#304 of 308 2012 CRV Bad MPG
Feb 06, 2013 (9:15 am)
My wife's car is a 2012 CRV AWD. She was getting an average of 27.5 mpg. On the highway it would sometimes be 29 mpg or so and in the city drop to 26. The last two trips in which it was on cruise control and going about 60 it dropped to 24.5 on the highway. Now it has gone down to 23. I went to the dealer and the dealer said there was nothing wrong and it was probably the weather. In Minnesota it gets cold and snowy. However, she had been driving it in colder weather with more snow and ice when it was getting good mpg. It has bothered me enough that I am thinking of getting rid of car and going to Subaru Forester or a Toyota RAV4. Except for the terrible gas mileage the car is great but in todays world mpg is important. The brush off from the dealer and them saying its normal really upset me. No more Hondas if this doesn't get fixed or heal up on its own. I have tried different gas the past two tanks and still no change. Honda sure doesn't live up to its advertising, at least not now. Sorry for the ramble, I am just upset and used this place to vent.

You really think that is "terrible" gas mileage???
The money you will waste in depreciation should you dump that CRV would buy a LOT of gas!!
It IS pretty normal and about the same as our 2011 is getting. Subarus are not known for great gas mileage.
The driver is a major factor on gas mileage too.
#306 of 308 Re: RECALL FOR DOOR LOCKS [snuke]
Feb 18, 2013 (6:34 am)
Has anyone received the recall notice to have the front door locks on their 2012 CRV replaced but has made a conscience decision to not honor the recall (will not have the repairs made)? I am currently not having any problems with my locks and I am fearful that problems may start after having the locks replaced. You see, I had my dealer install a spoiler on my CRV after I purchased the SUV and a nice size dent was accidentally put in the top during installation and no one mentioned it. Only because I am tall that I was able to see the dent and returned it to the dealer to have it removed. So, I am just fearful a technician might ruined the locks further or ruin something else during the process.

If you feel that afraid, why bring your car in for ANYTHING??
Don't let one mishap taint you forever!

There are many things that affect gas mileage. I drive a Toyota Prius and drive about 35,000 miles a year. I watch the mileage constantly and have discovered a few things:
Any wind will affect your mileage unless it is from the rear. A cross wind is about as bad as a head wind.
Not all 89 obtain gas is the same. Price is not necessarily an indicator of good gas. However, buying a name brand usually is a good indicator.
The car has to push through this which eats gas.
Don't idle the car to worm it up. This really eats gas.
When it is cold (below 40 deg.) things are not as fluid
Cold does affect mileage
Hope this helps.
