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.

  • Automatic transmission

We have had the low air pressure light come on several times and when checked, the tire pressures were OK. This is so annoying! Our dealer here in Lincoln, Nebraska has not been able to help us.

The tire light comes on occasionally, so I stop and have a tire shop check and adjust. My dealership is Honda Henderson NV....bad dealership...every time I bring my vehicle in they sabotage it.

I now have 10, 032 miles on my Honda CRV 2017. 2 months after I bought it, it keep showing tire pressure monitor problem. I've taken it to the dealer several times, each time tires checked no issues, couldn't find anything. It shows the error every few weeks. Happened again last week and .they showed me a nail, $200 tire replaced, 3 days later same warning light on dash!!!! This morning my car started flashing a new light: (Now I am looking at flashing warnings on my dash, Driver assist systems cannot operate: radar obstructed, I pulled over - nothing. Again I reset the screen and it came back on later in the morning. Ughhhh No recalls showing but I see others have the same issue. VERY, VERY annoying, by a $30k+ vehicle to have this keep happening with no resolve is TOTAL BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I keep checking the tires, but shouldn't have to do this weekly... Anyone else have the same issues???

Just bought a brand new, new model year CR-V. Annoying or possibly troublesome issue: "Tire Pressure Monitoring Problem" indicator warning flashes on the dashboard. It doesn't necessarily indicate a tire pressure problem. The message itself infers the problem is the tire pressure sensor system itself that is problematic. The issue is somewhat subtle so it did not rear its ugly head during a test drive. In fact, I don't think it happens unless there is some sort of distinctive pattern that is executed. However, I was able to trigger the faulty problem just by starting the engine and let it sit idle for a minute or two. I am able to reproduce the issue consistently.

I brought the car into service. Service technician was understandable, but the head mechanic was incredulous. I demonstrated the issue and was able to reproduce in front of his eyes. His observation was that I slightly pressed the brakes and released while the car was still going some unknown system check which caused this glitch where the TPMS light went on. What a technical moron!!!! Sorry, perhaps his mechanical skills are okay, but his electronic/computer know-how was severely lacking.

I am hoping this is a software bug and a patch update will be available soon. Currently, I have the car in the care of the dealership service center. If they find nothing, I am frustrated enough to call B.S.
