I’m thinking of buying a new Honda CR-V.On a Krlly Bluebook web site I saw owner ratiing. There were 6 out of 72 poor ratingss because of gasoline getting into the oil on the 1.5 turbo engines. The 6 unsatisfied customers indicated that its a on going problem that Honda hasn’t owned up to. Is there any truth to this?

What does it matter ? If you have doubts about a vehicle of any brand or model just look for one that you feel good about.


#6

Look for other brands in the same fourm factor if you don’t feel comfortable with the CR-V

Replacement
Ford Edge
Hyundai Santa Fe
Kia Sportage
GMC Acadia
Chevy traverse

Or even go for Honda pilot if you want to stick with Honda.

Hold off a bit for the new Rav4, no turbo engine, no CVT (except the hybrid).

This is a problem I am now hearing everywhere about the turbo engine in the new Hondas. I spoke to a Honda employee about it and the person said he had not heard about it. That worried me the most.
