Noise in rear of car the dealership did a brake inspection and said the problem was caused by rear brake pads are stuck in the mounts and are scoring rear rotors. They suggested replacement of rear brakes clean and lube mounts and slides on calipers. This happened at 44,400 miles.

1. started to hear metal on metal sound coming from the driver side rear wheel when brakes were applied. 2. the failure was a stuck brake caliper causing brake pads to wear down to metal. 3. resurfaced rotors, replaced brake pads and unstuck caliper.

The back passenger's side wheel had a "hot" smell coming from it. Honda service determined I had a brake pad that had gotten stuck. Brake pad was replaced, as well as fixing the rotor. The smell continued. Took the car back in and they cannot find one thing "rubbing" that would cause this "hot" smell. They are stumped. I am afraid to drive the car due to the strong smell, wondering if something is going to wear out or catch on fire. Many internet blogs have shown many, many Honda owners to be experiencing the same thing. No other tires/wheel wells smell hot - some owners believe it is due to the exhaust system next to the tire.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CR-V. the contact stated that the vehicle pulls to the right and makes a loud grinding noise when driving in reverse. He took the vehicle to the dealer three times for the failure and they changed the brake oil differential and suggested that the oil be changed every three to four thousand miles. This corrected the failure temporarily, but the grinding noise recurred a week later and the vehicle began pulling to the left again. A report was filed with the manufacturer and they stated that a representative will inspect the vehicle. The vehicle has not yet been inspected. The failure mileage was 21,804 and current mileage was 92,000.

problem #1

Sep 052008


  • 14,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Honda CR-V. while driving approximately 40 mph, the antilock brake system engaged when the brake pedal was depressed. The contact rear ended another vehicle. As a result, the bumper completely detached from the front end of the vehicle and the radiator was damaged. The air bags failed to deploy. The contact sustained major injuries because the seat belt locked and would not unlatch. The passenger in the other vehicle was uninjured. A police report was filed and the vehicle was towed to the dealer. Prior to the failure, the contact heard a grinding sound while driving in reverse, but there was no failure at that time. The current and failure mileages were 14,000.
