So, do you think this is a typical characteristic of the suspension?

No idea and I'm no mechanic. Really hoping that someone notices the activity and pops in with some better suggestions.

Does it do it when it rains and the roads are wet? I have owned cars with suspension noise that would quiet down on a good rainy day. The rubber bushings in the suspension may have got contaminated with oil.

It happens regardless of dry or wet road conditions.
#200 of 205 2012 CRV has whine and shudder
Nov 22, 2013 (3:03 pm)
My 2012 CRV is doing the whining thing. I compare it to 60-70 model cars that had carrier bearings that were going out. The sound began at 3k and the dealer said it was a common noise, twice I have brought it to the attention of the service manager. At 55 I can power up and down slightly making the sound fluctuate in its tone. It is getting louder by the day. Also, when I first leave my house upon shifting from 2nd-3rd there is a shudder that service said was attributed to the ECON system. After warm up there is no more. Any ideas of how to get Honda to address these issues.

I am having this problem too at under 5,000 miles. I threw a hissy fit in the dealership service dept when they said it's normal in this model. It's driving me crazy and finally they sent a technician in too talk me down. He finally agreed a brand new car should not do this after I asked to drive a car from their lot to see if it's so normal. In the end he said it's the creep senser in the differential (I think). That was 2 weeks ago and I'm still waiting for the part to come in. I insisted on getting it changed out but I've been getting the runaround for 2 weeks now about how hard it is to get the part! Perhaps if enough of us complain, they will have to do a recall on this part. Where would we complain to make our voices heard? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFl2Wzr1lDo

Check the rear brake shoe pads. Only happens when brake.

My 2013 CRV has whine 45-60 mph. I have been told "even by the dealer GenMgr" that it is the Final gear of the transmission. Apparently, the gears have too much "play" or what's referred to as "backlash". It started ato around 300 miles. I now have 3800 miles and getting no help from the dealer. The sound is like clockwork and now getting worse. It always happens when you are not fully accelerating anywhere between 45 and 64. The ser mgr brought the area Honda DPSM (district parts/service mgr) to "talk" to me about it. Appalling man who told me 5 min after I met him "I am not going to give you a transmission because you don't like a sound". I have been told by the dealer that I must deal direct with Honda in order to exercise Warranty coverage. I took my car to 3 other independent shops. They all said the same thing; transmission whine from final drive and all said "return to the dealer" for repairs. The dealer said "Honda does not care about outside opinions and Honda will "decide" if it is a problem or not. Unbelievable. So, now I start my jouney with Honda 800 customer service. I urge you to not wait too long. Contact Honda direct. If I do not get action from Honda, I am fully prepared to go to court. I am making payments on a brand new car that is "defective". Good luck. CALL HONDA

I had the same experience. Honda will send you back to dealer again. They just make you like a Ping pong ball. Find lawyer specializing in dealing with dealership and let them take care the problem before too late.
