  1. Irregular Thumping Sound Driver Tire Well

    Problems & Issues
    I bought a used 2006 CR-V about 3 months ago. And it's been fine until just two days ago when I started hearing a thumping sound coming from what seems to be the driver's side wheel well. This is irregular, does it braking and not braking, acceleration and maintaining speed, turning and going...
  2. Thumping engine noise

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi, Newbie here. My daughter has a 2009 Honda CRV making a thumping noise under the hood. It's random and there is not one single event that makes it happen although it does seem to only happen after she takes her foot off the pedal or at idle. She was able to capture this video which I...

    Problems & Issues
    HELP! I have had my 2006 model CRV since new, and for 10 months had an issue when braking, with a thumping sensation under the brake pedal as though the brake pedal wants to keep smacking my foot. I have had discs and pads changed and just had new calipers.... still there!!!! Honda will not...
  4. Loud, Thumping Windshield Wipers

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    We had quite a rainstorm this weekend, and on high speed the wipers sounded like a rubber mallet pounding the windshield. I'm not sure if part of the noise is the wiper motor itself. Has anyone else noticed this? We've owned many different makes/models of vehicles over the years, and I can't...
  5. Thumping

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I'm a single female, age 58, and have a 97 CR-V with just over 169,500 miles. About six months ago, the car rides like a shopping cart with a bad wheel - thump, thump, thump. It's mostly noticeable at slower speeds, less than 20-30 mph. When I get to "cruising" speed, it seems fine. My brother...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hey Guys/Gals, I bought a 2012 CR-V certified pre-owned from my local Honda dealer in December. Back in January I made an appointment for a thumping noise when applying the brakes, which my wife and I could hear especially at low speeds. At the time they said it was normal, and then the...

    Greetings, I have a 2003 CRV EX with about 96k miles. I bought it in February with 92k miles. Recently I've noticed a rhythmic thumping noise coming from what seems like my front right end. This noise sounds like womp womp womp womp womp while I'm driving. The sound is pretty much always...

  9. Thumping sound when I brake at 30 or more mph

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2014 CRV AWD. I left the car standing for a couple of weeks and then started hearing the thumping noise. I went to the service center, and the guy there told me (without even looking at the car) that if you left it for 2 weeks, then it is rust that is causing this, drive the car for...

    I have a 2006 CRV and about a month ago, I began hearing a thump whenever I make a sharp right turn only--it sounds like it's coming from the front side passenger. Can anyone tell me what this might be? Car has 85,000 miles.
  11. Thumping noise when CR-V (AT) changes gears

    Maintenance and Service
    Folks, Just bought a 2005 CR-V AT, 75K. A few days after inspection I heard a thumping (or hushing) noise on the front of the V. It happens when I drive slowly and it changes gears from 1st to 2nd (it's an automatic). The noise is clutch-like and it is not present when I drive faster and the V...
  12. thumping noise when braking

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi, I'm new to cars in general. I've only had my CRV for 1 year. I was away over the summer and the car sat unused outdoors for the entire time. Driving is fine, but when I brake, I hear a regular thumping sound. The sound is louder when I brake at over 30mph and hardly audible under 30mph...

  14. intermittent thumping in front end

    Problems & Issues
    My CR-V makes a clunking, or thumping, noise in the front when I let off the accelerator. This stops if I lightly step on the brake, but resumes once I let off. The thumping also seems to be in-time with the speed of the vehicle. Anyone experienced this? If so, what are the possible causes?

  16. thumping stops when accelerating

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I'm new here. Sorry if this has been asked and answered already, but I did a few quick searches and it looks like people have had thumping *start* when they accelerate. Mine stops. It is on the drivers side and it sounds like something is wrong with the tire/brakes/suspension until you...

  19. Thumping noise in front end

    Maintenance and Service
    Come to find out, the thumping noise in the front end of my wife's CRV turned out to be warped rotors. They were .008 when checked. Funny thing is the pedal had no vibration at all when the brakes were depressed. They only had 6k on them as well. I think they were a bad set of rotors. If...
