We purchased Our CR-V used with very low miles and love it. We noticed it gets revvved up and sounds louder going down a steeper hill. Can anyone help explain this?
Yes, it does have that, Kurbel. That explains a lot, like my old stick shift; I used to downshift all the time to assist slowing the engine down. Less wear and tear on the brakes. Thanks so much!!Ditto. If your V has the CVT: when going downhill the CVT assists by engine braking, just like in a manual vehicle.
At some point, when hill is too steep and the revs/speed become too high, the CVT "upshifts" and at this point, to maintain speed, you have to use brakes.
You hit the nail on the head! I also got the 30k with transmission serviced and they told me my rear brakes need pads already ?! Unheard of with my previous Honda's (5)I have just recently purchased an off lease 2016 CR-V with the cvt. I’ve never had a cvt before and it does make this noise when going down the street in our neighborhood. It tends to make a groaning noise but if you bump the throttle it “shifts” to another location on the pulley and the noise stops. I hope this machine works for as long as the older ones. In all honesty, I’d much rather have a 4 or 5 speed automatic.
