    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I have a 2014 CRV with 125,000 miles on it. Upon backing up, I get a loud humming sound coming from the rear of the car. It stops when not moving. If brakes are applied and I am still rolling, it is still there. The sound is not the brake pad wear indicator - not screechy like that, more of...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    It's a rainy day here in Raleigh, NC, today. I noticed that when I had my front wipers on (on the slowest intermittent setting), it instantly made several passes with my rear wiper when I put it in reverse to back out of a parking space. I think it might have made a couple gratuitous extra...
  5. 2003 EX - Rear Brake Backing Plate

    Problems & Issues
    My mechanic was doing a complete rear brake job for me (pads, rotors, calipers) and called with bad news. The rear brake backing plates were rusted out and barely attached.
