2015 Honda CR-V Vibration Issues Continue in Court
October 12, 2015 — Owners who have 2015 Honda CR-V vibration issues may get
their day in court, all under one roof in a California courtroom. Numerous
CR-V lawsuits were filed accusing Honda of selling new CR-V SUVs that
vibrate so severely occupants can get sick.
The plaintiffs claim Honda technicians have been lost about methods to fix
the vibrations and the automaker has been too slow in coming up with a fix.
Some owners report the vibration coming from the engine, while other CR-V
owners say the vibration originates from the transmission. It's a toss-up
which side is correct because Honda admits the vibration problems started
with the use of a direct injection "Earth Dreams" engine in combination with
a continuously variable transmission.
For its part, Honda knows about 2015 CR-V owners and their complaints about
vibrations and shaking because the automaker posted videos in response to
complaints (see below).
Honda says including the direct injection Earth Dreams engine and a
continuously variable transmission enabled Honda to enhance fuel efficiency
and increase engine torque. However, owners say they weren't told the engine
/transmission combination would cause occupants to get nauseated.
The automaker says the vibrations are known to occur while stopped with the
vehicle in gear, when driving between 1,100 to 1,500 rpm and when driving
between 1,800 to 2,200 rpm. Honda says it created a software update to
minimize the vibration for driving between 1,800 to 2,200 rpm. Additionally,
the automaker says the shaking and vibration doesn't cause safety or
operational concerns when driving the CR-V.
With 2015 Honda CR-V vibration lawsuits growing in number, the automaker
requested all class-action lawsuits be consolidated before one California
judge, something certain plaintiffs are against. One group of Honda owners
want the lawsuits to be consolidated in Ohio because it would be a more
centralized location for all members of the class-action lawsuits.
Honda argues consolidation should occur in California because American Honda
Motor is based in Los Angeles. Furthermore, two of six pending CR-V
lawsuits are located in California.
The proposed multidistrict litigation case is American Honda Motor Co. Inc.
CR-V Vibration Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation.
2I thought jap overpriced tincans r godcar
3看来 Honda 为了省钱，搞出事来了。可能会是偷鸡不着折把米。
弄不好，要 recall, 这个 recall 的花费很大。
为什么不老老实实的像 Mazda 那样用 传统的 AT ？
不知道这个技术有没有用在 Accord/Civic 上，那样的话 recall 的涉及面会很广。
