Info display started blinking on and off for several minutes. Brightness control was jumping all around to different settings. Only way to stop the issue was to stop the vehicle and reset by turning it off. Honda is aware of the issue, but has not issued a software fix despite the problem occuring on multiple CRVs for the last year and a half.

Waiting for a visit from Honda factory rep. Uneven, chalky looking spots in paint on left side of hood near windshield. Local Honda dealer acknowledges paint issues cannot be fixed by detailing/buffing. Believes problem is in the paint itself. Problem to be reviewed by factory rep and (one hopes) repaired (repaint hood?).

Button on shifter that allows you to move from park to R/D reverse/drive broke a small plastic part inside cracked and could not move out of park.was about to have car towed to dealer when I figured out that I could put my finger and slide down the release, then drove straight to Dealer. Service representative told me that this is a common problem with 2017 CRV and of course no recall yet, so a 5 cent piece of plastic totally knocked out my $40,00 Honda, wonder how many people had to get their car towed to dealer for this defect?/

Automatic high beam system didn't work. Dealer corrected the problem. It had something to do with adding fuses during dealer prep while the engine was running. They put out a TSB on how to fix the problem, which they did. It was a matter of pulling a specific fuse, waiting a few minutes, and replacing it. I was at the dealer for about an hour and a half while they figured it out. Traffic did not work in navigation system. Head unit replaced to correct the problem

Door seal misformed - door seal ordered. Infotainment intermittently won't boot with car start requiring car shut off/restarted. Had to complete a soft reboot because infotainment froze. Intermittent warning that power was lost has occurred. Dealer says problem too intermittent to fix. Hot soak fuel type smell occurs after vehicle fully warmed up, shut off for 5 to 45 minutes, restarted. Smell comes through ventilation and is noxious. In certain situations smell present during extended idle when vehicle fully warmed up. Dealer appointment was day temp was -26 air temp and of course I wasn't able to replicate and neither was dealer. Vehicle was remotely started. Within one minute of remote start I entered vehicle and depressed pedal and pushed start button taking vehicle out of remote start loop. I immediately exited vehicle with engine running and the doors locked as they are programmed to when I walk away with key. Upon return engine was running, doors locked but I was not able to unlock door with key fob. Warning on dash "keyless remote not detected". I had to find second key fob to unlock doors. After shutting engine off the first key fob worked again.

Oil fuel dillution problem, vehicle primarily driven highway. Dealer reports no fix at this time for rising oil level other than warranty oil changes. Oil level rising occuring in less than six start cycles and 300 miles. If problem ignored oil level will rise to critical drivability stage we're check engine light, misfire, and engine damage. Oil changes currently needed every 1500 miles. This vehicle is not used in short trips, but trips at 70mph for 25 miles.

In addition, the remote start, locking confirmation beep, and the 'walk away auto lock' feature stopped working. It turned out to that the sensor on my hood latch was failing resulting in the security system thinking the hood was open. Replaced under warranty.
