Worst vehicle after 4 years of ownership
December 11, 2018
Lists of stuff that happened in the 4 years of owning this Vehicle just want to let others aware of this horrible vehicle. I traded in on a 2019 Buick Encore at least I got $14,000 towards my Buick. But this review is on the 2014 Honda CR-V EX that had 80,000 miles on it. First off at 1,000 miles it had a very annoying fluttering/whine type of noise that I hear in the engine area that always happens around 50-60mph, it seems to only happen when I let off the gas or I'm coasting at that speed. As soon as you press the gas it goes away, you can even hear it over the radio sometimes when the volume is at 12. Honda says it is normal for the car to do this, not buying it because the car only had 1,000 miles on it. Second the vehicle occasionally when it press on the accelerator, the car doesn't move for about a second, then it accelerates normally. Then when the car is accelerated slowly, the engine flutters when reaching 3rd gear. Third when cold outside a grinding noise (metal to metal like) at first start up, lasting up to 2 seconds. For a newer car, this is unacceptable, and embarrassing, has happened since 10,000 miles. Fourth, I don't drive rough so brakes shouldn't be a problem. Anyways dealer says have to change 2 rotors and all brake pads, had to pay $700. Left a feedback, people from dealership called but basically said it is a fair price to have it changed. Why do you change stuff if you're not going to test it? Spent almost 30k and still dealing with WEAR AND TEAR, I mean after 1 year.This 2014 CRV is full of problems, won't be buying another one again. Honda is known for reliability, but not anymore, I don't recommend any CR-V to anyone after this costly vehicle thats supposed to be dependable, maybe Honda was years ago but not now a days. So greatful not to own it anymore, I'm very happy so far with the 2019 Buick Encore.
