    Ask them to swap your tranny with a manual, it will definatley solve the problem :P

    That's the first time I've read about the solenoid noise getting louder over time.

    Good job working it out with the dealer. It pays to be persistent.

    I have found bad area on serpentine belt pulley....middle of pulley has rough area almost like irregular weld line on pulley surface and seems to be causing wear on belt....interestingly enough found same spot on my wife's CRV, same year and same pulley and same wear marks....seems to be factory defect in pulley mold casting....any ideas or suggestions???

    I have a 2001 CR-V with about 100,000km on it, and lately the rear door handle is sticking when I pull up on it to open the door, the end result being that that the door won't close. So I have to basically hold it in place and then close the glass (which prevents the rear door from swinging open while driving, but it's still not properly shut). Honda service says that happens sometimes, and it's going to be $250 to fix! Seems excessive to me...anyone else have this problem?
    Thanks.

    I purchased my 06 CR-V on May 5 and since then I have noticed a mild vibration as I am accelerating. I can feel the vibration at all times when I hit 50 MPH, whether I am accelerating past that speed or cruising at a constant speed of 50 MPH. When I say mild, that's what I mean. My steering wheel doesn't shake fiercely, but I can feel a definite change in the car between 50 and 60 MPH, no matter the road conditions. I can feel this vibration mostly in my seat and on my back. Once above 60 MPH, the vibration stops and the car rides smooth again. During the test drive, I mentioned this to the salesperson and he explained that it could be that the car wasn't 'broken it' yet and said he would have the tires balanced as I was signing the papers (I'm not sure if all 4 were balanced or only the front 2). On the ride home (about 40 miles away), I didn't notice the vibration as much so I assumed the balancing of tires had corrected the issue. After about a week, I began to notice it again. I'm just curious whether anyone else has had this issue or if it could possibly be a difference in the feel of the ride, as I traded up from a 03 Chevrolet Malibu. Also, today as I was driving down the interstate I noticed that my steering wheel started shaking mildly as I approached 70 MPH. That is the first time I've noticed or felt that. I think the tires on my CR-V are Bridgestone. Could the problem be with the tires? Should I ask my salesperson to have the alignment checked or to balance all 4 tires again? This is my only concern with my new CR-V and it's not a major problem, but I would like to know if it's something you think I should get checked out. Otherwise, I am totally pleased with my purchase (especially since I am averaging about 27 miles per gallon!). Thanks for your time and suggestions!

    BTW, the car now has 2,000 miles on it, so I'm sure I've passed the break in period.

    I have a 2003 CR-V that experienced a compressor explosion in June 2005 at 32.5K miles. Last night, I experienced the same results with the 'new' compressor that was installed last year. The dealer told me this morning that they have seen a number of these problems and they would be replacing this one at no cost to me (43K miles and out of warranty). Those of you who are having to pay for this repair should push back with Honda. Or, go to another dealer.

    In 1998 Cr-V ex the sound system displays err-3 but no function works. Does anyone know what this means?

    Has anyone heard of throttle problems on 05 CRV's? I was at a red light with my foot on the brake and when the light turned green and I released my foot (without pressing the gas pedal) my car lounged forward and ran into the back of someone. I then slammed my brakes with both feet because my car kept accelerating towards her vechile. The only way it would stop was to turn my vechile off.

    I need help with some information. Our 2003 honda CR-V has 67000 miles on it. The head gasket just blew and the repair cost will be $2500. We have always had it service at a honda service dealership. Is there any chance honda may help with the cost? Who would I contact? Thanks for any input.

    Call the Honda corporate customer service line and explain the situation. The number is on the back of your OWNER's MANUAL.

    Apparently no one else seems to have this issue - however, I had the Honda folks look at it, and they said they've never seen anything like it. Even though it's out of original warranty, Honda is replacing the roof/frame at no charge. They believe a seal in the actual roof failed (or was not installed correctly). The tub around the sunroof is intact. I advise all to do a quick eyeball of their roof glass frame. JaRuyle

    2001 Honda CR-V EX 4WD 4dr (45.6K miles)

    For the past 2 years, I have noticed a pinging noise, similar to low octane ping. I have mentioned this every time I bring my car is for its regular service. Mechanic never is able to detect the noise. Twice during the regular scheduled service, valves were adjusted; each time was told nothing unusual was detected.

    Noise occurs only when the car sits for more then an hour or so. Noise occurs when you first shift into second, and third gears as you apply gas. This happens for the first mile or so of city driving.

    Today I had my 45K service done, all looked good. This time I asked the mechanic to go for a drive with me. Noise was detected.

    Mechanic made an observation regarding my shifting timing. I’m shifting gears at around 1500 RPM, mechanic says I should do it around 3000 RPM. He said this could be the cause of the pinging. He also said I would improve gas mileage by doing this.

    Tonight after work, I followed his advice, but is was hard to tell, since now the revving it up to 3000 RPM each time I shift drowns the pinging.

    Any of this makes sense?

    Thanks for any advice.

