    Hello all, how's it going? I've just joined after buying a 2007 CR-V 2.2 yesterday, though I won't pick it up until later in the week. I've just come from owning a Jaguar X-Type 2.0d estate for the past two years, which was a nightmare from start to finish. It's now lying on my drive whilst I decide what to do with it after it blew the turbo.....the latest in a long line of faults. Hence, I have gone down the perceived reliability road this time - fingers crossed ...

    Looking forward to joining in, and to getting advice on how to improve my car!

    Welcome to HondaKarma @Mudinureye

    :welcome:

    When you pick up your CR-V be sure to get some pictures and add it to the club garage :garage:

    You aren't the first member to come to Honda because of the reputation for reliability, and I very much doubt you'll be the last! Have a browse around the forum, and then if you have any questions, just ask.

    The I-CTDI (which I assume your CR-V will have, unless it is the newer I-DTEC?) likes regular maintenance and use of the correct grade of oil. As a start, try having a look at these threads. And good luck :Smile:

    Good man, many thanks for the welcome! After the Jag, if all it takes is regular maintenance, I'll be a happy man. I hope to get it tomorrow, and will park some pics when I do :Yahoo:

    Welcome Bertie, the CTDi engine is a good one but as mentioned above, it loves regular oil and servicing. I service mine every 6k or 6 months. Apart from tyres, oil and filters, its never needed anything else. Starts first time and behaves itself fully until I turn it off. Look after it, she will look after you.

    Is she full service history? What mileage?

    Picked it up today, supposedly after a comprehensive service and multi-point check by an independent engineer. Drives lovely, but the air-con isn't blowing cold air, and the "Dual" button on the climate control is flashing. Clutch pedal squeaks as well. Never mind, it is going back next Tuesday to have it all sorted - I'm still happy!

    Let's see if I can park a pic....

    Congratulations Bertie! :BooYeah:
    You've got your CR-V and loaded a picture on the site.
    If you can get her added to the Club Garage, that'll be three out of three today. :Niceone:
