2007 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #4

Nov 072016


  • 79,700 miles


Driving at 65 mph on freeway and front wheels began to shimmy and vehicle slow down. Stepped harder on the accelerator and managed to get to the shoulder. Then managed to get the car up an exit ramp at which point the brakes locked up and car wouldn't move. Hauled the car to a dealer who said the brakes were "contaminated" and all parts need to be replaced, including the ABS module for $6,300. An independent auto repair indicated there was a firmware problem with the ABS module and readouts for the front wheel sensors(obd scanner). Independant repair shops say the dealer is the only one who has the equipment to deal with the ABS system.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CR-V. when the contact depressed the brake pedal, the brakes made a loud screeching noise. In order to stop the vehicle, the contact had to depress the brake pedal at a distance further than normal because the vehicle did not stop in a timely manner. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the brakes needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The failure recurred. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 117,000.

The vehicle had all the lights on the dash illuminated. It lost its ABS and vehicle stability control. It did not cause any damage to us since the road was not that crowded. After that we always had to keep a safe distance. Got inspected at Honda showroom and they found that the vehicle stability modulator was not working and it would cost $2000 to have it fixed.
