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

CR-V Touring 1.5L Turbo

  • CVT transmission
  • 249 miles


We bought the CR-V touring March 31, 2017. We didn't have the CR-V a week when we noticed a noise in the front passenger seat. If a person is in the seat, it will make a clicking noise when the Vehicle is taking a right or left turn. The seat is loose. We had the vehicle about a week and went back to the dealer to have accessories added. At this time we told them about the loose seat. They said nothing was wrong with it.

We took the vehicle back about a week ago (around first of July) because it was getting worse. Now they ordered a seat frame. And we have to have the leather seats and cushion taking apart to have the frame changed. We have an appointment later this week to have the work done. This is a inconvenience taking the car back which will take over half a day to fix. It is a brand new vehicle and we should have the seat replaced, not torn apart and fixed.
