nothing but problems so far

2013 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


6 month old crv doesn't start when its cold. One dealership checked it and said everything was ok. I went to a different dealership when it happened again and they didn't even check it, the guy just leaned back in his chair and said "that's normal, the crv has a small battery". The vehicle also sits lower on the left side than the right side. The dealership looked at it and told us something was definitely wrong with it. They took hours trying to figure it out then told us it was normal when they couldn't find the problem. So far we've had the CRV for 8 months and its been in the dealership several times. The body panels weren't even aligned properly when we bought it.

Best Features

Rides nice, fuel economy is good, AWD is great in the winter, enough room for camping gear.

Worst Features

The headlights need to be improved, the bright lights are horrible. The left side sits lower than the right side (the dealership said this is common in all crv's but so far I haven't been able to find another like ours). The stereo is no good at all. Goes through 2/3L of oil between changes. Does not start in the cold weather due to a small battery. Could use a power adapter in the rear hatch area, a lighted glove box would be nice. Could use better wipers.
