Honda CR-V: Driving Preparation / Exterior Checks

Honda CR-V 2017-2024 Owner's Manual / Driving / Before Driving / Driving Preparation / Exterior Checks

  • Make sure there are no obstructions on the windows, door mirrors, exterior lights, or other parts of the vehicle.
    • Remove any frost, snow, or ice.
    • Remove any snow on the roof, as this can slip down and obstruct your field of vision while driving. If frozen solid, remove ice once it has softened.
    • When removing ice from around the wheels, be sure not to damage the wheel or wheel components.
  • Make sure the hood is securely closed.
    • If the hood opens while driving, your front view will be blocked.
  • Make sure the tires are in good condition.
    • Check air pressures, and check for damage and excessive wear.
  • Make sure there are no people or objects behind or around the vehicle.
    • There are blind spots from the inside.

NOTICE

When doors are frozen shut, use warm water around the door edges to melt any ice. Do not try to force them open, as this can damage the rubber trim around the doors. When done, wipe dry to avoid further freezing.

Do not pour warm water into the key cylinder. You will be unable to insert the key if the water freezes in the hole.

Heat from the engine and exhaust can ignite flammable materials left under the hood, causing a fire. If you've parked your vehicle for an extended period, inspect and remove any debris that may have collected, such as dried grass and leaves that have fallen or have been carried in for use as a nest by a small animal. Also check under the hood for leftover flammable materials after you or someone else has performed maintenance on your vehicle.
