Excessive vibration - the engine is at 600 RPM when idling. This creates a noticeable vibration throughout the car at idle. This is also a problem when driving in heavy traffic. This vibration is causing me dizziness and sometimes I have been unable to continue driving (and I needed to be picked up). I told the service department at my Honda dealership. They said that all 2016 Honda CR-V idle at 600 RPM. They offered no resolution to this problem.

Vibration at idle in gear. I found the vibration on the second day I got the car with only about 100 miles on it. It vibrates at idle in gear. It only happens when the car is at 600-700 RPM. When I turn on the heater to max so it goes to 800 RPM, the vibration stops. But once the heater is off and it drops back to 600-700 RPM, the vibration comes back. Very disappointed since Honda just claimed that they fixed this problem. Apparently not true.
