  1. Car is sluggish and incosistent when accelerating or keeping speed with pedal

    Diesel CR-V
    My car has been increasingly getting worse over a period of 2 years with this problem. When driving the car acts sluggish when trying to accelerate slowly. It also happens when i keep a certain speed and then release the throttle a split second, and when i accelerate back. It feels like the car...
  2. Sluggishness and camshaft sensor

    Problems & Issues
    Hi: wondering if anyone has any advice about this problem... 2003 CRV AWD etc. Some years ago the dealer persuaded me that my timing chain need replacing. That was back at about 72000 km (50,000 miles) - very early for timing chain but I now forget the problem. (ever since then I've...
  3. sluggish!!!!!

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Have had the 2010 4wd 2.4 l since new, dealer maintained. It's just horribly sluggish from a stop, the alg is actually dangerous. There's also a flat region in drive between about 40 and 60 without kicking down, and then it is sluggish as well. Now it isn't a NASCAR and I acknowledge that, but...
  4. Sluggish CRV normal?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello, new owner of a high mileage (157k)used 2010 EX AWD. We bought it to use as a third car and not having owned crv's befor bought it based on condition, one owner with all maintenance, a short test drive and then negotiated price. Never really did a long highway test drive. I kinda...
  5. 2016 Honda CRV Touring, inconsistent accel/power

    Performance Modifications
    Not sure if this is common, or a known problem, or if I'm too nitpicky, or imagining it. Sometimes my 2016 Honda CRV has really satisfying acceleration off the line (like maybe I could almost spin the tires) on dry flat concrete. Sometimes acceleration is really sluggish, even while flooring...
  6. Sluggish takeoff/rear end hum

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hi all, I recently bought a 2000 honda crv with 190k on it. Most of the suspension and engine had been rebuilt or had newer parts installed. I've noticed that the rear end developed a hum when making sharp turns or when we would have snow on the ground and the awd would kick in. After reading...
  7. 2016 CRV - does it feel sluggish or does it have enough power?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi - I've been thinking about trading my 2014 Accord EX-L V6 for a 2016 CRV Touring. Previously had a 2013 Pilot. I am worried that the CRV will feel sluggish or slow compared to the V6 vehicles I have owned. I like my cars to move, when I press the gas. :) Thanks.
  8. Climate control - Sluggish acceleration

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, We have been experiencing warmer weather and have just turned on my climate control. The acceleration from stop stop seems sluggish for the first 3000rpm and then opens up and accelerates faster from there onwards. I have taken it to 2 dealerships and they both said its normal but I am...

  10. CR-V Runs Sluggish After Timing Belt Change

    Problems & Issues
    Hi I just replaced the timing belt, AC, PS,and ALT belts and spark plugs on my 2000 CR-V/4AT. Triple checked that the timing marks on the cams and crank were spot on. (used the pin in cam/clamp the belts method) The engine starts fine, and sounds like it's running OK, but take off is a bit...

  12. Sluggish jumpy acceleration

    Problems & Issues
    Hi I have a 59 manual 2.2 CDTi, it's got about 22000 miles on it. When I accelerate fast it feels like the engine is holding back then it kicks in and there is a slight jumping sensation. It feels almost like I'm driving an automatic car and it's changing up gears! I don't really know how...
  13. 09 CRV 2WD EX sluggish steering normal?

    Problems & Issues
    I noticed the steering is sluggish when you are making a turn on the corner or U-turn. It doesn't rotate quick enough to it's original position. I though since it's brand new that it should loosen up after a few hundered miles. Is this a normal condition for the CRV? My Oddyssey steering wheel...
