It is just perfect for us
It’s been 5 weeks and almost 1000 kms since I got the car. I have the black color but looks gorgeous. This is my second Honda. I don’t drive the car at enthusiasts speed but safe speeds and never found the engine/transmission under spec. Android Auto works like a dream. Camera is good as well as the emergency braking facility. The safety specs are really good. I am hoping for a few great years of good motoring. Will let you know otherwise.
Great vehicle, sneaky Honda service and center display issues
Bought my 2020 CR V in 2020.
I had the central display unit replaced under warranty and still having the same problems or worst than before. Honda service people at Kirrawee said they haven't got any upgrades or recalls from Honda. This is very frustrating and dangerous, as the centre display unit keeps changing the program, brightness, display from radio to GPS and back again, last week after aI finished a phone call, the centre unit went crazy again and then started to call my last phone call by itself!
Lucky it was one of my colleagues, if i...
t was a customer it would've been very embarrassing! Another problem is regarding the short service intervals, where it's advertised that it should be every 12 months or 10,000 kilometres, I recently had the car computer tell me to service it within 5,800 kilometres. The computer is now saying the next service will be round 6,000-7,000 kilometres! This is going to be a very expensive exercise! If Honda know that this is regularly required, much more frequent than the advertised and recommended schedule, Honda should either reduce the service cost or extend the free service for at least 5 years! Other than that, this is a great vehicle!
They know this model has problems
Brand new car purchased Aug 2018 Honda CRV 2018 AWD
Problem 1, head unit has a mind of its own, when driving on a sunny day if the head unit gets a lot of heat from the front windscreen, the unit will start making adjustments by its self as if someone is touching the touch screen. Honda don’t have a fix for it. Honda have replaced it twice, but they are just replacing it with the same type of unit so essentially replacing the faulty units with other faulty units. It is winter at the moment so all is good, but come summer I will be back again g...

Got the 2020 Vti-S 2020 model from Honda Essendon. I love the space it has compared to other competitors within its range. Loaded with all the safety features and aesthetically beauty from the inside. The exterior design is not the best which I believe the CX-5 is better. Overall, it's not to bad with the comfort and practicality it provides.
I picked up my new CRV on 30 June 2018 from Suttons Homebush Honda. On 31 July 2018, I have the 1 month/1000km service done.
At 4200km, “Engine Oil Replacement” warning signal appeared on 10 May, 2020, i have to have my 1st year car service put forward on 10 May 2020. It costs $295.
On 18 May 2020, just 8 days after so called “first year service” done, a “check tyre pressure” warning signal appeared on dashboard while I was driving. I have four tyres pressure checked next morning when the tyres were cold, found tyres pressure were close...to normal. On 29 May 2020, noticed the AC blow out warm air from the vent, I went to Suttons Homebush Honda for checking out the reasons but was told I need to book in for service . On 4June, 2020, Honda service department guy used the thermometer to check the temperature of the AC, come back and show me the temperature is 20 degree . He tried to convince me there is nothing wrong with the AC. But I suspect there may be something wrong with the AC condenser fan. Where can I get help?

Perfect choice I have made! Ever!
I didn’t plan to buy the CRV. Simply because I didn’t like the design & also I wanted to have a 7 seater like Kia Sorento. But as soon as the CRV new design came out, which is MY18 look, it definitely caught my eyes.
I did a lot of research & test drive different cars. I ended up at Honda for a closer look through the CRV.
because it’s the MEDIUM SUV, I can’t fit my big baby pram in the boot. So it was a biggest disappointment for me at first.
I looked through inside & out. And then I was thinking Forget about the boot size, I can live wit...
