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.

2017 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012017

CR-V EX 1.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 150 miles

transmission stick does not read proper gears

The Gears on the CVT Transmission are not placed properly to wear the stick is. For example. If you are in D (drive), the stick does NOT line up with D and you have no clue what gear your on unless you view the dashboard. The labels must immediately be replaced with proper placements from the driver point of view.
