Honda no longer has a ‘recommended maintenance time/mileage schedule’. To save you, the customer, time and money Honda created the Maintenance Minder system to show the engine oil life in the information display, letting the vehicles owner know when the engine oil needs replacing and maintenance is due. Your vehicle shows engine oil life as a percentage.

Your vehicle will start with 100% oil life and over time as you put miles on the vehicle it will wind down to 0% signaling the oil life is over.

Anyone who owns 2017-2018 CR-Vs with the 1.5-liter engine should keep an eye on the oil level of their SUV, says Consumer Reports. Pay attention to the corresponding signs: The smell of gas in the cabin, engine blockage or hesitation, or heaters that do not work so well in cold weather. When you experience this, Consumer Reports advises you to take your car to the dealer and say that you know Honda hopes to have a solution in November.

Report the problem to Honda and NHTSA, and if Honda is unable to remedy your situation, you may consider pursuing your state’s lemon law or bringing the automaker to court with small claims, the organization says. Meanwhile, CR-V shoppers might consider waiting until model year 2019 to buy one.
