I had the same problem with my Honda HRV !I was driving on the thruway Saturday in the left lane (lots of traffic) and my engine revved and lost power. It put me in a dangerous situation. Honda first said it was a sensor and now states it’s the transmission with metal shavings that have to be cleaned out. 64k miles, 18 months old! They are sending someone to analyze it and see if it will be warranted. From what I’m reading the HRV has transmission problems and I hope Honda does the right thing. The reason I bought a Honda was because people swear by them and I loved the engineering of the HRV. I have always had a Ford until less than 2 years ago. Never had problems except for 1 time after 12 years I had to replace a starter. What Honda does next will determine if they lose a customer.
At what mileage did you have your transmission fluid changed? Sorry for your HRV problems.I had the same problem with my Honda HRV !
transmission blew out in the middle of the freeway and my car stopped on the way to school; putting me in the danger of getting hit by cars behind me.
I towed my car to a honda dealer, and they said the extended warranty that I have purchased does not cover transmission, so I had to pay $3000 out of pocket!
New transmission only has 2 years warranty and I am SUR
After couple of months, my car is acting up again so took it to a repair shop I usually go, and they said transmission’s computer Modules something is not working and needs to be reprogrammed!
in addition, AC starting to act up and wont turn on when weathers is above 100!
I am soo Sad that I purchased 2016 HRV what a Piece of Work I have purchased, only cause I was counting on Honda’s reputation!!
They didn't they said that Honda just sent the one out overnight on that Tuesday. My mechanic family friend couldn't find anything himself searching his databases. If I had a shot in the dark guess, I know a lot of reports including my own had been filed on the NHTSA site so Honda may be doing it internally to keep it quiet? not sure.Good news. By chance did they give you a Bulletin #/TSB to research? I can’t find anything on a search.
Mazda's 6-speed SKYACTIVE-Drive automatic is impressively smooth, quick, and reliable. The only negative I can think of is the stigma associated with having "only" 6 speeds even if that's not a significant disadvantage in the real world.Mazda seems to be the way to go to avoid CVTs. If it weren't for the magic seat and high storage capacity, I would be driving a Mazda! I have a 8yr/120K miles Honda Care, hoping for the best.
It's good to "trust, but verify"!The HRV CVT TSB's look legit but still need to be confirmed. Zroger73 has 1 post on this forum.
If legit, this is a game changer and would explain all the HRV CVT failures.
