5000 miles on our 2012 CR-V LX-Nav. With about 80-90% city driving we are averaging 25.3 mpg, overall. When in the hwy we usually see 30mpg if driving 70 mph, and 34mpg if drive 55-60mph. Seems about right.

You are very lucky! Wish Honda would acknowledge this is what it's supposed to be.
#258 of 309 Computer Controller Problem
May 02, 2012 (2:28 pm)
Right from the get-go, my brand new 2012 CR-V seems to have arrived with some sort of a computer controller problem, specifically with not allowing my iPhone to pair, and also problems with the iMID control functions. Symptoms started as they delivered my new vehicle to me with non-functioning Phone and Setting buttons (no response to the press). Then, problems also surfaced with the steering-mounted Display and Audio Channel toggle buttons (eratic, sometimes uncontrollable, screen movements between settings), in addition to the same eratic control of the Aux iPod control functions through the dashboard. Other functions not working include the customized Wallpaper input and some Back button functionality. Most other computer controlled adjustments (sound system, door settings, vehicle info, etc.) seem to be working properly, although at a very slow response rate like an old 486 PC that receives too many input commands at once and slows to a snails pace. At first, the dealer tried to perform a software re-install - that didn't work. Then, they replaced the Audio hardware unit without solving the problem either. Now, Honda Engineering is in contact with Panasonic to replace the Computer System Controller unit that apparently the phone and audio systems pass through to process command functions (which, by the way, I mentioned to the dealer right off was perhaps the problem - I know a few things about computers). I'm a bit concerned that a CARFAX report will show warranty work right off the bat with this vehicle, and that they're already plowing into the dash with repeated repairs - but not as much as just wanting these problems resolved - I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this same kind of problem with their new, 2012 CR-V, and what was done to resolve the issue - thanks.

We've had our 2012 CR-V EX 2WD since 2/14/12. Our driving is more non-interstate highway than city (including TN rolling hills) - maybe 75%/25%. Our gas mileage on our most recent tank using the ECON button was about 29.3. Our lowest mileage was about 26.9 and, based on what we've seen so far, we fully believe that we'd get (at least) 30-31 when driving pure interstate on a long trip.
If anyone is not doing so, we would definitely recommend that you manually calculate your own gas mileage rather than solely relying on the vehicle display.

Repair Update: 5/7/12 - Honda dealership technician performed all diagnostic tests per Honda Engineering (Reset System, Voltage/Resistance, Wiring/Cable Reel, Audio Unit, Remote Switch, HFL Unit) - finally narrowed down the problem to be a faulty Multi-Info Display Unit (NOT a "Computer Controller Unit" as I was originally told it was called). After replacement, the Phone, Setup (NOT the "Settings" button as originally stated), and Audio/Display functions/operations (Remote and Dash) all checked out OK, and the repair confirmed/closed. Honda DPSM said no other problems like this have been reported in his zone. Nice to have my new vehicle back - Honda provided (upon prompting by the dealership SM) a Goodwill gesture of a free accessory (except wheels) item. Issue closed.
#262 of 309 Hissing noise under hood

I have a brand new 2012 CRV less than 500 miles on it. I hear a hissing noise under hood... really loud when parked in my garage... Any idea what is could be?

Maybe a snake?
Seriously, just open the hood and find out whre it's coming from. It could be something normal. Maybe not? The dealer can check it out for you!

I just bought my crv as well 3 days ago and I have the same problem and asked for assistance from my sales guy. He has no idea as well as to why this feature doesn't work on the iPhone. I figure maybe its an apple thing...
