I have a 2008 and my CRV just started the vibration. It's not my alignment so I'm guessing it's the balance of my tires (which I'm going to get done this weekend). However, if Honda sells a perfect car they would loose money. So a little imperfection, with their cars, will help them financially. I found out there are tires you can purchase that never need replacing, brakes that don't wear out, and other parts for cars that are made the same way. However, they are very expensive. Honda knows what going on with their cars (CRV's). I'm sure they have complaints and people who work for them that peep these forums like we do. It's up to Honda vehicle owners to make Honda Auto Industry listen to us when we say something is not right with our cars.

Check your tach when you feel it. If the engine is at very low RPM's, than a normal rumble type sensation is normal. I can't recall any 4 Cyl vehicle I've owned where I didn't experience a rumble at lower RPM's.

In driving today - heard rumble at 1500 on tach....above or below no rumble.
I've two 4 cylinder cars....an older Honda accord and a Mazda Protege5 and never had a rumble.....
Thanks for info though......

I have the 2010 I get the rumble at 1500 as well. Seems to be a combination of low RPM's and the AT in a higher gear. Quick fix may be to press the D3 button on the shifter although haven't tried that yet. Not sure about CRV's prior to the 2010's, but since 2010 had an engine tweak, I'd be curious if the older models experience it too.

You may notice a little more low RPM vibration in colder weather, and expecially in slushy weather. The rubber engine mounts get stiffer in cold weather whcih will affect low RPM vibration more. Also, I found that slush can get thrown on the rear passenger side engine mount and freeze, causing a little more vibration, mostly at idle and just off idle.
Otherwise, my '03 Accord also "lugged", rumbled, vibrated, whatever you want to call it a in 4th and 5th gear at low RPM's. I consider it parts of the cars character and not uncommon for a 4 cylinder. Our Nissan Altima does this as well. Worse, from 35-40mph the CVT, noticeably "hunts" or "surges" a little.
I think all Hondas vibrate a little at low RPM. It's part of their character to a certain extend. I remember test driving a Odyssey and at low RPM's in top gear it vibrated a little too.
Modern, lean burning engines when under load at low RPM's tend to vibrate a little with the extr atall gearing they now have along with increased weight. It causes the engine to work a little harder at low RPM's that older cars might have.
Go test drive a few other 2010 vehciles and pay attention to how hte engine sounds at low RPM's when in top gear.

My brand new 2010 CR-v EX rumble at 1500 too. I love the car but this rumbling driving me crazy. I contacted the dealer and the American Honda. They could not help me to fix this issue. Dealer says "Its the characteristic of the car". How can annoying rumbling can be a characteristic of the car?

This post ["Beware of CR-V Vibration..."] was originally started by a person experiencing a severe body VIBRATION in the Honda CR-V and the refusal/failure of American Honda or a Honda dealership to correct/address this defect. The vibration has been described in detail in several previous posts concerning this subject although several responses have been off topic. So what is meant by "rumble" and how is it similar to the "vibration" which is/was the subject of this forum?

On my 2010, Rumble is noticeable at 1500 rpm and between 40 - 45 mph. Sounds like going over rumble strips. If you accelerate to change gears, it stops or back off accelerator, it stops. Only slight vibration in steering wheel and if radio is on, don't hear it as much.(-:
I answered three surveys complaining of this problem and maybe, just maybe Honda will fix it?

It appears the 2010 CR-V has other defects than the 2007 and 2008. Your "rumble" description appears dissimilar to the original forum topic.
Honda isn't going to fix anything as long as their CR-V sales remain constant and until perhaps [if and when] there are multiple fatalities related to the way the car handles (difficult to control in high winds and during high speeds due to the severe vibration of the body).

Same exact thing happens to my 2010 CR-V!!!! I also complained to American Honda.
