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.

Brand new car smells of gas, I thought it was on my feet from the gas station but it doesn't go away. Occurs upon start of driving, odor of gas near driver and back seat smells the same. When parked in garage for the day, there is a gas smell lingering. This is very concerning on a new car and has caused headaches and breathing problems. This occurs on a regular basis it is not a one time occurrence, pretty much every time it is driven!!!
