CarComplaints.com Notes: It's rare when a newer vehicle has defect trends, & the 2017 Honda CR-V has at least two — overfilled oil levels with a gas smell, & heat not working.

Both problems affecting the Honda CR-V's 1.5L "Earth Dreams" engine appear to be related to cold-climate regions.

CR-V owners report overfilled oil levels due to fuel in the oil, & sometimes a gas smell in the cabin. That problem appears to be related to fuel injection which Honda hopes to fix via a software update. Honda so far has only conducted a recall in China & a "product update" in Canada.

CR-V owners also report no heat even after warming up their CR-Vs for 30 minutes — not even enough to defrost the windshield. So far, there has been no fix from Honda for this issue.

Dealer tried to make delivery of the vehicle to me with the drivers seat bolster deflated and misshapen. Went home with loaner while Germain Honda tried to figure it out. A day later they called and said they needed to order parts which could take a while so they gave me the car back. A week later the parts came in and they took it for 3 days. When I went to pick it up the beautiful light tan interior had black grease handprints all over it. They cleaned it up at my insistence.
