I have the same noise and dealer keeps saying its normal, I drove other CRV's and the noise is not there, I have opened a case with American Honda (rudest folks work there its seems) they called from blocked number and refuse to call with number being displayed.
I will an attempt to see dealer again if no action M ready to file a lemon law.
I will post the sounds on Utube and post again the exact noise...

My new 2013 CRV is making the same whine between 40 and 60 mph when I let off the accelerator just a bit. It comes from the passenger side into the cab. It is driving me crazy. Yes, the dealer says it is "characteristic of "this" transmission. I am going to continue to pursue this. My car was assembled in Ohio.

It seems like it's only the AWD models which have this problem. If you live in a non-mountainous part of the country and most if not all your driving is on level surface, the 2WD model is all you need. I have a friend in the Houston Tx area who was considering a AWD model CR-V. I managed to convince him he would be much happier and have much fewer problems with a 2WD model.

I have the 2013 CR-V EX AWD bought August 24th 2013 after 500 miles, noticed the same noise described here. Noted the whiling between 40 - 65 MPH regardless if pressing on excellerator or fully releasing it. Now at 1,100 miles. After traveling from Vegas to L.A. and back over those 8K foot mountains, and still hearing that same whining between 40 - 65 MPH, decided to bring it back to the dealer - I'll let you know what happens. Thanks for starting this thread, good to know Honda did replace at least one trans for someone on this tread.

The Honda tech drove with us for a test drive to hear the whining noise. He heard it and had no solutions. The service manager as kind as he was, said Honda is aware of this complaint, but, currently does not have a fix for it. He checked with the area service rep. and learned I'm the first one in Las Vegas to complain of the CR-V AWD whining noise between 40-65 MPH. They logged my complaint so if Honda comes up with a solution, they'll let me know. How long will this take? Your guess is as good as mine. I expressed my deepest disappointment to the service manager. What other actions can one take? Demand a new CR-V? The noise did not exist prior to the first 500 miles on the vehicle. Therefore it is a problem or at the very least indicative of a problem. local Honda dealer says there's no fix. I'm open to suggestions for another reasonable course of action...???

Its been a few months, but here are my updates concerning the "croaking" sound while driving between 0-5 mph. The sound comes from the rear differential area. For several months, American Honda said they were aware of the issue, and the engineers were working on a solution. After hearing nothing for over 6 months, I took the vehicle back into the dealership and said that something needs to be done because the sound seemed to be getting louder and occurring much more often. They contacted American Honda and surprise, there supposed was a fix for this now. It involves replacing a pump on the rear diff. This is an external pump and does not require any tear downs.
After the pump was changed, the sound was still there. However, it is much more quieter...almost to the point of not hearing it at all if you weren't aware of the problem. But, that's the way the whole problem started out. Being afraid that the problem would only get worse, they advised American Honda that the fix failed.
American Honda was surprised and stumped. I got the impression that the fix supposedly worked on other complaints. Maybe those people just haven't heard that the noise is still there and may only get louder. In the end, American Honda decided that they want my entire differential for research reasons to determine exactly what is going on. I am scheduled to get the entire rear diff replaced next week with a brand new one pulled from new car assembly inventory and shipped to the dealership.
We'll see how this goes.

To me the whining noise sounds like a belt rubbing against something. The faster the speed of the CRV the higher pitch, as the vehicle slows the pitch gets lower. If it's the emergency break, what is rubbing against what? How did you determine it is the e-break? I really appreciate the details how you determined the source of the noise. In other words, what is rubbing against what part of the e-break? Thanks!

Re: whining hollow sound from transmission at speeds between 45-65. I discovered the sound around 500 miles. The number of complaints is building. We need "dealer" support to press the Honda and there regional Reps that call on the dealers. Also, the service manager is just the messenger of bad news to those of us who are taking the brunt of Honda's bad transmission. Stop messing with the service manager, go to the General Mgr and/owner of the dealership. Many review sites exist for for rating the Dealership. The dealership is our link to Honda. Are we suppose to just hope this sound does not get louder and have an adverse affect on our ability to resale our automobiles "if we can". We could be stuck with these lemons for as long as we own the car. And, also be stuck with noise. I do believe me noise is increasing and any even at speeds outside of 45-65. Ask you dealer this "will they take the car in on a trade and then resell it AS IS ?? HA. I am going on every possible website I can to complaint and bring attention to this really bad situation. Honda should just replace the transmission and be done with it ! ! Where was your Honda assembled BTW (it is on your original sticker)? I live in Longmont Colorado and the car came from Ohio.
#179 of 202 Steering Wheel noise

Anyone else experiencing a clicking noise when they turn their steering wheel from side to side?
This just started happening on my 2013 the other night. The noise is coming from the steering column, not the tires or outside of the car.
It seems to be louder the longer I've been driving. Barely even there when I first start my car. I mostly drive short trips.
This is not my video, but this is what's happening:
