CR-V 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Purchased 2005 Honda CRV for teenaged daughter in December 2004. Her mother drove the car for the first time on March 5, 2005 and was unfamiliar with the severe torque steer present in the vehicle. After making a right turn onto a major highway under hard acceleration, the steering wheel slipped from my wife's hands and the car struck the curb on the right side of the road. This blew both tires on the right side. At my own expense, I had all four tire replaced and a four-wheel alignment done at an independent dealer. Torque steer is still very prevalent. I took the car to the dealer yesterday and I was told there was nothing wrong with the car that the pulling to the right was characteristic of the CRV. To the point where it steers you into a curb!?? I am told there is no fix for this condition. Now I am out $600 for repairs, and I'm not so sure I want my daughter driving this car.

I bought a 05 Honda CRV SE and I changed the tires to Goodyear assurance for better grip for the winter. The vehicle with correct tire pressure pulled to the right. The vehicle than was checked to fault in alignment twice (once from the Honda dealer and again at professional tire shop) and found no fault. The vehicle continued to pull to the right as well as having too much torque steer when it starts to accelerate from the a light or a complete stop. The vehicle is not even half a year old.
