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

Jan 252017

CR-V EX-L 1.5L-Liter

  • CVT transmission
  • 100 miles


Every time I close the driver's side window and drive a short distance, the window will suddenly make a quick cracking sound, similar to the sound of a pebble would make if it hit the window, I noticed that a tiny area of the rubber molding at the top of the driver's side window inside the car has become slightly unglued, but the molding doesn't appear to be pressing on the window. I am taking the vehicle to a Honda dealer in a few days and hope they can repair this. When I spoke to the service manager at the Honda dealership by phone, he said he's never heard of a problem like this before. The brief cracking sound made by the window is quite startling. I am concerned that this may be a safety issue.
