I just bought a 2008 CRV and there is an underseat storage bin. I believe it is under the front passenger seat. Can anyone tell me how to access it? thanks
Looks like they forgot to include the OWNER's MANUAL.I would go back and demand one!!!!

I agree. I can't open the damned thing. It might be a good place for maps that are like books but the driver would have to contort themselves to access it from the driver's seat. It's one of the strange things about the LX. This car could use more storage cubbies.

My EX-L has no Navi. and no storage bin under passenger seat. What I can see is something looks like a bass or subwoofer.

If you have the upgraded bass speakers, the under seat storage is removed and the electronic unit is installed in its place. I have the stock radio system with a under the seat storage tray. Perhaps the upgraded unit or the bass speaker option is on your car.

I think I can help this topic out with some details...
2007 CR-V the trim levels that get the storage; all except Navi equiped...
2008 CR-V the EX-L has had the audio system upgraded to the same that the 07 Navi has, so they dumped the bin and replaced it with the subwoofer. (IMO a great idea.) the other thing that I have personally noticed with my wifes EX 4WD, the bin is a little tricky to open, the latch is very tight (which will be nice in 6 years so that when it gets used more it won't rattle while you drive, hows that for a trade off? tight now and right later vs. good now and loose and rattle later???) the little plug some one else was asking about in their center console... yes its for the audio system but only EX-L get the console, the rest of us have a tray that folds down, the LX has the plug, but no power, the EX has both plug and power on the tray and the EX-L, and EX-L Navi have both the plug & power in the (dark abyss)console cubby. For the AUX to work correctly all you need is a "3.5mm stereo head-phone cable" but make sure it is "male to male."
One other side note, the bin under the seat is a litte tricky to open if you have the all season mats... the lip on the edge of the mat is a little thicker than the factory carpet mats; you have to release the latch then lift the bin a little bit.
hope it helps.

It's so strange that while I did a lot of research and thought I knew the differences in the various 08 CR-V models, I did not notice that there is no power outlet in the car (eg equivalent to a cigarette lighter type)
Oh well, I love the car so I'll get by

I believe newer CR-Vs have at least two power outlets, depending on model. The front outlet is located to the left of the first cubbyhole below the gearshift. The rear outlet is on the left side in cargo area, about gas filler door height.

my 08 crv exl has 3 power outlets, one in the front, one in the storage area in the middle and one in the back cargo area.....I still can't find that darn under-seat storage bin....what is that big black box under the passenger seat?
