So who do you believe? Frank, a salesman at a Honda dealership, or the latest Honda video? Clearly stated that the latest modifications addressing the vibration issue are applied to 2016's.Hey guys, Frank here from Honda of Freehold. There was no announced change, and the 16's are on the ground. But while test driving them, I did notice the idle is a little bit higher, and haven't had the issue. If they did fix it, no news about it.

I would deeply appreciate it!
Absolutely. Automaster of Shelburne, VT. Natalie was who I worked with, you could probably ask for herDullers, would you mind sharing which Honda dealership was willing to offer the fix on the 2015 model (with waiver of mileage reduction)? I would deeply appreciate it!
Honda is contradicting itself -they indicate on this video that the issues have been fixed on the 2016 CRV.By the way, I called Honda before I bought the CRV and told them I didn't feel the vibration issues mentioned in so many reviews for 2015 and asked if they fixed the issue for 2016. They said they did not and that certain VIN numbers could possibly have a recall and to have the dealership run the VIN number (I didn't because I felt no vibration)and that test driving was the best way to decide if you notice a vibration. So, I don't know if some people are just more sensitive or if some cars just have more vibration for whatever reason. I tried to find fault, but it was a non issue. I hope this helps someone.
Try driving with air conditioning/heater turned off and no fan going. When you have more items working, the RPMs is higher and at least with the 2015, it was less noticeable. On the 2015, this was considered Mode 1.I bought the 2016 Touring CRV in early December. When I test drove a CRV, I didn't feel any vibration. However, it's clearly there. I noticed it the next day after I got the car. It happens only when the car is stopped and is in gear (like stopping on a red light). It also doesn't happen all the time. Oddly enough, it never happens when the engine is cold, but only once it's warm. I took the car to the dealer a couple of weeks after I bought it, but they said it was normal.
It clearly is not normal. I've driven quite a few cars in my lifetime, and I can definitely say it's not normal. I'm not sure what my options currently are, if any.
Like the spoiler and window/rain guards (not sure the name)!I had 2015 touring canadian crv upgraded to 2016 touring canadian crv last december no vibration, better audio, better led. (Replaced my nokian winter tire with Studded winterforce ....what a big difference in stopping and going on ice and snow ....expensive is not always better.)
