      The automatic gearbox isn’t made by Honda it’s made by ZF, my 2006 Honda ishift isn’t so reliable but Honda cvt are a better gearbox

      The 9 speed ZF auto is only on the diesel I believe. The petrol gets the old 5 speed box. New ones after 2018 on the new shape are CVT

      Mat should be hired by Honda (or any car company) to test the cars, before their cars go into production.

      Honda CR-V has a great engine range!!!
      1.6 diesel turbocharged
      1.6 diesel twin turbo charged
      2.2 diesel turbocharged
      2.0 petrol non turbo. Which if you ask me is the best!!!!!
      What more range would you want??? Plus it’s a very very reliable car! Cheap to maintain too.

      The new Honda CR-V, is plagued by a potentially dangerous engine problem that could cause the small SUVs to lose power or even stall, petrol is diluting the oil. There is a huge class action in America it effects the 1.5 turbo petrol.

      Hope this ones infotainment system actually works, traded my brand new CR-V less than six months in. Sometimes the system wouldn't even turn on, just a black screen. I see they didn't move the USBs from inside the center console; heaven forbid you actually put stuff in there. Found it a hassle to plug and unplug the USBs while driving; when the unit kept saying cable disconnected... When it clearly hadn't. Lovely car otherwise, as long as you literally only use it for driving to places you know. I do miss the space!
