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.

My new Honda 2015 CR-V LX is vibrating badly. It vibrates in any speed and on parking. It started on the 5 day and got worse to the point that I feel nauseous. It creates very unsafe driving for me. My body shakes. Driver seat shakes. And vibration is very loud. Honda dealership knew the problem but still sold me defective car. Driving this car creates dangerous situation on the road. It is difficult to change lane, transmission starts making loud sounds.

In Jan 2015 I purchased my fourth Honda since (and my second CRV) for the absolute reliability, quality, durability, and peace of mind that I have always felt with the brand. That however changed dramatically on July 16, 2015 when, at approximately 2:30pm, I was driving my vehicle in a parking lot at approx 5mph. As I eased into the parking space with my foot on the brake pedal, my car suddenly lurched forward. It was with such force that the entire car went up onto the curb and into the bushes beyond. I could not stop my car! beyond these bushes was a main road with heavy traffic. Intuitively, I slammed on the emergency brake, which ultimately stopped the car. My car was so entangled in the bushes that I needed to have it towed out. On July 21, the Honda dealer scanned all systems for dtcs, tested brakes, and checked throttle pedal operation and found "at this time the braking system, throttle system and safety override systems are functioning as designed." Upon further investigation, it is apparent that 'unintended acceleration while braking' is a well-documented issue. I contacted Honda Corp on July 21 and was assigned a regional case mgr who informed me that she would schedule an american Honda rep to inspect my car. To date, I still await follow up action from my case mgr. This event has caused, and continues to cause, great anxiety and stress for me. I use this unreliable and unsafe vehicle daily and am constantly worried that this mechanical or electrical aberration will repeat itself, and with a less fortunate outcome.

2015 CR-V touring vibrates in park or drive (when the car is not moving). The rpms are about 550 to 600 and at times seems like the engine wants to turn off. Vibration overall is pretty strong, I hope Honda fixes this issue. A/C can be on or off, same issue.

My newly purchased 2015 Honda CRV was just 4 days old from the dealership, when I drove to work from my home (35 miles into my commute). I was going from 55 mph to 45 mph when the car started to vibrate. The vibration was noticeable because I felt it in my hands, while gripping the steering wheel, and on the drivers-side floorboard. When I made it to work, I parked but kept the car on. The gear shift was in "drive" and the vibration continued. I moved the gear shift to "neutral" and you can actually hear the sound of the car change and the vibration eased a bit. It's very upsetting to know that when I asked the Honda dealership if they were aware of the problem, they said only 1 person complained, but that they've sold hundreds of crvs. Today, Aug 5, 2015, I brought in my Honda to the dealership (they were aware that I was bringing in the Honda and they were nice to give me a "loaner" car) while they did an inspection. They immediately said it sounded like it was a wheel alignment issue. Later that afternoon, when I picked up the CRV, I was told that the dealership service department didn't find any problems and that it's safe to drive. I asked them if they've received any notification about the vibration issue. That's when they gave me a Honda tech line summary article dated April 7, 2015. If the Honda dealership had disclosed that information, I would not have purchased this vehicle!! I asked one salesman specifically about any recalls or complaints and I was told there were none! please do something about this problem!!!!

Severe, continuing vibration of the steering wheel, drivers seat, passenger seat, drivers side floor and gas pedal when driving at 60 mph or higher. This problem was noted when the vehicle was purchased (it was a trade from another dealership) and was told the tires needed to be balanced. The vehicle has been serviced 3 times for this problem on 6/20/15, 6/27/15 and 7/2/15. Each time the vibration began within 2 days of service. The longer the vehicle is driven, the worse the vibration becomes. The service department at the dealership says they will solve the issue, they haven't. I contacted another dealership and was told Honda is aware of the issue and working on a fix. I purchased this vehicle a month ago, now have 2200 miles and no solution to this problem. It is terrible!! when driving on the highway everyday (30 miles each way) to and from work, the vehicle vibrates so much I am fearful of something severe happening while I drive.

To NHTSA I recently purchased 2015 Honda CR-V AWD on June 18th, 2015. Day after I purchased the vehicle, I found out that there is very obvious vibration on driver and passenger seat when the vehicle idle or stays under 2200 RPM. I took it to the dealership and even they had agreed with the problem. I am aware that Honda is currently analyzing the issue and have not found or fixed the vibration problem yet. I am requesting NHTSA to investigate 2015 Honda CR-V AWD. They are still selling these vehicles when they do not have solution. Thanks, best regard

I was driving 40 mph on a country road in solano county, California a couple weeks ago. As the road made a jog to the right, another vehicle travelling in the opposite direction toward me was momentarily in front of my car due to the jog in the road. My collision avoidance system evidently detected the other vehicle and momentarily applied the brakes on my car. Had there been another vehicle following me at the time, there is a high probability that my car would have been rear-ended. There is a similar issue with the collision avoidance system I recently read about which affects similar Acura SUV's. the Acura affected are being recalled. I don't see a recall notice on similar Honda CRV's.
