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?

#137 of 154 The Honda CRV Vibration
Aug 27, 2011 (4:32 pm)
Just looking through post because I am having this issues with a 2008 CRV AWD. It happens most often when I am trying to drive the 45mph speed limit. Vehicle will vibrate and rumble significantly unless I either hit gas a little harder, lay off the gas, or drop vehicle into D3. I have before kept driving at certain speeds to see if it will occur and if it will go away on its own (which it doesn't) Have been able to produce it also around 25mph or so but not as often as the 45mph speeds. It is extremely annoying and cannot be good for the vehicle. Are there any idea on cause or fixes for it? I don't want to have to keep driving like that when it start to do it.

I have driven my 2007 CR-V-EX over 78,000 miles since I purchased it new in May 2007 and still experience a body vibration at 60-65 mph which has been present since date of purchase (previously posted on this forum). I am methodical in performing the recommended maintenance however the Honda dealership and American Honda have failed to address or pursue a solution to this problem. I was given coupons for a few free oil changes and tire rotation. I am impressed with the CR-V's reliability however when it is time to trade it in for the 2012 I will not purchase another CR-V if this vibration has not been resolved by Honda.

I have this problem as well on my 2007 with 63,000 miles. The problem has always occurred in some form and I'm pretty sure it has to do with the rear differential. We should try to organize a group and send a formal letter to honda (or at least BBB). My dealer changed the rear diff fluid twice now. It seems to be worse on certain road services. I think surfaces that don't allow the wheels to slip/skid exacerbate the problem (my 1997 AWD Jeep had the same problem). When I first got the car there was a service alert regarding the differential fluid not being suitable in cold weather. The dealer changed the fluid under warranty but the 2nd time they charged me. I should have fought harder but at the time I thought the vibration might be from my tires. I have since replaced the tires and the vibration is a little worse (back to the slip theory - the newer tires slip less).

I have a 2007 LX 2WD (no differential) and I suffer the vibration problem. Convinced this design problem destroys tires prematurely. Last year, I test drove different versions of the 2011 CR-V on the highway and felt the vibration in all of them (so did the guy that drove with me).
#141 of 154 2008 Honda CRV EX-L air conditioner
Jul 18, 2013 (4:31 pm)
Hello, I purchased my Honda CRV EX-L brand new from a Honda dealership in the summer of 2008. I spent at least eight hours to purchase this vehicle. Top of the line, everything -- voice recognition, back-up camera, navigation, leather seats, heated seats, sunroof, vtec engine, mp player, 6 loaded cd player including cd player in dash board. 17 inch wheels, tinted windows, dual air -- everything you name it. In the past two months -- minor repairs -- replaced battery -- I was at grocery store and came back to my CRV and it would not start. One week later the back rotors were grinding -- no warning. The brake pads were replaced one year ago. But, I am still happy with my CRV, it has taken me places with no problems and I still receive compliments on its body style -- especially when it is washed, waxed and tires are shinning! But no problem -- what took the "cake" was that my air conditioner went out on Sunday July 14, 2013. It has 123,00 miles. I would have less miles but I am a life and health insurance producer for the State of Maryland so I traveled a lot two yrs ago. I took the vehicle to Firestone and they said the compressor went out. They told me it would cost $1,300.00 to repair the problem! I was shocked because this is not an old Honda. I used to own two 1999 and 2005 VW Passat (turbo engines and stick shifts) two Nissan Pathfinders (top of the line) 1987 and 1991, 1996 Dodge Intrepid, a 1985 Z28 Camero, 2000 Chevrolet Malibu -- I could go on and on of all the cars I have owned since 1979 -- and I never had a compressor go "dead" on me. After I read other posted messages, I was amazed at the problems with Honda CRV ac. Once I take my Honda CRV for repair I will send "Edmunds" a copy of all receipts and I do hope there will be litigation in the Civil Court system for a class action suit in the near future. My advice is to purchase an extended that Honda mails to you. I just received a warranty from them in the mail today, Thursday, July 18, 2013. Best regards to all Honda CRV owners!
