the dye. However, the weather turned unusually cold here in the fall, and was warm enough to run the A/C only a few times before winter set in. Now that spring is coming, there still have been few warm days, and I suspect any residual dye would have been washed away by now.

"Several times, the adaptive cruise control has disabled itself while driving. When this happens, related functions such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, collision warning, etc. are also disabled, and the yellow (not red) brake system trouble light comes on. Once, the system reset itself when I applied the brakes. The remaining times, the system reset only after stopping and restarting the engine. Honda technicians were unable to replicate the problem, probably because it happens rarely, and so it has not been fixed."

"This is a coy of an email I sent to my dealer. Please see attached notice from Consumer Reports re Honda CR-V 2017 & 2018 turbo engine leaking gasoline into the oil. As you can see in the article Honda knows about this and has commenced a repair campaign. Found this out over the weekend and checked my oil on Sat AM without driving Fri PM and the oil level was well over the max on dip stick and it had a slight odor of gas. I checked it again Sun AM after driving Sat PM and the oil level was over an inch above the max level with a strong odor of gas. I am concerned about driving it because there is undoubtedly a chance of a fire not something I want to experience while on the road. I have an appointment for service tomorrow Monday at 10:30. I recently had it in for recall service and they found no issues otherwise in the regular inspection. After they serviced the car without changing the oil by my request, they said no problem with the oil. I took my car to a friend who helped change to oil so that we could measure the amount or oil came out. The amount was over 5 quarts and the amount that is called out as full in the Honda manual is 4 quarts so there was at least 1 quart of gasoline in the oil. There is now a class action law suit against Honda for this issue. I did contact CR customer service by email some time after this and asked if CR had any new information about this problem but I never heard back from them. PLEASE NOTE, I no longer have the 2015. I tried to go back and correct my reply but was not allowed to do so."
