My 2010 crv with 36000 highway miles is making a screeching noise when starting on 2010 Honda CR-V

The dealer now tells me this is why my battery also needs replacing. He said my starter is shot. I bought the car new 30 months ago. Anyone else have this problem?

Honda has a service bulletin regarding the starters on SOME Accords, CRVs and Elements. TSB #12-018-'starter intermittently grinds in cold weather'.Check with your dealer or post VIN and I will check to see if it applies to yours...........Honda (as far as we're told at the dealership I work at)Warranties batteries 3 years /unlimited miles through the 2010 model year and 3/36 2011 and newer.
