Hello again. I wrote previously about my 2006 CR-V that shakes from side to side when accelerating. It is 4 cyl auto with 111,000 miles on it. It also whines, loudest between 35 and 45 mph. While shaking, the steering does not so much as move or vibrate. Sounded to me like CV joint(s). Two first class shops (not Honda Dealer))(one specifically Honda/Acura, and one general) with the highest reviews and ratings both drove the vehicle and both say it is "probably" CV joints but not entirely sure. They also physically looked and the joints and found no play or anything out the ordinary. Both said it is not a safety issue at this time so just drive it if and until it gets worse. I would, but it drives me crazy. Also, sometimes it does not do it at all. One shop said that the old tires were a safety issue due to age, which was true so I replaced the tires. No effect on shaking at all. When no one seems to know exactly what it is, I do not want to start throwing parts at it. Any thoughts, especially what else might cause this problem. Transmission seems fine, and has been serviced at 60 and 90K.
Also my sister must have dropped something into the dashboard which made its way down to the tunnel between the front seats. Rolls around all the time. No rear seat vents so it is trapped in there. Is there any way to get to it without dismantling the whole center dashboard/console from top to bottom?
Otherwise, this vehicle is in superb condition (also according to both shops) and I could really learn to love this thing even with all the Honda wierdnesses if it weren't for those two things.
Thanks again, Mike
