Front struts fail prematurely; this may led to other structure damage and safety.

Bought vehicle used in 2008 with 18,000 miles. After several weeks began to realize there was a definite pull to the right. Went to a local dealer for maintenance over the past five years and mentioned this pull. Each time I was told they did not identify any pull. When I took my car in this week they said they were able to identify a pull and they suggested an alignment and many other maintenance tasks totaling $3,700. I replaced my tires and this helped some what, but the pull still exists. After checking various sites, I've come to realize pulling to the right is a common issue in Honda Cr-vs.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CRV. The contact stated that while driving approximately 20 mph, a loud grinding noise emitted from the outside of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who stated the failure was contributed to the front driver's side wheel bearing. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 42,000 miles


1st failure was tires in rear of the vehicle were worn on the inside causing the tire to deflate. Returned to the dealer asking them what happened. They blamed the tire manufacturer. Put new tires on had all the necessary dealer scheduled maintenance. Rotation ect. The new tires installed at 42,000 began to shimmy badly in the rear of the vehicle at 63,000 miles. Took the vehicle to a Honda dealer in fl and the tires had to be replaced in the rear because of the same wear as the 1st set. The rear suspension can not be adjusted to correct this problem. The solution was after market (not Honda mfg parts) with an adjustable arm. The camber can now be adjusted to make the vehicle safe to drive, the tires would have worn out in an area not easy to see an cause a blowout at high speed would be a real problem. Honda Corp will not admit fault. I see many people on the internet with the same problem as I experienced. The extended vehicle ins. I purchased will not pay for this problem. They say Honda has modified this part and they will not pay. This should be a recall in my opinion because of the safety issue. I was lucky to have my tire failure occur at a slow speed. At 70 mpg it would have been bad and everyone would have blamed the tires. But the real problem is the vehicle's unable to adjust the alignment to stop abnormal tire wear. Honda and all the dealers are in denial of the problem.

I purchased my CR-V as a certified used car with 7000 miles. The tire noise kept getting louder as the miles grew. By 18,000 miles I couldn't take it and went to the dealer. They said my tires were cupped and needed replaced. I put new tires on and had it aligned by the dealer. They could not get it in spec and replaced the rear springs. They aligned it, but I still had tire noise. Dealer said I bought cheap ($125/pc) tires. These tires are also now cupped so bad at 50,000 miles that I need to replace them, a 70K tire with only 30K on them. I also smell hot rubber on the rear passenger tire much like others have said, and only this tire. Coincidently this one is the cupped noise maker.

2007 Honda CRV produced in Japan has defective shock absorber assemblies which allow the car to bounce undamped on rough road surfaces and can lead to loss of control. The us manufactured units do not exhibit this behavior. Additionally Honda lists different replacement parts for the us and Japanese built 2007 models so the parts are not interchangeable.

Defective front and rear shock absorbers lead to excessive pitching of vehicle even on minor uneven asphalt. Owners with this defect are swerving their vehicles to avoid rough pavement increasing risk of collisions. As I understand it the problem is due to a defective batch of shock absorbers included on some Japanese built 2007 crvs. Us built units seem to have avoided this issue.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CR-V. while driving 35 mph, the vehicle pulled to the right. The dealer stated that the vehicle needed a wheel alignment. The vehicle was aligned; however, the failure continued. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer and they performed another wheel alignment, but the failure continued. The dealer advised the contact to speak with the manufacturer. The manufacturer stated that a modification failure was the cause. As of November 2, 2007, the dealer had not repaired the vehicle. The failure mileage was 25 and current mileage was 880. Updated 11/21/07

Safety hazard- 2007 Honda CRV unstable when being driven on grooved highway. Vehicle oscillates severely diagonally from front to rear and vice versa, when this road condition is experienced. Oversteering to correct this problem could result in erratic lane change or shift. Same road condition does not impact other vehicles that we drive on the same stretch of road. Calls and visits to the dealer (South bay Honda, los gatos, ca.) have resulted in a response of "it's just the car" and nothing has been done. I feel it is a problem with honda2007 CRV's suspension system / tires when this type of road is encountered. I feel that potential buyers and operators should be made aware of this condition, and that corrective action by the manufacturer is required.
