It’s a 21 exl. With the warranty on it I didn’t want issues from that and didn’t want to deal with the hassle of trying to find a different seat, hoping the heated seats still work, etc. I just give up.
This is quite ironic for me as I did the opposite. The seat in my 2016 CRV was like you describe, the RH side squab used to dig into my thigh. When I made a complaint, the seat was swapped out under Warranty because Honda said the the bolster on the squab collapsed, the new seat was no different.I despise how uncomfortable the driver seat is. After 20 minutes of driving I can’t stand it. I bought my HRV because of fuel economy and the cargo space. But after a year of ownership I’m just miserable. So I’m trading it in for a CRV. The seat flat out sucks.
Yep for sure. I have that exact issue. Plus it’s squeaks constantly. Issues started happening after the seat came apart from the rails while driving. So Honda dealer replaced the rails and the lower seat cushion. After that it was even more uncomfortable. This was my first brand new vehicle since 02’.This is quite ironic for me as I did the opposite. The seat in my 2016 CRV was like you describe, the RH side squab used to dig into my thigh.

I find the HRV's seat to be far more comfortable, just goes to show, one size does not suit all.
Or, ask at an auto/boat upholstery shop. They could modify the bolstering in your original seat, to suit your torso for less than the depreciation hit you would take. (Everyone has different proportions after all)Would be cheaper to change out your seat,
Hopefully they won't gauge you 'over invoice'. Many stories about that, these days.I’m just waiting on the crv to be built.
When you get it check everything works. There have been a couple of threads (CNBC, NY Times) on my Google feed that to get vehicles out to customers certain features or equipment have been deleted or disabled due to the chip shortage.I’m just waiting on the crv to be built.
As far as the radiator, it's not a design issue but I'd agree that you have a problem. Most likely the cap or connections on the hose going to the bottle. Could also be a defect in the recovery bottle itself.Full-size spares are going away, some cars don't even have spares, some BMWs I know of, and my Chevy Bolt don't have one, but both have other means ... one has run-flat the other self-sealing tires.
The reason for that is that flats are rare. I have not had one at least in 4-5 years, I can't recall when was the last time I had to put on a spare. Spares take up a lot of room and add weight to the vehicle that you haul around all the time. We are in a who gets the best MPG competitive world. If you have a doughnut, that is good enough.
I don't know about the USA, but here in Australia blow outs are not uncommon even in suburban and country settings. I sure as hell wouldn't want to caught on the "Marlborough Straight" - crossing the Nullabor or the back blocks of Queensland - Western Australia or Northern Territory, then having to drive hundreds of kilometers on a donut to a service station that may not even stock a tire size to suit my vehicle.
Radiator: fill it when it's cold and leave it alone. If it does not leak it's fine. There is no need to keep opening it and checking it.
The radiator system on today's cars are a closed system, as such they are meant to release water into the overflow bottle when the water gets hot and expands. As the engine and the water cools downs the radiator is meant siphon that expelled water back into the radiator, thereby keeping it full.
Mine does not siphon back when it cools down. Now how far below the filler neck the water level is heaven knows, I cannot see any water at all. There has to be to an air leak somewhere in the system for that to happen, whether it be in the radiator itself or a hose or hose connection point, the point is the closed radiator system is not working as it should.

1. The rear cargo cover. Annoying when you have put stroller in.What do you dislike about the HRV?
It feels like it’s going to break because it IS.So, things that I would like to see:
1. An improved cup holder. I don't like how it slides and lifts. The mechanism is plastic and I feel it's going to bust.
2. Automatic rear tail lift gate option including automatic closing function (available on CRV)
3. Optional powered seat. The only options are manual which is annoying when you have two very different sized people driving.
4. The usual "why can't I do this colour with this seat option?" and the "why can't I drive stick in an EX-L Navi?"
I found that when I thought the HR-V was underpowered I was actually babying it too much. Just press the pedal a little more aggressively. It has the power needed.....Start driving it in sport mode
I think this may be spec dependent.Wtf about the cup holding situation?!?!? It’s awful
Air conditioner is too weak for the South! Rough ride Road noise!! Radio system is not for old folks!!What do you dislike about the HRV?
The windscreen is horribly warpedThe Fuel Flap does not unlock with the Central Locking.
No 'Maintenance' mode for the Windscreen wipers, very handy when washing the vehicle or when changing the blades which I tend to do twice a year.
Drivers seat does not go back far or low enough.
Key has to be in the ignition to use the 12v sockets (which is also a plus for me!).
Ice Warning light, only comes on for a few seconds (blink and you'll miss it!), instead of staying on until the Warning is no longer relevant, as with my previous vehicle.
Glovebox is of the 'drop in bucket style' instead of the more useful and easier to use shelf type.
No light in the glovebox, not even on European models!!!!
No sunglasses holder - since rectified!
No cupholders in the rear seat arm rest.
Lack of lumbar support on drivers seat.
No seat back pocket on the drivers seat - since rectified!
