Honda CR-V 2020 is a compact crossover class “K1” with front or all-wheel drive. The official debut of the restyled version for the North American market took place in September 2019. It has been redesigned from the ground up, and now features an aggressive and sportier appearance to match its performance capabilities.

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 owner of the vehicle 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% signalling the oil life is over.

How Much Oil Does a Honda CR-V Take?

The 2021 Honda CR-V with the 1.5L 4-cyl engine (engine code L15BE Turbo) takes 3.7 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. The Honda Civic with a 2.0L 4-cyl engine (engine code LFB2) takes 4 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

Anyone who owns 2017-2018 CR-Vs with the 1.5-litre 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 the model year 2019 to buy one.
