Hi all, just found these photos from other forum.

    Does anyone know when the 2008 CRVs will arrive at the dealers? (Dealers tell me they don't know!). Also, anyone know of any significant changes in design for new models. Thanks!!!

    I read in one of the "other' CRV forums that the 2008CRV EXL will now be standard with the 8way power drivers seat and something else (I don't remember what)(possibly stereo upgrade?)

    Maybe it's Bluetooth. That's the only thing I wish it had now...

    It's also coming with dual zone automatic climate control.

    Thanks! What's your source (i.e., is there more info somewhere online that I haven't found yet) And do you know when the new models will become available?

    It's in the manual copy that was posted. I can't understand why they haven't included bluetooth as it seems everything is set up for it.
  • thegraduatethegraduate Member Posts: 9,731, check out rumors and news.

    Honda has released all of their info on the feature-updates for 2008 models. And no, I'm afraid I don't know when we'll see them!

    I don't get the lack of bluetooth either. Seems like a fairly simple addition and it seems like most new models are coming out with this feature these days. I love mine on my TL and it really irks me that the CR-V doesn't have itt because we're seriously considering one...

    I am unpatiently waiting for them to arrive. Dealer tells me that they don't have a date. I don't know if I should believe them. Please let me know if you have an idea when they will be in the showroom. Thanks

    I guess it must be aftermarket, but I saw a CRV on the lot with bluetooth in it. It was a button with a picture of a phone on it, just to the left of the steering wheel. Just a fyi.

    I am very interested in buying a 2008 Honda CR-V towards the end of this year (by 12/31). I am torn between the 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive version. Obviously, I get better gas milage with the 2 wheel drive CR-V. I would appreciate feedback from you folks that currently own the 2008 CR-V and your recommendations and viewpoints. Thanks in advance for your help on this topic!

    The mileage difference is small imo, the differential oil will needed changing, and of course the 4-wheel version costs more. But . . . if you occasionally drive in nasty weather, the extra traction is well-worth the modest extra cost.

    does anyone know where the 2008 cr-v will be built? is it a japan majority?
  • axsomaxsom Member Posts: 11
    Don't know if you have gotten info from another source on this yet, but I'm in Bloomington, IN and our Honda dealer is showing an '08 in their inventory on the website - Black Nighthawk Pearl. They must have it on the lot or they most likely wouldn't have listed the color.

    I know the cr-v is supposed to be made in Ohio and Japan, But all the cr-v's I looked on here in California were made in Japan. I wonder if it is possible to order one made in the states?
  • txtwintxtwin Member Posts: 3
    Don't know the validity, but the salesman this week told me that the ones made in Japan came here, and the ones made in Ohio go to the UK. Doesn't make sense to me, but that's what he claimed.

    ;) Dude this is a no braner
    Let me tell you, I own a CRV-LX 2007 with AWD, it is a HELL OF A CAR!
    the AWD rips thru snow, rain and whatever else you find on the road.
    the AWD option is AWESOME, get it you will not regret it.
    Think of the SAFETY factor, when you add it at the pump it pays.

    So I've had the car for less than 2 months and I've had to put air in the tires 4 times. The indicator light comes on and sure enough,the tire pressure in all 4 tires (cold) is 29. It is VERY annoying. The dealer said that the light "is very sensitive" but why do the tires not keep inflated longer (I do not drive much ) . I drove my other car for ten years and I can't remember inflating the tire pressure more than very occasionally. Perhaps not a good thing but geesh,this is ridiculous. So is it just my car or are others having the same problem?
  • lzclzc Member Posts: 483
    I have no problems with the TPMS on my '07 CR-V. Your indicator light should come on only when tires are "significantly" underinflated, not 1 pound under. Is your tire gauge accurate?

    Honda, and others, have had some problems with early TPMS units. Have the dealer test the system, rather than rely on, I assume, just a comment by someone.

    How much air do the tires actually lose? If you're filling to 33 psi and they're down to 29 psi after a month (at the same temperature), you've got a tire/rim problem, although that sounds unlikely on all 4 tires.
  • diesellabsdiesellabs Member Posts: 8
    I wonder if outside air temp is contributing to the "problem," as in inflating on a warmer day and (this being winter) and then registering a lower pressure on a much colder one?

    I always try to check mine early in the morning, preferrably before the sun has had a chance to warm the tires...I can get a pound or two difference if one side of the car has been in the sun versus the other.
  • mycle1000mycle1000 Member Posts: 10
    just took posession of an '08cr-v ex. when delivered the tire pressures were low; in fact one was under 25psi, when the door sticker says 30psi cold. none of these set off the monitor.
    and so much for the pre-delivery checklist!
  • hockeyfoolhockeyfool Member Posts: 30
    Agree that the low pressure should have been caught during the dealer inspection, but the monitor is not necessarily faulty. Per Honda specs, the TPMS shouldn't go off unless the pressure falls below 20% of rated pressure or 24 psi. TPMS is intended to inform drivers of "significant" low pressure, not just "somewhat" low pressure.

    Not much - a refresh of the front end.

    "Comparing the 2010 model with the current CR-V, it appears that Honda has changed the grille, bumper and front fascia — a "freshening," in the parlance of the product development specialists — and little else."

    Looks like it will get turn signals in the mirrors, and a 18" wheels as an option or standard on the higher trim. I'd anticipate the LX still haivng 17's.

    Summary - expect a slightly stiffer ride, without any real imrpovement in handling, and missors that cost a fortune to replace if damaged.
  • malachai1malachai1 Member Posts: 40
    That's not the one coming to the states.It's japan ,We will not see those headlight nor the turn signals.

    We will all know in about a month or so, but stating one thing or the other for the 2010 CR-V is a non starter at this time.
