Honda made several notable mid-cycle updates to its popular sport utility for 2015. The CR-V gained an updated front and rear appearance, along with new wheels and various trim bits.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2014 Honda CR-V owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Brakes

Antilock system (ABS), parking brake, master cylinder, calipers, rotors, pulsation or vibration, squeaking, brake failure or wear.

What Owners Say

Antilock system (ABS)

"The speaker for your cell phone has a high pitch sound on the receiver end. Forums say this is an issue with either the software or speaker. It is very annoying and makes negative experience in the hands free mode. This is a great car but appears to be an ongoing problem that Honda refuses to address. Hands free calling is essential in most states."

"iPod would not play when connected. The car did not register that the iPod was attached. When an older iPod was attached, the car did register that. But, even then, the iPod would play for awhile and then stop. The only way it would start to play again was if you turned off the car and restarted. But that did not work all the time"

Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)

"This is the poorest designed infotainment system I have ever come across. It almost never understand a voice command. Setting destination by voice is nearly impossible. For some reason, Honda decided on this version of the info system to have the owner program in a list of people to call. Doesn't work well, is a terrible pain to manage and will only call by voice the previously programmed. Overall, a very poorly thought through system. When researching various vehicles prior to purchase, including CR reports and video, there was no mention of the infotainment system. My assumption was it was similar to other systems I have used. I was quite surprised when the salesman, after the purchase explained how this system worked. I think Honda has improved this in more recent years but the system provided is really terrible."
