CarComplaints.com Notes: It's rare when a newer vehicle has defect trends. Judging from the identical 2017 model year, the 2018 Honda CR-V is likely to have 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.

problem #2

CR-V EXL 1.5L

Brand New vehicle, while playing a song from my iPod or phone the music will randomly skip just enough to be annoying. Sounds very similar to back in the day when CD's were new and we would play a CD in the car on a rough road. Problem is this is 2018 and this is not a CD. I've experienced it on different songs and different devices. This is not downloaded music either.

Let me know if any of you have experienced this problem.
