#70 of 119 Rear diffential fixed
Feb 02, 2007 (12:32 pm)
I picked up the '07 CRV today after the repair for the rear differential noise/problem. The Honda service invoice reflects that they replaced the rear differential sub assembly with a case kit per the part number and cost below:
41011-R09-000 CASE KIT, T.C.D. 1 2007 CR-V $1316.77
They also show on the invoice Honda Dual Pump Fluid and Hondabond HT sealant in the repair. I have driven the vehicle approximately 50 miles since the repair and the driveline is a smooth as glass and with out any noise at all while completing low speed u-turns in either direction. I hope this solves the problem. Now, I can install my Curt 2.5 hitch in the next couple of days.

Have just taken my 2007 CRV to the Honda dealership for the 2nd time. The first time it was due to the problem you are describing - the car would not start, then after a few tries it would start. Also the TPMS and Air Bag malfunction light go on and stay on. Had to convince the dealership there was something wrong. They tried to tell me the air bag malfunction light goes on when you have your purse or something light weight in the passenger seat. Not true - the "Air Bag Off" light will come on in that case, not the malfunction light. In any case, they got it to repeat the non starting problem and replaced the battery. This was about a 1 1/2 weeks ago. Today it would not start at all. Had to have it towed to SF Honda. Not sure what is wrong. Also had terrible customer service at SF Honda - I had to take the bus home! Has anyone else had the starting problem? Thanks.

I had the problem where it would not start on the first attempt..second time starts right up...After THREE visits they finally got it fixed..they replaced the starter. Now I have the problem with the airbag light..for 5 months it stayed lit "OFF" now all of a sudden it is unlit. Maybe should always be not lit unless someone sits there..BUT for 5 months it was LIT..so there is something NOT right...They give me a free loaner car because I called Headquarters Honda and demanded it..this is a brand new car after all. I truly regret getting a Honda. I always had Toyota..should have stayed with it.

These initial problems are the reason I try to wait a few years into the model run before buying. Hope yours get corrected.

the problem with non starting seems to have gone away. i would absolutely buy the car again. i love it. with the warrantee i'm not concerned about this as a issue. buy one - you'll love it.

I would rather have spent $25K+ on a car that starts everytime and does not leave me stranded somewhere at night with no way home other than waiting for Triple A to rescue me. I excpect more from a brand new car no matter what the warranty - way more! As I sit here waiting for Enterprise to drop off my economy 2 door, tiny rental car - because that is all Honda will cover after I complained - I wish I had made a differnt choice for a new car. I don't love it.

should my new car be affected? I bought it late march 07? Or would that have already been looked into by this time?
Like any good new car owner, I'll have my husband test it like crazy....
