mine is a 2015 CRV with 120K
Is there any product bulletin or product out on this and what is the advise reaching out to HONDA.
I've seen several older posts about the rattling noise following start up of the CRV. It's happening to my car also, and I brought it to the attention of my car dealer a year ago. He said he couldn't hear anything. Yesterday, (when the car was in for routine maintenance), I was told I need a new...

All opinions welcome, so please sound off.

I purchased my first Honda automobile June 2012 - I researched and thought this was a great reliable car Honda CRV.
