Transmission Judder in Honda CR-V Vehicles
2011-2014 Models Have Experienced Shaking and Vibrating at Low Speeds
2011-2014 Honda CR-V models have been reported to experience a transmission “judder” – a vibration, shaking, or shudder when the vehicle is driven at low acceleration. This defect could affect steering and transmission shifting while on the road. Despite the apparent danger of this defect, Honda has only offered minor fixes that are only available to vehicle owners who specifically ask for them or are covered under their powertrain warranty. These hit-or-miss solutions should be available to every Honda CR-V owner while Honda develops a more permanent resolution. If you are the owner of a 2011-2014 Honda CR-V that has experienced a transmission judder or are worried about driving your Honda, contact McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, to schedule your free consultation today!

Transmission “Judder” in 2011-2014 Honda CR-V Vehicles
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, is investigating the need to bring a class action related to the transmission judder of 2011-2014 Honda CR-V vehicles. Owners have reported a judder, shudder, or shake stemming from the transmission of the vehicle. According to Honda, “[a] surge, vibration, or judder may be felt while driving under light acceleration.”
This defect could be extremely dangerous when driving on the road, even while at low speeds. A transmission shake or judder could cause steering problems, accidental overcompensation, or transmission shifting issues.

Honda Has Offered Only Minor Fixes.
Honda issued a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB #15-086) providing a software update meant to minimize the possibility of judder occurrence. However, this is only provided at the customer’s request. If the customer is unaware of the dangers associated with driving their Honda CR-V, they will not receive the update. This software update did not offer a complete fix. Honda later issued a second TSB (TSB #17-040) to address the update’s inability to prevent or rectify the transmission judder.
If the update does not resolve the issue, the torque converter could be damaged and would need to be replaced. Unfortunately, this will only be provided if the vehicle is still covered under Honda’s powertrain warranty.
Honda also claims transmission fluid breakdown could play a role and has offered transmission fluid changes to Honda CR-V owners. However, Honda once again only provides this service if the customer is still covered under the powertrain warranty.
