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.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2017 Honda CR-V owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Android Auto

"For the first month that I owned the car, when Android Auto was connected, calls kept disconnecting after a minute or so. The problem persisted for the first month. But now it works fine."

Anonymous, BC (2017 Honda CR-V EX 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"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."

Doug L., NH (2017 Honda CR-V)

"Often doesn't sync up with my phone."

Apple CarPlay

"iPhone will fail to connect or will randomly disconnect CarPlay session"

Eric O., WA (2017 Honda CR-V EX-L 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Apple Car Play will not work at times and requires phone to be plugged in again until Apple Car Play works."

Henry V., MD (2017 Honda CR-V EX-L 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This is common with all friend's with CarPlay. It depends on the users iPhone. The infotainment doesn't have enough onboard memory to keep up with CarPlay"

Michael V., TX (2017 Honda CR-V EX-L 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Sometimes it pairs then unpairs. Sometimes it doesn’t work correctly and I have to look at my phone to get messages(always while stopped)"

Jim G., FL (2017 Honda CR-V Touring 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Intermittently stops functioning and claims no phone is connected. Usually I can restart by disconnecting and reconnecting 1 to several times. Occasionally I have to stop, shut off the car for a minute or two, and restart in order to get it to work."

Brian J., VT (2017 Honda CR-V EX-L 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Apple car play must be replugged in any time the car is turned off even if you leave the phone plugged in when restarting the vehicle, sometimes takes several minutes for phone is plugged into USB for Apple Car Play. Can be frustrating"

Anonymous, MA (2017 Honda CR-V EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"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."

"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.

Once, the system reset itself when I applied the brakes. The remaining times, the system reset only after stopping and restarting the engine.

The dash warning light has come on when this happens. I can't be sure, but it seems each time it happened we were driving across a strongly contrasting shadow on a sunny day. I think the sensor read the dark shadow as an obstacle. The dealer says the system is operating properly and claims they are not getting any other similar complaints."

"I live in a northern climate where the outside temperature can reach -4 F but the average is about 18 F. Even when using the factory installed remote engine start for the maximum 20 minutes allowed, the vehicle is still cold when I step inside. After those 20 minutes and another 8 minutes of driving the engine temperature barely reaches half. When I stop at a red light the temperature gauge drops and the car no longer provides warm air. When I arrive at work after 10 minutes of driving the car still has not warmed up and the temperature gauge is about one quarter. The heater system cannot clear all the windows of frost even after I have scraped them. Only on drives greater than 20 minutes in length does the car produce sustained heat."

"Engine takes forever to heat up enough to blow warm air. then once engine temperature indicator reaches normal, the air will blow warm. HOWEVER, when you slow down, brake for a stop light, etc., the engine temperature plummets (doesn't even show - it drops completely off the grid so it looks like the car isn't running) and the heated air becomes cold. I have driven 20+ miles, after the car had warmed up, with the cold air blowing. This happens in the winter and I can tell you that this isn't fun in MN winters. I have seen several articles on the internet about this... https://www.carcomplaints.com/Honda/CR-V/2017/AC _heater/heat_not_working_properly.shtml The situation is bad enough that I would not purchase this car again - or take it for free - with this issue. Winter lasts a LONG time in MN. The other issue I have had it is you turn the front defroster on, ALL the side windows get foggy. If you turn the front air vents on and point to the windows, the front window gets foggy.

"At low Canadian winter temperatures the engine does not warm up in city driving. In fact, at stoplights the temperature gauge will drop off the bottom stop. Car had recall intended to ameliorate this problem with no success. The dealer refuses to accept that it is a problem (“This is normal.” Though no other of my vehicles has shown this.) in fact, at last investigation of the issue the dealer charged me a fee for analysis rather than making it a warranty issue. 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. I have heard nothing official and the dealer has not acknowledged it, I have changed dealers for service due to my loss of confidence in a dealer with a formerly excellent reputation."

Refrigerant leaks

"A/C quit working approximately 18 months after purchase of vehicle. Dealer found refrigerant was low and did not find an obvious leak, so recharged the system with a dye that is supposed to make a leak easier to detect. No charge for this service. 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. The A/C seems to be working normally, based on just a few warm days' trials. I'm still monitoring the performance when the weather permits."

Don C., OH (2017 Honda CR-V EX 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Between 12-18 months of ownership, the A/C started to make a whining-type noise, and ultimately stopped producing any cold air at all.