    So after you shift your RPM's drop to bellow 1000? Sounds like a logical explanation for a noise that laboring engine would make.

    hi, i also have an 05 CRV, with 24K miles. There was noise coming from the rear on sharp turns. Went to dealer today to get it fixed under warranty. Was told that replacing the rear diff. fluid would fix it but that it was not covered under warranty since its fluids and maintenance. I insisted that the fluid be replaced under warranty. Service manager called honda and they decided to replace it this one time without cost. I told them that the book says to replace it at something like 60K, and that I came in to have them get rid of the noise and that since the car was under warranty, there should be no charge. So, after the phone call they did it for no charge. Had to argue quite a bit to get this accomplished but they finally gave in. good luck. larry

    Sounds like you are "lugging" the engine and should shift at higher rpm. Lugging can be very bad for an engine and it's a habit you should try to break whenever you can. If you start shifting at 2,000 or so and still get the ping, then maybe it's not you after all.

    Wow.... 2001 CR-V and you are shifting at 1500 RPM? I'm surprised you haven't been run over.. ;)

    Start winding that baby out, and you won't believe how much more fun you'll have...

    Seriously, I agree with the others... you've been lugging the engine.. Your RPMs should be above 1500 (preferably 2K), after you shift.. I think your mechanic has this pegged.. You'll be doing yourself and your car a favor, if you can change your shifting habits..

    And besides, doesn't shifting at low RPMs put additional wear and tear on the clutch?

    Folks, I've owned my 04 CRV since new and have a recurring (and fairly loud) rattle that appears to be under the passenger seat or in the right side rocker panel. Of significance, this occurs only when the car has reached normal operating temperatures and only when making left turns. Is more pronounced when going over a small bump such as a driveway entrance. But again, only with left turns. Have had the vehicle to the dealer for this 4 times. They have checked areas of front end, replaced some front end bushings, moved the engine away from the frame, checked front brakes. Each time they pronounced the issue as cured. Each time it came back as soon as I had driven a mile or so and made a left turn. The vehicle has only 37,000 miles, never in an accident. Very frustrating since I had changed from a Ford to a Honda for better quality. Advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Jerry

    Same here on an '02...

    They did the thing where they loosened a mount... shifted the engine slightly, then torqued it back down... That worked for about a month...

    Sadly, I just ignore it, now...

    Hi, was wondering if you still have the noise issue or if you found the solution. I have an 04 CRV with noise coming from same area. No satisfaction from Honda. Thanks. Jerry
  • jerrymoljerrymol Posts: 3
    Thanks for the feedback. I'll let you know if someone finds a solution. Jerry

    You made me laugh! Maybe now I'll stop getting the finger from old ladies, as they leave me in the dust. :P

    Thanks so much guys, all these years, doing it wrong, thinking I was doing a good thing for the car.

    Thanks so much!!

    How did that say they were going to do that if the roof interior is rusting. on my 06 the sunroof interior seems to be part of the frame.

    Hi

    I have almost 32000 miles on my CR-V 04 EX. Recently I have noticed
    a single click noise while braking. It sounds about 0.5-1sec after pressing
    the braking paddle. It seems that less louder click is there when
    in the follow up step accelerating. The noise sounds to me similar to
    the electric relay and it can be heard on the drivers side only.
    I guess it is not nothing serious but a bit annoying, so please
    help!

    Thanks !

    Would this problem be detectable when Honda hooks up their diagnostic scan tool? Thanks.
  • Hi Jerry,
    I have the same problem as you do, just started about a week ago. My 04 CRV (owned since new) just started getting a clunking noise under the passenger seat (or between the two front seats, can't really tell), but ONLY when we go over a moderate ALL CAR bump. Doesn't happen when just one wheel hits a bump. Haven't tried turns yet but will test that. It almost sounds like some part is just loose underneath and needs to be tightened to the frame but I doubt it's that simple. I have about 25,000 miles on it and drive it as carefully and "nicely" as possible so I have no idea what could have caused this.

    I do feel though that if you at least have this documented by the dealer BEFORE 3yr/36,000 and they can't fix it at the time, they still might fix it for free after the warranty is up. I agree, this shouldn't happen but if this is the worst thing that happens to my car for the next 100,000 miles, I'll feel lucky. Still shouldn't be happening! Let me know if you find out anything else. I'm going to the dealer today for an oil change so I'll ask them about the noise and see if they have any new answers.

    I also just purchased an 06 CRV EX on June 3. I get the same vibration at about 70 mph on the interstate. It seams to get progressively worse as your speed increases. It seems like it could be the tires, but not sure. Should I take it to a dealer to check it out, or just carry it to a Bridgestone dealer? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Check tire pressure.

    '98 CR-V 4WD Automatic 76,000 miles - and now a transmission problem (June 06). Bought it Certified-Used off-lease w/ 30,000 miles. Doubtful that I'm under any kind of warranty.

    Looks like something broke loose in the differential that then caused two 1/2" pieces of metal to chip off the transfer case's collar (inside the differential of course). Imagine what happens when a metal piece gets in between the gears - shutter/grind. Car is now at the shop undriveable. Shop is looking for used differential.

    Not sure to repair or scrap.

    Argh!

    is this a pattern??? Any one have luck w/ Honda?
