My gas mileage seems to be decreasing as the vehicle gets a little older. Why is that?

I'd like to try it myself, but not sure I can do it. Suggestions?

This occurs mostly at speeds over 75 mph.

The steering wheel vibrates at faster speeds (65 & above) & also breaking at these speeds. I have had the tire balance & air checked & was told it could be something with the breaks, rotors/ lining & or pads etc. does that sound right? I'd like to fix whatever is wrong.

Hello, I own a 2010 CRV EX 2WD since new, and since new has this aggravating thing that I figure is Honda way for this vehicle to have better gas mileage. I'm not the only complainer about it by the way; I recall dozens and dozens of other drivers having the same issue as me, mostly at the CRV forums. Here it is:

When freeway going on a slightly up-hill the transmission refuses to switch to a lower gear, the CRV bogs down loosening momentum and speed. If I depress the gas pedal, up to 1 1/2 inches nothing happens, if I depress further the car (let's call it car) takes off like a wild bronco, and soon after it reverts to a higher gear and bogs down yet again. It is impossible to maintain a steady speed when travelling over the slightest up-hill incline. Question:

Can the transmission computer software be programmed to make it more willing to switch gears at freeway speeds? For instance to "read" when the gas pedal is depressed a 1/4 of an inch (not almost 2 inches) and switch to lower gears, one at the time (or two if the pedal is depressed further) rather than allowing the vehicle to loose over 10 miles per hour before it shifts?

This is such an aggravating condition that had me looking for other brand vehicles, but I love this CRV, and within city driving the transmission is near perfect, always willing to shift to lower gears, always easy to keep a steady rate of speed, even going up-hill, with the slightest hint of pushing the gas pedal.

I did all the "service bulletin" changes that Honda recommended, including the 10-077 at the El Cajon, CA. Honda dealership.

I figure that this change should be possible to perform, just because of this:
Under the same conditions, the same long hills of freeway 52 in San Diego, if the cruise control is set to a particular speed, say 60, 65, 70, the transmission switches gears eagerly and rapidly, as soon as the vehicle looses @ 3 MPH it switches to the next lower gear. If the incline becomes more pronounced, it still will switch to lower gears to maintain the speed set by the cruise control, eagerly and quickly, never letting more than 3, perhaps 4 MPH before switching down, AND, most importantly, maintaining a consistent rate of speed.

Please help?

The car has 46,600 miles on it. The battery keeps dieing on us. Right now we live in Boston, and We keep getting snow storm after snow storm. The car died 5-6 times on us already. We got it at Honda, and it ran great, and back to our place. I don't know if it's the battery or something else... We have the year warranty on it and a lemon law yellow paper. Is it possible for them to replace the battery for free (for the service and the battery) since we just bought the car from them? If yes, How long do I have to get it free? Also, I read on here that it might be the air conditioner, or leaving something plugged in? What does that mean? Is it like a charger, or something else plugged in? We don't have anything plugged in or turned on after we are done driving it. We did take it back where we bought it, they said it's probably cause of the storm. Is it good to give it a jumper? Thank you in advance.

Replacement part is $400 plus labor. Before I invest in a fix,has anyone experienced this? Any recourse with mfg.?
