2009 Honda CR-V Problems
The AC compressor may seize resulting in loss of cold air from the AC vents. Often when the compressor fails in the fashion, debris is spread through out the entire air conditioning system resulting in very expensive repairs.
A groaning noise from the rear differential heard while going through turns can be caused by differential fluid break down. Servicing the rear differential will generally correct this concern.
The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
2009 Honda CR-V Questions
I have a DieHard battery charger 71223, but it says to use 12 amp for car battery. I have an Interstate, so I think it is Type I, but I thought for overnight you would use 2 amp. I will be leaving tomorrow morning (I hope) for the appt.
I was told to use a charger on trickle the night before I bring it to the dealer, but someone else said you shouldn't in this situation with a Honda. Anyone have problems charging? I tried a battery tender and am getting a flashing red light: something is still draining it.
i don't use heater that often since i'm in Texas but when i started using it 2 weeks ago, it just blows cold air. Anybody can tell me what can be the problem? or how to fix that?
2009 Honda CR-V Recalls
Certain driving styles can result in a broken outer race of the secondary shaft bearing inside the automatic transmission. A broken outer race may cause abnormal noise, the Check Engine Light to turn on, and contact between the transmission idle gear and an electronic sensor housing to occur. This could result in a short circuit, causing the engine to stall. Also, pieces of the outer race or ball bearing may become lodged in the parking pawl, resulting in the vehicle rolling after the driver has placed the shifter in the Park position. Dealers will update the transmission control module software to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is R89.

traded a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer for a NEW 2009 Honda CRV at deadline of clunkers program. I love the style but rear visibility suffers, you really have to be diligent when backing. I find it hard to read the indicators on the dash. The door locks and window controls are non-intuitive and drive me to distraction. Car has high a level of road noise,. poor acceleration especially in traffic,....
