Yes !!!! Honda has manufacture problems.
I bouthg a CRV 2009 - O miles.
2 week later the car started pulling to the rigth.
We went to the dealer 4 times.
They fix their computer - Nothing
They make aligment - Nothing
They changed tires - Nothing
They test the air - Nothing
They offered to tes a new crv and the same problem Happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally, after 6 hours of discution, they recognized the problem with CRV and we have to contact HONDA to solve the problem. The dealer can not do anything for us.
We decide to put a sign in our car
DO NOT BUY HONDA 2009 CRV
OWNER OF THIS CAR.
We hope it will help futures buyers.
Sorry about my english. and thanks.

I thought that Honda had some similar problems with older models about pulling to one side. They found the springs were not seated properly on the struts.

About ready to pull the trigger on a new 2010 but test drove a 09 model first. No pull to the right or left noticed. Test drove another a few days later just to make sure it had enough power for my needs and again this second CR-V 09 model did not pull or I would have noticed. Drove it only 9 miles or so and part of that was on the highway.
Have read a few Honda CR-V forums and this issue reported is not wide spread as the 2002 thru 2006 air compressor problems is. Me thinks its here and there on some of the vehicls....

I test drove 4 different CR-V's before buying a new '09. 3 different model years and a wide range of miles on the clock. Never noticed any pull to the right.
Actually when cruising, I find it requires less steering input that our '08 Altima. The only time it veers right or left is due to the crown of the road.
I'm guessing it's an assembly problem, defective part or a combination of the two that causes this problem on a very small number of models.

I had to go through the Better Business Bureau with the issue of the Honday CRV pulling to the right. I went through arbiration and I won my case. Honda had to pay me back for 8 car notes that I paid and they had to buy my car back. I went through hell with that issue. I now have a Mercedes GLK350!
#80 of 101 cabin noise at highway speed
Sep 21, 2009 (9:23 am)
We are thinking about buying another CR-V - we have an old 2000 model and want something newer and more up to date.
My question is: How bad is the noise inside the cabin at highway speeds? As far as I am concerned this is a weak spot in my current CR-V; the cabin is just plain noisy when you get to highway speeds. How is the sound proofing in the newest generation?

How was in it in the 209 model, which will probably be largely similar to the 2010 model?

Difference from 09 and 10 model will be the HP but should ride about the same. My experience with both 09's was that the pick up was good but not great for highway on ramps and passing. For me this was expected. Turning, I have not heard any clunking noise as some have experienced in older models, and no pull what so ever when breaking.
Wheel noise was pronounced on rough roads but on smoother roads it was about as noticeable as my 2008 Accord. Passing other vehicls and flooring it did produce a harsher engine noise but this too is expected in a 4 cyl vehicle.
Ride was very much like a sedan unless you take corners to fast and must be careful.
Will take a longer test ride with the 2010 model when they arrive some time in mid to late October.

I checked the alignment specs between 2008, 2009, 2010 crv models. The caster angle was increased from 1.5 to 3.0 between 08 and 09 models and then it was reduced to 2.5 in 2010 model. My interpretation of last reduction is that Honda admitted issues with steering. This caster change should reduce the efforts needed to steer the vehicle and as a side effect it might make PTTR issue less noticeable because it would require less efforts for driver to keep steering wheel turned slightly left to compensate drift caused by road camber.
