The ignition key, when inserted in the driver's (only) door lock, would turn but not operate the lock. Repaired under warranty. The lock is not necessary during normal operation of the vehicle but if the key battery dies, the driver cannot get into the car. If the car battery dies, opening the hood to get access to jumpstart the car becomes problematic.

false error codes being reported due to malfunctioning sensors. Second trip today, a third trip scheduled. Sensors are giving false errors - one is the "engine" symbol (in red), which covers many codes - in this case the code indicated a problem with fuel intake system. Later, a "check fuel cap" error. Apparently they are connected errors. Jan 3rd is the second visit re. this. Not resolved, scheduled for next week for full day to follow up.

Gas odour inside the car. Gas smell inside my garage (no leaks). Gas smell pronounced when idling. Service advisor stated that it maybe related to the exhoust vent in the engine bay. There is a canister at the rear to control gas tank pressure.

Honda Canada took the car to CH and repaired certain manufacturing defects in an attempt to correct the cabin odour problem. So far a custom kit gas been installed to limit engine bay odours entering the cabin, the PCV hose was replaced, the timing case was removed and reinstalled. I've noticed that using Shell V Power 91 octane gas at Honda's suggestion produced immediate results. I also learnt that the 2.4L engine us now produced in Alliston. 100% of these engines are exported to the USA. None are used in the Canadian built LX. After 500kms I still have an intermittent gas odour problem. It is more pronounced with winter gas. Honda's advise was not to use Petro Canada gas and to use Shell 91 every 5000kms to clean the engine. I gave concerns about the longevity of this engine if Honda cannot or will not issue a TSB with a permanent solution . I've read that one CRV owner had his fuel injectors and O rings changed. I'm not a mechanic but ethanol seems to be at the root of the problem. I'm wondering if my engine was built in Alliston.
