2015 Honda CR-V Vibration Problem Has No Solution

October 01, 2015 By: LemonLaw Category: Honda, vibration

If you are driving a 2015 Honda CR-V, you may be questioning if the V stands for vibration. We are receiving numerous calls on the 1-800-LEMON-LAW hotline from folks complaining of a Honda CR-V vibration problem in the 2015 models, and according to a tech line summary article issued by Honda for their dealers, it does not appear that the service departments have a fix.

The article, distributed to dealers April 7, 2015, reads “We’re aware of customer reports of this concern and we’re actively reviewing it by analyzing available data and customer comments and doing actual vehicle testing. Our review is still in progress, so there’s no product improvement available at this time.” The vibration may be present when the car is at idle, under light acceleration, at low speeds, between 1100 and 1500 rpms, or between 1600 and 2200 rpms.

So in the case of the Honda CR-V vibration problem, what do you do if you are dealing with an issue and the manufacturer does not have a fix? How can you provide proof that you have continuously been experiencing the problem? Should you suffer with a problem if the car company has no solution? Are you expected to just deal with it?

The answer is simple–you need to continue to bring the matter to an authorized manufacturers dealership and make sure they provide a repair invoice for each visit, with date, mileage in and mileage out. The invoice should illustrate that the adviser verifies the problem but no fix is available. Every time you are at the dealer, whether for an oil change or a service, make sure you mention that problem is existing and make sure it is recorded. And once you are back to the shop three or more times, you should look into your rights under State and Federal Laws. We have successfully represented several clients so far who have complained of the Honda CR-V vibration problem.

The bottom line–Do not let the car company take you for a ride. Even if they do not have a fix for an issue, the clock on your claim is ticking and if you don’t take action, no one is going to take action for you.

    Can I pursue a lemon law on 2015 Honda CRV vibrations. It feels unsafe and I am waiting for car to lurch. I am a senior and this is probably my last car purchase and I fell like I was treated fraudulently. I have contacted Honda and asked them to take care back or exchange for something with V6 . I do not think this is a far out request. We saved for this car and paid cash. When you are our age this is big deal.

        I contacted Honda and there is no repair. They will do nothing and refuse to.

        • #4 LemonLaw says:

          @Ron: Keep getting invoices which illustrate that you are bringing this matter to their attention. If they are saying there is no fix, have them write that on the invoice.

            My daughter has a 2014 Honda Odyssey that jerks. The dealership had to replace the engine, because a piston ring was missing. Honda said this is a new problem to them and that it is a first. I do not believe Honda. My two grandchildren could be at risk, if the problem is not corrected. Has anyone had similar problems?

              Honda is going to change out motor mounts, seat head rest dampeners, tail gate dampeners. They said there would be loss in gas mileage. I have not been able to find anything online about this. Is there compensation for decreases gas mileage form what was advertised at time of purchase?

                      Honda CRV 2015 Vibration .

                      Last year I purchased a 2015 Honda CRv and as with most other owners, it has a bad vibration issue while at a stop in drive mode with foot on the brakes. I also vibrates at low speeds between 40 -50 mph and around 70 mph. I has been in the shop 4 times but still vibrates while stopped in the drive mode (in gear with foot on brake). I see all the post from other owners with the same issue. Does anyone have a current statement from Honda Corp. on the problem? I know there was a class action law suit but I do not know the status of it. I am look to get a certified service center to document the issues on my 2015 Honda CRv and then file a claim with Honda. Theyhad to know about the problem prior to sending the 2015 Honda CRv to the dealers, but nobody informed the buyer. Your Update Thoughts on Honda? I bought a $30,000. Vibrating seat!! This is unacceptable

No one wants help

                              I can said now that I’m a proudly ex-owner of a 2016 CRV (very expensive washer machine, massage chair…you name it), it was known to happen with the 2015s( service bulletin 15-046) but honda claims it was fixed(which is a lie), so I got a new crv 2016, my mistake, I only had it for 3 months and about 1500 miles but I had enough with the vibration issue, lucky me I felt all the 3 modes described in the 2015 bulletin,. The vibration started @ about 500 miles and getting worst every day, took the car back to the dealer (2 of them) first one told me it was normal, they all vibrate and this is a “characteristic of the car”, the second one agreed with me that it was vibrating but after 10 mins., came back with the same b**l S**t as the first one, what a waste of my time, I called honda and created a case, they assigned me a case manager that called me and kept repeating that’s a “characteristic of the car”( if so, how come is not listed in the brochure?), his only goal was to get me to agree with his stupidity, which I didn’t, I will never purchase a honda again, quality went down the toilet, is not a reliable car anymore and of course their service department sucks.

                                Brandon Franklin,
                                I have 2016 Crv with on on doff sometimes vicious vibrations at red lights that makes me sick and vibrates my coffee cup… I am absolutely sick after this, my head feels shaken, my sciatica in my leg feels aggravated… I had 3 brand new Hondas before and this 2016 piece of shit is the first one with this issue. Dealer says they notice the vibration but it is “normal” for this design of car… That’s just BS.
                                I think I need a lawyer.
