CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

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.

odometer stopped working

BEING AT STOP LIGHT, THE CAR SUDDENLY WAS HARD TO MOVE ON. DIRECTION POWER SYSTEM LIGHT SHOWED FIRST, CAR COULD START MOVING FORWARD BUT THE BRAKE SYSTEM LIGHT, HOLD BRAKE LIGHT STARTED BLINKING ALSO. THEN TRANSMISSION LIGHT ALERT STARTED BLINKING.... FINALLY 3 LIGHTS ALERTS REMAINED ON AND IT WAS HARD TO MOVE THE STEERING WHEEL. ODOMETER OF COURSE STOPPED WORKING AT ALL.

CALLED THE DEALER TO ASK WHAT TO DO AND THEY GUIDED ME TO TAKE THE CAR TO THE DEALER IF I COULD MOVE THE CAR THERE (WHICH I DID). I WENT TODAY TO THE DEALER TO CHECK OUT, AND THE MECHANIC MENTIONED THAT THEY TRIED A CHANGE OF THE SPEED SENSOR (TAKEN FROM ANOTHER CAR) AND THE PROBLEM APPARENTLY WENT AWAY IN A TRYOUT THEY DID. NOW I HAVE TO WAIT FROM 1 TO 2 WEEKS FOR THE NEW PART TO ARRIVE.

I BOUGHT THE CRV ONLY 2 WEEKS AGO AND IT ONLY HAS 802 KILOMETERS. SHOULDN'T I GET A NEW CAR REPLACEMENT INSTEAD OF A FIX?... TOO SOON FOR AN EARLY FIX FOR A NEW CAR ISN'T IT?.... VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING.
