CR-V 4-cyl

  • 24,700 miles
Honda CRV 2009 the exhaust pipe is too close to the right rear tire. The heat from the exhaust pipe is damaging the tire and the smell is entering the cabin. There is a smell of burning rubber when parking car after driving. The original equipment tire had premature failure of the belt and had to be replaced. The condition continues on the new tire. Suggest wrapping the exhaust pipe with a length of insulating tape to protect the tire from heat damage.
