Notes: Mercedes-Benz vehicles may come with an "Attention Assistant" to alert you if you fall asleep behind the wheel, but the 2015 Honda CR-V has a different approach: just shake the heck out of you so you never fall asleep in the first place.

Owners have complained that the popular SUV shakes violently both while idling and while driving. Buyer beware.

When the temperature is below 30 degrees, the windshield wiper fluid does not discharge to clean the windshield. The dealer says that this will happen because the windshield wiper fluid resorvior is close to the bumpber and therefore it freezes. Driving in snow condition is extremely hazardous as you can not clean the muddy windshield. It's matter of time when humans will start to get hurt due to this flaw. Honda needs to own the issue and come up with solution. The wiper fluid will start to work after at least 1/2 hour of driving. The only explanation I got from the dealer that this issue is resolved once the engine warms up, which is not a fact as in my experience the vehicle needs to on for 1/2 hr or more.

This car has been an absolute nightmare. I literally cannot keep it running. Honda now uses soy based wiring which attracts rodents. I have several other cars in the driveway plus farm equipment. Mowers, lawn mowers etc. The rodents target specifically the Honda. Had to have the power steering sub harness replaced twice last fall and windshield washer tank, at 3020 miles, 4434 miles, 5045 miles. First two repairs were sub harness. It now is in the shop again for loss of power steering due to rodent damage at 16660 miles, loss of power steering sub harness. I had a Honda CR-V 04 before this one and it did not get rodent damage. This is directly related to Honda's soy based wiring..... they will not honor any customer satisfaction at all concerning this issue. The dealer where I bought the car all but laughed in my face. The dealer now doing the repairs has been very respectful although Honda will take no responsibility for this problem. I am concerned about this also as safety issue...... three times now my power steering has gone out. Luckily I was still in my yard and was able to park the car safely and have it towed. I have not tried to drive it once the steering goes out... very difficult to turn the vehicle and I would think very dangerous at highway speeds.... car was in reverse and motion when power steering loss occurred.....

Sunroof explosion: Driving on interstate, approximately 65 mph in light rain when a loud shotgun-like explosion above my head occurred. No other vehicles were near at the time and I was not near an overpass. All windows of the vehicle were closed. Pulled over and discovered a jagged V shaped hole in the mid/right side of the sunroof of the vehicle. However, there was only a small amount of glass between the sunroof glass and the sunshade, indicating an outward force. Took the vehicle to Honda dealer where purchased for warranty repair. They first refused, stating that their technician determined the damage was caused by a rock strike. I disagreed, showing photos taken right after the occurrence that demonstrate an outward force. I also pointed to current NHTSA reports, news articles documenting several hundred other cases in various makes and models of vehicles with sunroofs and the improbability of a rock coming from the middle of nowhere to strike downward on the only glass structure available without leaving any trace of occurrence anywhere else on the vehicle. The dealership contacted Honda usa maintenance who also refused to honor the vehicle warranty, reasoning that although this problem is well documented by the NHTSA in other vehicles, there is no documented record of an occurrence with this particular model in this particular year. According to the dealer they can only compare apples to apples and just because 2011 Honda Accord had this documented sunroof problem, 2015 Honda Cr-vs with the same symptoms are a different problem.

I purchased a new 2015 Honda cv R. while driving in the rain my windshield wipers were not operating properly. They were leaving a stream of water across my windshield directly in front of my vision, distorting the view of the road. I took my car back to the dealership to have them check it.when I got my car back the mechanic told me he replaced the rubber in the blade and its good to go. With the next rain I saw that I had the same problem. I took my car back to the dealer, they worked on it for a while with out fixing the problem. I was then told that this condition is normal. I did not believe it. I told him to bring out another cr V to see if it had the same wiper problem. It did!!!! I talked several other cv R owners who are have the same dangerous condition and are hoping for a recall from Honda to correct this before something bad happens
