There are good reasons Honda sells a lot of CR-Vs, among them, the compact SUV checks the main boxes most buyers are looking for in terms of affordability and functionality. Compact dimensions and responsive handling keep it maneuverable, easy to park, and enjoyable to drive. Rear-seat room and cargo space are generous too.

What Owners Say

Air or water leaks

"Water pump went bad and was replaced under warranty."

Edd P., OK (2015 Honda CR-V 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Sunroof leaked due to manufacturing defect (kinked drain hose). After dealer repaired it, there are numerous squeaks and rattles in the headliner"

Anonymous, MA (2015 Honda CR-V EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"As previously reported this model year CRV as an entrodanary amount of windshield noise along the top of the windshield mounting. It may be from the "moon roof" as well but the top of the windshield is noisy; no air seems to be getting in. I think it is a design problem that my dealer, SCHOMP HONDA in Highlands Ranch, CO. , has told me a new design is being used for the 2017 CRV has "fixed it." I have not driven a 2017 CRV so do not know if he is just blowing smoke. Anyhow, when my lease expires"

Seals and/or weather-stripping

"Transmission was a problem from the day I bought it. It just took years to get Honda to fix it. The dealer I bought it from never could fix it. A new local dealer diagnosed the problem and said that it needed to be replace. Honda said it was an axel problem. Axels were replaced and it did not fix the problem. They finally agreed to do what the dealer asked and replace the transmission. Runs very smoothly now. Deacon Jones Honda the greatest."

Slipping transmission

"It may not be a slipping transmission, but I want to register a known complaint. After the car is warmed up and the AC is not on. The car vibrates excessively when stopped. Took to dealer on 4-14-15, no fix"

"vibration at 2000 rpms Apparently this is the way the CVT transmission operates. It is distracting and sure leaves me regretting that I traded in the 2008 CRV which had no unusual transmission related vibrations"

"Transmission hesitates and slips and seems to take much time to decide what I am asking it to do. Going down a 5% or higher grade, the transmission over-revs"

Jack B., CT (2015 Honda CR-V Touring 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The 2015 Honda CRV is a terrible car! It lunges unexpectedly while driving and after putting it into park. I was scared to drive it in the winter because I never felt fully in control. I was afraid it would lunge and hit the car in front of me after I parked! The braking system makes very strange clunking noises when brakes are applied. The car also has a terrible inconsistent vibration while idling. Sometimes it's fine but sometimes it is so bad it shakes and makes me feel nauseous. One morning the car was making really horrible noises which sounded like the transmission or U-joint was falling out, especially when I braked. I was unable to drive it so I had to have it towed to the dealership for repair. A service bulletin had been issued for repairs but the Honda dealership did not let me know even though I had taken my car to them previously with all my concerns! Lucky for me, it was still under warranty. They checked it out completely and did the work suggested in the bulletin. The service which was done changed the mileage for the worse. I was required to sign paperwork prior to the work being done saying I was OK with the reduced mileage. I am able to drive it and some of the problems seem much better but I don't really trust that it is reliable. The brakes still clunk sometimes but not as badly. I plan to change to a Subaru or Toyota as soon as my lease is up. Honda corporation was NOT helpful in any way with my concerns and while the car was being serviced (it took a week)! This vehicle had great reviews from everyone when I leased it. Now there are thousands of reviews online which corroborate these problems. Some drivers report a big improvement after the service was done and others do not. It made my car better than it was. It's a shame because my previous Honda (2012 CRV) was a dream to drive and I loved it!"

"cvt transmission did not shift correctly since car was new. it was slipping very bad and engine was going to red line when you try to pull out in traffic. Dealer said they could not fix it because all the CRV's were like that. I traded it in and took a $7500 loss. The next month I got a recall letter saying they had to reprogram the computer because it was damaging the transmissions"

"The transmission would shift going down hill into a lower gear and cause the engine RPMs to increase. When accelerating on flat terrain the engine RPMs would increase but the car would not accelerate"

Carl B., VA (2015 Honda CR-V EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"When at idle at a stop, the car vibrates. If I turn on the AC, the engine RPM increases and the vibration stops. This issue has become much more noticeable since the last recall to reprogram the transmission"

Anonymous, LA (2015 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"My car has a CVT (continuously variable transmission) and what is called hesitant acceleration. When gas pedal is pushed, the transmission hesitates to engage, tach drops out, and causes a lack of response from the engine. This varies in degree and time length making it difficult to adjust to. Dealer says nothing is wrong, but online search finds many others with the same problems."

R S., NY (2015 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The ratio changes in the transmission would cause vibration when driving. This would happen mostly at low speeds. A reprogramming of the computer controller seems to have corrected the issue."

Raymond R., OH (2015 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Idle became rougher and rougher. Drove to dealer for analysis. A reflash seemed to take care of 80% of the rough idle problem. Soon afterward the problem returned, rough idle. It again grew worse and taken to dealer. Again computer was reflashed for a fix. Finally car was just about undriveable. Had it towed to dealer and parked overnight. Next day I received a letter in mail detailing a recall for my year/model. Called dealer to inform them. They reflashed again with recall update and that seemed to take care of 95% of the idle problem, which still persists today."
