    Tomorrow, my '98 CR-V AWD is getting new rear wheel bearings. This vehicle has 234,800 Km on it and I'm sure these are the original bearings. The left one is very noisy (a grinding sound at road speeds) and the right not so much but since the V will be on the operating table, it's prudent to...

    I though I would run this by you guys and see what you think. I noticed my CRV sometimes gives a slight jerk when the auto transmission is changing gears. My previous car was a Civic and it always changed gears smoothly. Is this pretty normal with a CRV? I am not hearing any clunking sounds and...
