I'm a new member. I have a 2010 CRV with 16,500 miles on it. I think I may have seen a post in this board about a starter issue on the CRV, where someone was getting a metal to metal sound when starting the CRV in cold weather. I had the same thing happen on mine with only 13,000 miles on it when it started. At 16,500 the starter was just about ready to die. I brought it in for service and it DID need to be replaced. I was kind of hoping it would go away, but it did not. Honda told me this was a known issue with CRV, Accord and Civic on 2009-2011. Most of the time starters go at 50-100k miles, but this was a fluke I guess.
Other issues that happened in my 18 months of ownership included a minor recall due to a software update, which was corrected in 30 min at the dealer with a simple update, and a situation with the power locks getting stuck and either not locking or not unlocking intermittently. The lock issue was corrected by having the power locks set to open ALL doors at park instead of just the drivers door. For some reason this seems to keep everything operating smoothly.
Hope this helps,
