Just a thought for those of you with some time to really tackle this issue.
Just redid all speakers in '08 CRV. At same time, applied sound deadener material [sheets/rolls of black butyl rubber, easy to work with] to inside door panels. Noticed an improvement in road noise sound levels. Looked into the spare tire wheel well - almost all bare metal. Got adventurous & removed all lower rear interior panels & carpet under rear seats. Guess what? A lot of bare metal. All of this bare metal acts like a sounding board. Got some sound deadener & good quality trim removal tools. Covered much of the bare metal areas with the sound deadener material. Then replaced trim & spare.
Just got back from a 5441 mi. road trip. [Total mpg - 29.234 70 - 72 using CC whenever possible. ] On most roads highway speeds, could easily listen to music with volume levels no higher than 12/13. Well worth the time & money investment.

Any updates on 2010 or 2011 CRV road noise? My wife has a Pilot. I vowed never to buy another Honda based on the road noise. I am sure some folks have some limited success with different tires, however, most of the noise is transmitted from the road to tire to suspension to frame to the passenger area. The Pilot is so noisy that it makes listening to the radio problematic. Wind noise, not a big issue. Road noise, bad. The question is whether Honda has figured out how to resolve this and whether the new CRV's have a fix installed.

You know when you pay 28-30K for a top of the line CRV you should certainly NOT have to rebuild it to get a quiet ride---that should be standard at least in the top dollar vehicle. Good grief you removed all carpeting and interior panels and paid good money to fix something that should have been standard from Honda. The factory owes owners a fix.

I have rode extensively in Honda CRB (own one), Accord, and Odyssey and they all give my ears problems. They are all very, very noisy. Why doen't Honda fix the problem. It is so irritating. Oe cannot talk inside at road speed.

I do not buy what Honda told you on noise. My other car a 1996 Lexus LS400 is so quiet and it will turn and handle on a dime. Of course, top roofs do cause some wind noise.
