    Nobody remember how long it take to get heat from 1.5/1.6L engines from the 80s are 90s in deep winter?

    Now it's worse with fuel/emission saving ECU that causes oil dilutions in Honda's 1.5T. This was suppose to be improved by the oil dilution fix but you just can't fight physics.

    Engine is too efficient. Creating too much movement and not enough waste heat.

    In any other country but Canada, this would be what you pay extra for.

    Not defending Honda at all, but the 1.5L in my Civic heats up just fine and it was parked outside all winter too since the summer car is in the garage.
    Edit: mine is a 2018

    Our 2016 crv pumps out heat no problem during winter, dodged a bullet by a year if it's 2017 onwards?

    I'm confused... How is the 60's requirement to be able to defrost windows the problem with honda's ability to defrost windows?

    Like - sub liter engines in canada can make it happen? Why can't a turbocharged 1.5L?

    Idk if I agree with that, anecdotal evidence from friends cars (1987 civic, 1984 scirocco) says otherwise. Those cars pumped as hot or hotter air out of the vents than any of us that had newer ones with bigger engines. Maybe cause they were always revving the tits off them?

    No issues with my wife's 16 Civic touring with the 1.5t. Heats up nicely.

    I think I found the problem.

    An Automobile Protection Association survey of 152 Honda drivers, mostly from Quebec,
    They're just complaining so the federal government buys them all Tesla's.

    Honda should just issue a TSB that instructs CRV owners to stop driving like gaping vaginas then.

    Parents have a 2019 CRV, three of my friends have 2018 CR-V's, and I used to have a 2017 Civic with the 1.5T. None of them had/have problems with heat in the winter. Seems to be consistent with others in this thread. Hard to believe it's that widespread of an issue.

    Anecdotal evidence to pile on

    My aunt had one, complete laundry list of issues with the engine and definitely had the “no heat” issue. After having it repaired several times she traded it in after 2 years for a Tacoma.

    My uncle, her husband, has a shop and he says he’s had several people come in with the issue. No heat.

    Dunno if it’s as widespread as claimed, but definitely non zero.

    Common problem.

    People start the car in the cold and fully blast the heat. The best way to get heat and maintain it is to keep it on cold until the needles starts moving.

    My experience with 4 cyclinder aluminum block engines.

    My truck which is only a 2.7L has a high idle function on cold start that last much longer than a normal car.

    Also - people should put cardboard to block the rad. Sure it’s 2021 and cars shouldn’t need it, but they do.
