If you are only a few months/miles out of warranty I would suggest contacting the Honda Zone Office and asking for assistance.
The quote you got seems high. Complete axle assemblies should list at the dealer for around $600 each and labor for both sides should be 1.6 hours.
It's true that there are a lot of substandard rebuilt axles being made out there. I didn't see any TSBs or other notices about CRV axles.

" It requires a little extra maintenance, fluid changes occasionally "
Does anyone know whether the 2011 crv maintenance feedback system also will tell you when it thinks you need to change transmission fluid and any other fluids associated w/ the drivetrain?
#6775 of 6957 2011 CR-V maintenance minder questions - scope?
Sep 22, 2011 (8:21 am)
I just test drove a cr-v 2011 and found out the maintenance minder that honda built into this car . the sales guy says it will tell you when to change the oil based on your driving of the vehicle. IS oil change the only thing it will tell you ? if not , what other maintenance items will it mind for you?
How well does this work? is this trustworthy? how long has this been in place for the cr-v?

I was also looking for actual cr-v users' experiences with awd. I know the adage, 'anything mechanical can breakdown.'

This is a good question. My V was due for maintenance and I was scrambling to look for the code meanings. After going through the owner's manual, I found this in page 347.
Replace engine oil
Replace engine oil and oil filter
Inspect front and rear brakes
Check parking brake adjustment
Inspect these items:
Tie rod ends, steering gear box, and boots
Brake hoses and lines (including ABS/VSA)
All fluid levels and condition of fluids
Fuel lines and connections
Replace air cleaner element
If you drive in dusty conditions, replace every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).
Replace dust and pollen filter
If you drive primarily in urban areas that have high concentrations of soot in the air from industry and from diesel-powered vehicles, replace every 15,000
miles (24,000 km).
Inspect drive belt
Replace transmission fluid
If you tow a CR-V behind a motor-home, the transmission fluid must be changed every 2 years or 30,000 miles (48,000 km), whichever comes first.
Replace spark plugs
Inspect valve clearance
Replace engine coolant
Replace rear differential fluid (4WD only)

One thing to remember... it's all based on usage... The system doesn't monitor each item to see if it really needs maintenance..

thanks for that page out of the V maint manual. It looks like the only item (predictable maintenance) that is 4wd specific is
Replace rear differential fluid (4WD only)
IS this an accurate ?
"My V was due for maintenance and I was scrambling to look for the code meanings"
Another question on the maintenance minder (my words; I dont know what honda calls this little system) ; does it issue the codes noted in the maint. manual?

Yes, i think it predicts the service your car needs based on the mileage.
It doesn't mean you can go off road and do donuts daily and it still ask you to do tire rotation and alignment yearly. That's the recommended service. Your dealer will tell you what else is needed based on the 'health check'.
I went to get the VTC recall and A16 done and it costed me $160 w/ tax.
They have a 'health report' printed when I checked out and it has the brake and tire wear figures on it. Pretty cool stuff.

#6782 of 6957 rasping noise on turning
Sep 28, 2011 (4:24 am)
I drive an'04 crv manual with 46,000 mi. , there is a rubbing noise on turning which stops when the wheels are straight. Goes away after a mile or two. Worse in cold weather. Does not seem to effect function. Had differential fluid changed but no difference. Any ideas?
Possibly wheel bearing?
