  • 75,000 miles
Vehicle was in driving motion at 50mph then started to slowly decelerate while on drive. Accelerator was increased but the engine was still wiring down. All indicators lights appeared on the dash board. Brakes seemed to lock and could not come to a complete stop until the car finally stopped from it slowly wiring down. Car stopped moving while on drive and would not budge. The speed indicator kept moving from 0 to 120 yet the car was not moving. Took it to a mechanic to run a diagnostic and it appears to be an internal transmission problem, everything else looks good yet the transmission is having issues. The car has always been kept up to date. The vehicle has about 75,000 miles.

  • 70,400 miles
I bought the car brand new in April of 2016, it has 70K miles on it, and Iżve never had an issue with it. Last week I was going about 40-50 mph and my dash said the gear was in neutral, and all the warning lights came on. Took it to a few places and it was determined that the transmission was totally shot.

The car has just passed the 80 000 miles mark, as I use the car to travel between portland and san francisco. I missed 60 000 miles service and instead had it done at the 80 000 miles mark. Two weeks after the service the transmission has fallen apart.

problem #3

  • 46,000 miles
While driving 80 mph with the cruise set I noticed the vehicle start to heavily accelerate. I immediately turned the cruise off and applied the brake. The brake did no stop the car from accelerating. I managed to slow down enough to shut the vehicle off. All dash board lights came on. I started the car up again and it started jerking as if the brake and gas were being pressed at the same time. The car was towed via Honda care.

The seats and seating position in the Hr-V are very dangerous. The seat is so uncomfortable and due to this, I am sitting so close to the awkwardly placed steering wheel that in the event of an accident, the airbag would probably not protect me. The cvt in the Hr-V is so unrefined that when I lift off the gas pedal a little, not all the way, at speeds under 40mph, the car engine brakes so severely that I have to use my left foot to put on my brake lights immediately. I was warned by a fellow commuter that I'm at risk for being rear ended. I've driven for 45+ years and never had a vehicle so burdensome and difficult to control. Total loss of money on my part. Honda seems like they don't care about the buyer. They make sure to only allow 5 minute test drives. I didn't notice these problems until about 10 days after purchasing the vehicle.
