    Hi Folks..!
    Now the proud owner of this CR-V.. Been wanting one for ages and finally got this one.. Lowish miles and a diesel.. :Grin: Only had it a week and lovin it.. However it's going back to the dealer tomorrow for 2 new front shocks and a clutch master cylinder under warranty.. It has the dreaded creaky clutch and leaking front shocks.. Apart from that a really nice all round motor.. :Smile: Got upgraded Satnav bluetooth system too.. :Grin:

    Welcome.

    The CR-V is a very accomplished car. Be sure to add it to the club garage section.

    Hi Nels...
    It's still in at the stealers.. Hopefully getting it back Thursday.. They were still waiting for one of the struts.. They told me they would not be replacing the dust boots.. so not best pleased.. So I'll be getting new shocks fitted without rubber dust gaiters.. :-( Their also fitting a "pedal box" what ever that is.. I hope she means a Clutch Master Cylinder.. :-/ Will keep you posted tho.. Got a new Aygo to run about in from the dealer so quite enjoying that suprisingly.. It's a nippy wee thing that sounds like 911 when yi rev it..! :-D

    Will it not fail an MOT without the dust boots? I got an advisory because they were starting to split.

    Don't think so.. It passed an MOT just 2 months ago.. The dust covers were in rings around the bottom of the spring too.. I will soon find out when I speak to my mechanic pal.. The stealer assured me it wasn't an MOT failure..

    I also wouldn't have thought so but it's just the advisory I got that made me think it's worth mentioning.
