The pull/drift is a legitimate complaint - but it does appear that not all are affected & seems to be a tire issue. Our '07 (Bridgestones) had slight but noticable drift to the right from day one. Alignment has been checked & is within specs... Rotation lessened the drift but not completely... switching front tire from left to right/right to left eliminated drift entirely. So We like most when the factory tires are worn out will purchase a higher qaulity tire & not Bridgestones,

I have a 2006 CR-V and mine does the same thing. The dealership gave me some bs about how this is a safety feature to wake you up if you fall asleep. Apparently it pulls you to the side of the rode so the bumps will wake you up. My mechanic friend is fixing it for me this weekend. I'm not sure what his plan is but I may try some of the options I've read here tonight. Mine has been pulling right since I bought it at the beginning of 06. Let me know if you've ever heard of this. I'm sure it was bs but I'm not a mechanic so what do I know. Let me know if you figured out how to solve the issue. Thanks
#30 of 101 2 WD vs 4 WD

We live in the upper Midwest and are considering a 2 WD (LX) as a second vehicle as we already own a 4 WD Forester. Would save about $1,000 going with 2WD. Wondering particularly about the 2WD handling in snow/ice and also general satisfaction with 2WD. Thanks.

Just bought an '08 FWD CR-V. Did not road test on highway...big mistake. Vehicle has an extremely irritating pull to the right...especially on the highway at speed and accelerating. With in 3 seconds you are in the next lane. Is not an alignment issue because it does not do it when you shift into neutral. Took out another one this morning, and it did the same thing. Everyone at the dealer acknowledged this issue exists with the CR-V, but have no way to correct it. Rides like a bucking-bronco down the highway also. Have bought 3 previous Hondas including a '98 CR-V with no issues. But this one is a SEVERE DISAPPOINTMENT! My only hope is that it gets better with mileage or there is a recall. Everybody with this problem needs to complain to Honda corporate to get a fix. I just did.

Wow... that's very interesting. We have an '07 EX-L AWD CR-V and just bought an '08 LX 2WD CR-V for the wife, and haven't experienced this issue with either vehicle. We both love our CR-V's.

I own an '07 EX-L AWD CRV with 11,200 miles and it tracks true. I rotated the tires at 7500 miles and have never had a problem with tracking or alignment.

I bought a 2007 CRV in March, I have 15000 miles on it. I had tires rotated and the mechanic told me I needed new tires. I had these tires rotated every 5000 miles. The dealer told me they were not responsivle that I should go to a Bridgestone Dealer. The Bridgestone dealer told me the dealer is responsible. The games begin. 15000 miles is very low mileage for a tire. Any suggestions?

After driving down a near-by deserted street several times on the wrong side of the road (left side in the U.S.), our CR-V will pull to the LEFT. This would explain our friends in the U.K. saying their CR-Vs pull to the left. I guess I've come to the conclusion that these vehicles are very sensitive to road crowning and transmit that sensitivity to the steering wheel in a manner I've never noticed in any other vehicle I've driven. Wife just loves the car, so I guess that's the end of this story. I'll stick with my bicycle-- an '06 Lemond Zurich...6,000 miles last year...great bike and no pull!

Bought my 2008 CRV two month ago has been in a dealership four times since.
It is puling to the right and they seem like can not do anything about that, they check and recheck alignment again. Just called Honda customer service and let them know, will file all necessary documents for lemon tonight and call BBB Automotives. If you have same problem with 2008 CRV please do the same.

Hi, I just bought a new Honda CRV and mine is doing the same thing, it pulls severely to the right, took it back twice they told me it's the contour of the road, BS....Don't know who to call or where I can get phone numbers to call. Can you send them to me? I love the car but this pulling to the right is so annoying, I just can't imagine I have to live with this after I traded my 05 Nissan Murano, nothing wrong with it, just wanted better gas mileage. Please send me the phone numbers to call and do you know what I need to do as far as the Lemon Law goes in Florida? Do you think it's the tires. Shoot if it is, I'll go and buy 4 new tires, but this is ridiculous.....
