@mankhan -

I don't see that anyone else has experienced the issues that you're having. I know that my outside temperature display will be off when I first start the CR-V, but quickly adjust as I drive. I also know that the display in my CR-V is off by about 3 degrees, and I know there is a way to adjust it, but I haven't taken the time to do it yet.

That your outside temperature gauge isn't working as you expect is not a defect, even though it appears to be a major issue for you.

I don't know why your back glass broke, and it's not something that I remember reading about before, so it's probably not a systemic problem with the CR-V.

The suspension problems you mention may be damage due to the road conditions where you drive, since there haven't been a lot of complaints that I've seen about that kind of problem.

And the thread started with information from Honda about how the outside temperature gauge works, not as a complaint about it not working.

So, I'll repeat what I said before...

I'm sorry that your Honda doesn't meet your needs or desires.

And I hope you're able to find a vehicle that meets all of your needs.

Rac...

Thank you sir. Well the point is that temperature gauge does not work when you take your vehicle from cold climate (like basement parking in my case) to hot climate (outside city roads) the condition is that you must have to drive above 30km/h for at least 3 minutes and then for each minute of 30km/h driving one has to maintain that speed to get each degree rise in temperature per minute and due to this complex illogical temp reading system, the sensor is unable to update the temperature outside. It works only when outside is cold and where the car is parked is in hot climate. Now such kind of logical can work only in cold countries like Europe or most part of US and Canada but not in Middle Eastern Countries. My point is that Honda should correct its logic in tempertaure reading system while sending models to this part of the word like other car manufacturers are doing. That is all. Hope I am clear now.

I understand your complaints and concerns, and I'm sorry that your CR-V doesn't meet your needs in terms of the outside temperature gauge.

But complaining about it here on a website message board that is not run by Honda is not going to help you.

If you were in the US I would suggest you contact American Honda Motor Corporation, the US division of Honda. Is there a similar Honda division in your country? Have you contacted them about the problem?

Thanks for understanding. Yes peprhaps this thread should be in Issues and complaints! What's wrong with my CR-V? forum where there are 518 threads. Wow i just noticed that today and i assume thats too much of complain for Honda USA. Secondly i challange each and every owner of cr-v having 2007 or 2008 models that to park there cr-v in colder temp then outside temperature such as a garrage or basement parking overnight, for example in Las Vegas city during summer such as month of July and then move it out at noon time next day and just room around in city where there are many signals, such as STRIP (main Las Vegas Boulevard) and dont touch any highway/freeway and then let me know if there outside temperature readings comes out to be correct within a few minutes or not. This is simple test I am offering. What i am facing is not a fault, it is inbuilt anatomical/structural/logical default by birth issue in outside temperature sensor developed by Honda and I hope they would have fixed that in later models.

I am living in Saudi Arabia, what Honda can provide here, It can only come true in a dream. Honda is the most low selling car company in Gulf. You can check that with Honda Japan itself. Even Hyundai is doing much better in car selling. I am living in Saudi Arabia since 1992 and since then I owned Honda and keep on changing, as one has to see many factors before buying a car here as lots of competition as car companies from arround the glob are selling there cars in Saudi Arabia but I always liked Honda but this 2007 model disappointed me, just because of my luck, perhaps.

mankhan, I again suggest that you contact your local Honda corporate office and talk to them.

Your description of your driving conditions, when compared to the information from Honda, suggests that in your driving conditions your outside temperature gauge may never display an accurate outside temperature.
Quote:
• If the measured outside air temperature is more than the indicated temperature, the indicated temperature rises 1F every minute once the vehicle reaches and maintains a speed of 19 mph or faster for at least 30 seconds. As long as the vehicle speed doesn’t drop below that, the indicator refreshes every 60 seconds until the two temperatures match. If the vehicle speed drops below 19 mph, the indicator doesn’t start to refresh again until the vehicle speed climbs to 19 mph or faster for more than 90 seconds.
This is _not_ a fault of the Honda system, it's just the way it works.
If that doesn't meet your needs, then sell your CR-V and buy something else.

And you still miss the point that this thread was not started as a complaint thread about the outside temperature indicator, but was someone sharing the details from Honda about how the system works.

In the meantime, I'm locking this thread.
