Frustration was the only thing heating owners of the 2017 Honda CRV during this cold winter as their Honda CRV heater problem has become the top complaint trending on CarComplaints.com and numerous automotive sites.
Consumers claim their 2017 CRV does not blow hot air while idle. Only while the car is in motion does the heat begin to work; however, even once completely warm, the temperature gauge could drastically drop when the car is not actively moving, according to a complaint from CarComplaints.
The Honda CRV heater problem could be caused by a clogged or defective heater core or a busted thermostat according to HondaProblems.com. Still, consumers have returned to their dealerships multiple times for the same problem, even after a thermostat replacement. In many circumstances, the dealerships have reported everything was operating normally and/or there was nothing further they could do.
In the meantime, the Honda CRV heater problem has caused certain drivers to be unable to generate enough heat to defrost windows in low temperatures. Some owners have gone as far as keeping an adapter and hair dryer in their car for their safety in cold climates.
If your car is experiencing a Honda CRV heater problem, take your car to the nearest Honda dealership as soon as possible for warranty repair. It is imperative that you retrieve repair invoices from each visit. Every invoice should display mileage, days out of service, the complaint, and the fix. If they claim the HVAC system is operating normally, take the service adviser on a test drive and see if you can duplicate the issue for them.
