2013 Honda CR-V ProblemsWindshield Washer Inop Due to Front Bumper Impact
Impact to the front bumper can cause the connector on the washer pump to come off and the windshield washers will not work. Depending upon the severity of the impact it could damage the washer motor and bottle.
Some vehicles with an automatic transmission can have an issue with a harsh shift from first to second gear. Honda has released a service bulletin suggesting to flush the transmission using Honda ATF-Z1 and replace the linear solenoid. If that does not cure the problem the fault is internal and the transmission will require replacement or overhaul.
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.
2013 Honda CR-V QuestionsThe transmission in my new CR-V failed after 7 days and 50KM running. (1 answer)
The dealer will only replace the transmission, but I am not happy, and want the car replaced.
The replacement is a difficult operation, and I fear being left with a Lemon.
Can you advise me, what I should do to insist that a vehicle this new should be replaced
The dealer checked the car out & agreed that there is a rumble, they re-balanced the tires, but no real change. They suggested that I put in a better gas, which I've done, but still no change. Does anyone have any suggestions?
2013 Honda CR-V RecallsShifter May Move Without Depressing Brake Pedal
The shift interlock system is designed to prevent the shifter from being moved out of the park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. These vehicles are being recalled because during sub-freezing temperatures, the interlock mechanism may be slow to operate. The could allow the shifter to be moved from the park position when it should not be allowed to do so. As a result the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install an updated shift interlocking mechanism to correct this concern.
