#24 of 27 Brake problems on new CRV 2010
Jul 06, 2010 (10:08 pm)
Did you ever discover the cause of the problem? We had the same symptoms on our NEW CRV 2010 after 1 month of owning it. The brakes were rusted/corroded/pitted. Car had less than 2000 miles on it. Many of the car parts were also rusted/corroded. We took it to an independent Mechanic who we trusted to find out what the problem was...the Mechanic asked if the car had been in a flood. Not to my knowledge...thought I was buying a "new" car. In any case, my advice to you is to take your car to an independent mechanic to find out the problems, then take it to the dealer and have them fix the source of the problem. Be sure to save the documentation from the visit in case you need to file a lemon law claim. One guy emailed me and told me he had to replace his brakes every 6 months. I am wondering about the quality of the materials that Honda is putting into their cars....

If the 2007-up CR-V has same break set up as the 2002-2006, then caliper sliding pins have to be cleaned and lubricated at leat once a year in a snowey regions. Even if it does not snow where you live, it is not a bad idea to service your brakes once a year.
I highly doubt brakes had to be replaced every 6 months, but, where I live, Buffalo, NY, I service brakes on the CR-V in April, after winter, and in October, before winter sets. Servicing is not the same as replacement. Servicing involves taking the parts off and cleaning them, and them putting them back together with some Molykote-77.

Everyone: Honda recently settled a class action suit regarding their brakes:
So don't believe them when they tell you that the rusted brakes is your fault, which is their normal method of operation: blame the victum.
