Question about 1999 Honda CR-V
The package you describe should present no problem for the CR-V, but there are steps you can take to improve towing service and capabiity.
First, I would invest in an auxiallary transmission cooler an possibly a tranny performance kit (if available), and have it installed and the tranny and filters serviced/changed and then refilled with hi-performance tranny fluid suitable for Hondas.
B&M makes performance/towing kits for most domestic makes, and I'm sure someone out there does likewise for Hondas, but you'll have to look or ask around. I did find http://www.importperformancetrans.com/hondaauto.shtml which has some of the items I suggested available, so there's a starting point.
Just the extra cooler and fluid/filter change should give you all the reliabilty you need... the kit would firm up shifts and further lower tranny temp, but it is not an absolute necessity, just added insurance
Hope this is illuminating, let us know if you have other questions, and best of luck!
