2010 Honda CR-V Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

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.

Brakes -- Verified

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.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

On certain models a faulty windshield wiper motor can cause the wipers not to turn off or not park properly. The wiper motor needs to be replaced to address this issue.

Drive Train -- Verified

Use of incorrect oil in the rear differential on AWD models will cause a "chattering" sound and vibration on turns. Use only Honda-approved differential oil.

2010 Honda CR-V Recalls (Recent)

Drive Train, August 8, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

2010 Honda CR-V Reviews

Having had 7 Honda Accords or Preludes, as well as a 2008 CRV, it seemed like an obvious choice to purchase a 2010 CRV. I have had it for almost 5 months and it has been in the shop 3 times. It appears to have poor welding issues on the body frame and other noises have been related to the exhaust system (although I have a new noise that is under the car and may still be related to the exhaust system). There are other issues too and needless to say, I am extremely unhappy with this CRV and this loyal Honda customer is considering purchasing a Toyota or Nissan.

I absolutely love my 2010 Honda CRV. It drives smoothly and is comfortable all around; however, it failed to start twice yesterday, so I'm taking it back to the dealer tomorrow for a checkup.
