    Any updates on the road noise? I am starting to drive our 2011 SE more often and the combination of road noise and wind noise make it feel like a trolley. My other car is a Camry. I also test drove a Highlander last week and was impressed by how quiet it was.
    I have the Duelers on it from factory, only 8K miles, so don't want to waste money on new tires, but then don't want to sell the car this soon either (and take the biggest depreciation hit).

    From what I have read in this forum the rear suspension is solidly attached to the body with no sound insulating devices. My guess is that they can't use insulators because of the design, or they would have. If there is one common thread of agreement on CRV problems it is cabin noise. The sound generation from tires gets worse as they age because the tread gets harder as they age (from heat) and as they wear, by design with some tires.

    Ok everyone. I have a 2005 CRV i-ctdi with 100k miles on it. I have had lots of drive shaft problems which are now fixed. I had really bad road noise especially on rough sufaced roads but it was silent on smooth roads. I had new tyres fitted. i asked for quiet ones and ended up with Duelers. There was no difference to the road noise but it was still silent on smooth surfaces. Next I had a wheeel bearing go with the usual grinding noises. I had that fixed and now NO ROAD NOISE. I dont know why as the bearing made no noise on the smooth roads but must have been ratteling on the rough ones.

    I have a 2011 EX AWD. I have replaced OEM tires with Michelin Defender 102T, no change in noise.
    I had a kayak rack tower that I replaced with folding, insulated Thule J racks, a little change in noise.
    I have ordered a windscreen for the sunroof, it MIGHT lower the wind noise over the rack. My previous Honda Accord was a 1996 LX wagon, it was noisier(supposedly the vents at rear of cabin).
    If all this car requires is more insulation, where do you get that? I had thought I wanted the window shades, those made my 2005 Accord EX noisier.
    I have driven many cars over the 50 years, only had one car that was quiet. A 1968 Mercedes sedan, only I couldn't afford the maintenance. hahaha.
    I have never sat in an American car that is quiet, and if one was quiet it floated down the road like a bobber on a fish line. I was thinking of trading this one but have no idea what to get that has same amount of room, with high mpg,, that has a reliable history. But aren't we all looking for that mystery car.

    Yes, CR-V's are known for being loud but how about the 2012 CR-V? Is the 2012 just as loud?
    Hopefully someone will answer your question, without going off about tires, but let's face it, the CRV can't be perfect at everything!

    I know this thread is pretty old but I bought a used 2011 CRV and it is probably the worst car for road noise I have ever had. I hate to sell it already as I like everything else about it. I have the Dueller tires. Some people seem to think that other tires help, some don't think so. The car only has 26,000 miles so I really don't want to replace tires if it won't solve the problem. The previous owner even had spray on undercoating done but it is still noisy.

    Does anyone have experience with adding noise deadening material under the carpet and in door panels?
    Brand names? Results?

    Thanks in advance.

    Right, tire wear: I recently changed my rather worn (but not illegally worn) tires for new ones. Those tires were on it when bought a year ago (2005 manual). The change reduced noise quite considerably - very pleased . Smoothness of ride also much better. Both old AND new are Pirelli Scorpion STR 215/65 16 inch.

    My '10 EXL with Duelers was pretty quiet except for elevated, concrete, road ways. After alignment, especially rear toe, and it was quiet even on roads where before it was noisy.

    Today I reduced the air pressure from 31 to 30 psi at 70 degrees F. and the tires make noticeably more noise. These tires are Michelin, 235/70/17 LTX M/S2 which have a fairly aggressive tread and make a lot of road noise.

    So, you could try alignment, and higher tire pressure. On the other hand, higher tire pressure may well make other tires worse.

    Tires alone can make a big difference, it worked for the 07 I had.

    Adding sound deadener is also a big help, I helped my brother cover everything under the carpets and doors to his car (non Honda), although a lot of work, there were big improvements.

    I bought my 08 crv .car drove nice except the road noise sounded like loud humming in the ear it was horrible.so i bought new goodyear assurance touring .all noise stopped it was now a wonderful ride .the biggest down fall to the production to the crv was the choice of tires the duelers and continental. Never so many bad reviews on tires and road noise in my life
