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.

Another blog I've been on says this is a very common problem in the 2010 model and 2009. They even call it a "harmonic tingle"....don't know if the bloggers named it or Honda themselves named it.
Either way it's not dangerous so far (X fingers crossed) and doesn't cause any difficult handling, etc. Just annoying at times....but if I blast my favorite Bob Segar CD, don't hear a thing...LOL

Interesting to see that the same problem exists in the US and Canada as with the European CR-V. I have a Honda CR-V 2008 with the same problem. At speeds between 95 kph and 105 kph the entire car vibrates. I've had the car in for service at the local Honda dealer in Sweden three or four times since I got the car 18 months ago.
The explanation I get now is that there is a software error in the system controlling the fuel/air mixture. Apparently there is too little fuel in the mixture at certain speeds that have some cylinders not firing correct.
They say that Honda Japan is working on a fix and that this fix should have been available several months ago.

Promises promises from Honda e.g. several months ago. Oh well...)-:
Still love the 2010 but you would think since 2008 they would have corrected it....

I "enjoyed" reading all the posts since my last one in July 09 about the "newly redesigned Honda CR-V" vibration problems. I thought I had my problem licked by buying the best that money can buy - Michelin Latitude Touring tires ($1000) for my 07 CR-V LX back then - but now know that even great tires can't beat this problem. I have 51000 miles on my car and I put the Michelin's on at 38000. I recently noticed the same vibration problems and "out of balance" sounds coming from the vehicle at highway speeds that I've had from day 1 with the vehicle. Soon the car will become undrivable/unsafe again as it has in the past. I have to do something quick so I either need to sink more money into tires that can last a year - or buy a new car.
You can test if your tires are "chopped" yourself by rubbing your fingers over the tread (I find the outer tread-line next to the sidewall to be the most pronounced). Rub it 1 way towards the front of the vehicle and then the other way towards the back of the vehicle - it will be smooth one way and "choppy" or difficult the other way if they are chopped/cupped.
I only recommend someone buying a CR-V who likes to gamble - knowing they could lose all their money. You may be OK, or you may have the nightmare scenarios that many of us with 07 thru 10 models are having. I wouldn't do it if I were you.

Tomas, I have the exact problem as you have described.
Did you get any help from the Swedish dealer.
If so, what was the fix? (was it software related)
I also experience a slight juddering/vibration while driving on cruise control set at 100km/h. The vibration starts just before downshifting occurs due to increased load (or if I change from 95 to 100 km/h on the cruise).
Did you have this problem?

Can I tow a crv with a 2-wheel dolly? Are there any limitations or problems I should be aware of?

Is your CR-V AllWD or FrontWD?
