#1051 of 1090 Honda remote engine starter (2008 to 2010 CRVs)
Sep 28, 2009 (9:58 am)
Checking to see if anyone has installed a Honda branded remote starter?
Reviewing the Honda written installation instructions, this definitely does not seem like a DIY project: http://www.handa-accessories.com/crvelect07.html
However I am also nervous about the dealer technician tampering with a brand new vehicle. Sometimes the technicians at the dealerships are no more qualified than the guy working at Jiffy Lube. I wish Honda would offer this as a factory installed option.
Any feedback on installation or performance of this remote starter would be appreciated. Thanks!
#1052 of 1090 duel cargo shelf for '09 LX
Oct 01, 2009 (11:42 am)
For anyone who's interested: the cargo shelf (as opposed to the retractable cargo cover) is not available for the LX from Honda, to the best of my knowledge. I've searched all over for this shelf which comes standard in the EX. My salesperson assured me twice that I could get the duel cargo shelf as an accessory... Uh-Uh...I finally found it on ebay through a fellow that custom makes them for the LX. It cost me $144 and fits right into the grooves in the cargo area, resting on the hooks. I'm very pleased with it - and just thought I'd pass this along to anyone else with an LX who might want to put in the cargo shelf.
#1054 of 1090 09 cargo tray fit
Oct 05, 2009 (11:26 am)
Just bought an OEM cargo tray for my 2009 LX and was surprised to see how poorly the tray fits. I posted an image to the photo area here under tag CRV Cargo Tray. The tray curls up over the edges instead of laying flat at the border of carpet and side wall, and flops over the plastic parts at the front right and left edges of the flooring, covering what should be exposed and leaving exposed a small part of carpet that should be covered. I've double checked the part number and mine is correct. Is this the normal state of things? I expected a perfect fit, just as I had with my 02 Forester's tray.

If corners and edges curl up, use some heavy books, like phone books, put there overnight.

Thanks. I'm wondering though about the overall fit -- if you look at my posted image here you'll see how the tray doesn't fit at the front at all. I want to know if this is normal. Do you know?

Are you sure your rear seats are slid all the way back?
I think there are some notches in het tray for the tie down hooks located in the cargo area.
Mine seems to fit just fine. It does slide forward and inch or so during a hard stop. But it's not a big deal, and probably wouldn't move if I had a full laod of cargo. Like mentionde above, mayeb it's just warped a little from being rolled up during shipping.
I didn't see a photo posted of yours.
I will say that the floor and cargo mats offered by Weathertech seem to be much better in quality and fit than the OEM and are a little cheaper too.

Where did you buy this OEM cargo tray?
I saw the posted photo and its a poor fit at the corners. Did you check if the seats are moved all the way back as suggested in another post?
Are you planning to buy the dual cargo shelf?

That "notch" in the shape of the tray is to allow use of the cargo hook with a optional cargo net or even light-duty tiedowns. Otherwise, it looks like it fits fine.
Honestly, overall I think you have some fairly unrealistic expectation of how perfectly this is supposed to fit. the cargo hook.
Why did you purchase a black cargo tray with a beige colored interior??? I think they make the cargo tray in both colors, just like the floor mats.
