#94 of 101 Rear differential nonsense
May 03, 2010 (12:25 pm)
Please, please ,please, everyone who has had this type of problem file a complaint at this link. https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/ See this website and fill out a complaint. It is about time Honda stands behind there cars again. Tell everyone you know with this type of problem. Enough is enough. We don't need a class action. We need enough voices to force Honda to honor their word or suffer the same consequences as Toyota has. It will take all of us to get some action taken. This is not the first time Crv's have had different information in the owner's manual from what the service bulletin says. Look up valve issues and adjustment schedules. They have done this before and gotten away with it. Not this time.
#95 of 101 6 Alignments in 1 year and still pulling
Oct 26, 2010 (10:12 pm)
I have an '09 CR-V...it has been 13 months and I've had 6 alignments....my car still pulls to the right and this issue has never been resolved. I asked Honda to look at something else that could be affecting the pull..a bigger picture..but all they tell me is basically it is my fault, my driving and the crown of the road. Obviously there is a bigger issue than the alignment. I try to bring it to another shop for a second opinion, their conclusion was that there was a recall for the camber on CR-V's has anyone heard this?

I have an '08 CRV and I have not had any recalls come in. It's easy to find out if a recall was done on your car. If you're being financed thru Honda you can go under the hondafinancialservices.com site and under "My vehicles you will see on the bottom right hand side a link for "RECALLS". If you are not financed thru Honda you can go to this site: http://www.hondaproblems.com/recalls/

I had the same issue when I had a 2008 Honda CRV. I ended up going through the Better Business Bureau and I went through a arbitration hearing. Honda had to buy my car back and pay me back all eight of the car notes that I had paid.

Thank you for your advice. I did follow through with your advice..currently waiting to hear back from the BBB to find out what their decision is.
#99 of 101 Shimmy / Shudder after engine work
Jan 04, 2011 (11:29 am)
I recently had some major engine work on my 2003 CRV (75k km); replacement of timing chain. This means pulling the engine and etc.
Now, when driving up the freeway to ski, the vehicle has a bit of a 'shudder' at higher speeds (70 km/hr). This is with winter tires on rims that haven't been rebalanced since being installed.
Any comments as to cause? I can think of unbalanced tires or wheel alignment issues and the recent engine work is just coincidental but I saw a reference in another discussion to a problem with the engine mount causing 'shudder' problems... I don't notice anything at lower speeds.
Thanks for any thoughts.
#101 of 101 my steering is off after getting it back from dealer
Jan 16, 2011 (11:11 am)
I took my Honda into the dealer for it's 5Kmile routine. When I got it back the steering was off. With the wheel centered it's pulls to the left and there's a lot more play in the steering. I took it back and they don't see it.
Any idea's on what I should check for ? I'm thinking something happened when they were changing oil up on the lift. I checked the steering fluid, not a problem.
It's under warrenty so I'm going to continue to go back.
Thanks for any help,
