If you go into settings and do a TPS recalibration does the TPS sign go away?
Technician tried to clear all codes and performed factory battery reset but error will not clear. They had to call Honda engineer to figure it out. SRS control unit had to be replaced.

Got my winter tires changed at kal tire today. When I picked up my vehicle I noticed the tech at kaltire turned on the ACC + LKRS for me. I have not yet used these features. Why do they do that? They also turned on the radio which I don't mind.

maybe he was just looking at the features and testing the radio. Or he might have assumed you turned off those features and radio when bringing your car in. Or when you change tires the Tire pressure warning will go off and he was hitting buttons trying to clear it and eventually found it in the dock screen settings.

Thanks! Also there are some dirty footprints at the door panels. I had to wipe them off. They don't seem to care your brand new car like the tech at dealer's place do.

How do you guys like the CRV's suspension ? Is it soft enough to handle the potholes in Montréal? Thanks.

It's not a magic carpet but it's not a boneshaker either.

Agree - if you are coming from a luxury car (lexus, acura, etc...), ride is maybe not as smooth or quiet but this new gen CR-V is leaps and bounds better than previous iterations. The CR-V does have a nice overall ride and I wouldn't consider the Montreal roads a factor in the buying process.

The quality of the tires also plays into overall ride quality. I'm likely going to swap to Micheline LTX in the spring and sell the OEM tires on kijiji.

Even on my 17" lauffen winter tires, The ride is smooth imho.

better than most SUVs. And agreed you cant compare to acuras or lexus. You have to compare to Rav4s, Rogues, etc

Just curious how did you and others here found the ride of 2017/18 Rogue? I will be checking it out this weekend but my heart is set on CRV for now. My cousin recently leased the touring 17 edition and i loved the ride along with inside space.

Never test drove the 2017 Rogue myself. I drove 2016 Rogue and wasnt impressed. Same ride comfort as my 2006 altima at times.

Before settling on a CRV i drove a 2017 Chevy Equinox, GMC Terrain, VW Tiguain.

I liked the CRV interior and ride comfort the most.

I was just thinking about the CR-V test drives I did (yes, multiple.. 3 in total).

I remember the first one was an EX-L and I thought the road noise and ride was not as comfortable as I was expecting. I later test drove an EX and LX over a few weeks (not back to back).

The EX and LX seemed to have less road noise which got me thinking... could the EX-L be running different tires, over inflated tires, or did I just get use to it? Either way, my LX is quieter and it's Canadian made. Not sure about the EX-L assembly location (Canada or US) but was definitely louder. I also don't know how much the LX 17inch tires vs EX 18inch tires played a role.. both sounded the same.

When I picked up my 2017 CR-V EX from the dealer I found the ride very stiff and the tires loud. I checked the tire pressure and the tires were way overinflated. I set the correct pressure for the front and back tires, they have different pressures, and the stiffness and noise went away.

That could be the reason for the noise and stiff ride you had.

Could have been several factors including engine type in the vehicle and could easily be tire brand and/or size. There are different brands of tires on the vehicles, even on the same model. My Touring came with Hankook but there was a touring in the showroom that had Continentals.
