Honda CR-V Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Honda CR-V

The AC compressor may seize resulting in loss of cold air from the AC vents. Often when the compressor fails in the fashion, debris is spread through out the entire air conditioning system resulting in very expensive repairs.

A groaning noise from the rear differential heard while going through turns can be caused by differential fluid break down. Servicing the rear differential will generally correct this concern.

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

All of my cardoors lock/unlock with the driver's side master button except the front passenger door. Anything I might be able to look at before bringing it in and possibly being told it's something very expensive? Thank you in advance for any help.

My front lights light low. I jump started it and run the engine for 30 min but when i turn it off and start it again, it doesn't want to go through again. There 's no indication in my dashboard that my battery is dead. My battery is barely 3 years old. First time to encounter this. I neve...

Was completely dead. Battery was replaced, now it's turning over, but will not start. Radio is not coming on when key is in II position, gears won't shift, miles, oil and gas levels won't display, and the day lights are on, while key is in off position. No fuses are blown that we ca...

I love my car so much I never want to replace it! I haven't seen anything I want more than my CRV. Hate the "new" CRVs after the 2001 redesign. HORRID! The latest redesign is better but now it looks like a station wagon. The '99 upgrade on HP made it nearly perfect. All I'd like is 6 cyl. but I can live with my light truck. I've always done recommended service on schedule and I've never h...

Bought my Honda CRV new in late 1999. Almost 14 years old, now. I have had hardly any mechanical work done outside of normal maintenance and a minor accident repair. My only gripe is that certain dash lights disappear when headlights are on, which I do during daytime hours because of LOTS of traffic around here. Can't see what the time is, whether airvent is open or closed, what gear I'm in, et...

My 2002 cr-v is up to 274,000 miles and runs like new. Great dependable all purpose vehicle. Highly recommended!
