2016 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #5

Jan 152017


  • 1,600 miles


On start-up and when backing up intermittently the vehicle has a strong smell of raw gasoline inside the cabin. The car has not been recently fueled (currently has 1/4 tank). Dealership says that Honda has issued no service bulletins or communications for this issue. Online postings, and NHTSA complaints, show other 2016 CR-V owners are reporting the same issue.

The vehicle cabin smells like gasoline while driving. There are no leaks anywhere, this is persistent. I looked on a Honda CR-V forum and saw many people have the same problem. The dealership is unable to fix it, Honda has done nothing. There was a class action law suit filed for this problem

Upon initial start the entire cabin of the vehicle smells of raw gas, coming in through vents. This is especially worse when in reverse such as backing out of the driveway, also this is present when idling in park or drive, such as sitting at a stoplight. The smell is so strong you are forced to open the windows until the vehicle is moving again.

The cabin of my brand new vehicle fills with gas fumes randomly while the engine is running. The fumes fill the cabin while idling, starting, and driving down the road. The fumes are very strong and I do not feel safe driving this vehicle for any distance. The Honda dealership service department and the Honda tech center are aware of the problem but do not have a remedy.
