Reliable Vehicle on The Road

by HonDAK from Dallas | August 04, 2020

Always wanted to own a Honda because if it’s history. Honda was always stated being a reliable vehicle for woman on/off the road. So far I can say feeling pretty safe driving silver fox

Battery discharged constantly

by E. WHITE from LEVITTOWN | July 20, 2020

Overall, excelent vehicle. However, there is a serious problem in the car electrical system for the battery keeps discharging. Although I service it only at the same dealership I purchased from, they cannot find the source of the problem. Neither could Honda Corp. I recently found out that this problem had Bern plaguing Honda since 2015.

Best/worst SUV I owned

by JDAVIS06 from Centerton, Arkansas | July 16, 2020

This was my first ever NEW car purchase. I loved this car...until the issues started to pop up. My infotainment system would shut off after 30 mins or so. The car had to be stopped and turned off for it to function again. Then the screen stopped dimming at night. It was replaced 3 times. The CVT transmission would often malfunction on semi strep inclines like driveways or businesses with steep entrances. It would jolt and choke it’s way up the incline. Once I reached 50,000 miles the warranty was about to expire in no time. My infotainment screen began malfunctioning again. I also learned of the gas mixing in the oil issue at 50k miles. I decided to trade before it became a money pit.

2017 Honda CR-V Overview


The 2017 Honda CR-V is a popular compact SUV that seats up to 5 passengers. It competes with the Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, and Toyota RAV4. This year, it has been completely redesigned.

Four trims are available: the LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring.

The new, fifth-generation CR-V has an elaborately sculpted, rugged-looking appearance. The front grille is a multi-layered ensemble of overlapping chrome accents and hexagonal pattern mesh. The lower fascia has a big-mouth air vent flanked by C-shaped motifs. Sharp creases at the rear fenders along with a unique taillight design add visual interest to the back of the CR-V. Standard features include LED daytime running lights, power side mirrors, active grille shutters, and 17-inch alloy wheels. LED headlights, front fog lights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a power liftgate, and a dual-pipe exhaust system are also available.

Under the hood, the CR-V LX is powered by a standard 184-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, while the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims have a more powerful and efficient 190-hp, turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. Both engines are mated to a continuous variable automatic transmission (CVT) and standard front-wheel drive (FWD) or optional all-wheel drive (AWD). Fuel economy for the 2.4-liter/FWD models is an EPA-estimated 26/32 city/highway. It lowers slightly to a 25/31 mpg rating for the 2.4-liter/AWD models. For the Turbo 1.5-liter models, the fuel economy ratings are 28/34 mpg (FWD) and 27/33 mpg (AWD).

Inside, the CR-V has an updated cloth interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. It has a maximum cargo capacity of 75.8 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. The center stack features a standard multimedia system with a 5-inch display, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to the HondaLink multimedia system that includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, an integrated navigation system, and a 330-watt premium audio system. Automatic climate control, power windows/locks, cruise control, and remote keyless entry come standard. Leather upholstery, power/heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a dual-zone automatic climate control, and rear HVAC are available as well.

Standard safety features include an electric parking brake and a backup camera. The optional Honda Sensing package is a suite of active safety features that includes adaptive cruise control, a blindspot monitoring system, rear cross traffic alert, a collision mitigation system, lane departure warning, and lane keep assist.
