2010 Honda CRV. Consumer writes in regards to transmission problems. The consumer stated in May 2012, the vehicle shifted from 5th gear to 3rd gear, while traveling at 65-70 mph on the interstate. The consumer stated the cruise control was engaged at the time of the incident. It happened twice again. On each occasion, he moved to the shoulder, turned the ignition off, put the gear shift in park, started the engine, re-set the cruise control, and proceeded.

2010 Honda CRV bought new. We have a driveline vibration noticed the day we took it home. We have 5 repair orders for the same problem with no resolution. 1 of the repair orders was done by an independent garage who noted the vibration and what he thought needed to be done but no repair was made. We are working with a lemon law attorney but don't feel like we are on the right track. I am a auto technician and not much of what I said was done. Honda is now trying to walk away from us. The lawyer said she filed a claim with Honda 2 times and it was "denied". I don't understand that since the Massachusetts lemon law, M.G.L. ch 90 7N 1/2 states that it is presumed that the lemon law is satisfied if either of the following requirements is met: 1. the car was presented for repair on 3 or more occasions for the same nonconformity within one year or 15,000 miles from the date of original delivery of the car and the problem still exists.. we clearly fit this but the 1st time around with the lawyer she said we did not qualify and said " I understand you have experienced "issues" with your vehicle but some of the "issues" you have experienced do not fall under the lemon law. Concerns related to brakes, rotors, tires, wheels, alignments, cosmetic issues, wear & tear- are all items specifically excluded in your warranty booklet and although the dealer may decide to perform repairs at no cost under "good-will", they do fall within the lemon law so the manufacturer is not liable and therefore will not make you an offer of settlement. " this is not a "wear and tear problem if the car is new!!!!

The 2010 CR-V has very sluggish acceleration from low speed and from a dead stop. We have a driveway that slopes down, and we have to floor the gas pedal to go up the drive way and even then it goes at a snail's pace. It is difficult to turn into traffic with out having to floor the gas pedal and even then, it can still be inconsistently sluggish (you never know how fast you start going or if you will start going). We have been in a number of near miss situations before we realized that since we can't judge whether the car will actually respond to the gas pedal, there can't be any cross traffic if we are going to pull out. I have contacted the dealer who acknowledges that there is a problem and that one of their service engineers has the CR-V and found the same thing, however, nothing is being done to mitigate the problem. Is going to take traffic accidents and deaths before Honda does something about this issue?

Extremely sluggish acceleration from low speeds and from a stop. It is awful to try to merge with traffic on entrances of interstates and highways and just crossing streets that require decent acceleration. This is a hazard to me and those coming on the main roads as well as vehicles following my entrance into traffic. We have connected Honda customer service and the dealer. Both have acknowledged there is a problem, but as of now have no corrections. We were told that the car is performing as designed. Are they waiting until there are deaths associated with the performance of the 2010 CRV like Toyota did?
