The 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 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?

Shifter 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.
