I purchased a 2015 EX AWD in April 2018 with 26,000 miles to replace a 2009 EX totaled in a black ice accident. In October, when it starts getting cool in South Central Pennsylvania, i noticed a vibration in the seat between 40-50 mph at 1100 RPM - traveling on flat roads. I found after a wed search TSB 15 046 that describes a repair to my problem exactly. Does anyone have any experience with this repair? Did it solve the vibration issue? Did it affect gas mileage?

If you found the write up on that TSB, you found that the vibration elimination consisted of three 'modes' that could have been applied.

One fix was said (by Honda) to reduce MPG by a small amount. (0.070- MPG?)

If you look in the SIMILAR THREADS area at the bottom of the page, you might find some additional information.

I had a slight vibration on my 2015 at idle, at a stop light, this past summer summer with the AC cycling.I my not have even noticed it if I hadn't saw and read about this TSB 15 046.

I did take it to the dealer a few weeks back and left it with them to analyze it. I picked it up at the end of the day and they said they needed to check with the Honda Territory service Rep. They said the car was out of warranty by a couple of months and I have 37,500 miles.

I called them yesterday to check what the territory service rep said. He said they would cover it at 70/30. For me the symptom is so minor I am not willing to pay anything for the improvement. If it was covered 100% I probably would have them do it.

Must be these TSB's expire with the cars 3yr 36,000 warranty.

The TSBs don't expire, but warranties do.

IMO Honda did you a favor with the offer.


Remember, TSB means Technical Service Bulletin...a document that is designed to reduce diagnosis and problem resolution time. Independent shops can subscribe to this information as well...

My dealer looked at my 40 month old 23kmi '15 CRV for $140. Upon the need for the TSB to be performed the inspection charge was waived. I'm pretty happy with it. Mine was like mode 3. However TSB 16-053 might be a newer bulletin on the same issue. I just got this done last Wednesday. And you will lose 0.7mpg. It feels so much better to drive I wish I had complained sooner. Since day one I referred to this drivetrain as weird and twitchy. Feels better, to me. Or in my head. Pleased

You and I will not get the transmission mount and radiator isolation cushions unless we pay for them. I'd take the trans mount and throw it in myself. I complained about shaky idle at 4kmi and 11kmi, both time I was told that things were still breaking in. I'd seriously like to see if there is a noticeable difference with the upgraded trans mount.

You need to find a new dealer , the fix falls under the powertrain warranty. They should cover it 100%.

I second SC3 on this one. I took my '15 into the dealer last week, left it for the day, and then had to escalate to the service manager to get them to agree to fix it. If you go to the honda owner's website, then enter 2015 CR-V in the Vehicle Info tab, it should bring up a link to the vibration information that Honda was required to post on their owner's website. It clearly states that Mode 1 is covered under powertrain and mode 2 and 3 are covered under emissions warranties. This is new as of November-ish, so it just means you need to be knowledgeable because the service reps certainly aren't.
