2004 Honda CR-V


#1

When turning this vehicle sharp (in either direction) from a stand still it feels like the tires are hitting the rumble strip on the side of a highway. I don’t think the tires are rubbing the vehicle.

Any ideas?


#2

Is it the same for both right and left turns?


#3

It may due to your AWD if you have it. Have the rear portion of AWD looked at, typically it just involves simply replacing the fluid in CRV’s.


#4

Oddly enough, it’s the fluid in the rear differential. It should be replaced at 30,000 mile intervals or every 4 years. I had mine replaced a week ago and the noise went away. Honda dealers are well aware of the problem and have a technical service bulletin to alert them to the problem. If the noise doesn’t completely go away, they have an option to go further. See the attached TSB.
